We don’t understand what happened at the end of today’s game…
Firstly, John Moss refused to overall his decision to award Spurs a penalty, despite his assistant telling him Harry Kane was offside (which he was).
Then, he decided not to give a penalty for Erik Lamela’s dive, before overruling the decision on the advice of his assistant.
It wasn’t a penalty.
This is the angle that the assistant saw. But from much further away. How is he overruling that. https://t.co/xgemyTVnWh

The reaction online was furious. Moss did everything he can in the second half to rob us off three points. In the end, he achieved it.
The linesman fist-pumped giving away the penalty, Lemela clearly dived in the replays, and John Moss is utterly spineless.
Pretend you're a decent governing body & deal with that @FA.

I don’t wish for bad things to any human being but I am hoping for something really bad to John Moss. The fucking fat disgrace of a human being.

First one: Ref says penalty, assistant says offside. Penalty given
Second one: Ref says no penalty, assistant says penalty. Penalty given
Simply put, if a fly bit a Spurs player inside our box, it's a penalty
John Moss is a fucking twat

1st pen: John Moss didn't seem to understand the off-side rule. Mishit (as opposed to deliberate pass) from Lovren renders Kane offside. 2nd pen: no choice but to give it. brave from assistant ref.

Brilliant that John Moss ignores the linesman’s advice not to give a penalty – and then takes the advice of the linesman to give a last minute penalty, after so clearly denying one.

So John Moss refused to listen to the linesman after the first incident but was quick to listen to him for the second one. What a twat

John Moss is also a disgrace of a referee. Completely incapable of controlling games. Decides no penalty then let’s the linesman who has a worse view to change his mind. Unreal

John Moss and his assistants are a complete joke and an embarrassment to other officials
