I was bemoaning the fact to my boss, who just happens to be a Liverpool supporter, that we had not had one penalty all season. His answer was "You don't get in the box enough!!" Won't tell you what I did to him but he just might be right!!

Let’s not get started on legitimate dissallowed goals (Blackburn, West Ham etc...)!!
Is it just me but whilst we do not always get the rub of the green with ref decisions (eg go to independant website www.rightresult.net), the RS seem to get decisions in their favour all the time ... both legs against Inter’s 10 men, Arsenal’s blatent pen not given last night and against us earlier in the season?

Nice to see that Raffles never let’s you down. It wasn’t a "clear enough" penalty. He must be right because the ref agreed with him - how unusual.

In fairness the ref had a decent game until the penalty; that was shocking and another piece of evidence that tells us the media, the officials, the FA, FIFA and anyone else who is up their arses won’t be happy until the shite are winning everything; home and abroad!

From what was witnessed at the end of the Fiorentina game maybe that’s not a bad thing but in all seriousness somethink stinks about it.
How could a team have got through three quarters of the season and not have one awared at any time? It can’t be a coincidence.
There was a time in the 1980’s over at Anfield when an oppositon team being given a penalty was as rare as halley’s comet.
Even today twenty years on, we seldom see opposition teams get the rub of the green there, or at Old Trafford even.
I no longer believe in fair and impartial refereeing. You only have to look back to the Clattenburg disaster for a prime example.
It looks like we will have to endure a whole season without one penalty awarded. Is there some prize for that unwanted accolade?

5th place instead of 4th!

"The sub-plot was extraordinary too: the Dutch referee Pieter Vink, who failed to give a penalty when Kuyt pulled down Hleb, comes from a village just a few miles from the hometown of the Liverpool striker.
No allegations of favouritism are being made of course, but Vink lived up to his nickname when he failed to see the tug by Kuyt on Hleb in the 66th minute. When he is not on duty as a policeman, Vink?s friends call him "Blind" which means exactly the same in Dutch as it does in English. In only his sixth Champions League game it was unfortunate that he had failed to spot an incident that unfolded less than 10 yards in front of him."
Devil?s Luck again it appears...

I believe that we should all follow Baloo?s example and get in the box more often unless the pitch is waterlogged.
