Tottenham should forget about the Nani stunt. It was unfair, and done by a great player for a great team. Unfortantly the same player has a lack of brain, thats why Nani does things like that. Same league as Ronaldo.

I'm guessing the referee thought both balanced each other out so waved play on. Just unlucky the golakeeper wasnt paying attention

Redknapp needs to move on. He has complained about this enough already. He has admitted himself that tottehham would have lost, he's just looking for a scapegoat.
