Rafa on whether there was a clear hand in Dubravka's face: “Yes, and maybe a foul on Almiron before that.
“It was also 94 minutes (after four mins of stoppage time).
“You can say many things but like the first game we can’t change that.”
I will start by saying I like dubravka, it’s falls into I have seen them given . I think rather than weak goalkeeping which has been said. It’s more of a timing issue, by that I mean to jump a step earlier, he avoids bolys contact on the way up.
Rafa on Dubravka and Lascelles onfield row, any problems? Benitez said: "No. The disappointment is there for everyone. We care. Martin was talking about more protection and Jamaal maybe saying Martin could deal with the cross in another way. It doesn't change anything." #nufc
Thoughts after that one
1. #WWFC and #NUFC fans both claim to have the best keepers outside the top 6 but they were both shite tonight
2. The referee was a wanker to both teams
3. Two mistakes that have cost us vital points by Dubravka
4. Wolves play some amazing football
Felt as if we’ve been robbed tonight, blatant foul on dubravka for the goal also the whistle just have been blown way before they got down that far anyway. Would have took a point before the game but still feel hard done by. Another solid performance by @seanlongstaff97 👌👏⚫️⚪️
I heard Dubravka was a Sunderland fan growing up. 😜On a serious note Newcastle with the near perfect away performance. Keeper got to be stronger. Two away games on the trot he’s cost his team. Fair play to the @Wolves lads to keep going right till end. Great entertainment #mnf
Nije kao Dubravka Filipovski, može se jasno razumeti šta izgovara.
"Čast mu je što može da govori ispred svih onih koji protestuju"
To što ga nema na bini, što ne uzima mikrofon i nije u prvim redovima dok se šeta... je predstava za one koji vole da se samozavaravaju.
* Sunderland fan laughs at Dubravka mistake
FACT - a total of 17 errors from goalkeepers cost Sunderland a goal and/or points last season. It cost them 31 points in total - 8 points would’ve kept them up.
Get bored of ‘experts’ saying “the keeper’s got to do better” and “he should just punch it clear”.
It’s a foul.
Dubravka catches that cleanly if he isn’t fouled and Newcastle win. Needs to be more ex keepers in the studios for balanced argument.
@lee_ryder Boly should have been sent off at SJP for the elbow and then he chokes Dubravka for the goal last night..how come #nufc never get big decisions anymore? Feel like the world and his wife are against us
@AndreasAsB@TAN_Joakim@MiikeSkin@arnelysne 1-1 scoring så skal Newcastle hvertfall ha ett frispark i forkant. Sit med Dubravka er ikke noe poeng å diskutere. Frispark all day long. Med VAR kunne vi fort hatt 6p og ikke 1p etter Wolves kampene.
@JacquiOatley Rafa paid £4m for Dubravka the weakest GK in the PL. The mags never complained about Andy Carroll being physical with GK's did they? Rumours on Sunderland are NUFC will sign Gemma Collins as a replacement GK in the summer. FTM
@siblood I don't.
Look at Boly. He jumps backwards and not into Dubravka. Dubravka is under the ball and not on it and leaps back into Boly.
Boly sticks his arms out but he doesn't use them to elevate himself off of the keeper.
Rafael Benitez questioned the stoppage-time challenge on goalkeeper Martin Dubravka that resulted in Wolves salvaging a 1-1 draw against Newcastle (Source: BBCSport).

@delfender If you look at Dubravka's motion at the point of Boly's hands being placed on his shoulders, it prevents any further elevation. The ball, at that point wasn't even in the picture. Clearly impeded his ability to reach the ball, so foul all day for me.
On Dubravka - you can argue either way that it was or wasn’t a foul, BUT what people aren’t taking into consideration is that Dubravka had jumped before Boly. Once you jump, it’s very difficult to then get stronger and especially if you have someone with hands around neck #nufc
For me, it was a foul on Dubravka but also think that he should’ve punched it. The two are not mutually exclusive. If he punches it we have 3 points and there is no debate.
So in summary, the ref and Dubravka are to blame..
@blackyboyccb1 Haha the curse of MNF mate only thing on telly.
Daft thing was you were comfortable if a) king Rafa didn't piss about bringing Manquillo on or b) dubravka didn't have arms like Tyrion Lannister.
And as if you're not top SAFC supporter watching all the games in the Nelson 🍻🍻
@hjorvarhaflida@JonJKarlsson Sammála Hjörvari. Boly stekkur upp með hendurnar uppi en það er ekki ólöglegt. Mér finnst meira eins og hann leggi hendurnar einhvernvegin á hálsinn á Dubravka en notar ekkert afl, ýtir honum ekki niður eða hindrar, hendurnar á Dubravka eru fríar. Hann á bara að vera sterkari!
🤬 from result tonight, think we played so well. But I do not believe it was a foul on Dubravka in all honesty, would of been soft if the same happened to Rui Patricio. Positives are Longstaff played great and Almiron looked 🔥when he came on. Plus Rondon got good service #NUFC
@NUFC_Index His hands are clearly round his neck pulling him down, causing the initial position to catch to move, every angle shows the same, if his hands werent round his neck, Dubravka would have saved and points deserved
