We all know that Tottenham are Arsenal’s nearest neighbours in London, but I am beginning to think they may actually be from another planet! I’m not sure what game they were watching on Saturday but they were definitely looking at it from a completely different perspective than all the TV pundits and of course the analysts who proved that just about every referee’s decision was wrong, which is why they escaped with a point.
What am I talking about? Just read these comments from Mauricio Pochettino after the game on BT Sport: “I think if you assess the game I think we were better than Arsenal in all the aspects,”
“Sometimes we focus on a few actions. But I think that the action that changed the game was after 12 minutes. The action from Xhaka to Harry Kane that wasn’t even a foul.
“That was the action that afterwards changed everything in the dynamic of the game. This season we are so unlucky, decisions that affect us in a negative way.
“Like (against) Manchester United, Paul Pogba should be sent off, Harry Kane got an injury when it was a clear foul on the edge of the box but no foul.
“We keep on going in many, many, many situations but you know, hope that we get to the end of the season and next season change maybe and we have more luck in the future.”
So, I don’t see any mention of the studs to Leno’s chest, no mention of Rose’s stamp on Koscielny, no mention of the encroachment at the penalty? No mention of Torreira getting sent off after winning the ball?
Wow what planet is this man on, honestly?
