What a boring match. very few chances, and the most exciting scenes were at the beginning and the end, courtesy of steve the incompetant referee bennett.
On 5 minutes, hull were denied a goal by a terrible decision that friedal had been fouled/impeded- by just looking at his reaction in trying to get the ball that he dropped, you could tell that he knew that he was at fault.
The rest of the game was very uninteresting, however with 2 minutes to go, Villa score- Michael Ricketts, poor defending, and it looked like Villa were going to win from another late goal.
And then the penalty controversy- firstly, what was Ashley Young doing, putting his hand up. And how could the referee give a penalty- he was vertially unsighted looking at the evidence, and giving the penalty without consolting the linesman, who were not signalling for a penalty, was always highly controversial. Can i say that it was fantastically brave (and confident) of the referee to change his mind- it was not a penalty, as his linesmen informed him- although he should have consulted his linesman first. Hull cannot feel agreived about this, as the correct decision was (eventually) acheived- it hit the crossbar, not the hand.
To conclude, a boring game, which neither team deserved to win- 0-0 would have been a fair result, as both teams were poor.
