I know people have various views about "tourists" at the Lane but I found myself smiling throughout that.
What a day and what an experience for that couple to have, welcomed warmly by the locals and an amazing match, atmosphere and result as well.
They tried their best to join in with the crowd and to be honest, were probably better company than many of the miserable old bastards that used to be there when I was a regular!

I used to be able to get to the Lane once a month and one of the best times I had there was with a couple of lads who had come over for the game from Ireland.
They were buzzing and helped make it a great day, helped by the fact we won, of course (which was quite a rarity in those days!).
The Korean fans are part of our fan base now. I think they are great and will make sure I hug a fellow Korean Yid next time we score

They get unnecessary flak for being tourists at times, yet they bring more positivity and enthusiasm than the regulars who have been going for years.

Its strange to remember a few years ago when they first started turning up and standing out but now really are some of our own.

Full game is up on SPURSPLAY. You can make a cuppa every time Foderingham has the ball.

And if he doesn't handball kulu IS through on goal.
Not by the definition of the laws. The ball must be going in the direction of the goal for Denying a Goal by Handling to be called. The ball was outside the box and headed toward the end line. The ref got a lot wrong in this match, but this one he called this spot on.

TBF, thought this was a terrible edit. Many of the truly baffling situations aren't in there. For example, the situation where Robinson (?) tries to get Son carded by hitting him from close with a free-kick just to miss him entirely so Son picks it up and starts driving at goal. Bankes then blows the whistle, cards Robinson (unsportsmanlike behaviour I guess?), and lets him retake the free kick?!
Or the push on Bissouma in the area wasn't enough contact, but an even lighter touch from Brennan in their area, and the goal gets chalked off for a foul?

Apologies all. I know you were waiting for me to review. Here goes.


Hmm. Having looked at that video, NONE of the decisions are controversial. Some are debatable, and one is an obvious error (Solomon shot). End Of.
It’s not the best video to show some of the decisions is it? Though it could have been twice as long.
