ANOTHER weekend and another dreadful penalty decision goes against Swansea City.After Kevin Friend's error at Stamford Bridge, Anthony Taylor managed to follow it up with another blunder against Burnley.They were both shocking decisions and, as I have said before, we get no explanation of why the penalty was given and there appears to be no punishment or acknowledgement of the mistake.If a player were to make such a mistake, he would be suspended or dropped, but we hardly ever seem to have it...
