    No, it’s correct.

    I believe the Mirror has quoted the same person.

    Essentially they're saying what everyone already knew - the Chelsea shot is taken a few frames after the ball has been played. That's obvious because the ball is blurred in Chelsea's image.

    It is good we won the first leg but wish we had won by more goals. It was not a convincing performance and result. With a slim 1-0 win, we will be under pressure in the second leg at Chelsea. It was disappointing the way we got outplayed by Chelsea for whole match. We didn't look like scoring apart from the penalty scored by Kane. Remember, we had totally outclassed Chelsea and could have scored 10 goals against them when we beat them 3-1 in the league just a few weeks ago. It is puzzling why we were poor against them this time despite playing a strong team. Let's hope we will lift our game in the second leg and get at least a draw to progress to the Final.

    Credit to Kane for winning the penalty and scoring from it. He also had 2 other shots saved by the goalie. But apart from that, we didn't have any clear shots at goal. Our key players like Eriksen, Alli and Son had a poor game. Was really disappointed with Alli as he was not involved in any of our attacks. Remember, Alli always enjoys turning up against big teams with crucial goals but he had a quiet match this time. Son and Eriksen were virtually missing for whole match. Maybe we should have started with Lamela who had a positive impact when he came on in the second half.

    Our midfield had a mixed match. Thought we got outplayed in midfield but we improved in the second half. Sissoko worked hard as usual but his finishing again let him down. Winks had a poor match as he made too many mistakes. Maybe we would have done better with Wanyama, Dembele and Dier in midifield.

    Well done to our defence for keeping this clean sheet. Gazzaniga deserves full credit for making many saves to stop Chelsea. Amazingly, we have now won 9 matches in which Gazzaniga was in goal. Alderweireld and Sanchez too did their part to stop Chelsea. Rose too was good in defending too making a few crucial tackles.

    With only a 1-0 lead, it is going to be a tense match in the second leg. Maybe we should call upon the spirit of 2002 when we lost to Chelsea 1-2 in the first leg but thrashed them 5-1 at home in the second leg to qualify to the 2002 League Cup final. Let's hope we will have all our players fully fit for the second leg to help us progress to the Final.

    The moment the ball hit the net, I literally couldn’t give a fudge about VAR, or chelseas noddy fudging laptop.
    Goal counted. Move on! Next please!

    Can I just say a few things?
    1) Clattenberg is notorious, attention-seeking taco.
    2) His initial instincts were right.
    3) His “Daily Mail employee instincts are precisely that.
    4) What Alonso’s body is or isn’t doing has no bearing on Kane. How many times has Kane used a split second knowledge of such a pass to gain the advantage? The chelski photo was after the ball left Toby’s foot and the fact Alonso was static in all frames shows why he was never going to get there anyway!

    Interesting that no-one seems interested in asking why Sonny didn’t get a pen or why Lamela and Sissoko were each flagged for lesser fouls than Christiansen got away with?

    Sky disgust me. The Daily Fail disgust me. Clattenberg cannot even get proper employment.

    I'd rather celebrate a goal with 70% of the passion than not at all, but getting a pen that almost wasn't just adds to it.

    I saw it was a pen from where I was. I also firmly believe Sonny’s was a pen too.

    Just can’t be arsed with 3 days of endless boring droning media scrutiny and moronic debate.

    Goal was given, debating it is just pointless waffle!

    Im pretty convinced this is ALL down to the novelty of it.

    Give us a full season of VAR, and itll become boring and mundane and not worth the talk.

    Right now its the new thing in town and holds everyones focus.

    Quite honestly, itll kill half of the time needed for punditry.

    Possible controversial decision - what did you think - well, err, looked like this but then wasnt and VAR called it right.

    I actually enjoyed the build up. I thought it had been called back because VAR had said it was offside. As soon as it was apparent he was on, there was the realisation that the pen had to be given, and the corresponding elation when it was. Then the nervousness of Kane taking the run up, then the unbridled joy of 'take that Chelsea you scummy clams!'

    Some people just need something to be angry about and media are too lazy to do any actual journalism.

    I must stress at no point did I suggest I agreed with Clattenberg, was just supplying the view of a referee who I assume is better placed to comment than anyone on here whether the guy is liked or not. Even more so I couldnt give a monkeys about the offside as plenty has gone against us so if we got a bit of good fortune then happy days....

    Nobody goes into forums to debate, they go on to educate.

    Think it’s definitely the 2nd point when it comes to media coverage!

    Losing Kane and Sissoko has put the final kybosh on this cup.
    Our full focus must now go on our top four league positions.

    We were never going to beat City anyway:rolleyes:

    Hadn't really looked too carefully at Chelsea's flimflam image as my permanent assumption is that Chelsea are cheating and that instinct has never yet been wrong.

    Taking a closer look, isn't it quite clear that Kane has taken a step between the VAR image and theirs? Looking at the VAR image, Kane has his right foot forward, looking at Chelsea's his let foot is a step in front. Am I just seeing things or is it really that clear?

    Pay attention to Tobys end of it as well. One is as the ball is kicked, the other is after.

    Its not rocket science, embarrasing really that they even bought it forward. No shame at all.

    Though its mission accomplished, there is now plenty of negative press around VAR, hopefully (in their mind) meaning they get to keep the unfair advantage they enjoy in influencing referees in game.
