There has been so much talk about how apparently Juve get all calls their way blabla I thought it might be interesting to examine our "luck" throughout a season.. If you recall any incidents by all means add to the list, however I'm specifically interested in events to decide the match in question.

The premises for the count are as follows.

+ The fortune count gives 1 for a match with significant influence of "luck", 0 is neutral, -1 the opposite.

+ The match decider field gives the # of points in favor or opposite as a result of irregularities.

+ Penalty given wrongly only counts as match decider if it is in fact decisive (ie. penalty for 1-0 not match decisive when result is 2-0)

Examples..

A - Lazio 5-0

We get 5 non existent penalties to win 5-0 and get 3 points as a result of "mistakes" by the ref.

Fortune count: 1 (positive influence in the match, does not have to be decisive for the match outcome, just speculation of positive influence)

Match deciders: +2 pts (a win instead of a draw)

Net fortune: 0

No irregularities recorded.

Net fortune: -1

Match deciders: -2 pts

Van Hooijdonk given 3 chances to finally score from a free kick around 75'.

Net fortune: 1

Match deciders: 0

Del Piero gets dubious penalty to score the first goal, IMO no penalty. Second goal scored in regular fashion, ie. penalty non decisive.

Net fortune: 1

Match deciders: 0

Speculation of a Del Piero handball on the 2nd goal, scored in the 95' minute. He jumps with Ferrari and they both handball, then he pulls his hand back and guides the ball into his running path. Some say it's deliberate, some say it isn't. I'm not convinced one way or another.

Net fortune: 1

Match deciders: 0

Shearer's goal for 1-1 cancelled due to Dyer's offside, according to the player-who-interferes-with-play rule. Clearly Dyer had nothing to do with the play so the goal might as well have been given.
