Handball?

Handball?

In the heat of the battle yesterday, it almost slipped my attention that we should have had a penalty as there was so much going on.

But it didn`t escape the attention of Dickson Etuhu who was involved in quite a vehement exchange with the referee,

After the game, Dickson continued to express his disappointment that a clear-cut penalty wasn`t given, remarking,

"It was handball. I was right there and he handled it."

"The referee knows I had a word with him and he said 'Listen, I didn`t see it and if it was a handball then I`m sorry."

"And I said to him 'Sorry isn`t good enough`

"It was the defining moment. If we had got a penalty, we`d probably have got the goal and it would have been tight at the end."

"The way it ended, we got punished with a third goal as we had to go for it. It`s hard to take."


Indeed, it was hard to take but, like I inferred in my match report yesterday, things are looking brighter for Fulham, with Dickson further adding,

"We deserved to win the game the way we played. We were the better team. We did the right things and we are heading in the right direction. I`m sure we`ll start moving up the table soon."

I`m not sure, I`m certain!

You did play well, and were a bit unlucky. As for the penalty, it probably was one, but also the foul by Sidwell on Parker in the box went unpunished, and there was a good case for a penalty there as well. Etuhu might think of that when he uses his selective judgement to tell the referee sorry isn't good enough.

Well fair play to Kyle Walker who was ******** kicked in a head by Clint Dempsey before he even realised he was handballing. Srsly, lets not blame the lad, it's only our fault we haven't scored two or three sitters!
