david raya hilariously trolled for diving after ball hit back of net in fulham goal that cost brentford 170m

FANS have taken to social media to mock poor Brentford goalkeeper David Raya after he was caught out by Joe Bryan’s free-kick from range in the Championship play-off final.

The Spaniard has been excellent for the Bees this season, but endured a moment to forget as he saw the ball fly past him at the near post.

Anticipating a cross into the box from Bryan, Raya positioned himself ready to come and claim a delivery.

But to his horror, the ball instead was sent towards goal, leading him to scramble back towards his near post in order to try and recover the situation.

But having been caught out, the Spaniard bizarrely dived beyond his post AFTER the ball had already gone in.

The incident happened in the 105th minute with the sides having been approaching half-time of extra-time still locked at 0-0.

Bryan went on to score again, and a late Henrik Dalsgaard consolation wasn’t enough as the Bees surrendered promotion to their local rivals.

And as if that wasn’t bad enough Raya, 24, has been trolled on social media following his moment to forget.

One wrote: “David Raya’s positioning was like your mate on clubs who usually plays up front but fancies himself between the sticks for a game.”

While another likened it to a different computer game: “That David Raya dive is the most Football Manager Match Engine thing I’ve ever seen happen in a real-life football match.”

A third joyful rival fan wrote: “Bottleford at it again, you love to see it”.

While another joked: “I suppose David Raya does sound like David de Gea!”

A West Ham compared Raya to the Hammers’ calamity keeper from earlier this season: “Roberto signed for Brentford?”

The Championship play-off final, dubbed the “richest game in football”, is said to be worth around £170million to the winner.

But while club chiefs will be hurt in the pocket, fans will be most devastated by having lost out on a golden opportunity to make their Premier League debut.

And having done so at the hands of nearby Fulham will rankle even more.

Chelsea do NOT have Tariq Lamptey buy-back clause as part of £4m transfer after another stunning display at Newcastle

chelsea do not have tariq lamptey buy back clause as part of 4m transfer after another stunning display at newcastle scaled

CHELSEA do not have the option to buy back youngster Tariq Lamptey – leaving Blues fans devastated.

Frank Lampard sold the 19-year-old to the Brighton for £4million in January as he approached the final six months of his contract.

He only featured three times for Chelsea and a further eight for the Seagulls last season.

But the right-back has come of age in the early weeks of the season, assisting Leandro Trossard’s goal against Chelsea while troubling the visitors’ defence throughout with his blistering pace.

And, on Sunday, Lamptey won a penalty against Newcastle in another terrific display from the teenager.



It left supporters flooding social media questioning whether Chelsea had the option to bring Lamptey back to the club in the future.

One said: “Are we going to buy Lamptey back in the future for a fortune after letting him go?”

Another said: “How long until Chelsea try to buy Tariq Lamptey back?”

A third added: “Lamptey was amazing tonight. Sadly for him Chelsea have Reece James but no doubt in my mind Lamptey will do great things.”

But Brighton do not need to worry about Chelsea returning for his signature in the future.

Lampard wanted the player to stay at Stamford Bridge but knew game time would be limited behind Cesar Azpilicueta and Reece James in the pecking order.

Lamptey wanted first-team football and Chelsea were not willing to stand in the way of his development.

The England Under-21 international, being scouted by Ghana, penned a contract at Brighton until the summer of 2023 after joining the Chelsea academy at the age of eight.

la lakers star anthony davis three point buzzer beater hands lebron james and co victory

Anthony Davis landed a three-pointer on the buzzer to lift the Los Angeles Lakers to a thrilling 105-103 win and a 2-0 Western Conference final series lead over the Denver Nuggets on Sunday.

Davis’s channeled the inner spirit of former Lakers star Kobe Bryant, who seven regular-season buzzer-beaters are tied for the most ever.

The Lakers were wearing special ‘mamba’ black tribute jerseys following Bryant’s tragic death in a helicopter crash in January, but his memory appeared to inspire his former side to a dramatic victory.

Davis – who confirmed that he yelled ‘Kobe!’ after drilling the game-winning shot – ended with 31 points, scoring his team’s last 10 in contributing a 22-point second half as the Lakers defied yet another Denver comeback.

LeBron James had 26 points and 11 rebounds for the Lakers, while Danny Green had 11 points.  

The Nuggets trailed by as many as 16 points before Nikola Jokic took control by scoring 11 straight Denver points, including a basket that put his side up 103-102 with 20 seconds left.

In a frantic finish, LA’s Alex Caruso missed a three-pointer, before a shot from Green was blocked out of bounds with 2.1 seconds left.

Rajon Rondo then found Davis near the sideline, and the All-Star forward found the basket from long-range.

‘Special moment for a special player. Happy to be a part of it,’ said James.

Jokic had 30 points and nine assists for the Nuggets while Jamal Murray had 25 points.

Game three is on Tuesday night.
