Re: VAR

Also the impression I have generally is that the supporters of rugby clubs aren’t as partisan as fans of football so rugby players don’t necessarily get as wound up as their counterparts. So there's been no foul or abusive language aimed at refs this season then? Players do it because its accepted ...

Simmops Did I just see Mark Wright from the only way is Essex come on


Dunno how you missed him before he came on. Johnathon Pearce was plugging the BBC programme about him trying to make it as a pro what seemed like every 30 seconds.

Re: VAR

No, as in their feet just happened to be the two bits of body that were the furthest forward (or back from defenders point of view) so were used to decide the offside. As the feet were on the ground it meant it was a lot quicker to draw the lines.

Re: VAR

Think they said the decision could be made quickly because it was both players feet where the lines were drawn not an eyebrow or armpit.

Re: VAR

Bet the asst ref has got a bollocking for turning his back on the ball and sprinting down the touchline. He must have turned before the ball was even kicked as it was obvious from the minute that it left his foot that the ball was heading out of very close to out.

Re: England - the future....

What a touch from Grealish. He's been our best player by a mile. He is different class. What Wilshere could have become. Potentially our best player since Gascoigne. Or at least, the one I most enjoy watching. He had a very good game and no doubt was our best player by far. But the question mark fo...

Re: VAR

Instead of feet, how about hips or torso? And FFS, introduce a "Referee's call". If its not obvious after 20 seconds with a freeze frame then its within the realms of human error. If its not obvious, its not wrong. If cricket can make a decision in a minute with a no ball camera, snickome...

Re: VAR

Just make the decision based on the players feet, ignore players leaning, outstretched arms etc. Still have the lines if needs be but if there's less than 5cm in it give the benefit to the attacker if it wasn't flagged as offside in real time.

Re: VAR

have the FA marked what part of the body you can score with? Was this part closer to the goal than two defenders? Yes, you cannot score with any part of your arm therefore it is impossible for him to be offside You might want to update your FA powerpoint presentation, they've changed that so top of...

6ft Kerplunk I think Pele includes bicycle kick from Escape to Victory in his total.


Should count double tbf, I never thought it would be topped but then along came Yakou at the weekend

Neither as good as Trevor Morley's. FACT.

Maradona for me. I've always liked Argentina. And he played for Napoli. He was riding tackles in the age where you could go out and maim people. Amazing footballer and an absolute twat as well. So much more interesting than Pele. ^ This. One of those people who is a complete bellend but somehow als...

Re: VAR

Thanks for the info on penalties scored this season-it has felt each time when watching that a goal will be scored. Good, that's what penalties are supposed to be (although I'll accept that they get given for the softest of things sometimes and not for nailed on goal scoring opportunities), what we...

Re: Weekend Football

What's going on with Bamford? He's never looked likely to score an absolute bucket load of goals to me but that's what he appears to be doing this season. Fair play to him and I'm sure me slagging him off for years is what's spurred him on.

Re: Changes in Law 2019/2020

4 is a Wenger thing isn't it. Though didn't think he was saying it should only be five minutes from the end. His argument is that you rarely get much of an advantage from throw in your own half. Given the amount of added on time you can get most games will mean that five minutes is at least eight or...
