    I always thought Souness was very pro-Spurs and one of the better Sky pundits?

    [Obviously not last night!]

    A cliche I know but until that 2nd went in Swansea always thought they had a chance of a draw.

    If we'd have got it earlier there may have been a collapse. Glad of the win.

    The conditions were atrocious and although we dominated the game we rode the storm and our luck at times, there is no use trying to say otherwise. I would have been embarrassed and annoyed if Poch had behaved like Wenger or Mourinho (aka the Donald Trump of football) by refusing to admit that Llorente was offside when it was clear as day that he was. He absolutely made the right call by immediately bringing Sanchez off straight after he escaped that 2nd booking, because he is now available to face the Spammers.

    If a pundit is pro Spurs then by definition they must be biased towards us I guess. Let's face it, if a pundit is biased towards us then that's fine.

    3 points in the bag, that's really all that mattered in those conditions. On to the next one.

    I still find it staggering that in all reviews of the game they have completely ignored our two solid penalty shouts. It was as if they never happened. Is it just ineptitude then or what?

    Alli’s diving is certainly counting against him this season. He gets clattered on regular occasions and rarely gets a free kick . Certainly a penalty when he was shoved when going for a long ball. Not even shown on MOTD.

    Same thing happened to Bale. Once the media have stamped him as a diver he won’t get many decisions

    I bet they didn't show Renato Sanchez's dive either. That is a straight 3 match ban as the ref didn't do anything

    All this focus on the offside goal will mean I bet we dont get the decisions on Thursday that we should

    And there was a free kick we should have had in the 34th minute. I bet that doesn't get a mention either. Or the throw on that was given incorrectly against us in the 77th minute. I honestly don't know why they even bother reporting the game. Bunch of biased ****s.

    Did you see the coin toss?
    Something very fishy going on there.

    Looks like it's another silly season for refs. We've got to feel for them, or should we. Tough one.

    I though he called most things OK last night, taking into consideration the conditions. Swings and roundabouts in my eyes, they'll be a time later on where we won't get a decision, and vice versa. That's football.

    On to Thursday now, hope we win from a dodgy pen too !!

    Taking everything into account. Our team done well yesterday...it upset the journalists who want us to drop points so we don't become the giant they fear. Not only did we win we also p***** off some biased pundits. A very happy me today!

    I'm gonna watch the 30 minutes condensed highlights at 1.30 - That'll give me something to gripe about.

    But the 'ref watch' is on right now, bastards.

    Yep, offside goal, get over it. If it was Arsenal/Chelsea/City/Liverpool/United it is a great goal.

    Sanchez getting pelters. Dermot you slaaag.

    No penalty for Dele. Surprised much ?

    Don't know if you'll get to see just how hard DA worked yesterday. The lad deserved his goal.

    Sorry bud. I assumed you missed it dude. Last two games I've started getting that "He's back" feeling.
