The controversy of this ‘play’ was highlighted by the broadcasting team on Talksport.
All the rep0rters were watching the play. Some on monitors in the studio, some live in the stadium. But virtually each of them had a different take on the incident.
To me it looked like Anelka initially toyed with the idea of tapping the ball to the keeper’s right and running round his left; but then he realizes he’s over-hit it, players are advancing all over the shop and decides to fake an obstruction by charging head on into the static Everton goalie.
What say you?
