VIDEO: Should Gael Clichy Have Been Penalised For Handball In Manchester United-Arsenal?

Manchester United 1-0 Arsenal was a game of few noteworthy incidents, but Wayne Rooney's shocking penalty miss will take up many of the headlines, with the England striker blazing high and wide when facing Premier League debutant Wojciech Szczesny. The English international had a chance to make it 2-0 and put the game beyond doubt.

The story is too old to be commented.

Well he did have contact with the ball with his hand in the area, so yeah I guess that is punishable. However, it was in no way intentional so it was up to the ref to decide.

Yea, you the ref had a hard time on this one- after all I think its a fair penalty- its his intention to stop the ball by sliding- thats why he keeps his hands on the ground (he didnt fall or anything). So I think its a penalty.-
