    Was that the leg breaker tackle? Disgraceful tackle which should have been a red.

    But that was way worse than Kompany’s, that was studs up shin high with intent.

    Awful tackle by Norwood, but not sure about the intent. Which one’s worse is not relevant. Both were bad tackles worthy of yellows, where the ball was played first. Your post suggested if the ball is taken first it should not be a foul.

    Kompany left the ground with two feet studs up. Salad jumped otherwise that was a potential leg breaker. Kompany comes across as a nice bloke so gets away with reckless challenges too often - just ask Aaron Lennon.

    I made a rare foray into twitter and asked for you!

    Unfortunately Swiss Ramble said:

    You would have to make some assumptions, so probably not worth doing. I just didn’t want to give the impression that Spurs had loads of spare cash to spend on players

    Both should have been red cards IMO

    No such thing as a foul on Salad

    It all depends on who you play for and who it's against, the keeper got a slight touch on the ball and if he hadn't caught Moura the ball was close enough to Moura to tap it in to an empty net. The standard of commentary was awful, completely ignoring all the after ball contact on Dele and Lily managed to say he wasnt in game minutes before their stats showed he had had the most touches.

    So should Lovrens on Aguero
    That one seems to be forgotten but that was the most intentional foul of the lot

    Yes, but it wasn't dangerous play. Just cynical.
    But Im of the opinion that those type of tackles should be punished harder. There is no intent to take the ball, only to hack down the player, to prevent a possible scoring opportunity. I think those should be red cards, but the rules are not made that way now.

    Spurs made a small profit and thus paid a bit of tax... most clubs don't, they reinvest and spend spend spend rather than paying tax.
    It is a murky world.
    We've invested massively in buildings rather than players.
    We're playing the long game.
    It is amazing we are doing so well on the pitch at the same time.

    So that sentence/rule could be more clearly written as;

    Any strong challenge that endangers an opponent is worthy of a red card. Ridiculous. Which rule book did you find that gonad*s?

    [Dons tinfoil hat...]

    I must say, i was impressed with Liverpool's play during their big clash with City last week. Their midfield and full-backs remind me on us at our best two seasons ago...if we finish above them again this season i think that would be a GREAT reflection of our squad and Poch's management of it through the PL season..

    So, Wolves have beaten Chelsea, Spurs and Liverpool(FA Cup) and drew with Arsenal, ManCity and ManU this season. Wolves have been real spoilers this season. And they will face ManCity away next.
