I saw it again this morning - the camera angle where Riley is looking straight at the incident, with no one between him and the handball and no interference from anyone, is particularly damning. As I said in my original post, it really is the worst decision I've seen all season - unforgivable. And made more so by the fact that the guy has bottled it - ther can be no other explanation for his failure to give the correct decision. That being the case - he needs sorting out at the highest level.
But this is the point I was making-he cant have bottled it.It was a much braver decision to not
And much stupider too.
Mind you , he wasnt alone yesterday either.
There were a good few iffy ones.
Did you see Muzzy Izzets sending off?I still cant decide if he dived or not, and equally, there doesnt seem to be any possibility acknowledged that he could have fallen over as a result of a fair tackle, without it being a pen or a dive.Having seen it again, I still dont know, but a booking ( and then the red) still seems harsh.
