Re: England’s World Cup Finals 2018

Yeah, that's my point. VAR is meant to stop the officials from missing stuff so teams aren't hard done by, it's still happening except now we've got annoying breaks in play to go with it. Have we had an "annoying break" yet where a decision has not been correct after it? Not seen every ga...

Re: England’s World Cup Finals 2018

The problem with VAR at this World Cup has been it not being used when it should have been, not in the use of it when it has. The problem with VAR (which overall has been used well in this WC) is that it all it does is move the potential for error from the ref on the pitch to the ref in Moscow. Nob...

odd law that I have never heard of, and still part of me doubts. But looks amusing as they do it anyway https://twitter.com/BantsFootballFC/status/1008647459445313536?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw&ref_url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.bigsoccer.com%2Fthreads%2Fhacking-vodka-and-dashboard-cams-fifa-world-cup-russia-20...

Re: Ingerlund Vs Tunisia

So overall, the right result and great for England to be up and running after game 1. With Panama next, England should be into the knockout stages with a game to spare. Then a case of if they finish first or second. Following the Germany result, if they go on to finish 2nd then there could be an arg...

Re: England’s World Cup Finals 2018

Get carried away in every good place you find yourself in. Let your mind soar and your heart race. England will win this World Cup. And until they don’t in 10 days time I’m gonna enjoy it. I love supporting England. Right up until they kick a ball. And fair play to those lads losing their minds in ...

Re: World Cup 2026

So with three-team groups, and two teams out of each group going through, FIFA are going to need to do something to stop a Germany v Austria situation arising. The current four-team groups mean they can just have the final games for all group members kicking off at the same time, but this is obviou...

Re: Fixtures

Are Birmingham the most northern side in the southern half of the draw? I would never remotely consider them a southern team but I suppose it just shows how many more northern teams there are in the football league. The champ alone is about 75% northern. Split in the draw was 15 Champ clubs in the ...

Re: Generic clubs in financial crisis Thread

My understanding is that the Mbappe numbers are already factored in (part of the argument is that PSG wanted them to count from this summer but UEFA say they could from last summer) so it really is just €60M more. They also have to make up that €60M shortfall by June 30th this year so maybe they wi...

Re: Generic clubs in financial crisis Thread

PSG just ordered to sell €60M of player more this summer than they sign (which they likely would have done anyway as they have a lot to offload) and they are good with FFP :? Well, clubs will now bid less for players than they would otherwise plus really hamstrings them on sales. If it is they have...

Tough start there for the new Arsenal manager. Man City at H followed by Chelsea away. Could easily be 0pts from 6 to start.

It has just been awarded to the North Americans. Wise move and it means lots of evening games which is good.

Jolen Lopetegui named as Real Madrid manager with plan to take over after the World Cup. Spanish FA understandably furious as he had recently signed a new 2 year deal and the SFA only found out he had taken the Real job 5 mins before it went public. Reports coming out that he has now been fired by S...
