Ole needs to make a point of that ABSOLUTE sh*t show from Atkinson, without getting himself in trouble.
If those aren’t penalties for Ronaldo they need to make fecking sure they aren’t penalties for ANYBODY else, that’s the line I would take if I were Ole.
Not because the rules are different for Ronaldo but to the contrary, if they aren’t pens today they need make sure they aren’t pens going forward (which they won’t because they are fecking stone wall!)
Still remains true what I thought years ago. Most refs are just incompetent when they make a mistake, this guy is biased. He's been at it for years and its always against or in favour of the same teams.
1st penalty shout wasn't a pen IMO. You can see Ronaldo change direction to initiate contact instead of following the ball. The 2nd one was a much more solid shout. Zouma's caught him clearly and got nowhere near the ball, and Ronaldo hasn't tried to play for it. I really thought that would be given. It's a poor challenge.
The Shaw handball is silliness though. You can't make that kind of attempt to block a cross without your arms out. He didn't move hand to ball nor has he done it make himself bigger, they were in a natural position given the circumstances, and the ball was struck against his arm from less than a couple of yards. What is he supposed to do? You don't play football with your hands by your side, nor should you be expected to.
