Quoted from GrimExile
How the hell that Japanese girl could have got her arm out of the way when the ball is blasted at her from less than 2 yards I will never know. Not only was a penalty then given but she was then yellow carded. If that was a penalty then the laws need changing. I am no referee but surely there has to be some sort of intention regarding handball. Crazy in my view.

Rant over, now for the red crosses!!!!


I haven't seen the incident, but in general it is getting daft.

Players are now trying to challenge in the box with their hands behind their backs, in case the ball accidentally strikes the hand.

When the laws were made, they were to prevent players deliberately gaining an advantage by cheating. We are now in a position were the ball hits a hand accidentally and its a penalty, so in effect a goal. We now have the offside law being interpreted that a toe or an arm being offside is enough to prevent a goalscoring opportunity. The laws were not made for that, and the current interpretation of them is not in the spirit of the game.

Agree with Grim on the penalty decision. Daft rule. It wasn’t really her arm either. More the armpit area.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

HT  Norway 0-2 England

Yeah under the new rules Norway should probably have had a penalty but we also hit the post.

Great scenes a Glastonbury when England scored.

These days it's handball (apparently although the commentator has just said not because it hit the leg first) and penalty but she clearly couldn't get out the way... Anyway I'm genuinely really enjoying watching the lionesses, apart from the last world cup it's the first time I've really watched a team religiously through a tournament
