That's a shame, JM was one of the few defending us, the other week.

Jeremy Vine has tweeted that his daughter cannot get over the fact that a West Ham fan offered out a police horse after the game.
Not seen a report of this anywhere or is it anecdotal?
Either way his followers have reacted with typical outrage.

I'll bet some on here would have a different opinion on the "penalty" had we lost. We got an unexpected point so hey ho what did it matter!!! :wink:

Obviously it would have been nice, had the penalty been given, but I don't think people's opinions would have changed due to the result, by the letter of the law it was a foul, and therefore a pen, but from the refs view it looked like Kante touched the ball away.

Anyway we should all be used to not having decisions going our way by now.

In fairness, a police horse hit me on top of my head outside Tottenham once, if it wasn't so big I would have offered it out as well. I was more upset with the OB on the horse, who had a smirk as I yelped like a little girl after horse nutted me.

Refs give dodgy penalties every week, never mind genuine ones that are 'hard to give'. We don't usually get the rub of the green, and I know that sounds paranoid. We didn't get the decision and none of us are surprised....but Chelski would have done, as would le arse, and the mancs/scousers. Not a fact, but a pretty good gut feeling.

If you did yelp like a little girl, no one would blame you, C.
Having a horse's head come down on top of your head is perhaps one of the best definitions of being pole-axed, that there is.
Avoid at all costs.
