Hello. I'm hoping that someone can tell me why Watson was not credited with the goal against man city, and kolarov og was given? Reading the Fifa rules it states that...
' If a goal-bound shot accidentally bounces off a opposing player into the opponent's goal, the goal will be awarded to the player who strikes the ball if that shot is on target'
Watsons shot was on target yet all media sources are claiming kolarov own goal?? Reason I ask is that I had £10 on Watson at 70/1

Maybe it wasn't classed as a shot as it was a corner? Seems a bit harsh on you anyway mate

Macclesfield Town/Manchester City. It's complicated.
They make it up as they go along.

WATFORD
He almost scored on Monday but at the near post.

I am just glad we have somebody who is able to take a decent corner!

Kolarov had him himself at 16/1 with a £10k bet which is more than you so tough luck.............your own fault for a stupid bet.

This was true last time I checked. won £300+ from a first goalscorer scorecast with RVP scoring first (for Arsenal) and us beating Liverpool 2-1. We scored an own goal first then went on to win with RVP scoring next. Thought I didn't win anything until I check a week later.
