But still a foul imo. He didn't have to go down like he did but its a foul. 

This is where football has gone ridiculous, there is contact but he hasn't "fouled" him has he? 

 

I have no sympathy because footballers have bought this on themselves with their behaviour over the last 10/15 years. It's basically basketball in the box.

 

Still funny seeing Klopp crying though, hypocrisy at its finest.

Given the penalities Liverpool have had for their being "contact" Klopp. doesnt have any basis for complaints but he will. 

 

Football is a joke though. Contact doesn't have to be foul every time FFS. 

Well it doesn't really work like that because two wrongs don't make a right.

 

Football is all over the place at the minute. Is that a clear foul or just accidental/clumsy? I feel like those sorts of things happens all the time in a game. We're gonna get to a point where VAR reviews everything. 

 

Either way, whatever people think, everything looks worse in slow motion which is a problem also because it's not played in slow motion.

On the flip side its easily given as a free kick anywhere else on the pitch so why shouldn't it be a penalty?

Yeah, I'm not disagreeing with that but there's a lot of things they give for free kicks and not penalties. White got booked for a perfect challenge. No review on that though because it's not in the penalty area.

It’s not a pen because it wasn’t given by the on field ref 

 

if he gives it then it stays a pen 

 

the referee has to keep control of the decisions and var is only there if makes a massive cock up. - we have people here that think it is and people here that think it isn’t - hence it is a clear error not to give it, just as it wouldn’t be if he did give it.

Yeah this is true. They've lost that 'clear and obvious' remit
