Mate' date=' if it wasn't for that bent ref we'd have won!![/quote']

You didn't score though? So draw perhaps?

Anyway you know that for the penalty, if he gave a free kick, Ambrose would have smashed it in.

Re: FA Cup

Forest at home today :) Believe in our lads to get us through to the next round! :D

Phil Brown is expecting to bring in around six new names, with Sean Gregan the fans choice. Im not there today as Ive been given the day off due to dwindling ticket sales. Id like a decent cup run but the league has to be priority.

Re: FA Cup

Possibly the softest penalty I've ever seen given. Only against Leeds. If it hadn't be the for farce seconds before it would never have been given.

Dowd is a complete tosspot. Can't handle big games.

same old same old , love it how he attempted to give a penalty when it was a offside then for the second allowed walcott to run on for about 6 yards untill the play was dead before giving it , just annoys me how if a crowd of that size gets on the back of the ref they feel inclined to please the crowd and award the penalty feeling a bit let down to be honest.

Re: FA Cup

I thought the second one was a penalty' date=' he clearly tugged on Walcott's arm and stopped him getting a clear shot on goal.

i'm sorry but in all fairness it was a very very light tug at that and to be honest after the initial 'tug' he pulled his momentum forward and continued with the run before finally having the run saved , im not going to argue all day i'm just making my point if arsenal where one nil up and that had happened up the other end what would the out come of been personally i think that the ref would have waved it away :rolleyes:

It was only a slight tug but it knocked Walcott off balance, he would have had a much simpler chance without it. His momentum carried him forward, but he was falling when he went for goal.

So because a player stayed on his feet your saying its not a foul. He tugged him, simple as. Id be infuriated to if a villa player did that, but at the end of the day that is a penalty, and just because Walcott didnt go down doesnt change that fact. He played the advantage and played it well IMO.

That tug did effect his direction and momentum, whether he would of finished is another story and irrelevant anyway.

It was a penalty.... :o

Did yourselves proud though ! You lot should rough em up, up north :P

As a neutral and referee myself I can tell you that it was a clear foul and penalty was the right decision. When a player is running at speed even the smallest tug on a shirt will put a player off balance and affect their chance of scoring. Phil Dowd is a very good referee and extremely strong willed man. He would certainly not be influenced by a previous occurrence. If anyone should be blamed it should be the Leeds player who made the needless tug in the first place.

alright alright alright lads back off back off :P

ill give in but to be fair i think it was light , but in general i think leeds played well today we absorbed the arsenal pressure quite well if we can go back and do that in the replay then i think we have a genuine chance of getting that 1-0 or 2-1 win over arsenal :)

Re: FA Cup

It was a penalty, however tugs like that happen at every single corner, every single free-kick, all the bleeding time, and they are never given.

If it hadn't been the for the mess up seconds earlier where he thought the lino flagged for a penalty then I doubt he would have given the penalty.

Tbh I'm gutted. A draw is the worst possible result, just more frickin' fixture congestion.
