Harry Kane - blatant dive in the first half. Wasn’t touched and went down holding his shin to cheat a penalty. Var even checked it to confirm there was no contact. I know pretty much every big team has at least one or two culprits but Tottenham fans are you not really embarrassed by this?

Var never said there was no contact. The replays didn’t show there was no contact. They just decided it wasn’t enough for a penalty. How many strikers are there that don’t make the most of contact in the box?

Yes, as a Spurs fan. Are you going to tell me that Salah, Mane, Vardy et al are not equally guilty? Nothing will change until the referees clamp down consistently. Personally, I think there should be a 'sin bin' (15 or 20 mins) for simulation. That would kill it dead within 1 season.

Every team doing it so don't get so precious. This originated as a continental disease or as they see it a "skill" so let them lead the way in penalising play acting with a red.

My sympathy for cheating left after years of seeing sides like Arsenal and United get away with horror. Still recall Mendes' goal disallowed against Carroll. Also people forget how big a cheat Henry was. Remember his basketball handling to cheat and score against Ireland to put France in the world cup? Apparently this is "winning mentality".

No, because every team has at least one or two culprits, as you said yourself. I don’t like it, but sadly, that’s the way the game will stay, because neither FIFA, UEFA nor the FA want to do anything about it.

who do you support? He went down under minimal contact. It wasn't enough for him to fall the way he did or hold his shin but show me a striker in the prem or any league who doesn't. What I'm more embarrassed about is the opposing teams singling out of Kane. Get over it.

Kane dives in injury time to win a free kick, and Hoddle says “that was clever”. How biased is that?
It is cheating mate. No two ways about it
Lucky spuds (only 2 shots on target against poor opposition!)

I thought the ref was good on Kane’s diving today. Didn’t award him a penalty, VAR got that one right. That one at the end Reed clipped him, although Kane made the most of it to waste time which most Orem footballers would do in that situation.

Well, we won, and I’m obviously very happy about that. But what a ridiculous decision for Fulham’s goal, which frankly, you couldn’t say they didn’t deserve.

Wish Fulham luck for the rest of the season. You battle hard and deserve to retain your place.

As for us, it’s a lucky day and we keep the pressure on the top 4.

Agreed. We were so much better off in the first half playing on the front foot. Why o why we can’t do that for 90 mins is beyond me.

Poch got them doing it, so the buck stops with JM for me. When will he realise attack is our best form of defence? We don’t have the back four to soak up constant pressure.

We got lucky today.

It's not VAR itself, but the way it is being applied. The handball decision would not have been given like that 10 years ago, VAR or not. There were some pretty awful decision being made prior to VAR and some key incidents missed altogether. I thought that VAR was used quite well in the 2018 World Cup. With people like Mike Riley and the poor refereeing standards here we have ended up with this...

The sad irony is, if Lemina had his arm in an “unnatural position” away from his body, it would’ve struck his body and fallen to the exact same place. VAR got this one wrong and the ref should’ve taken a peek at the monitor (or used common sense).

Good to see Bale picking up some form, needs to do it against Top 6 sides though.

I like Parker, real hard working Midfielder back in the day. Classic Chelsea signing too, whereby he warrants the transfer based on his performances but is only a squad player because of their talented squads. Loved him at Newcastle and Spurs too. Just seems like an honest bloke, refreshing. Hope Fulham survive.

As a Spurs fan, we we're extremely lucky. Fulham should not have had the goal disallowed but take the 3 points and leave quickly by the back door.

Yes they should - it’s harsh... very harsh but the rule is very, very clear. If it hits any part of the arm, accidental or otherwise, and it leads to a goal then it’s a free kick.

I mean the rule is also very clear that the keeper can only hold the ball for 6 seconds but VAR didn't award Fulham a free kick when Lloris did it late on because apparently you are allowed to use common sense when it benefits big teams...

Kane dives in injury time to win a free kick, and Hoddle says “that was clever”. How biased is that?

You’ve got to feel for Fulham, where are players meant to put their arms? It was by his side so are footballers meant to take their arms off before playing now? Come on VAR & those behind it, get to grips with it before you do, really kill football.

I gave up on football when the penalty was given in the Champions Cup Final, awarding Liverpool the cup. That was after Danny Rose was accused of making himself big when lying on the ground in the semi final. Back in the day it was 'hand to ball' or ball to hand' and that seemed to work. Remember the penalty Newcastle got when it hit Dier who was facing the other way. The game is a joke.

Not clueless my friend. I have an opinion. Like I said to the gentleman before, the rule is there and the goal was rightly disallowed but it feels a harsh rule at best. That saying, it benefited spurs tonight so swings and roundabouts. I can see why Fulham fans are annoyed. Maybe dont be so hostile.
