    No, that's the one I'm talking about. It was flagged offside beforehand.

    The Alli one had nothing in it at all.

    Lanzini and Noble really let West Ham down on that equalizer.

    Too bad they couldn't get a win but a draw is nice too.

    Lanzini should have gotten on with it, but that was a foul. At least if we're agreeing that Noble's tackle warranted a card because they were carbon copies of one another.

    Noble, sure he could have closed him down more. Great hit, though.

    Noble could have closed down more, just as Eriksen could have on Obiang's goal.

    Oh it was definitely a could but the ref didn’t give it and Lanzini stayed on the deck.

    Noble completely ignored the scouting report on that Son shot though.

    Three points behind second, three and goal difference ahead of fifth, five points ahead of sixth. Feels good man.

    Such an easy season to finish top 4 and still have enough to make a credible run in CL and now we are struggling in 5th and out this next stage of the CL.

    I get its not my money but for once it would be nice to see some attempt at ambition from Spurs.

    West Ham put in a good defensive performances. If Joe Hart had started I think the game would have looked entirely different. Pretty sure the shot count was 25 to 1. But that one shot by West Ham, bloody hell.

    As for Pochettino, I'm not sure what in the world he was ****ing smoking when he decided to start Sissoko as a CM tonight. Especially considering that he likes playing heavy possession, West Ham would most surely concede possession to us, and that we had three much better options that he all put on the bench instead. He turned out to be the liability I expected him to be. Would rather have played with ten men. He should only play if we plan on counter-attacking, no other situation. The fact that he let him be on the pitch until the 74th minute (great time to make your first sub, eh?) is ludicrous.

    We'd easily have been in the top four if we still played at White Hart Lane. The timing of our new stadium hasn't been the greatest.

    I have full faith in the way Levy handles our finances. Can't be easy when paying off the new stadium. What I don't have faith in is Pochettino choosing transfer targets. Impossible to do considering that he wanted Sissoko.

    This most likely qualifies as over the top embellisment (Adryan of Leeds), anything less than this is open to interpretation...

    If Adryan grabbed his shin at the end, despite the contact being with his foot, then yeah it'd pretty much be exactly the same.

    Although not at top level, this one is high on embellishment as well. Is he sure the ref noticed the foul...

    I remember a Chilean (?) guy who would roll over for 15 meters in the 70s/80s, I think it was in a WC. Saw some clips of him when I was younger, but I can't remember the guy's name, nor his country (it's either Chile or at least south american). This was the most hilarious theatricals I had ever seen.
    There are some good ones of Ronaldo (with United) where he was would roll over as if shot, and the replay showed he jumped WAY over the leg and thus didn't even get touched at all (it was on a sideline).
