And if you got to the ball first and the goalkeeper caught you on the foot, you would have received a penalty as well.
He left his foot there so he could get the contact again I'm not saying it wasn't a penalty at all but a harsh one to give against the goalkeeper who couldn't do much about it.

The keeper chose to come for the ball. It’s not right to say the keeper couldn’t do much about it. Once he chose to come for the ball he is risking contact and a penalty if he is second to it.

Are you now saying Barnes dived?

Allison came for the ball FFS. Once he fails to get it he is gone if contact is made.

Say whatever you want it's not a "stonewall decision" I still think it's a harsh one to give again the penalty is there don't twist that one.

The penalty is there but it's a harsh one to give? :rolleyes:

It's either there or it isn't.

It's a stonewall decision. You might want to read up on your rules chum. Allison doesn't even have to make contact for that to be given. He only has to impede the player and Barnes had precisely nowhere to go but over the top of the keeper. I repeat, because you seem a little slow and don't actually know the rules of football...Allison made the decision to come for the ball. He didn't get the ball but he impeded the player who couldn't avoid him.

It's. A. Penalty. Every. Day. Of. The. Week.

Will now add another year to the complaining about Pickford
The peculiar part about the blaming Pickford for their woes argument is that they have conceded 1, 1, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1 in the league since.

Dropping points to Burnley, United, Saints, Newcastle, West Brom, Fulham, Brighton, City.

Defending isn’t the issue, scoring is.
