100% Danny Murphy will be on there tonight, the BBC are probably getting a helicopter to fly him in as we speak.I'm going to watch it again on MOTD, but will probably turn off the sound, their interviews and the analysis - just know it's going to be all about them. I know what I saw today, I don't need or want a biased account from pundits who rarely give us credit.
I flagged this straight away. I amazed these ex-footballers missed this point. Kane said Robertson told him it wasn't even a yellow.That's what I think too. Kane clearly went to try and win the ball but caught Robertson. However Robertsons tackle was clearly to just take out Emerson aggressively.
Trouble with pundits is they over analyse everything to the extreme.. especially when it involves a Liverpool player.
Let's not also forget, mentioned in previous posts the tackle by Robertson on Tanganga last season that went unpunished.
It's mad really because one game you get the likes of Neville, Redknapp & Carragher etc moaning about the game going 'sterile' yet when there is a rough tackle where Kane clearly went for the ball they are up in arms about it.I flagged this straight away. I amazed these ex-footballers missed this point. Kane said Robertson told him it wasn't even a foul.
Lots of positives today
Winks fantastic tackle led to our first goal and had a great assist for our second goal, and on top of that . caused their defence all sort of problems with his quick delivery in behind their back four. Defensively also very good.
You're crazy if you don't think Sessengon played well today.
