No doubt a fair few of you will have seen this by now as we’re a few days late on the uptake, but this is for the benefit of those who haven’t had their lives graced by Eunan O’Kane’s catastrophic balls-up at the weekend.

Poor old Bournemouth defender O’Kane gave away the daftest penalty we’ve seen in a long while by picking up the ball in his own area after mistakenly assuming that his teammate being chopped down on the edge of the box would constitute a free-kick and throwing the time-old footballing adage of “always playing to the whistle” clean out of the window…

We remember Alfe Inge-Haaland doing the exact same thing for Forest a good few years ago. You’ve got to feel for the lad. Every fibre of his being was telling him that was a foul (which it most definitely was) and he acted on instinct.

Shame that he ended up looking like a complete and utter berk as a result!
