I was sat in East stand level 3 section J and it looked like a great tackle from our angle. From that angle it looks worse but he still got the ball, which is what the ref will have been looking at. I love De Jong. I just hope he's not going to get castigated as a thuggish player because he is actually technically excellent.

Although he caught the ball first (Well he would hes a fine player) i think its a poor, clumsey tackle from such a great player.

There was nothing wrong with the tackle its just a shame Hatem Ben Arfa is going to be out of action for some time to come. And then there's the witch hunt which is bound to follow and no doubt the FA will be issuing a 5 match ban for poor old Nigel.

Nigel DeJong was the victim of a lot of ill will on 606 last night, with surprisingly little of it coming from Newcastle fans - the Witchfinder general was of course the unbiased Alan Green, with several Tottingham and rags fans leading the torch-bearing procession. Most would agree that it was an horrific accident, but the tackle was fair, as witnessed by the referee not even awarding a foul - Chris Hughton agrees there was no malice in it, so can that be the end of it? I suspect not, and DeJong will get grief off of referees from now until the end of eternity. Public enemy number 1 for a hard but fair challenge, yet the media fawn over Paul Scholes and his 3 malicious fouls per game - go figure!

Regardless of him winning the ball - De Jong is a dirty player and should have been sent off - you need to understand that football is going away from the physical side and players like De Jong dont get that - as noted from his stupid tackles in the World Cup - he is rubbish, over priced and only lunges in like that because he is cack technically !!

Superyiddo - we have DeJong (who I watch every week - and he rarely misses, mistimes or otherwise fouls his players), you have Palacios. Nuff said.

Scholes has never snapped anyones leg in half or kung foo kicked anyone in the chest !! And it should be really interesting to see how your club is going to be run when the new finance rules come in to effect - cant have more than £49mil in loses !! ha ha Man City - the joke of English football!!!

De Jong is NOT a dirty player. He doesn't mess about i'll give you that but he's not dirty. I'll give you the World Cup final tackle and yes, he should have seen red for that, but yesterday's incident - there was no malice or intent from what I can see.
