1st off, Sunderland never should've been in the game, Walcott failed to put them away twice in the 1st.

Play was ruled dead a good 3-4 seconds before the ball was in the net. Atkinson started to blow it dead before Jozy got free. If you have it DVRed, you can see right at 70:00 that he's starting to go the whistle while they're still tangled up. Intent to blow, just like hockey. He can't assume he's gonna get lose, he was being held for 3 whole seconds. How long can you wait on an advantage to see if it ever happens? It's also a push by can't score off your own foul. So you give the 1 foul from the beginning. Not saying it was a great decision, but I think it's far from the awful one people are making it out to be.

Even if it is a goal, you're telling me there is zero way they score again with 20 to play if it's level at that point? GMAFB
