Solsjkaers was weird from where I was sat (on way home now) looked like Schwarzer had let go of the ball but I've not seen replay so not sure. As for having a clear swing at the ball, if he had rolled it a few feet to kick it off the deck and Solskjaer had nicked it off him, would that not have stood? Or if he rolled it to a defender and it was intercepted? Neither time would he have had a swing so it must be one of them funny rules.
Not seen the pen either but at the time it looked like O'Shea had won the ball but I was on the halfway line. Radio says it was a penalty though so it prolly was.
Poor game to watch, United looked tired and aimless throughout.
Agree chris, funny as i always thought that if the keeper didnt have full control of the ball than it could be taken away. The leg wasnt too high to take it away and in my opinion a very clever move but hey, more rules to make ingenious gameplay a thing of the past.
Too much emphasis made on complaints from the other team.
Alan Shearer confirmed the rule on MOTD tonight, it was an offence by Solsjkaer. And it should have been a penalty to Middlesbro at the end. How many teams get penalties at Old Trafford? (Apart from Man U)
Chelsea were as bad today as United were yesterday, and as for the ref at Old Trafford [:0] my God, he needs demoting to the Conference, how the hell did he miss Boro's penalty shout? it was stone wall, and i'm a United fan.
Solskjaer's goal should not have counted. According to FIFA rules it is an offence to prevent a goalkeeper releasing the ball from his hands, the releasing of the ball from his hands and the kicking of the ball is considered to be a single action.
