[Unlike many others, I'm fairly indifferent to what happens to Man U, unless they're playing us.] It was a very strict interpretation of the supposedly approved rule about 'making yourself bigger' by use of arms, but I suppose he did that. Just about.
Going forward, I don't think defenders should have to tuck in their arms behind their back: that's just silly. But where does using your arms for balance in a 'normal' pose end and where does being a bit careless as to how far your arms stick out begin? Players won't help themselves because they always seek to bend the rules to breaking point on any issue - ergo onlookers assume they are doing it 'accidentally on purpose' even when they maybe weren't.
Meh. It wasn't Pontus, so I don't care.

Indeed. Just waiting for the resurgence of Lokomotiv Dresden and Traktor Stalingrad and my childhood memories would be happily complete.
