Episode 1865: Careless Hands, Crusty Haunches
It was a weekend that reminded you of what we treasure about the game of football – the chance for everybody to absolutely lose their minds over something that really does not matter at all.
We talk about why almost all the outrage over “the new handball rule” misses the point.
"It is a total nonsense… we have to get together as managers and say this must stop."
Steve Bruce has reacted to the penalty, awarded for handball, that saw his side snatch a draw at Tottenham.
