    Football really is a game of small/fine margins.

    Had South Korea reached the final in Asia, then we probably wouldnt have won any of the 2 games this week.

    Thanks Son. I sense you are taking on more responsibility on the pitch. Never stop smiling.

    I love this guy. He embodies the humility and willingness to simply be a hardworking cog of the team, that characterizes many South East Asian cultures. I must admit that I would have willingly got rid of after his first season but now... only Harry Kane is a player I deem more indispensable. Not even Eriksen and Alli....

    Such a refreshing change from the self-centred arrogance of so many players who aren't fit to lace his boots.

    We really should invite the Qatari national team over as a small thank you because, if it were not for them, we would be 5 points off the table, completely out of the title race and anxiously looking over our shoulders for a top four place

    commentator on tv attributed newcastle goal to keeper error!
    it was such a sweet strike that the ball had both speed and a vicious dip that fooled the keeper. sometimes its better to have ex-pro footballers because they notice such subtleties.

    well done son, brilliant take, quick feet and a superb strike. kane could learn a thing or two from son !

    To be fair to Kane, he's probably one of the cleanest strikers of the ball I've ever seen. Quick, short backlift, unbelievable power.

    Not sure Son can teach him much on that.

    Agreed. Kane is just about the only player in our squad who could teach Son a thing or two about finishing rather than the other way around.

    We would've been fuming had it been Lloris letting in that shot. Granted It's not as easy as it looks, but as a goalkeeper you're expected to stop that shot.

    No doubt about it. It was what it looked like - a terrible error by the ‘keeper.

    I watched the goal many times, to me there was a wicked dip on the ball. The rate at which it dipped waa obvious, and supported by the keepers reactions to the change in flight of the ball.

    But hey, we see what we see.

    sure Kane is the better striker of the ball between the two.

    but if kane doesn't learn to shift defenders the other way more before shooting, like son, he will risk injuring his ankles more as defenders learn that he doesn't have that trick up his sleeve.

    IMO Son is going to be crucial for us long term as Kane is going to get more injuries as he doesn't get the ball quickly out of his feet, making him an easy target for a "strategic" tackle.

    Agree with what you're saying, but a keeper should be allowing for that.
    Benitez calls it a mistake.

    Benítez said. “I don’t blame anyone [for the goal]. Everybody can make a mistake. ”

    Er... you just blamed him

    Never mind Spurs player of the season, I’d say Son should be in with a shout to be winning player of the season and FWPOTS given how many goals he has scored and the sheer amount of travelling he has had to do back and forth, TWICE and just months after a World Cup.

    Benitez only deals in ‘facts’ so this must be true

    I'm hoping Son moves to Barcelona so I can jump ship and start supporting them instead...
    Some of the comments I read in this thread (or forum) are utterly thoughtless, or even downright insulting or offensive.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm glad he's back from the tournament early just as most, if not all, are. Poch was fairly blunt in his assessment as well. I guess it's not enough to be happy that he got an exemption from military service. Of course, I'm not so naive to ignore the fact that Son is so important for us and that's why we all wanted him to stick around instead of traveling for international duty.
