Re: VAR

URZZZZ Can someone explain how Everton didn't get a penalty today when Alli handballed it? Thanks


No.i can’t.


I thought it came off an Everton arm before it hit the upraised arm of Dele Alli. VAR is shit, but the rule change meaning that handball by an attacker doesn't have to be deliberate is worse.

Re: BFTG Millwall

It seemed very normal. We had the better players and played better than Milwall so we won the game. Is that Bowen's influence? Just making the game seem sensible again. Things like playing your best midfielder and making sure you have enough defenders were beyond his more enigmatic predecessor. Rafa...

Could be 1-0 down. The pen was a red card as well, unless they have oxf*rd up the rules on that as well.

Re: BFTG Preston (H)

It was a good win, especially as we made Preston look pretty dreadful. The best bits were when we passed the ball, like Gomez would have wanted, and the worst bits were Bowen's clueless goal kicks where everybody crowded over to the left, so I am agnostic on whether the change of manager has done an...

Re: Weekend Football

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/av/football/49960000 New rule in action. Glentoran player gets a second yellow card, and a red, after ignoring the referee's request to leave the pitch at the nearest point when substituted. Good on the referee. Players need to show more respect and the new rules need to...

Re: BFT ???????????????????????????????????????????

You can blame all sorts of things - the goalie gave away two goals, Moore seems to have had as dramatic a loss of form as McShane did, the ref let Fulham make too many decisions, and Swift is an idiot - but that was piss poor from the manager. You can't just move from having three centre halves to t...

Re: Weekend Football

Alexander-Arnold's goal v Chelsea? Salah rolled it under his boot rather than kicking it - you can't do that can you? I thought it had to be a kick for a free kick. I would have disallowed it. Not covered, as far as I can see, in the rules A free kick can be taken by lifting the ball with a foot or...

Re: SpuROFLs

The amazing thing about Spurs is that they have managed to stay so high in the Premiership for so long, despite not spending much money for ages, and being excellent at buying rubbish players when they did. They also suffered more than most with the 2018 World Cup tiring players: Dele Ali and Trippi...

Re: CONFIMRED - Charlie Adam

Passing should always be played with a purpose. For example, when Moore and Miazga pass between each other, it often leaves me frustrated because I always wonder what the purpose of the pass is. Simple to say, but a pass should only be made if it puts the receiver in a better position than the pass...

Re: BFTG - Sheffield

It was OK. Moore's mistake was a bit of a surprise, but we came back with a nice equaliser, then gave away another soft goal. I thought we would get an equaliser, but then Adam came on, and that was it really. It must have been soul-destroying for the rest of the team who had been so careful with t...

Re: CONFIMRED - Liam Kelly

Good luck to Kelly. Something makes me think the Dutch league will be good for him if he can get enough games. It must be good for some of the Academy lads to see where you can end up after coming through the ranks at Reading. He was a good player for us. But his size made him a luxury player at tim...

Ndombele from Lyon to Spurs for €72M (€62M basic + €2.5M for each season they qualify for CL in the first 6 seasons he is there until €10M is reached) That's €62M then. I think they are spent, and this sort of transfer proves it. Who is going to replace them in the Champions League? :D That's a ver...
