Was it a foul or handball that was the big question after yet another late late goal cost us dearly.

The only question is why is Stephens waving his right arm in the air when a cross comes in? No arm in the air, no penalty.

Deff FOWL.

I could not understand why Jack STEPHENS in yesterday's game at Burnley - had his arm so high when going up to head the ball with Crouch directly behind him? the answer came when GOS Chris Kamara, showed the camera angle ( not shown on MOTD ) showing Crouch grabbing a handful of the back of Stephens shirt STOPPING HIM JUMPING - therefore Jack STEPHENS was TRYING to head the ball with Crouch behind pulling his shirt downwards .......... this was not seen by any of the officials as "too many bodies were around the ball " - all ref could see was Crouch heading the ball against Jack STEPHENS arm. If you look at both just after the incident - Crouch looks guilty ............. and Jack STEPHENS looks angry!

Conclusions - Jack STEPHENS realizes he has just been shafted by an old pro who has just won a point for his new team - and prevented Saints from gaining all 3!

Prooving my point - look at the " photo still " at 8.26 on this video ..... you see Crouches right hand grabbing Jacks shirt preventing him from jumping - putting him off balence - hence arm in the air. SO the old pro who has just won a point for his new team - and prevented Saints from gaining all 3!

Surely people have now seen how Crouch fouled Stephens with that right-hand shirt pull so I am disappointed to see so many blaming Stephens, very unfair.

Lots of discussion this week on football forums, including here, on two subjects – the petition to lobby parliament to allow limited numbers of supporters back into football grounds, and of course the return of that old chestnut from Man City Chief Executive Ferran Soriano, introducing Premier League ‘B’ teams into the EFL. First off, I don’t mind admitting I’ve signed the petition ( https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/552036 ), as have 192,779 others at the time of writing, though I don’t actually think it’ll make any difference. I can completely understand why some do not think this is a good idea, as second-wave spikes of coronavirus infection pop up all over the country (mainly because – let’s face it – some people are dicks and can’t be trusted to sit the right way on a toilet). But to me, the two go hand in hand (not dicks and toilets) – whilst football clubs throughout the country struggle financially without spectators, we are always going to be under threat of this sort of ‘B’ team nonsense as a condition of financial support from the Premier League fat cats. They got their way in 2016 with the EFL trophy, who’s to say they won’t again when the financial squeeze really starts to tighten its grip without paying customers through the turnstiles? Robbie has featured prominently in this debate in recent weeks, and looks like he will again on Sky tomorrow if this tweet from Sophy Ridge is anything to go by -
