The short answer to that is, no. The question wouldn't even be asked if the likes of Man City and Liverpool had done it; They'd be drooling out their mouths and down below, over every goal.

That's right. If Spurs had done it with Kane getting a hat trick, the media would never let us hear the end of it.

Theres a bloke on Sunday Supplement who called the Bertrand red an "appalling" decision by the ref. Weird. I get if you think it was "harsh" or "unlucky" but to call it appalling is bizarre. It looked worse on slow motion, true, but it was still a dangerous tackle.

ESPN asking if we disrespected Southampton by scoring 9 against them. FFS, theres always someone who wants to criticise even when we break records

 

 

This is an American sports thing. They have a concept called "running up the score" which is essentially piling on the points / goals when the game is already a "blow out."

 

It's considered a faux pas.

 

Personally think going in to cruise mode to patronise the opponent is actually a lot more disrespectful but hey ho the yanks are weird.

..... and this is why VAR will never resolve incidents because too many so called experts being paid to give their (controversial) opinions.

Not being entirely serious but they should probably ban all media discussion of VAR incidents, apart from anything else it's boring having to listen to them at the expense of discussing the actual football being played.

Just trying to be edgy and different a la Adrian Durham. 

 

Literally every single fan and former professional has called it a blatant red. One of the least controversial of the season. Nobody argued.

The guy who tried to say it wasn't red because there was no force in the tackle, unbelievable.

 

That's tackle on another day with a element of bad luck is a leg breaker.

 

If it had been on Kane or Sterling they would be saying something totally different.

Apparently Man City WERE called disrespectful after their 8-0 v Watford

 

 

Couldn’t give a toss really. You beat the teams in front of you, and you beat them hard if possible

The US is funny like that - since they're so competitive/exploitative socially, they feel the need for extra fairness and balance in sport - especially team sport.

Even the home fans gasped when it was shown on the big screen - says it all really

VAR and the ref both got this absolutely right imo. The ref obviously saw the tackle as he was close by but was watching the move unfold and correctly played advantage as we finished the move with a goal. VAR intervened, as they should where a possible straight red offence has occurred and decided that it was clear and obvious, which the ref then agreed with on viewing the screen.

i also think that this is the way it should be done by showing the incident on the screen in this way everyone in the ground can see exactly what is being discussed between the ref and VAR officials.

I think the biggest slice of irony is the poster who says the following (or paraphrased). 

 

‘We have this every year. Someone banging on about a club being better than us and being the best of the rest. This year it’s Leicester. Last year it was Wolves. Before that it was Watford’ 

 

Thats the ****ing point mate. It’s not Everton challenging. It’s Everton being mediocre again and another club surpassing them
