Nah that free kick was fair game. We weren’t focused, Dunk was. A bit of cheeky quick thinking. You love to see it, really 

It all comes back to Allison’s brain fart.

He keeps his head and even if they scored none of what followed happens . I actually think Atkinson gave Brighton some leeway on the quick fk because we were taking up time and that he thought Allison’s professional foul had prevented a goal .
He was wrong to give them an advantage to try and even the score but it doesn’t matter now

Just pointing out that as a supposedly neutral participant, it isnt in atkinson's or any other ref's remit for that matter to give the attacking team some leeway. He either asks the attacking team if they want to take a quick free kick OR measure the regulation distance from ball to wall.

 

Out of all the match reports Ive read, only Chris Bascombe in the Telegraph points a finger at atkinson's, erm, assistance to Brighton on the free kick.

 

Ive seen people say it's just the same as Trent's corner v Barcelona. No, it really isnt anything like. Clearly, Barcelona didnt have their keeper sent off. Neither was there a 'debate' about where the ball would be kicked from nor one of the positioning of a defensive wall.

 

Look, Id happily swallow Brighton's goal if I was confident atkinson or any other ref would allow us to take a similar free kick against an opponent in the same circumstances when their keeper has been sent off. But Im not at all confident because atkinson in particular has shown a litany of poor decisions against us.

Apparently Dunk asked the ref if he could take it, the ref was like “yeah go for it lad” 

 

im fine with it. Thought Atkinson was pretty shite, as usual, for other reasons. Thought he was actually quite lenient with us throughout the match and gave us some soft fouls etc

I said Atkinson was wrong . He's not the best for sure but I don't see a conspiracy

As well as being out of position and in no man's land I believe Allison's desire to keep a clean sheet and just reactied on instinct.. Not bad having adrain in on Wednesday as opposed to mig. We'll be fine.
