Am intrigued by this train of thought.. Personally think it's a product of the slow motion replay generation.
Watch it at full speed ffs, it's well hammered at him, hardly like a dipsy little shot he parried round the bar ffs.
Explain to me how a bloke in his situation has the time to cosciously make a decision to handle the ball.
I mean, if you imbue in Kewell the ability to make a conscious decision in that time frame, the we should imbue in the ref the ability to see it hit his bicep, and even if his arm was beside him, would still have hit him on the arm. Ah well.
As I said to Sledger mate, put him in a white shirt 24 hours earlier and you'd be busting your balls over it.
Still, we had chances to win, and was a great effort a player down. ****, how great if Ghana did the impossible next game and we won?
Can't see it mind, we need the Krauts to do a number on Ghana and we the same on Serbia.
Am nervous, relying on Germans for anything other than automotive excellence.
