Not as convinced about the offside as I was "live" but we rarely get the benefit of such decisions so I don't care that it went in our favour regardless of whether it was off or not.

I claimed a pen when Danny went down & I'm more convinced of that now.

Not sure if it was a pen but it was a bump and def wasn't a yellow card for diving, you can clearly see Mullen got bumped over. Just because the ref doesn't see it as a pen doesn't mean it has to be a card, sometimes players just get nudged over, trip up, or lose their balance, Danny is just back from a suspension for being over the card limit and that's him with a yellow for nothing.

We had more chances than I remembered, not clear cut ones but quite a few decent ones that could've gone in.

Their offside goal looked like it was going in anyway if their player hadn't touched it, greedy bassa wanting to claim the goal got it disallowed. Laughing

I agree that if the ref doesn't see it as a pen it doesn't mean it's a dive but I would go further - Not all contact is a foul but the other side of that is that not all non-contact is a dive, I've seen players booked for diving when they have simply succeeded in avoiding contact and lost their footing.

On the Mullen incident, it looks to me like a bump in the back rather than a "shoulder challenge" & was deliberately done to knock him over as he was already off balance. It was a silly challenge as Danny was heading away from goal but IMO it should have been a pen & booking Danny for diving was 100% wrong.
