That's it?  He punches the ball as he's falling, course it's handball.  It's not accidental either.

Aye, then your hands go down, not one down the other in a random horizontal direction that just happens to be where the ball is.

Isn’t any touch on the hand illegal in goal buildup now? Doesn’t matter about intention. 

Stupid rule like.

:lol: I can't see how anyone can view that as not accidental handball, if it's handball at all

Handball rule is the biggest pile of s*** going. Surely they’ll have to change this to deliberate handball only.

It's not a natural falling reaction at all, he literally punches the ball :lol:

I've no idea how I would fall after 3 men tried to foul me and another player about to kick a football really hard at me. To me it looks like he's trying not to handball it.

I think you're missing the very obvious point that the reason he's falling down is because he was fouled.  Why should he get punished for that?

Is this Giggs? I can't say I've seen any discussion about it.

Why the f*** would you implement this?

Incentivising fouling is certainly usual.

Same system as now, just adding a coin slot on the video booth.

The irony that in a season of technology, Villa stay up thanks to the one time it fails.

Actually, had VAR done it’s job correctly here earlier in the season, that Schar goal would have been disallowed and Watford would be safe. Ouch. :lol:
