    I had to snigger when it was pointed out to Alan Shearer on "Match of the Day" that there had been contact on Mané, Shearer shrugged and said "it's a physical game."

    I'm sure that Shearer didn't express this opinion when he was tripped in the penalty area in his playing days! :D

    Read the Arsenal one - some very happy we won that game, they have a desire for top 4. Someone even posted about getting Rodgers over to Arsenal because of what they think he is capable of doing with their front 3.

    Just adding someone in the United Forum had this to say about our win:

    The only silver lining is the better Liverpool do, the worse it is for Woody et al.

    Exactly. Contact on the leg and prevention of further play is a penalty anytime. BR would fume I am sure if he didn't get a penalty if his players were "contacted" in the box too.

    I wonder how many Newton’s there are between being normal contact in a contact sport and a foul in Mr Shearers world and would that figure change if he was watching Newcastle?

    Albrighton's knee clearly pushes into Mane's leg and although it might not be enough to bring him down it obviously stops him moving forward (try it with your partner!) and is therefore a foul. Had Mane not gone down to emphasis this however, I doubt a penalty would have been given. Playing on (or trying to) wins you nothing these days, not even respect.

    There's a video on here on him having made exactly the same type of challenge, 3 or 4 times ? All are shown anyway.

    The ref gave a foul AGAINST Mane earlier when in an attacking position for less contact than that. So it goes. It is a penalty.

    “Saying nothing”. Right.

    Can’t stand Lineker. And MOTD need some less miserable pundits.
