Richard Keys has been left stunned by the decision not to hand West Ham United a penalty against Burnley on Sunday.

Craig Dawson was brought down by Dwight McNeil in the 0-0 draw at Turf Moor, but nothing was handed to the Irons.

Keys couldn’t believe that it wasn’t deemed as “clear and obvious”, given that everyone who saw the incident believed that it was.

Writing in his latest blog on Monday (13th December) Keys was left raging at the decision against the Irons.

“Why didn’t West Ham get a pen at Burnley?” he wrote.

“Dawson was halved from behind – it was a worse challenge than the one that resulted in Chelsea’s first. ‘Clear and obvious’?

“It was to everybody except Jon Moss in VAR. Am I surprised? Not a bit.” 


How can this one have happened and not gone penalised?

McNeil went through Dawson and that type of challenge has always been a foul, so we must have missed something after this one.

David Moyes had every right to be raging too, as one point most likely would have been turned into three and brilliant victory on the road.

It’s all about not dwelling on this one though, and moving forward with the next clash on our mind has to be the way forward.

Consistency is something that hasn’t been in the Premier League since it was created, and despite having all this technology, it is getting worst.
