AFC Bournemouth star Grabban: 'We should have had a penalty'

Bournemouth Echo: HARD DONE BY: Lewis Grabban HARD DONE BY: Lewis Grabban

LEWIS Grabban was convinced Cherries had been on the wrong end of a contentious refereeing decision during their 1-1 draw with Championship high-fliers Burnley on Saturday.

Grabban was sent to ground following a 79th-minute challenge by Clarets defender Kieran Trippier – with the infringement appearing to have been committed inside the penalty area.

However, although referee Graham Scott deemed Trippier had fouled Grabban, the official awarded Cherries a free kick on the edge of the 18-yard box, which Yann Kermorgant subsequently put over the crossbar.

The incident came after Keith Treacy had come off the bench to salvage a point for the visitors, his close-range strike cancelling out Cherries’ 51st-minute opener which had been credited to Tokelo Rantie.

Grabban told the Daily Echo: “I thought it was inside the box. As Matt Ritchie played the ball over, the right-back ran across me and stopped me getting it.

“I thought I was inside the area because I was at least five yards in when I was on the floor so we were hard done by not to get a penalty. Maybe the referee saw it from a different angle but we were very unfortunate.”

Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson watched several re-runs of the incident on their Soccer Saturday programme and said he also felt Cherries should have been awarded a spot kick.

Asked for his view, Cherries boss Eddie Howe said: “From my first look, I wasn’t even sure it should have been a free kick so I am not going to kick up too much of a fuss. If it was a free kick, I thought it was potentially going to be inside the box but I would need to see it again.”

And Clarets manager Sean Dyche told the Daily Echo: “I didn’t think it was a free kick and I asked the referee. I think there was cross communication between the ref and the linesman. I think they agreed that afterwards and were honest in letting me know that.”

Grabban, who saw his shot from a tight angle saved by Burnley goalkeeper Tom Heaton during the second half, said he felt Cherries had deserved to win.

“I thought it was two points dropped,” added the 25-year-old. “We switched off for their goal but it was still a bit fluky.

“The Championship is still a bit of a learning curve for us and we came away with a point against the team which were second in the table. We were disappointed not to get all three.”

Very sad to say but the incident was at the wrong end of the pitch for a penalty to be awarded!!!!! Referees are under strict instructions to award us a penalty regardless of its merit. Beginning to think that it is a conspiracy, not even the BBC could bring themselves to show the incident.

We achieve what we achieve on merit and not thanks to officials being fair. Up the mighty Cherries

this happened right in front of where I sit - front row (wheelchairs) - family area of the Main Stand. Not only did it look like it shouldn't have been a foul, it definitely happened about a foot outside he area.

Sorry !

It looked like a penalty from where I am in the North Stand, and Merson had the benefit of seeing it several times, in far more detail than either you, me, or the referee could see it. So I'm sorry, I'll happily take his view on it!! UTCIAD

I must admit as much as would hate it to be true the refs do seem to give the smaller teams the short stick. Remember Pughs double fowl at Wigan and got booked for diving, then a pen given for the tiniest of shirt pulls to Wigan. The amount of pens given to saints when they was in league 1. We could go on and on about this the facts are there. I have no complaint if the refs or lino gets it wrong there only human but wrong decisions goes both ways in a match. As said earlier be happy in the knowledge If (when) we make it it will on merit and not thanks to officials. Back to the game I thought Eddie got the tactics spot on cut out Ings lifeline i.e Vokes and Burnley are lost certainly not the best team we have seen this year for that reason I to don't think they will go up.

Sure we need to defend a bit better at one end and be a bit more clinical at the other.

There's probably another 91 football league clubs saying the exact same as well.

We just need to do enough to stay up this season, currently that's exactly what we're doing - maintaining that gap behind us. Looking at how far we've come during this season, from those early hammerings and total inability to cope in away games, to where we are now. A hard team for anyone in the league to beat, including our recent showings against the top two in this league.

Further improvements will come with time.

dc addict says...

From right behind the goal in the North, I thought it was a foul, inside the area and therefore a penalty and so did all those around me. However, the ref thought otherwise so that's that. Ian Harte was obviously telling the ref that the Burnley wall was only about 8 yards away. In almost every case, the referee's 1 yard pace is short. Simple arithmetic suggests that from just outside the area, 10 yards takes you somewhere between the 6 yard line and the penalty spot and that's obviously what Harte was trying to say.
If anyone listened to the radio yesterday evening they would have heard the whingeing whining Liverpool supporters complaining about the decision on the 2nd penalty at Arsenal. They seem to have forgotten the blatant shirt pulling by their left back against us in the previous round. ( How did the linesman miss that??) Referees make mistakes in every game. It happens. Little old Bournemouth had to get over it and so should every team including Liverpool.

lymicherry says...

This is a somewhat academic discussion as (a) it won't change anything, and (b) every team gets its fair share of soft penalties and we-wuz-robbed denials over the course of a season. Also - and this is an observation, not a criticism - we would probably win more pens if we got more players into the box, more often. That, however, carries the risk of being more vulnerable to the counter attack...

That is all part of our lovely game . So please don't think every team that we play ,have the officials on their books .

From Row M behind the goal in North stand it certainly looked liked foul was just inside the box.
Sky were saying it was a penalty too.
Ref obviously has no idea what 10 yards is.
Linesman to my left took half the game to learn the off side rule.
Burnley not as good as their position in the league says they should be. Should they go up they will get slaughtered in Premiership.
Apart from all that - we should be scoring more goals. Ball in net is object of the game after all.

Nat1234 you do take the biscuit don't you! Of course I do not believe that referees re all against AFCB. The biggest clue is in ' beginning to think' beginning to think and believing is worlds apart.

At least you are not ranting about Rantie for a change. If you felt it necessary to comment about my post because I had a go at you about Rantie that is fair enough however I recommend that you may care to read what others are saying digest it before jumping in feet first!

Of course I believe that Refs are human I made this very point about the AFCB V Leicester game. If they get it wrong there is no disgrace in admitting it and those who observe them should give them an honest report and not just go though the motion.

I haven't seen a replay of the incident but I think it is fair to say we have had quite a few bad referring decisions recently. However, I think it also needs mentioning that the crowd just don't get on the back of the officials enough. I sit in the Main Stand and it is like a morgue most matches. It is becoming more and more apparent that the crowd are just too 'nice' at Bournemouth and whether you like it or not this definitely has a bearing on the officials. A good example is the penalty incident against Liverpool. When I rewatched it on TV I was struck by the lack of noise (both after that incident and during the game). It was a bit better on Saturday but most matches we are outsung by the away support (take Leicester for example). Even a couple of my friends, who aren't cherries supporters, said it was quiet when they saw the Liverpool game on TV.

I don't want to take away from the progress we have made as a club. It's fantastic how we are dong (and I think it will only get better) and it's great to see such large attendences this season. I do think, however, that we need to put more pressure on the referees and really get behind the team. Maybe there are just too many fairweather supporters, I don't know.

Very few people seem to read what others say at least they appear not to have understood what it is being said.

I think we should all take a leaf from Eddie's book when it comes to discussions on refereeing decisions. Yes the defender took out Grabban, yes it could have been in the area, but at the end of the day it wasn't given so move on. It makes a change from managers who whinge about refereeing decisions after the game. Respect to you Eddie!

Very sad to say but the incident was at the wrong end of the pitch for a penalty to be awarded!!!!! Referees are under strict instructions to award us a penalty regardless of its merit. Beginning to think that it is a conspiracy, not even the BBC could bring themselves to show the incident.

We achieve what we achieve on merit and not thanks to officials being fair. Up the mighty Cherries
If you believe in conspiracies , then I feel sorry for you . Referees and linesmen are only human , they make mistakes . Sometimes its in our favour and other times it goes against us . That is all part of our lovely game . So please don't think every team that we play ,have the officials on their books .
wow, I agree with you there Nat.

Bournemouth have not beaten a top 5 team yet - another defeat against Derby in the pipeline.

You should be able to beat top teams on that disgraceful pitch which is a great leveller.

So now we have a new self imposed administrator,saying if you have not watched the game you are not allowed to comment.
I think it is an insult to you who have been supporting our beloved club for so long. Hard to do but just ignore him/her. Very few people seem to read what others say at least they appear not to have understood what it is being said. For example you have stated on numerous occasions that you have supported the team for decades and still they accuse you of all kinds of nonsense
Thanks Nonny,but where do these idiots spring from,i have not only supported them for years but have played over 400 games in local league,and when in the services played with some,then, well known professionals, so think i know a little bit about the game.The fact is the team are not scoring,and this is what the public want to see "GOALS" and less draws especially at home.I have also been a class3 ref,so had to know the rules.Some may disagree,but i still think Eddie is playing a defensive game,not just because of playing one up,but in general,defensive football bores me,and i expect many others.As to bad refs,try doing it,and putting up with all the mouth from players,managers,fan
s,etc same for linesmen,who are nearer the crowd and get more abuse,especially from some who do not even know the rules.and as for putting "pressure on the ref"as one moron has suggested,Olik should not be allowed in the ground,for inciting the crowd.What an example to show.

I WATCHED THE GAME FROM THE TM STAND AND CAN ASSURE THOSE WHO THINK WE WERE HARD DONE BY THAT A PENALTY SHOULD HAVE BEEN AWARDED TO BURNELY FOR HANDBALL IN THE 2ND HALF.

Most of us behind the goal laughed out loud at the foul. BUT once awarded the ref let them off the hook, that free-kick should have been re-taken again and again until they went back ten yards. He should have mixed it with Burnley and started to get out the yellow card. He probably went to school recently and didn't learn feet and inches. When you next see him tell him 10 yards? That's 9.1440 metres! He gave them 4 yards(3.657metres) it was pathetic. We would still have missed though! I am only joking calm down!
However the foul was given the ref counted very small steps and we missed. End of!
I hope that we are all off to DERBY this weekend? That will be a great match they are on a roll and we are learning each week! UP THE CHERRIES!!
