3rd tier though. Yikes. Never been that low and never will be.

If not being in League One is honestly considered an achievement then Dundee are in a far worse state than I realised.

There’s no point getting raging at refereeing decisions. Can’t think of many or even one where the ref has changed his mind even what it was clear he made an error. People around me blame the ref all the time for the teams failings, clear fouls are shouted down as dives or getting the ball. You get a really good view in the main stand. The first penalty Dow messed up his positioning or misjudged the ball and moved towards it. It was a clear pen but soft because it was needless and totally undeserved on the balance of play. The second one I couldn’t see at the time but Ashcroft was caught out wrong side and tried to make up for it by making a bit of a reckless challenge. f**k it who cares we played the relegated team off the park for most of the game. I’ve seen Cardle win a penalty at Livingston with a clear dive. It balances out.

Nonsense. Cardle has never dived in his life. If he starts any of that now, it will be purely Thistles doing. ;-)

Jeez.  This thread is still a thing.

The first was about as clear a penalty for handball as you'll ever see.

The second was less clear cut, but on balance, also a penalty.  Had it not been given however, there would be no real sense of injustice either.

 

I honestly think this has been fuelled, even for those present at the match by Michael Stewart's nonsensical reading of the decision just before half time.  

The facts that the penalty was so unnecessary, so against the run of play, and following a summer of handball related controversy, probably contributed to what Stewart said.  I still cannot believe however that you get people claiming it shouldn't have been given.

Not a penalty.

So is this going to be a daily post on this thread now?

 

If so, I'm down.

After having a week to review the footage, I’ve changed my mind. Two stonewall penalties. Dow clear handball and the other boy’s went right through the back of Johnson for the second. Should’ve been a red card too.

After a week of reviewing the footage neither were penalties. Time to close the thread with everyone agreeing we got fuckin cheated.
