Taking into account all the Gouffran was/wasnt impeding Hart/there were/werent three or four offside etc arguments every single ex player/pundit/ref etc who has wanted to have a say has said it was a goal in the current laws of the game. End of story!

Mbiwa was very lucky not to get a straight red, he nibbled then bit hard and deserved to go.

Cabaye was very lucky not to get a second yellow for his push/lunge on the touch line taking the player out.

Personally I think we just about deserved a point but they did have a couple of excellent chances in the second to kill it before they caught us chasing the game.

Onwards and upwards. Howay the Lads.

agree about mbiwa. was lucky to escape a straight red

but people keep going on about cabayes "2nd yellow" he probably wouldn't have got the 1st if the "incidents" hadn't happened. was't his 1st given for continuing to gob off to the ref ?

Aye it was. He needs to leave the mouthing off to his Captain. Refs might think twice with Tiote barking at them XD

The referee by his blatant mistake caused a hostile playing environment. Players were angry and frustrated, hence Cabaye's yellow card and the tackle on Nasri.

On a positive side, we certainly were as good if not better than what is probably the best team in the premiership.

The difference this season is we are competing and doing well against the better teams.

It's a long haul but we do seem to be going in the right direction!
