Following Ashkan Dejagah's opening goal, the Magpies had their claims for a late penalty turned down by referee Howard Webb, after Tim Krul's shot appeared to hit the arm of Johnny Heitinga.

Carver believes they were denied a clear penalty and was disappointed to leave Craven Cottage empty-handed.

"I've just had a look at it - and it hits his arm," he told Sky Sports.

"There's no pace on the ball so it's not like it has happened quickly.

"I've spoken to Howard and he says he was in a difficult position to see it so he hasn't given it. We have to accept it."

Carver, who was standing in for the suspended Alan Pardew, believes that Webb missed a foul on striker Luuk De Jong moments before Dejagah's strike.

"I'm a little bit disappointed with the decision about the challenge on Luuk De Jong that led to their goal," he said.

"Again, it's something I've just looked at and he goes straight into the back of him - you wouldn't get away with that on a Sunday morning."

The Magpies' assistant admitted that his side defended poorly for Fulham's goal, believing Krul could have "possibly" saved it.

"What we should have done is defend a little bit better," he said.

"He comes inside on his right foot and we shouldn't open up the goal - he should go on the outside.

"We warned Mapou (Yanga-Mbiwa) how to deal with it, and we didn't deal with it."

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
