Bilicis starting to become quite annoying now, moaning about correct decisions.
you could even make a case that the ref gave them the biggest break of the game, offside players goes for the ball on the first goal.

the post you quoted was just after the Gibbs challenge.
i agree, the lino needed to give the handball.

The penalty is a penalty, and a red. Jakup-whathisname going kamikaze out of his goal was stupid.
Interesting that Huddlestone didn't get booked for consciously elbowing Walcott in the back of the head. Clattenburg even explained that the foul was for a forearm/elbow to the head. Strange really that it doesn't deserve at least a yellow.
A fortunate 3 points for Arsenal when all is said and done. Outside of Sanchez and Koscielny no one really looked on form. Impressed by a few of the Hull players, Robertson, N'diaye and Markovic amongst them.
I see Clattenburg apologised to the Hull players at HT for missing the handball. Fair enough...............but wonder if the lineman apologised too????
maybe, its clear what Gibbs was doing, he had eyes for the man not the ball.
it probably is a pen, i didnt feel he was intentional but its hard not to give it, just interesting it happens in the same game as the other incident.
