    I was about to post I can't believe Castle is putting up an excellent fight until this possible pk happened.

    Why wasn't that a penalty, Lascalles clearly brought down Kane?

    how did he bring him down?
    Lascalles stumbled, and barely had his arm in Kane, who saw the opportunity to fall down.
    VAR got it right.

    His upper body took Kane's legs away, otherwise Kane would have got the ball and probably a shot at goal.

    Yeah, they give penalties for minuscule handballs that have no effect on the play and take away goals when somebody was a centimetre offside in a buildup a minute before the gpoal was scored. Don't like the VAR use so far, either.

    upon further review I guess I could see it that way, but I think Kane was going down before that.
    I don't think Kane had any intention of playing the ball, as much as he did playing for the foul.

    Yea Kane felt the defender going down and tried to stick his body as much in the way of him as possible to draw the foul. It was at absolute best a 50/50

    I think VAR has been fine.

    i can definatley see how Tottenham fans will feel hard done by, because if that was against Arsenal I would be on the other end of the 50/50 arguement. LOL

    It’s a little unfair for me to just stroll in now after the game is over rather than posting the whole game, but in my defense, I took my lumps yesterday and just got off a plane.

    This is why I say there isn’t a top 3

    I don’t think that Spurs are on the same level as Pool/City but I do feel that they are the third best team.

    There’s a clear top 2 and then spurs and then everyone else. That much is clear

    Possibly, but not by a far margin at all. They are closer to the likes of Leicester than Liverpool or City. I would not be surprised if ******* finish outside the top 4.

    I'm not sure why anyone thought different really. The gap between Liverpool and Tottenham last year was 26 points.

    Is it though? No point in getting into this discussion again but results have not made it clear.
