There's one touch on the ball, he kicks his own foot which accounts for any second noise, the change of angle and the confusion.
The Quest coverage and OneJobOnTeesside footage shows nothing different, OneJob also cannot see a second touch.
I haven’t seen the one job footage.
Have you watched the post match analysis on quest?
Yes, it shows exactly the same footage, slowed down even further, and I still cannot see the second touch.
The fact that the pundits congratulate the ref is irrelevant, we see pundits supporting wrong decisions all the time.
They briefly watch a few minutes of footage, and then make a quick comment, they've got 36 matches to discuss.
I doubt they forensically examined it like many of our fans have tried to do.
I'm just watching the quest footage now. I don't think there's two clear noises on this either. Every kick of the ball just sounds sort of odd and echoey cause of the empty ground imo.
Having said that. I'm not saying I'm certain it's one touch either. Think it's very difficult to tell.
Watched it several times and paused it and I can't see a second touch. The ball was well clear of his standing leg when he slipped and heading into the back of the net.Have you seen this angle on the sky sports highlights?

How the ref decides that's a double touch, I'll never know?
It is only near sight which routinely deteriorates from age 40. Good distance or intermediate vision can last a lifetime.And dozens can see it.
Again ask yourself:
Is it more likely that dozens of people are lying that they can see it?
Or that dozens of people just can’t see it?
Bearing in mind that the average age of the the site is probably 50+ and therefore most of the users eyesight will have diminished over the years.
It is only near sight which routinely deteriorates from age 40. Good distance or intermediate vision can last a lifetime.
I would also say that it seems as most in the two-touch camp are making that decision based on the trajectory of the ball as opposed to actually seeing the second touch. Probably what the ref also did.
Me? No idea.
In hindsight, I realise I may be wrong as although my eyesight is obviously failing me, I have Batfink-like hearing.
I can actually hear three touches, but I believe the third one cancels out the second one, so we are left with the FACT that the ball was only touched once.
Checkmate and UTB, you lovable troll, you x
Just watched it on Quest - when you see it from behind I think it looks like a double touch but how the ref who is >10 yards away can see it & be a 100% certain is beyond me.From that Sky Sports clip whilst watching on my laptop I can't see a two touches. Perhaps on a higher definition screen it would be more visible.
I've not seen it from behind so can't comment on that.
It's noticeable that the referee decides straight away so he clearly is sure and also a Norwich player appeals straight away.
Can I just say that at the age of 58 whilst wearing glasses my eyesight is 20/20.
