It’s the rule that’s dodgy. Penalties are basically a guaranteed goal these days. If takers are going to be stuttering and jumping in their run-ups, keepers should be allowed to move where they like at the start of the run-up, not when the ball is struck.

Agree on that. The decision to overturn the West Brom pen is the dodgy bit. Not sure why he didn't just avoid giving it to begin with.

Was thinking that. The way Fernandes takes that penalty makes staying on the line almost impossible. Keeper was miles off on the retake too.

It’s absolutely part of the plan. Means he gets two goes if the first one doesn’t work because the keeper has already moved. Bit like “clever” tax accouting - not illegal, but he’s still a **** for doing it
