Nothing in football annoys me more than when a challenge which clearly constitutes serious foul play is not punished with a dismissal. It's worse than diving, it's worse than the waving the imaginary card thing, it's worse than incorrect offside calls.

At the risk of repeating myself, one of the reasons referees keep holding back the red cards is that the 'red cards are bad' culture that prevails in the media has not been challenged by Keith Hackett. Thus, we have referees with a mindset in which they hope they don't have a red card in their game, and this results in them not seeing challenges for what they are. Ashley Cole's challenge is just the latest in a long list of incidents this season where serious foul play has not been punished with a dismissal.

What makes this matter all the more frustrating, is the public condemnation of Martin Taylor for that challenge on Eduardo, when last night we saw an equally horrendous challenge that was not followed by a red card, collective public outrage, calls for the perpetrator to never play football again, or a comment from Sepp Blatter. All because it wasn't followed by a nasty injury.

I like Spurs, even after being abused while waiting in the endless queue for the train. I don't know why. It might be the nice simplicity of the kit, and I've always liked the badge. Then there was the Ardiles & Hoddle factor when I was first getting into football. Hmm. Carry on.

Bloody hell, just seen the tackle, that is absolutely dreadful. Cole is a disgrace.

I've been among matchday crowds of Arsenal, Spurs and Chelsea fans in my time in London, and the Chelsea fans were comfortably the most unpleasant of the lot.

You say that like The Rock's a bad thing.

There's fantastic picture of Woodgate heading his goal in The Times today. He's about four feet above everyone else; it's as though rugby's lineout lifting rules have suddenly entered football but only Spurs have noticed.

He doesn't mean the "actor" The Rock but the film 'The Rock' starring Sean Connery and Nicholas Cage.

From the 20 minutes I saw at the end of last night it's possibly Cage's most annoying role, how can he be so good in 'Con Air' and yet so poor elsewhere.

TV's 'Mr P'

Why do people like Tottenham? They're such a bunch of loathsome hooligan pricks and they get absolutely no shit about it whatsoever.
This 'gem' was posted just half an hour after that snivelling little gimp shrew Ashley Cole almost ended Hutton's career - and saw nothing but a yellow card. OTF myopia at its worst.

Paxton Sprout

I assumed the 'loathsome hooligan pricks' referred to our support. Which is even more laughable coming from chelsea.

Right, Ashley Cole's tackle was horrible and deserved a red card. He is also a little turd, I don't like him and never have.

Your support contains one of the largest and most loathesome collection of organised hooligans in the country. On top of that in the last few years there have been songs about lynching Sol Campbell and how Adebyor's dad is a cannibal, sung by a large minority of the ground. Spurs' support gets absolutely no shit about it whatsoever and it fucks me off.

Slag off the lunatics that would be horrible bastards to away fans at Chelsea all you like, but the days where we were the vanguard for football violence has long gone and Tottenham have taken their place.

And I still stay The Rock the film is a great and mindless bit of entertainment, especially if you've drunk a few beers.

You sir, are a cunt. A cunt's cunt.

Strange days indeed when one finds oneself agreeing with much of what's said on the Comments section of a Daily Mail article.

You have to love the post that claimed Terry was setting a bad example.


That's Footballers and the inference that they should either be setting a good example, or that people actually copy their example.
Not sure which is the more preposterous notion.

Liquidator, just to let you know there has been information from THFC saying that they've had alot of complaints from Spurs fans about the Adebayour song and they will be kicking people out of the ground for it. They also said they won't be tolerating any abuse about Judas either (although they didn't say which songs were okay and which weren't) when Portsmouth visit this weekend.

With this post, I'm not sticking up for any people who sing these songs (because I don't like them either) but it is being recognised by the club.

I didn't go to the match yesterday so don't know if the Adebayour song was sung at all but we'll see on Saturday if they enforce the Judas bit.

The first time I heard the Adebayour song was away in Prague and it was very loud. I think it's gotten a fair bit quieter since then but it seems that other fans (not just THFC ones) have taken it on board, which is a real shame.

Talking of crap songs, I hate it when we sing 'stand up if you hate Arsenal', when we aren't playing them. What is the point? We should be getting behind our own players or at least giving the current opposition some grief, not worrying about the shower of shoite down the road.

I think he's more annoyed about the fact that it doens't get mentioned in the press at all.

They'd be topical though. Actually, seasonal would be more accurate, wouldn't it?

I do have some sympathy with Liq on this. Spurs' ground probably generates the best atmosphere in London these days, and I'm probably mates (outside of Orient) with more Spurs fans than of any other team, but Spurs' sizeable hooligan element does seem to be subject to some kind of omerta. If they weren't in the Premier League I suspect we'd hear a lot more about that side of the club.

Liquidator - no one in his right mind likes racism or indeed hooligan behaviour in general. If, as morgan suggests, the powers that be are trying to kill this off, then let's hope that this is the case, eh?

If, on the other hand, you're trying to suggest that this behaviour is *peculiar* to Tottenham just because you happen to support another London club, then you're puddled, mate. And please don't be tarring us all with a brush you should perhaps be reserving for racist/thug fans from all clubs.
