We've went the longest in the league without getting a penalty, then just like busses....

Im meaning more fir this specific game. We have been giving away penalties left right and centre over the past few weeks (6 penalties, 1 for glentoran, 2 for coleraine  1 for hapoel and jow 2 for ramgers.) There is just something not right *cough* Lamie *cough* with our defence.

I watch games nowadays and don't actually know what a penalty is anymore. 

The first ones very soft, the player ducks and it hits the defenders arm, the second one it hits his elbow while his arm's next to his body. If that's a penalty where are his arms supposed to go? 

Madden couldn't wait to give either award. 

 

The Motherwell player is pushed in the back in the box - no penalty. 

The rules are very weird now surrounding penalties.

Totally agree on both points and from a neutral viewpoint as well. 

Its the rules that are clearly wrong. Both Motherwell players who've given the penalties away know absolutely nothing about either incident. 

Common sense dictates that shouldn't be a penalty.

A good first half performance and hopefully from here we can just manage the game and see it out without any concerns.

First penalty is a stonewaller, second penalty is more open to interpretation but I think every fan would be kidding themselves if they don’t say they’d be claiming it for their team.

Having seen it back Motherwell's is as blatent as they come. A clear shove in the back from Kamara. The tread on the calf was a result of his push and was accidental.

We're fucking shite. Hopefully by the time fans are allowed back Lamie has been fired into the sun so that I don't have to see him play for us in person.

Our usual shambolic defending.

Could have been 1 down in minute in when O'Donnell fails to mark Morelos at a free kick.

Both penalties are sloppy. Got to be working on body and arm position on the training ground. From the number of pens we have conceded it is clear the team are failing in the basics of defending.

Jones goal is Lamie not being smart. Pushing up too high and wide. If Jones is going to beat him for pace don't give him a free run inside.

I'm not surprised we are getting horsed.

4-3-3 for the second half. OK Robbo. Might as well go out and try to do something.

Don’t know if today is the day for it but I would like to see us drop a wing back and play Long and Watt upfront with Lang supporting.  More suitable for the next 4 games.

Turns out today is the day

I think it would’ve been in the soft category, but yes, I think we were probably lucky to get away with it when seeing the replay from the nearside touchline.

Edit: to add, just in case you were referring to the Lang one, no, that was a dive.

I take it Boyd was raging at the officials for the two penalty claims for Motherwell at half time.

FFS don't try and cross the ball into the box for a header, just hit it off the opponent's hand. It's the 'new game' don't you know?

Yes I'm sure performance against an out of retirement-esque player makes up for the years of drivel.
