    Seriously there’s no penalty there, in fact its rooney who is tugging the shirt of the defender and caught his foot as well

      Rooney claimed the PK, which was given by the referee incorrectly. Correct me if I’m wrong but this is pretty much the same scenario as the Eduardo incident, hence this calls for a Rooney 2-match ban doesn’t it? According to Uefa’s new rules…

        Hush,
        I think the referee fella gave the penalty before anyone knew what was going on. What Rooney was doing with his arms raised was to try and avoid an yellow with the ‘Hey, I was pulled too’ routine. But well, it was Christmas time at Wembley!

        Hush…thats utter bollocks

        so is every ref error now or dubious pen going to be compared with Eduardo’s theatrics?????

        Eduardo was completely in the wrong and I am not disputing that. But a 2-match ban for what would normally warrant a yellow card? 3 yellows under Uefa regulations equals to a 1-match ban!

        And, yes, anytime a player ‘wins’ a penalty by decieving the ref he should be retrospectively punished just as Eduardo was. That’s only fair isn’t it?

        Being selective with discpline is what annoys me most.

        Btw I’m not saying Wazza conned the ref into it. Just both situations are very similar and the media/pundit reaction has been anything but.
