    no, actually, it is against the rules of the game. don’t have the time to find it now, but I remember players are not allowed to interfere with the keeper when he plays the ball back into the game. the ball is also in his posession when he bounces it off the ground or releases to hoof away. it’s not illegal when it’s put up in the air and bounces off the ground.

    Why does it seem that Arsenal always pull this sort of crap. I remember Henry doing almost the very same thing. It’s cheap and dirty and NOT CREATIVE AT ALL!!! And there’s a good chance of injuring the goalkeeper when he swings through at nothing.

    I’m a hardcore United fan, but I think that goal should’ve stood, simply because if a goalie is fool enough to let that happen to him, he deserves to concede a goal.

    Thought it was brilliant, but wouldn’t have been pleased if it was against my team. So good decision.

    Whether or not it should count, surely players know by now that the referee isn’t going to give it.
