    Both NBC commentators in the States during the match said the Son "dive" was a penalty and that Madison was probably not a penalty. Maybe NBC just likes us better due to the Keller/Dempsey history. They still fluff liverpool and ManU, but I don't detect quite the same hate.

    Yes clearly fancies himself as a pundit and doesn’t want to upset anyone
    He also couldn’t wait to say how much better than us Leicester were

    Ha ha.... I notice that, just to be different, ex-ref Mark Cunttenburg has been quoted in the Mail as saying BOTH penalty appeals were based on dives and both Son and Maddison should have been booked. What a dildo.

    Jenas was a total softcock on Motd2. Not sure if he’s trying to demonstrate how objective he is, but he was talking fucking bollocks.

    Mason is officially our man in the media.

    Often seen defending us against lower profile figures, yet cowers in the presence of 'big names' like Lineker & Shearer...

    This!!!

    I can understand some of why Son didn’t get it and got booked. He kind of dangles his right foot outwards to “hang on” to Maguire’s leg as Maguire moves it away.

    It was one of those that legitimately could have been given because there was a very light “foul” on him, which he then emphasised/exaggerated.

    More outrageous was the penalty Oliver didn’t give Son against Liverpool. That was a 100% stoner.


    Their penalty seemed more like Maddison falling into Vertonghen.

    I really wish they’d completely re-think penalties. Instead of being awarded just because a player gets fouled in the area, regardless if they are in a position to score or create a clear goal scoring chance, they should make penalties for anywhere in the attacking half where a foul/hb prevents a clear chance (including the clear assist of one) and just have direct free kick for non threatening fouls inside the box.

    It’s daft that a player clean through on goal gets fouled 6 inches outside the box is rewarded/punished less than a player tripped going the opposite direction 6 inches inside the box down toward the corner flag

    Seriously incredibly soft doesn't even cover it, it was an absolute nonsense decision. anyone who thinks that was even remotely a hint of a foul needs to book an appointment with specsavers.

    This really does remind me how irritating it is to fall short in the league against a team like Leicester riding an unbelievable wave of form.

    Same as Chelsea two years ago. They blow hold and cold like nobody's business these last few seasons, but still decided to turn it on for 38 games to beat us to the title. Meanwhile, we're consistent but get nothing for it (yet).

    To give Leicester some credit though, they've been impressive against the top 6 this year. Being horribly inconsistent against the dross that makes up the rest of the league has been their downfall.

    Jermaine Jenas is a traitor to state Son dived despite replay showing contact by Macguire and MOTD2 failed to analyse Leicester's 'joke' penalty.

    On Saturday MOTD didn't show Kocielny's clear handball and him feigning the ball hit him in the groin and then acting, proof it was deliberate.

    quite often when they are being fouled from behind by defenders trying to prevent them from doing their job.
    Don't mention it - but don't worry, if you watch the game long enough, you might be able to work stuff out for yourself. Particularly if you play the game and get to be reasonably good at it.

    Tomorrow we can do basic defence.
    Lesson one. Learning how to spell the word correctly.

    Maybe I am the only one, but it looks like Son tries to move his foot towards the leg therefore trying to con the ref. I probably would not say it was a yellow, but it was not a penalty. He did dive earlier in the game though so maybe the ref was remembering that.

    OH NO EVERYONE HATES US. It must be so difficult being a spurs fan. I can't believe a pundit would disagree with a biased opinion.

    The difference of opinion on the Penalties by so called experts including Ex Ref's shows that even after VAR there will be disagreements.

    We do have an outfield player that does this, always and without fail, when Kane's on the field it's always him, it's accepted by the refs too. On Sunday that player was Eriksen.
