Re: Rumour - Ruben Semedo

Nameless Worth having a word with Fleetwood to see if we can get Ched Evans on loan as well ?

May be worth noting that, as I keep explaining to Mrs F, Ched Evans is innocent. He may not be very nice, but not a convicted one.

Re: VAR

To the naked eye that looks like the defenders knee is playing him on. To make matters worse that wasn't even the cross from which they scored. I've not seen it yet but according to Durham and The Moose on TalkSport (I know, I know) it should've been seen as two different phases of play . The Sheff...

Re: BFTG - Luton

Rafael - Nothing to to do. Kicking poor though. 6 Yiadom - Not his best game. Sometimes needs to play the ball down the channels rather than dribbling his way out. 6 Miazga, Moore and Morrison - Never troubled by a toothless Luton attack. 7 Richards - Good performance from Omar. Defended well and g...

Re: BFTG - Luton

John Madejski's Wallet How on earth are Fulham the 6th highest scorers? They were like a Jaap Stam team at its absolute worst

Baldock and Swift were excellent, and the two wing backs were dominant in attack. Especially Richards, who was class for that second

Fulham ?

Re: Record Watch 2019/20

Looks like we are not even going to have a sweat this year. just over 2 points a game is the best out there at the moment Agree - its over this season Liverpool can still get 112 - rather amazingly, that’s not yet out of the question.

Re: VAR

As predicted, VAR isn't really solving any of the issues video technology was supposed to address. At the same time it's created it's own issues, slowed down the game at times, impacted on the way referees appear to be making decisions, and it's starting to have a negative effect on the joy of watc...

Real pity that Elliott has started perfecting his diving already.

Otherwise such a fantastic game to watch.

Re: VAR

"unlike football"? Time is added on (or is meant to be) for VAR stoppages by the ref. But that’s exactly the point. Time is ‘specifically’ added on in rugby and ‘might’ be added on in football. Time is managed by what is effectively the fourth official in rugby and should be in football. ...

Re: VAR

I believe that the checks run against a goal for things like offside are deemed to be factual checks and so clear and obvious doesn't come into it. It's not accurate to make calls of the nature it is though, so it's ridiculous the extent they've gone to. The rest is all just one subjective opinion ...

Re: Fans Forum with Mark Bowen Oct 29

He's unbeaten in 2 games so is now clearly the Second Coming . He came across as level headed and honest when he was a consultant and DoF. I see no reason for this to change now he's manager. I think he's the "safe" appointment we've been crying out for for the past 5 years. Decent ground...

Re: VAR

But then you look at some of the incidents VAR hasn’t given and you wonder how the Brighton one can be given compared to others And this is where I find VAR confusing. I thought they were only meant to overrule something which is a “clear and obvious error”. Take an offside decision by literally mi...

Re: Weekend Football

Scoring a hat-trick seems to get way more praise and excitement than 1 more goal than scoring 2 goals. The hat-trick itself seems to be what's celebrated, instead, or maybe on top of, the actual 3 goals. It seems off. I hope I am making sense here. ummmmmm wtf? I feel like because it has a little n...
