Hey sublime, I assume you watched the second leg of Arsenal/Liverpool. I mean what's going on? I thought the PK decision was horrendous, particularly when you take into account the failure of one to be called, when Kuyt brought down Hleb in the box, in the first leg.

Gerard Houllier said, "From a personal point of view I was happy Liverpool won but I also felt for my friend Arsene because over the two legs he deserved at least as much to win as Liverpool," he said."To me it was a clear-cut penalty in the first leg and then one was given against them in the second leg. That's why he was not happy. At the top level a decision like that can make you or break you."

He sure is right about that. After all that went on in Italy and now Porto is being investigated, it just makes one wonder. I don't mind seeing my team lose fair and square, but because of a controversial referees decision? That bothers me.
Yeah, but as they say "thats football."

Video refs are the way foward, but the FA is too backward to change the current system.
