The Quest coverage put to bed any doubt about the disallowed Wycombe goal, should have carded that player for being so sneaky! Fair play to the ref, he was standing in exactly the right place to see it.
I reckon that is something they practice.
The bloke who took the corner is known for scoring direct from them, so it makes sense to stop the only player who can prevent a goal of that sort.
I bet they get away with it 9 times out of 10. All eyes on the ball, and the outfield players tussling, it's easy to miss a little tug on the goalie.
Just the sort of thing their scummy manager would have done as a player.

I agree. The more I thought about it, it just didn't seem to be the sort of thing someone would do off the cuff. I hope other refs were watching.
