Burnley 2nd Goal & If

Recommended Posts

How could the 2nd goal stand. The ref blew the whistle for the free kick, a Burnley player picks the ball up, bounces it a couple of times, replaces it, then the kick is taken and in it goes. What is going on? What another fantastic performance from our boys. They kept Burnley out for 25 minutes and from only a couple of attacks, they somehow managed to score two goals. Wardy was so unfortunate with the first and the ball just had to fall to one of their feet when it was not cleared. With Miller's shot just wide, and a block at the goal, the scores deserved to be level at half time. What a great move for our goal and it was worth the trip just for that. Moments later we could of had an equaliser. Their third goal was a killer but how we did not get a penalty for hand ball when the ball was crossed from the left. In the last 10 mins, they peppered our goal and it was good to hear the final whistle when we knew there was no way back. Walking away from the ground, the Burnlay fans said that the scoreline flattered them. It was good to see so many of them stay behind to applaud our team. Something we will never know is what the result would have been if some other members of the team would of been available to play. Those who did play however can be very proud of the way they played today.

Phil Old Boy: regarding you point about the Clarets second goal. Surely as soon as the ref blows his whistle the ball is in play?! So when he bounced it it is handball.<p>Goober

Nice try Goober, but the ball isn't in play from a direct free kick until it has been *kicked* and travelled it's own circumfrence.<p>The bouncing of the ball is a signal that a lot of league teams seem to use.
