Chris Foy's take on the incident below. He feels a caution is correct but doesn't categorise it. (Source: Sky Sports website).

"As has been spoken about over the weekend, there is a potential red card offence for a denial of a goal scoring opportunity (DOGSO), however I don't believe this warrants a dismissal. When the goalkeeper catches the ball, the nearest player is a defender. The positioning of the attacking player is key to the decision, as well as the likelihood of the attacker gaining control of the ball at the moment of the handball offence. The attacking player was not denied an obvious goal scoring opportunity, and I think the correct call on balance is a yellow card."

Why people even both to read, let along regurgitate, the words of these officials of yesteryear is beyond me.

He can't even get the basics right with his support for a sanction that clearly has no justification from within the Laws or the guidance.

The suggestion elsewhere that a player should receive an undeserved card merely to help a referee sell a correct decision of no red card is totally unacceptable.
