Hi Kerry, Its another day and here we are looking at another dubious hit to the head. In this case Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky elbowed Saku Koivu in the head about a second after he dished off the puck to a teammate, knocking him unconscious.Ref Watch is back to debate another batch of controversial decisions from the weekends football fixtures. Weve got a bumper edition this week as former top-flight referee Dermot Gallagher joined Rob Wotton in the Sky Sports News HQ studio to go through a number of contentious calls, with the Capital One Cup final the main topic of conversation.From missed penalty decisions and debatable handballs to goal celebration punishments, we have picked out a number of incidents which were reviewed during Mondays Ref Watch. MATCH: Liverpool v Manchester City, Capital One Cup finalINCIDENT: Penalty not awarded to City after a clash between Alberto Moreno and Sergio Aguero. Dermot Gallagher says that Sergio Aguero should have had a penalty SCENARIO: With the final in the balance at 1-0, another City goal could have sealed victory, and Manuel Pellegrini and his bench were incredulous as referee Michael Oliver waved away penalty appeals that would have given them the ideal opportunity to get that crucial second. Moreno clearly left his leg hanging as Aguero darted inside, the only issue was whether there was enough contact for the Liverpool full-back to be penalised for the foul.GALLAGHERS VIEW: Wrong decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: This was very reminiscent of Nacho Monreals challenge on Jamie Vardy two weeks ago. Moreno leaves his leg out, Aguero goes over it. I have no idea what Moreno is doing there, but for whatever reason Michael didnt think it was a penalty. I thought it was a penalty.MATCH: Liverpool v Manchester City, Capital One Cup finalINCIDENT: Philippe Coutinhos goal celebration after Liverpools equaliser. Gallagher reviews whether Philippe Coutinho should have been shown a red card SCENARIO: With Liverpools first shot on target in the 83rd minute, Coutinho grabbed a dramatic equaliser, sending Liverpool fans into raptures. Caught up in the moment, the Brazilian took his shirt off in celebration, and then jumped into his adoring fans. He was booked, but should he have received a yellow card for both incidents?GALLAGHERS VIEW: Correct decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: His offence is over-celebrating. That comes with the taking off of the jersey and going into the fans. Its all the same process - if he did one thing and didnt do the other hed still only be booked. It is an absolute nightmare for referees when someone does it on a yellow card - you dont want to do it and get called a killjoy.MATCH: Liverpool v Manchester City, Capital One Cup finalINCIDENT: Adam Lallana and Yaya Toure are both booked after a confrontation late in the game. Adam Lallana and Yaya Toure had a confrontation at Wembley SCENARIO: As players tired in extra time, the match boiled over as Lallana reacted angrily to a tackle from Toure. Both were cautioned as a result by Oliver, but should Lallana have received further punishment for his retaliation?GALLAGHERS VIEW: Correct decisionGALLAGHER SAYS: I thought he did really well here, and I think every football fan will applaud the referee. If you are going to send somebody off for violent conduct it has got to be malicious and violent. I dont think any of this is violent. Kompany comes in very quickly to diffuse the situation. It sent out a message of deterrent, which is the point.MATCH: Liverpool v Manchester City, Capital One Cup finalINCIDENT: Yaya Toure, who had already been booked, takes his shirt off after netting winning penalty. Gallagher analyses whether Yaya Toure could have seen red SCENARIO: After scoring the winning penalty, Toure wheeled away with his shirt over his head. The law of the land indicates taking your shirt off is an automatic yellow card, which would have been Toures second. No action was taken. Should he have gone?GALLAGHERS VIEW: Correct decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: Coutinhos was in the game, Toures wasnt. This is an extension to the game, the match finished after extra time. Once that penalty goes in the game is over, he could then say he is taking his shirt off to give it to another player. The law is there for the betterment of the game. If you start to use the laws ridiculously, people would not buy into that.MATCH: Liverpool v Manchester City, Capital One Cup finalINCIDENT: Willy Caballero saves three penalties but appears to be off his line when the spot-kicks are taken. An emotional Willy Caballero was the hero for Manchester City SCENARIO: When a penalty is taken, the goalkeeper is told to stay on his line, or risk having the spot-kick retaken, and referee Oliver set out the rules in a pre-shoot-out talk with both Caballero and Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet. Danny Welbeck Arsenal Jersey. . However, Caballero seemed to be off his line when denying Liverpool, with the match-winning third save from Lallana especially glaring.GALLAGHERS VIEW: Correct decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: In real terms the goalkeeper has to be on the line, but you cannot have zero tolerance, it is impossible. What referees look for is that first movement, which they have to accept. Then, if there is a second and third movement that narrows that angle, then we have a problem.MATCH: Leicester v Norwich, SaturdayINCIDENT: Wes Morgan blocks a Cameron Jerome a shot with his arm. Was Wes Morgans handball deliberate? SCENARIO: With Saturdays Premier League encounter finely poised, Jerome curls an effort at goal, which Morgan gets in the way of, but the ball appears to hit his arm. Nothing was given. Was it deliberate?GALLAGHERS VIEW: Correct decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: It cant be given. It is not deliberate, hes turned away and it has hit him. We talked about the Raheem Sterling one against Tottenham and we all agreed it wasnt handball. You respect the referees for correcting the decision.MATCH: Stoke v Aston Villa, SaturdayINCIDENT: Villa get back in the game with a controversial goal. Did Rudy Gestede control the ball with his hand? SCENARIO: Villa were doing their utmost to find a way back into the game, and get on the scoresheet through Leandro Bacuna. However, Villa striker Rudy Gestede appeared to control the ball with his arm when setting Bacuna up for the strike.GALLAGHERS VIEW: Correct decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: If you watch, the ball fires off his foot [and onto his arm]. It is not like the Jack Rodwell incident [at West Ham], as he cannot do anything about it. This is a referees worst nightmare. It is not possible for the referee to give handball for that, not within the directives of the law. Rodwell has his arm out, this one flies off his foot. Every week we are talking about handball. We need to sit down and discuss exactly what is what.MATCH: Southampton v Chelsea, SaturdayINCIDENT: Charlie Austin goes down appealing for penalty. This Gary Cahill incident caused controversy SCENARIO: As new Saints striker Austin broke clear, Gary Cahill lunged in to try and win the ball. Saints fans and players alike claimed a penalty for a foul and/or handball as Cahill landed on the ball. Was the Blues defender fortunate to get away with it?GALLAGHERS VIEW: Correct decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: It is touch and go whether it is a foul, but in terms of handball, I dont think it is. He has fell on it as he slides in. Cahill has made no attempt to deliberately handle the ball. Chelsea would be bitterly upset if a penalty was given for that.MATCH: Manchester United v Arsenal, SundayINCIDENT: Aaron Ramsey is only cautioned for retaliating in an incident with Ander Herrera. Aaron Ramsey and Ander Herrera clashed at Old Trafford SCENARIO: As frustrations started to boil over, Ramsey did not like United midfielder Herrera trying to antagonise him, and pushed out at the Spaniard. Should the Welshman have been sent off for his actions?GALLAGHERS VIEW: Correct decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: If you are going to send someone off for violent conduct, it has to be violent, there has to be malice. This is just a case of two players clashing quickly and a yellow card is sufficient for both adopting an aggressive attitude.MATCH: Fulham v Middlesbrough, SaturdayINCIDENT: Richard Stearman is given a straight red card for preventing a goalscoring opportunity. Gallagher admits that the red card given to Richard Stearman was incorrect SCENARIO: Fulham defender Stearman stumbles as he loses control of the ball, and as he falls pulls down Jordan Rhodes with him. Referee Charles Breakspear apparently adjudged Stearman to be preventing a clear goalscoring opportunity, despite the fact it was in the Middlesbrough half. Harsh decision?GALLAGHERS VIEW: Wrong decision.GALLAGHER SAYS: I will tell you, I really, really rate this referee. He is one of the best in the Football League. Even he will see that this is not correct. Hes 65 yards from goal, and there is no doubt in my mind that that player with the ball is going to get caught.  Also See: Merson: Wengers job on line Parlour: No leaders Premier League build-up Cup final talking points ' ' '
