Spurs Victory

Premiership Chelsea

comment on the article

As much as I hated the result, the spurs chelsea game was a great one.

Congratulations to spurs!

However, I am not completely sure why this will be a game JT will want to forget. OK his tackle was a big fierce on the halfway line and maybe deserved a yellow. But his actions that got chelsea's second goal disallowed and then sent off were minimal to say the least!
I was proud with the way chelsea never gave up with 10 men, and I was impressed with the attacking play of spurs... If you really want to win - what is to stop you?

I was at the ground, and the other end to where Drogba headed it in. I ca tell you that the whistle was blown in plenty of time; I could hear it from where I was sitting. Dawson clearly stops going for the ball; Robbo clearly doesn't make an effort to save it. Maybe the foul was harsh, but to claim it stopped you from going 2-0 up undermines your argument and makes you seem irrational.

Why do players argue with the ref? When has a ref ever said "you now what, you're right. I'll take it all back!!"..?

It doesn't happen, but still players whine and stick thier fingers in the ref's face.

If I was earning "in a year" what some of these players were earning in a week, I'd be pissed too. Maybe that's why I wouldn't want to be a ref.

If some little half wit run up to me whining about "I'm 10 yards already why should I move, I'd probably slap him" (especially if it was Ashley Cole, but thats cos I'm an Arsenal fan and I'm not over him jumping ship in such an ugly fashion).

But I digress, ref's are necessary evils, as are managers and agents.

Ref's very rarely get credit when they make a decision, but they have to make a decision. Thier decision is final (normally) and they definately don't change them on the field.

I think the only way to solve this is to 1, bring instant replays/fourth official etc. and then, when they do bring in this rule, legitimately book players for whinging and if they get in the refs face they can walk...

Of course Arsenal would never have this problem cos we never complain ;)

Classic Chelsea, They lose a game and it's everyones fault but themselves!
And i totally agree with the poster who reminded us of last year when Mido was sent and Spurs deserved to win, but i guess they have a short or selective memory!

So. to para phrase, that means that it is ok for others to blame a player being sent off but not for Chelsea?

I thought that the BBC had changed this board to stop ignorant WUMS entering banal comments but clearly this hasn't worked.

Earlier, I tried to put forward a rational arguement but nobody seems to want to take that on board. So now I will resort to the following:

We were the better team and desrved at least a point and but for a ref who must have pictures of Martin Jol under his pillow, we would have done.

(Is that stereotypical enough for all you visiting WUMS?)

As a Chelsea fan, I would like congratulate Spurs for their win at the weekend...I was gutted but in the clear light of day I acknowledge that it was a good game and take heart that Chelsea played well

True the ref had a bad game but with Graham Poll surely we have come to expect that. I dont think this ref particularly has it in for Chelsea but I do think that he has a problem with players which he terms as Superstars....(he has a serious ego problem which doesn't bare well for refs)

That said I dont want to take anything away from Spurs....(still gutted though)

as a Liverpool supporter i think that the Spurs - Chelsea match has got to be one of the best of the season so far. Chelsea were not boring for once because things were not going their way and they had to chase. As for Graham Polls decisions,well, who knows what he was thinking. It might have been a warning if JT hadnt bumped his way through players after the goal was dissallowed. Who knows. I dont see chelsea fans screaming bad decision when they get gifted penalties. Poll has been an excellent ref and seems to have strayed off since his 3 yellow card world cup blunder, i still think he is one of the best in the premiership and no ref can ever have a perfect day. Maybe 4th official and video is the way forward, I wonder how the crowd will react for an indecisive ref infront of a hostile home crowd who dissagree with every decision? How long until the 4th ump can make the call?? I vote to keep the fun and the passion in the game.

Jose does add character to the premiership, I am undecided as to whether it is good or bad character though. Just because he cant buy the refferees doesnt mean he has to bad mouth them!

Good game though, I enjoyed the goals, the performance,the drive of both teams was incredible and to keep the pace of the games tempo so high throughout was awesome.Well done Spurs. Chelsea are beatable as we have seen, now to try and drum that into the heads of the manager, players and especially the fans. 90% of them anyway.

Who's reffing the Wigan game this week end by the way?? I just want to know who to blame come Sunday morning if Chelsea lose...again!

Who gives amonkey's? We are playing Watford!
Sunday's result will probably not count for much at the end of the season, especially if we win at Old Trafford in a couple of weeks, it will still be a two-horse race. Liverpool are too far off the pace, their away form is too poor. Also teams seem to have worked Arsenal out, we will see this weekend wont we? Almost a six-pointer that one!
As for Mourinho's attitude after the match, he shook the hand of every Spurs player for heaven's sake! Hardly the actions of a bad loser.
At the end of the day the Thing from Tring is a self-obsessed clown who believes he should be the centre of attraction the whole match.

How can home and away sway so differently.

Todays game proves what a fluke last weeks result was.
How can the same team play so differently, play like Champions against Chelsea with a bit of luck and some poor decisions from Poll in Spurs favour and then get easily beaten by Reading the next week.

Same old tale of woe, Spurs will win NOTHING.
