If the ball hits a part of the body (knee or head, whatever) and it clearly wasn't going to hit the arm/hand from the original shot or cross but then does because of the ricochet, that to my mind is accidental and no pen.

With the incident on Weds night, yes it did slightly touch Can's head before hitting his arm. However the original cross would still have hit the arm if it hadn't touched his head. The arm was in an unnatural position. That is not accidental and is a penalty.

Can tried to handball it and his head got in the way.

Yes. Can was struggling to say the least to get a head on the ball - at least a head that would make decisive contact, and so he did what players do now; he made sure his arm was there as a back up and guarantee that the ball would go no further. In other words his intent was to commit an offence if necessary and that's a penalty.

Remember when Walker took that really bizarre shot from 30 yards away and it just didn't make sense? Why would he do that, he doesn't usually, it was a waste of a corner - and they cut to Pep and he wasn't annoyed like he would normally be.

Well it' looks like we were trying to do the routine that Foden scored from and messed it up.


Good shout almost an unplanned dress rehearsal so to speak

The guy who blocked the first attempt (Dahoud) had just been substituted when we won the corner. Wasn't there to disrupt Phil on the next go.

IMO we were the better side over the two-game competition and deserved to go through.

But refereeing in both games was fucking awful. But for once, referring errors mostly went our way.
