    I watched the whole thing on MotD again. The defender definitely catches him - twice - but the way Young went down was appalling.

    He is the league's leading penalty winner. (No jokes, saw the stats lying around somewhere, will see if I can dig them up again)

    Yeah, for the last two seasons though, not for just this season I think.

    Difference between Young and Suarez is that Young actually wins penalties. Suarez just gets yellow cards

    The problem I've got with "winning penalties" is players that drag their legs to force contact. If you plant a wooden pole in the penalty area and players comes running along, dabs the ball to the left of the pole, sticks his leg out to trip himself up on the pole and goes down. Is that a penalty?

    If there is contact then its a penalty. I don't understand that. If the defender doesn't put a foot in ie makes an actual challenge on the attacking player how can he foul him.

    Not really interested in a lengthy debate about the Young incident, just thought I'd add my 2 cents on penalties in general.

    Haven't watched all of it, but will check it out later. It's clear that a lot of players look for that contact to "win" penalties. It's not a right or wrong situation for me. Part of football sure, just not a part that I like very much.

    Second week and you keep missing by one goal. Tip: Lower your prediction by one goal

    Apparently Ferguson has warned Young to not dive again.
    Procrastination. I'll find a signature for this later.

    Dive plain and simple, the defender stood his ground (didn't stick a foot out) and young falls over him, but then again look at Barca vs AC match, a mere touch or foot and the player rolls over and penalty...

    I just realised, with 4 games still to go, we've already got more points than last season (80) and wins (23)
