  1. Sorry........I understand your viewpoint, and the seemingly unfair element..............but the Playofffs completely revived excitement and interest in the game. For all it's faults, it maintains drama and action right to the end of the season. IMHO I believe it transformed promotion and relegation to new levels.
  2. I have a major problem with VAR, and that is apart from the fact of the numerous delays, referees not looking at the pitchside monitors and goalscorers being unable to spontaneously celebrate, due to having to wait two minutes!! My problem is the unlevel playing field (Was it EVER level?). VAR should either exsist for the entire four divisions of the `professional football leagues, or NOT at all. There is more than enough money sloshing around within football to provide it for everyone, but NO, only the Premiership get it. It's like getting a speeding ticket if you own a Ford Mondeo.......but if you drive a Porsche, being let off. Just to scratch the surface with one tiny example, WBA's 3rd and 4th goals would have been disallowed in our 4-1 defeat (sic) if it was a Premiership game. Come the end of the season, we miss out on the sixth play off spot by a 2 goal margin. And this is a miniscule fraction of the goals that are given/not given in the lower leagues.........while the left wingers right hand testicle denys a winning goal in a Premiership match, by encroaching over the offside line? It massively unbalances amd makes a mockery of the whole fairness of the pyramid system of Professional football, where the Premiership is played under a Microscope, yet the lower leagues depend on the vagaries of the match officials questionable decision making. VAR should be scrapped, until it is available for all four divisions, or until the Premiership clubs, currently awash with SKY money, put their hands into their deep pockets and finance the clubs lower down the pyramid of the English Football Leagues, or indeed, FIFA loosen the purse strings of their crammed vaults of money, to introduce some impartiality, rather than profiteering into the game?
  3. If you lose 11-0..........it's not called Football.......but it is called Target Practice? PS OOh sorry 11-1 (Great Pen)
  4. Sorry...........get it now, after looking at Betfred site...........Congrats, great bet!!
  5. Curious to know How much u staked?
  6. I normally respect your opinion. but................Eliasson.....hop,skip. ping into the box. End of, Nothing Else.............Sorry to be glib? But thats just simplistic Boll Axe!
  7. Yes they both need a spell in the army, and a damn good talking to, and quite possibly an adminstered thrashing. This wouldn't have happened in my day, my old Sargeant Major would have laddered his stockings at the very thought of nancy boys!!
  8. Nagy and Massengo............The New American Cop Show coming soon on HBO TV!!
  9. I have a lot of respect for the womens game, but this is a little embarrassing. There seems to be 3 or 4 excellent teams and the rest are just also ran fodder?

    Wonder what he is worth now?.............£10 - £15 mill, I don't care if Exeter hated us, we should have signed him. I saw him play twice for Exeter, and even though I was an amateur footballer and a sub standard coach, I could see he was going to be an exceptional talent.

    Ridiculous that we missed out on Watkins...........that was substandard scouting, and quite unbelieveable that we lost out to Brentford for such an exceptional talent who was quite literally on our doorstep. While we were watching Diony...he slipped through our fingers, to this day I cannot conceive that we were so remiss.............£1.8 million!
  12. Would that be all the inbreeding?
  13. Can"t disagree........but its just the quality of our play which is so disappointing. I appreciate we have lost Webster, Dasilva and Afobe.......but we are mostly a dull and monotonous team, with little to entertain.
