But Graham Potter says such decisions – and those involving offside – require a little thought.

Handball was certainly a big deal this weekend for several Premier League teams

To be clear, Albion didn’t complain about the decision to penalize Neal Maupay very late in their 3-2 loss to Manchester United

Certainly not in the current state of the law, although Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson later said he felt unlucky

Potter said: “We have been playing football since the middle of the 19th century and we are still trying to fulfill a rule of handball in the box.

« To be honest Neal’s is a handball I think the others are slightly different: » I don’t think anyone really wants handball to be given when it is completely harmless and there is no intention to do so. anything and that there is no benefit gained

Newcastle boss Steve Bruce was among the bosses who said it was time to discuss the implementation, although it benefited his side at Spurs

When asked if a rule could be changed once a season was underway, Potter replied, « It’s not something I thought about We had changes last season at mid-season. course due to different circumstances

« I find it strange that we have been playing this game for a very, very long time and yet we are still not sure about the offside rule, the handball rule and other things.

« It’s not that hard to get the game for people to recognize and the sooner the better

« Like anything, you have to adapt and adapt to whatever the new system is »

Albion fans will no doubt remember how Bruno always wanted to keep his hands behind his back when defending in or around his own penalty area

« The way they carry the body in the box is something clear that if the ball goes so easily into your hand without intention, you clearly have to keep your hands out and your arm out of the way. It’s not that easy to do

« We have seen incidents over the weekend where everyone can see that it is nothing deliberate, it is completely harmless and it is strange for a footballer to see

« I think at the moment as a defender you have to keep your arms wide

« If this hits you innocently then it’s hard to do anything unless we start to really be unnatural about how we move in the box.

« Don’t get me wrong, I think everyone in football would agree if it’s deliberate handball, if you stop it with your hands to gain an advantage, then it’s clearly handball

« But we don’t want to be in a situation where people wave things around and clap their hand with no intention at all and the defenders get into unrealistic body positions just to protect themselves from this situation. » »

Potter was keen to talk about his team’s performance when he spoke after United’s game rather than refereeing arguments

But he’s not frustrated to hear others talk more about decisions than football

He said: “We have been talking for a long time about the use of technology as the world of football

“We wanted to introduce technology and we talked about it a lot

“You hear people wanting consistency, but I think if you have human beings making decisions, you won’t get that.

« I would much rather let the guy on the pitch make the calls But it’s here and it’s part of the game
