SETTLE A DEBATE

Should Stuart Attwell have let Dirk Kuyt’s goal stand?

More importantly, why is he still reffing the Premier League?

The suits at the Professional Game Match Officials organisation reckon so, yesterday issuing a statement confirming Attwell had not broken the Laws of the Game. But what do YOU think? Consider the following:

1. It’s Stuart Attwell

2. Michael Turner killed and then played the ball from the exact spot the free-kick was given, rather than leaving it and calling for the goalkeeper

3. In Stuart’s World, this is a yellow card challenge

4. That dashing gent David Ginola says it was a fair goal

5. It’s Stuart Attwell

    Stuart Atwell is to refereeing what Dirk Kuyt is to football.

    Stuart Atwell is to refereeing what Wayne Rooney is to faithfulness.

    Perfectly good goal.

    As stated, and is glaringly obvious in the replay: “Michael Turner killed and then played the ball from the exact spot the free-kick was given, rather than leaving it and calling for the goalkeeper”

    Personally I think Turner meant to take the kick and scuffed it, or though the keeper was much closer than he really was. Either way, he clearly played it and there is no indication that it was meant as a back pass.

    Gerrard should have got a red card.
