Fans still moaning about the heat lol, it was bloody hot against Sunderland & we dominated them.

There was more cloud cover on Saturday & it even started raining.

So shove that excuse up your arse.

I take it you wasn't there then? I wasn't in the sun and was sweating and even got a spot dizzy myself.

It wasn't just hot mate, it was ****ing muggy as shit out. 

 

I played squash at 9am in the morning and didn't stop sweating until the sun went down.

 

It was properly humid out, it was quite clear that both teams were feeling the weather.

I sat in the family stand & to me in terms of weather Sunderland was just as bad. The sun hardly went in that day unlike Saturday, much more cloud cover.

It was the lack of breeze that made it different

Just because the sun isn't directly out doesn't mean it can't be hotter than when it is.

Well, it's good to know your performance of sitting in your seat wasn't affected during the Spurs game. 

 

You'll go straight into my starting 11 'seat-sitting' team on hot days from now on.  :)

We flagged in the second half against Sunderland too, the weather played it's part there. Just we had such a control over the game that we didn't have against Spurs.

how can he possibly think the ref is right here

 

 

Penalty appeal: Riyad Mahrez (Leicester) v Tottenham

 

SCENARIO: Leicester winger Mahrez receives a pass in the penalty box and holds the ball up while being marked closely by Jan Vertonghen. The Tottenham defender, in his attempts to prevent a goalscoring opportunity for Leicester, grabs hold of Mahrez's shirt before making a challenge, bringing down Mahrez. 

 

REFEREE DECISION: Martin Atkinson does not award Leicester a penalty and play continues. 

 

DERMOT SAYS: I think the referee is actually right to play on. From the referee's view, he sees Mahrez grab hold of Vertonghen's shirt. Without a doubt, Vertonghen has also got a hold of Mahrez's shirt. I think he sees the situation as six of one, half a dozen of the other. 

Both players are pushing and shoving. In this case, whichever way the referee goes he's going to be wrong. If he gives a free-kick to the defender, he'll then be blamed. With both players at it, the ball is cleared upfield and you're best off continuing play.

Complete clown. 6 of 1 half a dozen of the other for shirt pulling (which was here not there as it wasn't really affecting any player) but what about the kick that swept his standing leg?

I actually think Schlupp is better as a winger, though this has been contested in here.

 

He often seems reluctant to tackle, even when the ball is nowhere near the box.

It was weird he was just making excuses, how he could just dismiss the kick because the ref was concentrating on the shirt pulling, load of shite. Why he couldn't say it was a tough decision for the ref to make in real time with a lot going on, but with the benefit of slo mo replays you can see a clear foul by Vertongen.

Madness to try claim the ref got it right because he was concentrating on the shirt pulling.

A little late for this now, but I thought I would share some words of wisdom:

It is better to say nothing and be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

Just shows, the ref was looking at the shirt pulling, not the fact the defender takes Mahrez's leg from under him.

They should explain then, the difference between this and City's 1st penalty this season..

What makes fans angry, is 1) the Ref had a clear view, 2) inconsistentcies and fear, yes fear the refs have of giving Penalties

3) IMO, There should be at least 3 pens per side in every game, especially from corners.

Refs and their bosses are just not ruling the game.Its amazing how fouling in the penalty area has been totally ignored,

and has now become accepted has bog Standard defending.

Good result

 

Fuchs in for Schlupp though surely. Lazy performance from Jeff and he was AWOL for their goal.

I thought apart from the goal Schlupp had a great game just behind Majrez for me as MOTM he is really developing into a class player

Schlupp versus Gradel against Bournemouth would be interesting. Gradel would definitely question Schupp's mental awareness, particularly if given a fairly free attacking role, while Schlupp could severely test Gradel's defensive improvement if given license to attack.
