I have tried not to copy the likes of Mark Lawrenson with comments such as "the game's gone" but if that was a foul that ensured Brighton got a late penalty against Liverpool, then I truly do not understand what has happened to the game I grew up loving.
It doesn't matter which team is involved, or which player. If a defender attempts to kick a ball clear of danger, misses the ball, but accidentally glances the foot of an opposition player; that is not a penalty. Not in my book. Not in the game I have watched . . .
