It could have been argued that Roma should have had a penalty and Alexander-Arnold sent off on 65 minutes (granted that it would have been harsh) which really would have set the cat amongst the pigeons.

Indeed, although if a penalty against Alexander-Arnold would have been harsh, what the fuck was the one in injury time, at this rate to avoid defenders giving penalties away they are going to have to chop their arms off?

That's why they all started doing that thing of sticking their arms behind their backs, looked like they were doing some kind of ridiculous country dancing

Its not surprising if a player from 2 yards away can leather the ball at your arm which is down by your side and its a penalty.... The arms off is the only solution, marginal gains and all that although could make throw ins difficult?

I couldn't agree more, handball is such a tough thing to police. Is it Ball to hand or hand to ball?

When the ball is crossed into the box at such pace, it always looks accidental but in slow motion looks deliberate.

the refs basically learn the handball rule off EA FIFA .

its the only explanation.

Neither of the two given against Liverpool should have been.

I remember Hoddle juggling the ball in the Notts county penalty area and basically kicking it on to the defenders hand to get us a penalty.  I think we beat them 5 nil or 5 - 1 that day so it didnt matter.

Its all dodgy decisions with handball.  The first leg penalty was really harsh as was that one last night.  All slightly odd refereeing.  I did like Van Dijks response when asked about it.  A very dutch 'Who cares' with proper Schteeve Mclaren intonation.

Except in this instance, at least Virgil Van Dijk is actually Dutch. Unlike the WWTB.

Exeter fans assaulting the 78 year old Lincoln kit man and trouble between the fans after the game too.

idiotic wankers, always thought Exeter fans seemed quite pleasant but I guess a trip to Wembley can mar some fans judgement.

Unfortunately so.

High stakes game+alcohol+occassional attendance supporters=problems.
