However much pleasure I take in any Liverpool loss (unless they're playing Arsenal, Chelsea and now Manchester City), the goal that resulted in their defeat yesterday simply should not have been allowed to stand. Seriously, a beach ball is not a normal occurrence in a game of football, and the fact that the goal was headed straight for the keeper until it deflected off the beach ball should have been taken into consideration.
I really want to know what happened to the fan who threw the beach ball on, as does Sky Sports. I read that it was thrown on by a kid sitting in the away end (i.e. so it was thrown on by a Liverpool fan), and, man, knowing football fans, his dad is lucky to have made it out of the Stadium of Light alive!
