He stood on his foot though doesn’t matter if it’s deliberate.

But more importantly, who the fuck is James Tarkowski? I’ve literally never heard of him.

It does really, if someone sticks their foot under yours it can't be a foul. A foul has to be deliberate or reckless, I don't think it was either really. Either way, it was one of those marginal calls where VAR will not provide certainly that people supposedly crave. And I've never heard of James Tarkowski either.

you can have accidental foul play. A clumsy tackle etc. Agree that this is where football is going to be a bit different than other sports, there are a lot of decisions that people will disagree with that are down to interpretation. However there are loads of those anyway and this should eradicate the ‘howler’ (in theory).

Careless can be enough to call a foul. If Chiesa is genuinely only stopped by Tarkowski standing on his foot then it's undoubtedly a foul IMO.

Thing is Chiesa had already started his dive having seen someone else's challenge coming in. Unfortunately just like with about half a dozen Spurs cons it has done the job.

watched the second half and it finished 6-1. Although Messi wasn't playing Spain looked superb, Costa fit and firing up front giving them the balance they lacked previously. Isco absolute class in midfield.

7/1 for the WC - decent odds.

Saw most of Germany vs Brazil - no Neymar but Brazil also looked v good, Germany lacking a top striker.

This story is fucking disgraceful. Works out around £5m a season which is well within their financial capability to pay themselves. I bet a threat of a point deduction would be got them to beef up security out of their own pocket

A lot of people got the hump with West Ham getting the stadium on the cheap, but the deal has been a disaster for pretty much everyone involved.

It's a complete mess and West Ham are stuck with a stadium they don't own and which is not fit for purpose. They've lost their identity, the past belongs to a time that already seems from a bygone age, and the future is really bleak.

They've gone from having a truly unique and passionate identity almost to MK Dons. A complete fuck up and it's no wonder the fans are dismayed.

Quite sad really that a corner of British football culture is gone forever in the name of incompetence, making a quick buck, and trying to crowbar a square peg into an oval hole.

Aye, i was kind of hoping the other day that Spurs gave a bigger brown envelope to get that stadium in the end that a miserly club like West Ham. It's just not a football stadium and shouldn't be one.

I think Spurs would have torn it down and started again, but that wasn't within the rules of tender. West Ham wanted to make a fist of it and it's kinda gone as predicted.

Yeah I get all that.

We hate lots of teams and aspects of football, but when something like this happens, whatever the owners deserve is not so important.

H&G nearly killed our club. Did we deserve that fate? No. We're just supporting a football team and hope that those entrusted with running it at least competent.

So as much as we might hate West Ham or not, their failure is a partly a failure on what we all are in this for.

Rivalry.

I don't hate West Ham and their fans are pretty genuine but it's great watching other teams in dire straits. The bigger the team the funnier it is. I'll enjoy watching Trevor Brooking and Shane Ritchie cry. They'll possibly be replaced by Wolves or Fulham in the premier league. Wolves have far more history than WHU and Fulham are a well run family club with a neutral ground that never sees crowd trouble. WHU?

Can't wait to read more fawning articles about Southampton's 'system' and how they're able to continually sell their best players and replace them with good if not better, younger players.

Pawson is a disease on this sport. Hopefully some lunatic Stoke fans give him a pasting after the game and he's scared to ever officiate again.

He’s absolutely awful. He looks like he should be one of the better refs (youngish, fairly slim/athletic) but he’s the worst of the lot.

Not sure about that to be honest given the height it dropped from. It's central but I doubt he could get to it.......Might be interesting to see a side replay.
Could have made an effort granted.

Edit: Nah.....He ain't getting to that. Wouldn't even blame Mig for something like that.

It's interesting though, two top teams with supposedly top keepers, two pieces of goalkeeping that some of our fans would over-react to and demand a new keeper in the summer.
