Not convinced that was a penalty.

Thought Werner threw himself to the ground.

 

The rule change that intent doesn't matter.

 

We're seeing these penalties where forward gets caught despite it being a coming together.

This is garbage from Spurs. Barely mounted an attack.

 

No Kane. No clue.

Mourinho out!! He sets the team out to defend which is against the instincts of most of the players apart from Hjobjerg and you can see that, it’s not what they do. Football has moved on and he’s not and is too stubborn to believe he could possibly be wrong. He’s lucky there aren’t any crowds as he’d be getting in the neck every game. Arsehole.

Spurs are playing like Levein has trained them all week. 

 

No movement, no forward passes and everybody looks like they are on Mogadon.

The good news for Spurs is they won't have to bother with the Europa League next season.

Mourhino is finished they need to bin him

Correct. People saying it’s down to Kane being out are way off the mark. Under Poch Kane was out for long spells and the goals kept coming. FFS he picks Bergwijn ahead of Moura as he’s better at defending. When a manager picks forwards for their defensive qualities it’s all over. Two wins from the last ten matches, most of which included Kane. Mourinho has lost the team I’d say and he’s definitely lost the supporters, he’s probably still there as it would cost millions to get rid of him.

hasnt he i the last few games flip flopped between a back 3 and back 4 along with never playing a consistent back line? no wonder they struggle at the back when there are constant changes

3 at the back with Davies in it, despite having about 5 proper centre half’s. Sissoko  at right wing back with Doherty, Aurier, and Tanganga fit and ready. Different centre half pairings every game in a back 4. Different forward line ups every game, and several games with the best performers being the guys that come off the bench. Basically suppressing players natural instincts to shoehorn them into a formation. And Hearts fans more than most know that doesn’t work.

As was very predictable Mourinho happy with how Spurs played. Says Chelsea didn't do much and it wasn't a penalty.

I watched bits and bobs of the game last night. I think that was enough. 
 

How a team can lose its way (Spurs)so easily must be alarming to the board?
 

Generally as a sport, this playing from the 6 yard box is becoming so agonising to watch, so bland too, as teams concede possession and put themselves under pressure.
 

You watch Spurs ,who’d have 5 or 6 players in their own half trying to work the ball out,  lose it at the half way line time and again as they are squeezed and lack bodies. If it’s not happening, why not push everyone up and go more direct?
 

I only watch games out of devotion most of the time now. Football is becoming bland.

Soucek red card is ridiculous.

Mike Dean. F'n ****. Never a f'n sending off.

He must have looked at it 20 times........and still got it wrong.

 

VAR has still got issues, due to the clowns reviewing the decisions & we think (sorry know) we have poor referees in Scotland

Even after seeing it on the monitor Dean decides to show the red card. Making a mockery of the game with these decisions.

 

Mitro didn't cover himself in glory but that is the modern players first instinct to go down like that. He did try to stop Dean from going to the monitor probably through embarrassment

**** me.  If that was a red, then the boy who elbowed Halliday last night should be done for attempted murder.  The game’s a bogey.

Mason Greenwood really is a greedy wee shite. He’s so obsessed with shooting he never looks up for team mates. A quick 5 yard run, 23 stepovers and a weak shot is the norm, with the occasional one that goes in and we get told what a talent he is.

Bring on a 3rd centre back with 2 mins of added time left to waste time, then concede from a set piece with 20 seconds to go :rofl:

Pretty stupid sub to make.  Surely if you want to keep the ball down at their corner flag, it’s better to put a winger/attacker on rather than another CH?

De gea should have been kicking for touch with the free kick at the end!

instead puts it straight down the middle to Everton

City won’t lose it from here, they’ve found themselves  in an unbelievable position (and unlikely from their form in the first quarter), snd they simply won’t blow this now. They know how to hold onto a lead at the top of the league, but it would be a very different story of Liverpool hadn’t been operating with half a team all season, they’ll be back next year for sure.

Adams impressed again. Is there still talk of him being called up by Scotland or has he stated he wants to play elsewhere?

Southampton 'goal' disallowed after Ings flagged for offside despite a defender intentionally playing the ball before it got to Ings.

 

Thought they'd decided that now means someone is onside?

 

Only saw motd so apologies if this was covered during the game

Ings was offside from the initial shot by Redmond that was partially blocked 

 

Officials got it spot on for once

It was partially blocked, but then  another Newcastle stretched and intentionally played the ball prior to it reaching Ings. 

 

Their reasoning for Rodri being inside was that once a defender deliberately plays the ball, everyone is back onside. It's a crock of nonsense but if Rodri was onside, then on their reasoning, Ings was onside.

Thought that Newcastle player swiped and missed it hence why it got through to Ings

Maybe he did miss it and that would explain it; I did only see it on MOTD but certainly looked like he played it to me. Might watch it back out of curiosity.

Definitely missed it - the spin of the ball from the partially blocked shot did him

Bizarre scenes at White Hart Lane. 
Mourinho has set the team up to attack. And they’re doing it non stop since kick off, it’s quite refreshing.
