It’s pretty weird (Suspicious?) that some apparent close calls are settled quite quickly and no lines are shown whereas other not so close calls take an eternity and we see the lines. Happened yesterday also at the Villa game.
I don’t think it’s suspicious, it’s more a competence issue. We’ve seen how quickly these guys have to make decisions. It’s fertile ground for errors being made.

Nobody is holding a gun to your head telling you to act this way.
Eh? didn't say there was. The fans utilised their free will and acted accordingly. Just because you disagreed with it doesn't make it wrong

I'm sure the VAR just did his job quickly and accurately but I was surprised how quickly it was checked and cleared. Logic also says we'd have heard something besides some random guy on Twitter estimating via vanishing point. Although part of me really would love it to be true!

I’ll say it again....maybe if we hadn’t lost 4 out of 5 crucial games leading up to this one, then this situation wouldn’t have occurred.

I think the culture of the club has a part to play in our lack of success but making out that last night was the biggest problem is a massive stretch imo.

I like Ange though. His response is one I would want from our manager.

I don't think Ange has said that the fans are the biggest problem though. He has said it's inside and out of the team. Us fans have then just ran with it as us fans.

Some fans then call out the others or calling them not real fans ect and it just blew up.

Do we need to change as fans? Of course. But we also need to see it from the players (admit they did show it last night) on more occasions than they have been recently. The club need to back Ange with players and staff that he wants also. But it needs to be from top down imo it changes.

I don't think we played badly at all. We lacked quality at times and there were some wayward passes that gave City opportunities to score but we moved the ball from front to back slickly. Maddison looked like he was back to his best last night.

Yeah I don’t think you can ever change the culture of the fans first. It just doesn’t work like that.

I’d like us to not duck out of the domestic cups in the early rounds against :insert town name here: FC. How about that changing of the club culture.

If 30+ years of being a Spurs fan surrounded by Chavs, Arse and West Ham fans (collectively known as the triumvirate of evil) doesn't make you fragile then you are a better man than me...

I may already have been fragile, but Spurs definitely haven't helped :cautious:

Oh come now, don't start using this defeat as a stick to beat him when half of our fan base wanted to fucking lose this game.
What this last 48 hours have taught him is that half of our fans are just content with seeing our rivals lose, more than wanting our team to progress.

You've got to remember, he's not a yid or a gooner, he just wants what's best for his team and having a stadium full of people who only sung when we were losing is not good for what he's trying to build.
There's no easy way of saying it but it's an embarrassing thing to have witnessed tonight.

Fuck Arsenal, let's concentrate on ourselves to a while or we'll forever be living in their shadow.
It was a unique situation, they just relaxed once losing and sang to offer some support to him and the team for the season. I think he's reading too much into it, tonight wasn't where CL was lost.

As an aside it would have been a strange atmosphere if the Son chance had gone in, an instinctive cheer mixed with an eerie panic I would imagine being that a draw was no good anyway. What was it like in the ground in the South Stand when he was going through for anyone that was there?

Does anyone know why Bentancur was so angry? From what I deduced, he had already been booked then had another infraction which is what I thought the ref called Son over about. Bentancur was taken of shortly after that and I thought the manager didn't want to risk a sending off

I was really hoping for this exact outcome. We play really well, but end up losing due a VAR fuck-up. We can feel proud of the team without gifting Arsenal the league. Just hope this starts picking up a lot of traction online for maximum gooner tears.

Seems like De Bruyne may indeed have been offside

I’ve mentioned it before that it is very strange, and open to conspiracy theories, that some offside calls are shown where others are not.It seems very straightforward forward to me that ALL offside decisions by VAR should be shown with the lines. That way there is no dispute.

This game has been blown WAY out of proportion, mainly due to emotions which is understandable.

Fact is, this sort of game with all the variables has not happened in decades, I read earlier a game against Utd in 1999 was similar? I was 8 so not one for me. But my whole life supporting Spurs i've never known a game like this, it's unprecedented.

Fact is, the team played bloody well, no one can debate that at all.

The fans naturally in the stands backed the team quite well mostly I thought, the apprehension and anti Arsenal chants were always going to happen when we went down a goal, it's win win in the sense if we win, excellent, but if we lose, fuck Arsenal.

If 4th place was well and truly in our hands last night it would have been a different story, as it was though, even if we won last night we probably would still finish 5th. Would most prefer to finish 5th with Arsenal winning the league or finish 5th with Arsenal not winning the league? That was why alot of fans were in limbo.

Lets stop flinging shit at eachother and just accept it was a freak one off game that will likely not happen again for many many many years.

Beat Sheffield, back Ange and start a fresh next season.

To be honest all this bollocks could be in vein if the spammers but a dent in City's hopes come Sunday. I wouldn't put it pass them and I don't think their fans give a flying feck about arsenal or any other club for that matter.
