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.
