Listen to Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe give his view on the two penalty decisions in the second half of his side's 1-1 draw against Watford.

Howe felt the first penalty decision was a "stonewall" spot-kick and believes Watford were lucky not to have a second player sent off for the foul which led to the second penalty.

There was also some animosity between the two benches during the game which Howe described after the match as "messy".

The 1st pen is debateable. Think there was a tug on the forward. Second def not a penalty. Hall got the ball and you can tell (as 3CR pointed out on the commentry) by the trajectory of the ball that he made contact.

Think a point was a fair result. Not aware that we created a lot of chances. I just dont think there is an understanding between Deeney and Fabbrinni and I cant see it developing. Just hope that with Abdi and Anya getting fit there will be more opportunities for the strikers.

Whats happened to Reece Brown? Dont think hes injured but not even making the bench.

Man of thre match has to be the ref. Sending the wrong guy off! Second best was Manu for his three saves after the penalty he saved the penalty and then saves afterwards.

The Angella sending off is one of the most bizarre things I've ever seen on a football pitch. For anyone who hasn't seen it he was about 5 yards from the incident, you've got to see it to believe it.

The second penalty was a clear dive, but if the referee gives it how was that not a clear goal scoring opportunity?

Funny that, the linesman signalled a pull and that's exactly what this picture shows ... and as I thought at the time, it was Grabban was doing the fouling.
The second was even more of a travesty ... Fitz Hall challenged cleanly and Pugh threw himself down once the ball had gone ... Quite how Almunia got booked is a total mystery?

Five penalties against and none for in just 3 games with this ref ... questions really need to be raised!

... I agree he the decisions were hopeless but I can't find any record that he has sent any players off?

If the first one was a penalty it should have been a yellow card as the first offence was a shirt pull and wasnt the last man . The second was a dive and Pugh should apply to the diving show on tv as he will have a good chance.

If Mr Howe is so sure that the first penalty can he explains why he thinks it was a foul and the linesman signalled a pull? The media have been unable to work out whether the mirage the linesman saw was Ekstrand or Hall and for the second penalty they are also divided between Hall and Almunia being the culprit. The officials have guessed and guessed wrongly twice.

This was Mr Boyeson's 8th Watford match in 12 years as a referee and the first red card. His previous 2 Watford games were Blackburn away last season (lost 1-0, no penalties but the Sky report refers to him turning down Blackburn appeals for a penalty) and Southampton away the previous season (lost 4-0 including 2 penalties), no penalties for Watford in any of those games, so Bringe's stats are almost right. Yesterday's draw brings to an end a run of 4 straight defeats in Watford matches he has officiated.

Blackburn away last season? There was a very soft penalty given for a Hoban handball. Kazim-Richards took the resulting penalty and smashed it off the bar from what I recall.
