    Watford will appeal, but I don't how they can get round to solving it.

    The ball did cross the line... it just wasn't between the goal posts!

    It must go down in history as one of the worst decisions in football history. *Up there with not seeing Maradona's hand of god.

    I will watch on the championship tomorrow morning, I should be able to see what actually happened. Nevertheless, it sounds like an awful decision, maybe they would of got the goal from the corner, the linesman was saving Watford's embarrassment.

    The ball went 3 yards past the keepers left hand post and a goal was given?

    Wouldnt the ref be even the slightest bit suspicious when the fans didnt cheer the "goal" and proberbly made the "ohhh" sound you do when you nearly score?

    This and the fact none of the players celebrated.

    Well ive just seen it, I have no idea how they came to the conclusion it was a goal. Its not even on record who scored it.

    The keeper, scott loach is from my town and I was speaking to him about it last night, he said he didn't have a clue what had happened and he said that reading should have let watford score, probably a fair shout.

    It's bizarely gone down on records as an own goal, by the defender who kicked it out for a corner

    That is the single worst refereeing decision in the history of football, bar none.

    I 'scored' one like this once.

    I had a shot from about 25 yards that went just wide, but there was a chair (used for putting the net up) at the side of the post which the ball hit. The ricochet from the chair caused the ball to change direction and move towards the goal (while actually being out of play as the shot went wide). The ball managed to work its way under the net and into what was the goal.

    The referee subsequently gave a goal which had we been drawing 0-0 or losing 1-0, we'd have claimed but since it was a cup game that we were winning about 7-0 anyway, we sportingly chose not to accept the decision and I think we won about 12-1 in the end anyway with every single outfield player getting a goal.

    I hate referees.

    Our one today threatened to send me off because I called a player on the opposition a ****.

    Given that he may have broken something in my jaw, I felt it was justified.

    I still don't know that goal was scored, and what was the linesman on which made him give it.

    I could maybe understand it slightly more if the linesman was stood on the far side of the pitch, but the CORNER was conceded on his side of the goal.

    It's a shame that nothing can be done about it, as the rest of the game could have taken a different direction because of the goal.

    Talk to me, Goose.

    does anyone remember when mark hughes (i think) scored for southampton at the dell, but it hit the advertising boards and came back out and no-one celebrated and they just got on with the match?

    that is just shocking. although with the standard of refereeing at forest games this season i'm not surprised by this howler. i thought a referee had to be qualified to be a matchday official?,,, looks like they are dragging any old trash off the street and giving them the whistle.

    That really is quite astonishing!

    Everything about it should shriek to the referee 'no goal'...the absence of players/fans celebrating for a major starter...

    Mind you...the standard of refereeing in this division is not exactly outstanding, now is it...

    By "relegation battle", do you mean 7th, 12th or 14th?

    That makes it twice as bad!

    Player's reactions are usually a dead give away. I can't understand how he think it's gone in.

    I know a lad who is a Watford fan and he was there, said Reading started celebrating the goal! Which is terrible. They really should have given them a goal back.
