Spurs are having some truely

dreadful decisions going against them last couple of weeks. Following on from the two awful decisions last week against Liverpool. The linesman wrongly given Liverpool a throw in, which lead to the only goal of the game, then the ref and VAR not giving what was a clear Red Card for Roberston for his awful studs up tackle. This week their was a clear hand ball in the area by a Watford player, not even looked at. A week or so ago, the slightest brush of the ball on the arm of a West Ham player, and the goal was ruled out. Yet not even a sniff of a penalty to Spurs yesterday for an even clearer handball. Then we had another dreadful high tackle by Capoue that was not even yellow carded, when Red would have been the correct decision.

Football is not a level playing field, if VAR is going to be used, then it has to be used correct. How can two really awful tackles in successive games not even be deemed yellow cards? I don`t get it. Are the officials just not watching properly, what about those VAR officials who see what we all see, how can they not give the correct decisions?


Oh and the ball about a millimetre from going over the line. How Spursey was that? Spurs have to be the unluckiest team on the planet, whilst others get luck in spadefulls.

Weve been lucky with decisions on the whole tbh especially have more points than our performances warrant

What lucky decisions have we had that have benefited us? The couple of VAR decisions that went in Spurs favour were actually the correct decisions.

I don't even care about the throw in. It didn't directly lead to a goal. Not sure about the other matters but dodgy decisions are the least of our problems right now. What we need to do is just play better so dodgy decisions don't affect our results.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
It really gets on my nerves when the channel showing the game really focus on whether a throw/corner/free kick was correctly given. If we defend the thing properly it won't matter a jot. Same thing happened with a corner at Burnley last season and Poch went mental.

Just because its wrongly given doesn't mean they have to score from it.

That's not the point. It was a 100 per cent wrong decision. As were at least two yesterday, one of which should have resulted in a penalty, and one in a sending off.

That throw in decision against Pool was clear as day, of course we should defend it better but we wouldn't have to if the officials gave the correct decisions.

It is the finer details that can make the biggest difference.

I'm not sure about the hand ball as I don't think he meant it and his arm wasn't that high however I agree that the failure to at least book Robertson last week and Capoue (for his challenge on Tanganga) this week was crazy.

Do you not think the failure to deal with a throw in that bounced on the edge of our box was a bigger disgrace than the wrongful award to Liverpool?

We would have had a goal in the old days. And I don't think VAR can measure millimeters. There's a human looking at VAR and making the decision.

We have had some awful decisions - Rose handball v City, Sissoko handball v Liverpool, Son's red card v Everton, Our disallowed goal to go 2-0 up V Leicester.

We've also had some clear pens (prior to VAR) that have unbelievably been missed.

I'm sure everyone feels this way about their side, but VAR does seem to be strange.

Aubameyang's challenge v Palace could have been seen in the same way as Robertson's v Spurs.

Red card for one, nothing for the other.

I think it was Robertson that kicked out off the ball also, which could have been seen in the same way as Son's recent red card - a needless act of aggression.

Red card for one - nothing for the other.

I'm actually glad Jose is speaking out against VAR - well speaking without speaking, as it will pressure referees to side with us on decisions.

There's no way a referee would give a big 50/50 decision in Poch's favour if he was playing a Ferguson side.

What irritates me, is when they get a referee / former referee to look at the decisions by VAR.

During our game v Palace the numpty justified all the decisions as correct calls and then with one that couldn't be justified, he said 'I've got no where to go with this one'.

That line alone shows it's a referees club and they'll back them all the way unless it's such a ridiculous decision that they can't

The thing is, some of these decisions are not even debatable, yet they come to the wrong decision.

It's abundantly clear most of the referees have their own agendas and favour certain clubs over others.

I remember both Kane and Dele being rugby tackled in the penalty area and neither the referee or VAR decided it was a penalty, even though it was the most blatant you will ever see. Contrast that with certain other clubs being gifted penalties after having their ankle grazed etc, something is not right.
