Re: One for HNA? refs - offside or not?

Something which sounds very similar just occurred for the 5th goal in the Brazil v Australia WWC game. Ball pumped forward. Aus striker in offside position. 2 Brazil defenders in attendance, One further away from striker goes for header but knocks in past her own keeper from 12 yards. Original decis...

Re: Nations League & Friendlies

The France v Norway WWC VAR penalty was very iffy if you ask me.
Original thought that the VAR was for a possible red for the two-footed both feet off the ground challenge by the France player.

Re: The womens world cup

All the 2019 women's WC games are live on BBC.

Just flicked over to Germany v China during the interval of England v Bangladesh.

Re: Next Season's Squad.

I don't think there's any reason to fret just yet. Most clubs still haven't started their business and the only newsworthy transfer - excluding pre-arranged ones - has been Jovic to Madrid. All business done before the start of July seems completely unrealistic on Gomes' part (the start of August m...

Re: Rumour - Matt Clarke

NewCorkSeth I didnt see anyone complaining kn the Hiram Boateng thread. But I suppose a league 2 player is going to be better known than a league 1 player.


Perhaps because there was a youtube link in the OP for that one.....

Re: 18/19 End of Season Awards

I think GOTS can be split into the actually strike itself but also the context of the game. For example, Ejaria’s goal vs Rotherham was a massive goal in the context of things, as well as being a really nice team move. Same with rino at Norwich. In the context of things, Loader’s goal against Boro ...

If City get a ban it won't be for next season.

Re: The Forest is Green!

FGR are a poor side. Total failure to have a go and take the game to Tranmere. Tranmere far better over the two legs. At least Newport will give Tranmere more of a game. You obviously were not watching the game. Two stupid red cards lost the game over two legs plus a blatent penalty denied. We shou...
