    Lallana didn't play the ball. He tried to, but he played the man. Kane doesn't have to move out of his way and he's free to get in it.

    that would be true if Kane had stayed still but he didn't instead he moved backwards into Lallana .

    Has anyone mentioned that Adam Lallana doesn't play for Saltypool anymore, so there's no need for their fans to vociferously defend him whenever he clatters people?

    He's allowed to move towards Lallana and get between him and the ball. Someone jumping doesn't change that.
    Lallana initiates contact with his knee.

    Kane broke no rules, it was clever forward play, he had a look and realized Lallana was coming, positioned himself between Lallana and the ball and waited for Lallana to clatter into him. There is nothing in the rules that says Kane can not do what he did, the argument that Kane looks at Lallana and not the ball is nonsense, so what, he is perfectly within his rights to do so.

    There was some diving going on in the game elsewhere however, which is poor to see, both Son and Trossard appeared to dive. I think the players were all watching Match of The Day and saw Mo Salahdive rewarded for his theatrics, and thought they would try the same. Unfortunately, they were not wearing a red shirt and so wasting their time.

    Sucky read Huddlefros post and the match day thread - Kanes dive in the 2nd half has been consistently mentioned and there is a consensus that we don't like it and that he should cut it out. The penalty was not a dive, and to be fair we didn't even appeal for a penalty, VAR changed the refs decision from free kick to penalty and I don't recall there being a crowd of Spurs players around the ref suggesting that the original decision was wrong.

    I'm not gonna lie. I think that's a penalty. Anywhere else on the pitch and it's given as a foul. Lallana jumps into Kane well before he makes contact with the ball. Kane doesn't really do anything apart from look at where Lallana is and then stand his ground.

    Trust me. I hate Spurs (and Kane) more than you. But if that challenge had been done to one of our players, and we didn't get a foul, I'd be quite pissed off.

    Right decision IMO.

    Sucky is a WUM wannabee lightweight. Perhaps Diego can help him here ...

    You're pretty similar, to be honest. Hard to tell the difference most of the time...
