Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Liverpool v. Arsenal
The lack of penalty call was shocking. Rarely do you pick up the papers the next day and see them all agree a penalty was iron clad, but today they do.

I think Bendtner was not trying to get out of the way but trying to flick Cesc's ball into the net and got it all wrong. It may not matter in the end - even if he managed to jump over it, it may have still gotten the offside call.

Liverpool's away goal may very well prove decisive. But, as counterintuitive as this may sound, I am more comfortable with Arsenal chasing the away goal at Anfield. Coming from behind is something they seem to excel at, protecting a lead, not so much. The downside of course is Robin v. Persie has re-injured his thigh leaving attacking options limited again.
