Everton eventually lost 2-1 against Villarreal at El Madrigal and 4-2 on aggregate, as Collina disallowed a late Duncan Ferguson header that would have sent the tie to extra-time.

The disallowed goal of Ukraine roundabout the hour mark is one of great contention, considering there were other factors leading up to the ball crossing the goal line such as an uncalled offside.

Desi Gunner at related • 1 view

There have been far too many games in which at least one major decision has gone against Arsenal. And this isn't a new phenomenon linked only to this season. The Gunners have also been lucky with some marginal calls and it's not all one way traffic but based on my recollections the ‘against' tally is like a cricket score while the ‘for' list is an endangered species on the verge of extinction.
