Re: VAR

One of the worst arguments against VAR is the one about wrong decisions somehow being part of the game, and we'd be robbed of talking points. How does that even work when the biggest talking point about a wrong decision is that fact that the ref got it wrong? VAR should be used for black and white ...

Re: We're ManchesteROFL United, we do what we want

I used to detest Utd. But as I grew up, I realised you had to have a grudging respect for the way they played and the sheer magnificence of Ferguson's achievements. Since he left, with the way their spoilt pompous fans have behaved and the appointment of the utterkunt-in-chief, I'm perfectly happy t...

Re: Starting XI

People getting carried away by Bod scoring a hattrick against League Two opposition :lol: NOPE, but "getting carried away" by 6 goals in 707 minutes on the pitch, maybe? 603 minutes actually, a goal every 100 minutes is a pretty good stat for me. take away the 3 against Stevenage and its ...

Re: VAR

It's not going to be conclusive in ALL cases because some offences are inherently subjective involving things like intent and recklessness. Or incredibly marginal things. And as I said it doesn't give you perfect coverage. But it does give you a second look, multiple angles, freeze frame, slow moti...

Re: Back from the game Stevenage

Gunter's been one of our best players this season (admittedly not a high bar). Watson hasn't played for the first team for a year, and even then only had a few games There's a long way to go to see Watson as a replacement for Gunter. Gunter on the right, and Richards on the left is the way to go at...

Re: Back from the game Stevenage

Just seen the goals. Can we play a fit Watson at RB, or buy a new one and just play Gunter at LB forever more? He's twice the left back he is right back. I thought so the moment I saw him at Leeds. I think we have a decent record with him at left back this season. But what about Omar? Anything that...

Re: CheLOLsea

lols o clock Fantastic. Although I think Willian's yellow should have been a penalty probably. I wouldn't have been surprised to see Morata get a penalty, but it would have been soft as hell and I prefer the yellow card. Two reds are an absolute cherry on top though. Why would you keep diving under...

Re: Rumour - Chris Martin

Get in Martin, bench him while Bod gets 5 starts to prove himself , using Martin as an attacking move on about 20 minutes if necessary, and if we can afford Yann on the bench too, he can be the defensive option if we're under the cosh and could use his defensive qualities and nous. If Bod doesn't pe...

Re: Starting XI

Given Swift's injury, Kelly's form and the problems we have with goals scored at both ends, I'd say the obvious midfield is Bacuna, Edwards, Evans. All will get stuck in. All can chip in with goals, all can carry the ball forward and none have a tendency to over-complicate and slow down play. It's a...
