Can't defend Balotelli's actions - a petulant stamp and he was lucky to stay on. It will be no consolation to Spurs, we got the rough end of a very rough stick with Kompany's sending off, so we'll take the rough with the smooth. If Balotelli gets a ban, you'll hear no complaints from me.

Considering Spurs have supposedly got the best midfield in the league, I thought they were sadly lacking in that department today. Nasri, Silva, Milner and Barry all had great games. Spurs defence was generally good and Bale and Defoe took their goals very well, but Dzeko should have buried his chance.

Savic made two horrendous errors, one of which led to the goal, which was a shame because he played very well in the first half, keeping Defoe quiet. Still he's young and he needs a good few games to get acclimatised.
That's some in depth analysis from someone who actually goes the game. Well done!

Wasn't too clever either. It's disappointing that with the obvious qualities of the team that our players haveto resort to antic like that.

Sorry to disappoint you, but it's an analysis from somehow who watches the games on his daughter's iPod Touch! But thanks all the same.

Citysmith, hope you enjoyed the game from the commentary position, it was a cracking game to get to commentate on. Have you got a link to the highlights as usual?

EDIT - Just found and watched the highlights - "Have that Chas & Dave" Well done, very entertaining.

Consider your analysis worthless now.

(Although in spite of how you watched it, I think it was spot on).

Cheers. I reckon you see some things at a match that you wouldn't see on TV, but TV does give you a "generals" view of the [battle]field. By the way, I was hoping your lot would slip up yesterday but you managed to pull it off again. Like I said weeks ago, two horse race and has been for months.

One horse & a camel. The camel being a bit of a joke in a horse race.

Absolutely, it's swings and roundabouts. Can't beat going to the game though.

They played a clip of citysmith's commentary on XFM Manchester this morning... and compared it to someone being hit by lightning.

We were bloody lucky yesterday. a much needed 3 points though.

Having looked at the replay Ballotelli did seem to stamp a bit, but strangely the room full of United supporters I saw it with are adamant there was no stamp, just a balance issue.

Looks like the Ref saw it though so He may be ok.

If it was a stamp, It was no where near as blatant as Huddlestone last year ( notice who the ref was! ) http://www.epltalk.com/huddlestone-e...v-replay-26453

Some players are just a bit stampy. It's the way the modern game is now. You just need to accept it or give up watching football.

Yes, a bit. at most moved his foot down a bit quicker than normal, its the angle thats more of an issue than the force. a full on stamp is raising foot and bringing it down full force,

Huth did it a few year back into the middle of someone's chest but I cant seem to find it on youtube.

Whats your opinon on the huddleston one I posted the link to?

The Huth one might have the the Alan Sheerer Ball stamp. unless he did it again to someone as I was sure there was a chest stamp somewhere.

I criticised them when they happened - It's not acceptable for Tom or any Spurs player to behave like that. Quite what relevance they have to what happened this weekend is not apparent.

The relevance was to do with the fact he got away with it and im sure Balotelli will be investigated by the FA for his stamp.

Also another point to just how crap Chris Foy is.

Edit: Fair play on criticising it, it needs to stop.

The ref saw it and deemed it not worthy of a booking.

Yesterday there were two unpunished cowardly assaults which should have been red cards and were not punished at all. You then won the game. I'm not sure what you have to complain about.

Eh? Who's complaining? Im commenting on an incident and showing examples of other similar incidents to try to work out what may/may not happen.

Going by the sky footage the ref saw this one too.

He didn't see it. He looked away and was turning back as it happened.

After the United match Sky showed it again a few times and showed the ref acknowledging the incident, As the sky pundits ( well Neville ) said, the ref saw it but he may not have seen the full severity of it.

Edit: How long does it take the FA to normally process incidents like this?
