in cricket, if a fielder catches a bump ball, the umpires rely on his integrity to say if he knew it bounced or not ? roy knew it'd crossed the line, christ 67,000 people plus alex knew it was in. the linesman only had to look at around 2000 people behind big roy to know it'd gone in !!! the silence, was deafening !!

shows football is not a sport of honour or integrity !

i've never liked Carroll - bad player, and apparently a total t*t of a person. Now i see why. I hope he doesnt sleep well tonight.

But all in all a win would have been harsh on Utd - but also our workrate deserved something. I would have taken 0-0 before the game! What a great signing Robinson was - complete contrast to the human waste at the other end....

First i can say is we defended like true title contenders. well done lads. secondly that mistake is something that would of happened 30 yrs ago. how can officials make such a blunder? if we where playing a mid to lower table club its a goal but as ive come to see the top 3 (man U, Arsenal and chelsea) get all the calls and the other teams around them have to suffer.

Yet again, Dubious decisions going the way of the 'big' clubs. Absolute Travesty¬!

Also... If wayne rooney can be penilised and banned for 3 matches a whole 24hrs after a stupidly minor squirmish with another player, why cant they correct the score a whole 24hrs later when obvious miscarrage of justice has accured.

Wot a JOKE!!!!

What on earth was all that about? Had that been United from the half way line, then it would have stood. Its a disgrace and until something is done with refs helping big clubs then this sort of thing will continue.

The goalie 'caught' the ball on the line - anything behind him is therefore over it. It doesnt take Einstein to work that out! Maybe it takes a Man Utd fan to get it wrong though.

Laughable, we beat them on the day, my only consolation is .... if the game was called a void and we played them again up there .. I'd take a point. COME ON YOU SPURS!

agree on the integrity. In this day and age we dont see such acts - its a mercenery sport... one governed by money, no longer the passion of the fans.

But on the flip side - what goes around comes around - we'll have a similar decision go for us before the season is out

No visiting team ever gets decisions like penalties at Ole Trashford, but that is rediculous. Carroll should be banned for blatantly deceiving officials and perverting result. If FA can view video footage of dubious booking and sendings off, why not review this, and rightfully award the 3 points! There is no point in playing the nations game with Teams like man utd getting away with this... What else to you have to do win a game. Ref should be struck off!

Its at Old Traffprd...what do you expect King Ledley was right when he said people say things about when you go to grounds like that...they cheat and love it...but one good thing (i think its good) you can expect Carrol to be on the transfer list tomorrow morning

Well done Jol. What a star, i was ranting but he came over in his post match interview well on top. As did Robbo and the King. Congrats to the travelling fans too ... they ALL did us proud. It's great to be a Spurs fan once again.

Fergie goes on about a penalty, at that time Utd should have been kicking off and then they wouldn't have been anywhere near the penalty box! Great performance from Spurs and how they stayed so calm during post match interviews I will never know. We were robbed but things are looking up.

Are footy officials made to have eye tests as part of their training / on going assessments - if not I have some v strong glasses that I can lend the ones at this game. Could someone also explain why the lineman looked like he was more worried about his feet than what the ball was doing while sprinting up the line, or is he trying to get into the next olympic team, I am sure that some of the GB top sprinters would have been over joyed starting a race like that.
Lots of expletives later the only good thing that came out of today was watching some of the gooners going home looking like they had lost :-) must have been a real good performance I dont think.

Can the FA not look at "the video evidence" and award Spurs the 3 points? It was so near the end of the game it wouldn't of made a difference to the result. If not they should at least look at Carrolls' behaviour, he knew it was a goal, similarly they should look at the way Roy Keane tried to kick Marney in the head while he was stepping over him after a tackle. In my opinion both were worse than Rooneys slap in the face that he got a ban for the other day. As for Fergies penalty appeal ... he's having a laugh. Read his autobiography, but don't buy it!

Great lob by Mendes that clearly went over the line. Very Nayim like and an absolutely sublime effort. It’s a real shame the linesman did not see it as a goal - he needs to stop eating all the pies!! The look on Carrol’s face at the time was very sheepish and with good reason. Failure to award us a goal has robbed us of our first victory at Old Trafford for 16 years.

The FA regularly use video evidence for disciplinary reasons, so how about they use video evidence to award us the three points!!

Not sure about awarding us the 3 points - nice thought but it will never happen. What upsets me the most is thinking how those 2 'lost' points will affect us later in the season. Normally when we finish in our usual mid table spot we are a point or two off 2 or 3 places above us - not only does that cost us alot of money but if we keep playing like we have been, then those 2 points could cost us when it comes down to European qualification. The players and the Managers response has been superb - let the media cry about it whilst we look philisophical. It'll do us more favours. Anyway, thought we defended fantastically tonight. As usual King and Robbo were superb. Things are looking good. Martin Jol, I salute you!

Lewis, Clattenburg. You owe us. No doubt we'll have you again this season. However, lets not forget a tremendous effort by the lads. I'd have taken a point before the game. If there is a slight critisism, I thought we gave away the ball a bit too much but having said that I'm full of hope and confidence for the future. We have an improving squad who, at last, want to play for the shirt and our great club!

The point about the goal standing if it had been at the other end is good apart from one small detail... Robbo wouldn't have dropped it

i cant believe it was given. if this was one of the top three there would have been no question of the goal being given. but it was quite refreshing to see martin jols face, comapred to alex ferguson who looked like he was gonna blow his top! and everyone's even talking about it in the middle east - everyone ive talked to says the same thing, its definitely time to bring in video replays. i've always been against it, but when it happens to your team...

If the FA can charge a player for foul play after a game and after reviewing an incident on video what is the problem with resolving other refereeing errors - e.g. Goals that were at least a metre over the line?

I see comments across different sites calling for the points to be awarded to Spurs. The video panel is used to ban players like in the case of Rooney missing the game. There is no reason why the FA can't stand up and be counted and make a decision. Man U fans may complain but I can't see anyone else complaining. The FA should at least make the Ref release a statement over the incident, as this is one of the worst decisions of all time. As even Ferguson has come out and said that he could see the ball cross the line and he was further away then both linesman and the Ref. I’m just off to email the FA because if they get enough emails from disgruntle fans they may just make a statement for a change and not just hide away and wait for things to blow over. To finish well done the lads, this was well earned point, the whole team is playing and fighting for each other.
