Well done Son for doing to Man Utd what they have been doing for years
By Bruce Grove -

Son Heung-min was fouled by Scott McTominay yesterday, that is a cold hard fact and the referee was 100% correct to disallow the goal.

To not do so would then send the message that it is ok to put your hands on an opposing players face, it is not and all the whining in the world from United fans will not change that.

Did Son milk it? Of course, he did, just as every professional footballer does when they are fouled.

The thing is this though, Man Utd have been the absolute worse for conning referees and milking fouls and it is about time that their opponents do to them what they have been doing for decades.

Bruno Fernandes is a notorious diver or cheat, brand it as you see fit, remember, this is a player that stamped on an opponents foot and fell down and was awarded a penalty.

Just yesterday Bruno elbowed Serge Aurier in the face and Marcus Rashford went down clutching his face even though he was touched on his chest.

When United stop conning the refs and cheating for penalties then they may have the right to complain when they are on the receiving end but if there is one club that has no right to ever complain, it is United, they are the masters of the con, always have been and always will be, it is in their DNA.

If McTominay had handed off Son on the chest, no foul, but he has flicked him in the face. That is a foul. Pundits shouting about ‘accidental’ are not understanding the law. A foul is a foul. Did it affect the scoring of the goal? No, but it was a foul and the referee missed it.

Son rolling around like an eejit was embarrassing. Although OGS can’t say anything about that, look at Fernandes.

Pogba needed a red too for his leading arm into Aurier. That was naughty.

When H mentioned a disallowed goal I didn’t quite cotton on, I thought Son had a goal ruled out as I didn’t see it. Another VAR joke, and it transpires it should av been 4-1…. Embarrassing all round. The Fergie days of bias are gone, they’ve swanned off into the sunset with their trophys. Even ref assisted this team are awful. They gave us till xmas I spose….

I don’t think it was a foul,however in today’s sanitised game football is virtually non contact.What i will say though is it was an innoculous flick of the hand,but if it cut across the eye that would hurt.I can understand why Son then reacted in the manner that he did.

Son rightly reacted to being hit in the face, Rashford went down clutching his face when there was no contact. Good journalism should have followed up and asked Ole about that. Instead his inflammatory remarks afterwards only fuelled the flames of the online abuse that followed and it wasn’t Spurs supporters so call them out, name them and then ban them. The hypocrisy of it all astounds me.

Agree totally, but…

Anyone notice that weird reaction by Son to Mouriniho at the end of the match? He appeared to turn away from him rather sharply.

Then there was the post match interview where he was virtually in tears. Bizarre.

Just wonder if Mourinho told his players to milk it and subsequently Son, who has been taught to play to the highest morals was left feeling ashamed.

Yes I noticed that.Also Mourinho seemed far more expansive in his greetings towards the Utd. players except perhaps for Shaw.I can’t help feel the Spurs players will have also noticed that.

This really is a broken relationship and if Kane’s mind was not made up before yesterday’s performance it almost certainly is now.
