He's right - its a total non event. As usual the only ones getting their frilly knickers in a twist are scousers concerned that he might overtake Salah. Reading some of the comments on BBC you almost feel embarrassed for them - haven't they got anything better to do..........................

Poch showing he is the most sensible fellow in football:
http://www.espn.co.uk/football/tott...negative-reaction-to-disputed-goal-pochettino

"Today everyone can talk, and everyone can give his opinion. We are more than happy to live in a society in most of the world that we feel freedom to talk, to say, to write, to do what we want. Why? We need to accept that people have different opinions. I'm sure Harry has accepted that different people have different visions about his actions.
"I am not disappointed. Why would I be? I was a player -- but not so good like Harry -- but when you touch the ball, and you are right, it's normal to say, 'I scored the goal.'
"I don't care about the cameras. There is no point to create a problem if you did touch the ball. Harry is a very honest person and is not going to lie about that. We create a massive issue when it is not an issue."

Wasn't at all interested before, but now I hope he beats Salah to the golden boot by 1 goal.
Salah's reaction to the goal being awarded came across like he doesn't appreciate the competition for the golden boot. The guy has been magnificent this season but surely he must appreciate that Kane is entitled to claim a goal if he had the last 'positive' touch. I would hope that Salah doesn't just want the golden boot handed to him.

......and I'm sure he wouldn't have claimed it if the roles were reversed. :whistle:

But Salah and his team mates twitter responce shows they may have got their 'frilly knickers in a twist' too. TBH if it was the other way round fans on here would be reacting the same way too.

maybe, but not all of us. If its his goal then he wants to claim it. Like all great strikers he is chasing records, and wants every goal he can get his hands on. If he did get a touch then its his - end of argument, and the same goes for Salah too.
