Never in a million years in my opinion but Howard Webb decided to award it after Berbatov fell to the ground very easily after the challenge from Agger. I thought the ref had to be 100% sure when they awarded a penalty and there was no way Webb can say he was 100% sure. Added to that, the refs assistant was in a perfect position to see that challenge and he did not wave to award it meaning that he did not think it was a penalty.

On Saturday, Theo Walcott was in a similar position to Berbatov and he came out and said he dived to win a penalty for Arsenal against Leeds. Berbatov has come out and said that it was a penalty and he has obviously been backed by Alex Ferguson. King Kenny does not agree with the both of them as he feels it was never a penalty. Knowing Roy Hodgson, he would have said, “Yes I think it was!”

But what is done is done and we just have to put that game behind us and move on.

Was that a penalty?
