The penalty is a tougher one to call. I'd need an impartial viewer to give me their opinion, because I think he goes down far too easily; the ref should have yellow carded him for diving and given us a free kick instead of allowing play to continue. I'm biased though, obviously.
Technically it was. But if you watch the video you can see ref moving whistle to his mouth before the ball is kicked into the net.http://goal91.com/soccer-360/disallowed ... 45160.html
How you can say Brereton went down too easy? He was clearly fouled (by Johnson I think?) who made no attempt to get the ball. Penalty all day long. Turns out it doesn't matter as we scored from the resultant corner anyway.
Come off it
yeah I'm sure all your players who were looking at the ball sensed the referee moving the whistle to his mouth and each of them made a considered decision in the 0.3 seconds in between then and the ball hitting the roof of the net to stop playing, otherwise of course someone would have heroically blocked Johnson's shot.
It's a soft penalty if it's given, there's no doubt about it. The doubt lies around if it should have been considered a dive. If that happened in your half there's no way he'd go down like he's been shot, so in my opinion it is a dive.
