Some players on Nottingham Forest’s bench went crazy in response to Nunez’s game-winning goal, although for much different reasons than Liverpool did.
Many of its employees, including manager Nuno Espirito Santo, stormed onto the pitch at full time to confront referee Paul Tierney about a call that had been made more than two minutes before to a Liverpool goal.

Following the final whistle, Steven Reid, the coach of Forest, was one of the players that was sent out, getting a red card. Evangelos Marinakis, the owner of Nottingham Forest, was also involved.

According to BBC journalist Rob Schofield, “scenes like that are uncommon in the tunnel.”

“We watched Steven Reid becoming agitated as he followed Paul Tierney and [the fourth official] Graham Scott all the way to the referees’ office with Forest owner Evangelos Marinakis.””Respect the players!” was what [Marinakis] was screaming at them. Show the players some courtesy! This occurs each week! Show consideration for the participants!

“At one point, security had to remove Marinakis.”

The decision by the referee to give Liverpool a drop-ball after Ibrahima Konate went down with a head injury caused criticism.

Since Forest was in possession when the whistle blew, they ought to have been given possession by the referee when play resumed.

After the incident, Mark Clattenburg, the team’s referee analyst and a previous referee of the Champions League final, stated: “I’ll be sitting down with the board and the owners to try and explain what’s happened and it’s difficult to do that at the moment.”

“We’ll talk about the best course of action shortly after we speak with the Premier League and the PGMOL.”

All the whining in the world won’t change the fact that a Liverpool free-kick would have been the proper conclusion of the whole affair.

This is because Ryan Yates gave Konate a dangerously high boot, which caused the Frenchman to lose consciousness.

You would think it would be easy to bring up and address any issues, but it appears that mainstream media hasn’t made the decision to do so.

Is there a chance that Jermaine Jenas, a Nottingham Forest supporter, was biassed in his “analysis” of Match of the Day?
