Klippety is being a bit of a prick over the (pretty clear) penalty. From the Guardian:

'“I didn’t think it was a penalty, did you?” the manager said, inviting a show of hands in the press room. More hands went up than not, even in the Anfield press room, which left Klopp to reflect on the first rule of politics – never ask a question to which you do not know the answer. “OK, obviously you all thought it was a penalty,” Klopp said, a little sheepishly. '

I don't think it was a penalty, you see that kind of situation in practically every game without a pen being given. Having said that, if you're playing Lovren, Mignolet, and Klavan, as a team you have to be looking to score more than one goal in every game.

Actually I wasn't sure it was a penalty yesterday but, looking back today, it is in my view. He certainly pushes him from behind and, if he really didn't want to gain an advantage from that, then don;t do it.

Somewhat predictably, I don't think it was a penalty. I don't know how to embed a gif otherwise I'd have this https://i.imgur.com/E3OWDbz.gif on. CL is moving away from the ball, into Lovren so that he can throw himself down. If it was an offence it was a foul against Lovren, almost Owenesque in quality.

Putting your hands there leaves you open to it these days sadly and he could have been more savvy but the cunt went down like a sack of tatties.

Perception is your strong point.

Don't get me wrong, I think he played for it - but Lovren absolutely served it up for him on a platter. Because he's a thick, clumsy twat.

You could clearly see Lovren's arm push into the back of the player running at pace. Clear pen. Not even a debate for me.

As Shearer and Murphy said, clear penalty. Not even up for debate.

I bet RAWK has got a team of volunteer Norwegian lawyers working around the clock on it right now. Embarrassing.

As embarrassing as Everton employing a bent manager?
