Re: The Non - League thread

Frome Town 2-0 Thatcham Town att 394 - leaders Frome pull 5 pts clear. Thatcham do have 2 games in hand - though have lost 2 in a row - their first league setbacks this season. This was abandoned after about 70 minutes so will be replayed and Thatcham remain unbeaten (unless something has changed).

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

No Virgil definitely made the defence seem a bit shakier than it has. As much as they've prioritised this over the rumbelows cup I don't think they're going all out and will just hope to avoid any injuries Agreed, they're rotating for this trip and not playing playings who might not be 100% who pro...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

And it will be interesting to see how bothered they are in this daft tournament. If I was Klopp I’d be getting the players geared up for the Leicester game and treating Qatar as friendlies. Listening to the radio the other day , apparently this is considered to be the ultimate prize by the South Am...

Re: The Non - League thread

Not sure where else to put this, but apparently (I heard it on TalkSport earlier) the England Women's captain has said how she doesn't really like watching women's football but loves to sit down and watch a mens game.

Not really the kind of soundbite women's football is after.

Re: The Non - League thread

Old Man Andrews Geoff Warner leaves Bracknell Town again. Groundhog day.


I feel a bit sorry for Geoff, they've booted him out twice in 6 months now and I know how much he likes the club.

Another manager bites the dust at Bracknell!

According to their statement Tally was only an interim. Did he know that?

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

Lovely to see Steve Bruce making the Toon Army, and a number of his doubters, eat their words by having Newcastle in a pretty decent position. I'm not sure how it compares to Rafa's league positions at this stage in proceedings but it can't be far off if not better than most of his campaigns, and t...

Leicester taking steps to dissuade any interest in Rodgers. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/50684861 As mentioned on the Arsenal thread, I'd see someone like Rafa as a good choice for either of Everton (his family still live up there don' they?) or Arsenal. I'd love for a British manager to get...

I don't think it'll take half that amount to fix it IF they get in a manager who can organise and put the structure in place to provide a half decent platform for their attacking players to perform from..

Re: VAR

Without VAR he might have actually watched the free kick (we are talking about Luiz's no goal yeah?) rather than partridge shrugging and going "sod it, VAR will know" A different goal, but I do think it's a point worth highlighting, that officials are changing the way they're making decis...

Re: VAR

Where does physically touching or running in front of come into it? Isn't that the point where in your implementation of the law you'd have the penalty retaken? A player clearing a saved penalty from being tapped in by an attacker by virtue of their encroachment giving them a headstart to get to th...

Re: VAR

I agree with you on goalie off their line. I'm asking why you wouldn't take the same sensible approach on encroachment. If a keeper tips a penalty around the post, no advantage has been gained from a defender encroaching into the box. If a penalty is scored, no advantage is gained by an attacker en...

Re: The Non - League thread

Interesting video and discussion around this abandonment in the Hellenic. https://twitter.com/ysswindon/status/1201986392479485953 The referee lost control here for me, there was no need to abandon that game. Possibly. It's really difficult to know without hearing exactly what, and how, was said to...

Re: VAR

On point of above - players have been told - "you must play on" = assistant is only assisting and its the whistle you adhere to. I will keep saying it - VAR should just be matter of fact. Was it in or out of play, was it offside, was it inside the box - the rest is referee interpretation ...

Royal Rother Oh, and there’s another company formed 3 weeks ago called “STFC NEWCO LTD” - sole director Kayne Steinborn Busse.

I wonder what the S stands for.

A new company was formed last month called “BTFC NEWCO LTD” - sole director Kayne Steinborn Busse. Wonder what that means.... That’s an interesting one.
