Re: That penalty.

My first reaction to it was benson that was a stupid tackle but when I look at the replay it looks to me that silva leaves his leg and and initiates the contact which for me isn’t a penalty. I’m glad we won because wolves dived and cheated and whinged all game long. What’s everyone else’s thoughts?...
