Dermot Gallagher’s View on West Ham’s Goal Against Bournemouth


Dermot Gallagher, a former Premier League referee, explains his view on the controversial first goal scored by West Ham against Bournemouth. He looks at the proximity of Thilo Kehrer to the ball, the handball by Bournemouth sub Jordan Zemura and the decision of Referee David Coote to award a West Ham goal.

Dermot Gallagher explains why he thinks West Ham’s goal should have stood

Dermot Gallagher gave his opinion on why he thinks West Ham’s disputed goal should have stood during the West Ham-Chelsea match on Sky Sports. Several pundits felt that the decision was a little harsh and felt that the Hammers were unduly penalised for the goal. But Dermot Gallagher thinks it was an error.

‘Kurt Zouma headed in from a corner in the box after a goalmouth scramble. Despite this, the goal was not given, even though it was clearly not deliberate. That’s what made Bournemouth fans so angry. Even Bournemouth caretaker Gary O’Neil got booked for expressing his disgust at the decision.

The first goal should have stood. Then, a VAR decision was made for the second. West Ham defender Jordan Zemura’s arm was brought down by a cross. Said Benrahma scored the penalty in stoppage time.

Thilo Kehrer’s proximity to the ball was the main reason for a penalty not being awarded

West Ham United’s third consecutive defeat was caused by a controversial penalty decision. Thilo Kehrer appeared to dive into a challenge from Danny Welbeck on the line of the penalty area, but the referee didn’t point to the spot despite Kehrer’s proximity to the ball. The goal stood, and both West Ham and Bournemouth were frustrated by the decision.

However, Gallagher said that the video footage shows that Kehrer was close enough to the ball to be in the penalty area. In reality, his boot was at the line of the penalty area, but the referee didn’t have to look at the video display screen to see it.

The winger signed for PS30m in the summer but has struggled to secure a starting position for the Blues. Inconsistency has been a major issue for the former Brentford player. He often indulges on the ball and takes the obvious option. However, his fine display against Anderlecht has highlighted his ability to play the simple game.

Bournemouth sub Jordan Zemura’s hand ball was the main reason for a penalty not being awarded

The Bournemouth sub tracked Diogo Jota’s run into the box, and his outstretched arm made contact with Jota’s cross. However, referee Michael Oliver decided against awarding a penalty and VAR backed his decision. The decision was based on Gabriel’s proximity to the ball, and Gallagher was surprised that the left-back was not penalised for the “unnatural” position his arm was in.

Bournemouth deserved to win and Gary O’Neil has put in a superb run at the club, but the decision to award a penalty was a blow for his side. The game was marred by a number of controversial decisions, with two handballs costing the Cherries. Kurt Zouma’s goal, despite hitting the arm of Thilo Kehrer, stood, but after the match, Bournemouth were unable to compete due to injuries. Substitute Dominic Solanke was taken off before the second half and had to leave the field due to an ankle injury. Both players were on the bench as a result, with a number of players not fully fit.

According to the Premier League, a referee must show a yellow card after every five fouls. This is one of the strictest leagues in Europe, second only to La Liga. However, after the red card was shown to Hogg, the penalty was not awarded to Cardiff, who were awarded a free kick. In fact, Gallagher explained why Cardiff were not awarded a penalty after the decision.

Referee David Coote’s decision to award a spot-kick to West Ham

The goal by David Moyes’ West Ham was controversial and the referee’s decision to award a spot kick was questioned by a number of commentators, including Jamie Carragher and Sean Dyche. The West Ham manager insisted he had not seen the incident again, while Alan Shearer tweeted: “Handball law is all over the place.” Referee David Coote told Sky Sports that the handball was unavoidable.

The decision was harsh as it cost West Ham a penalty. Jordan Zemura was harshly penalised for handball and West Ham went on to claim their fifth successive home win. The result also saw the Hammers move up to 10th position with 14 points from eight Premier League games.

West Ham’s performance in the past few weeks has not been good and the team has missed penalties in the past. Referee David Coote’d decision to award a spot-kick was controversial and caused a lot of controversy. Bournemouth fans were particularly unhappy with the decision.
