We see handballs like this being given as penalties and yet last season we witnessed the likes of TAA, Andy Robertson and VVD being let off scott free with the most blatant deliberate hand balls we will ever see, and we just how much the club you play for affects decision making.

I'm confused where this hand above shoulder height thing has come from, it literally says on the IFAB website it's handball if:

touches the ball with their hand/arm when:

the hand/arm is above/beyond their shoulder level (unless the player deliberately plays the ball which then touches their hand/arm)

The above offences apply even if the ball touches a player’s hand/arm directly from the head or body (including the foot) of another player who is close.

Xavi - I'm not sure I understand your point. Can you clarify what you are confused with?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Yeah sorry I meant when not facing, it was too early
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Haha yeah that makes more sense. Billy and Sandy found an article in a tabloid that mentions it (without quotes from the IFAB) and have decided that it must be in the laws.

Why don’t Spurs appeal ?
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Let`s be fair Don, Spurs are going to be royally done over by the officials this week with games against Chelsea and United coming up. I have all but given up with the game, it is so corrupt and bent now, with ridiculous rules that are favouring a few. No way would that ref have given that as a penalty yesterday had that been at Old Trafford or Anfield.

There is nothing in the law which states extra leeway is giving to players who aren't looking, that is one article from the independent, notice no quotes of the law, just the writer saying it. Even if there was, it wouldn't have changed anything considering he had his arm in the air, above his head.

This. You can turn your back to the ball and still intentionally raise an arm make your body un-naturally bigger to block a possible route to goal. Makes no difference on whether you can see the ball or not.

They explained this on motd last night.

FIFA want unification across all leagues. Spain awarded sommat like 50 pens for handball last season, the Prem 20.

Refs are bringing us online with Europe.

Still showing!t though.

I heard a whisper that Harry Kane was shown a red card yesterday after the game due to an exchange in the tunnel

Is there any truth in that? Can't see anything on skysports

I thought our one was bad the Palace one was even worse.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Yep!

Don’t think Diers was a pen but at least his hands were up in the air, the palace players were down by his side!

yeah, arguably our one against Southampton was more harsh as it was deflected onto the arm, just we put away chances so it didnt matter that day.

the free kick that led to the pen sums up modern football and refs though, Joelinton throwing himself and Hojbjerg taking him out, while the ref is looking the otherway, turns to see him on the floor so just guesses the foul. disgusting, decisions in this division will continue to cost teams value points and therefore money.
