Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
Have had another look/think about that second penalty in the cold light of YouTube. It shouldn't have been given. Lamela was fishing for it, running into Virgil's path. If there was any contact at all it was minimal and Virgil was trying to avoid it, and Lamela made a meal of it. Seems like Pochettino may have a second career as an Olympic diving coach, what with Kane, Alli and Lamela. No wonder he praised the officials for making perfect decisions. Jon Moss was very soft on Spurs in the first half too. His behaviour seemed quite unprofessional. And he didn't seem to understand the offside rule either.
