  1. The claim that subjectivity has been removed seems a bit ludicrous too when the word "deliberately" now appears twice and so does "unnaturally". Not exactly objective judgement there.
  2. The people whinging about consistency were largely managers and pundits, not fans, who are universally reviling these changes. You can have consistency and subjectivity with training and skilled referees, the tools are now there but instead of trying to use them properly they made the rules far too complicated. A simple objective rule would be just removing the word "deliberate" and calling handball whenever it strikes and arm or hand. This Frankenstein mess is pathetic and awful to watch and it will get rolled back, but sadly not until after they've ruined a season or two.
  3. These decisions are "correct" only because the rules have been changed to be farcical. This has nothing to do with consistency, which is of course desirable, because we could have had consistency without shit rule changes. All we needed was to modify last season's use of VAR by instructing referees to use TV screens instead of relying on idiots on the panel. That was all that was required. We've now got laws that look like this: This is hugely over complex and is making the game consistently less enjoyable to watch or play.
  4. To be fair I thought he was better in that game than previous but bear in mind it's not just misplaced passes that give the ball away.
  5. I am quite surprised at how many people on this forum watched so many of Wigan's games last season.
  6. What I don't really get is how the results in Spain and Italy were considered a successful experiment that should be rolled out globally? What are they watching?
  7. Great hard work, moves the ball fast on the break, gets into decent positions. Passing not good enough for midfield IMO, too many moves break down when he gets to the end of his run.
  8. These handball decisions have all been absolutely terrible. I don't know how anybody changing these guidelines could possibly think this is what fans want. The root problem here is that the laws say "deliberate" precisely so that players are only penalised for cheating not for getting hit by accident, if the authorities want to take the subjective component out of it just cross that word out and have call it an infringement whenever a hand or arm touches the ball. This half arsed middle ground where they make up utter nonsense guidelines that fly in the face of it is no use to a
  9. I think Cov will finish 13th-18th and Stoke will be in the relegation battle again. Wednesday will probably be 13th-18th with the deduction. Forest away will be interesting, they have been quite shite so far but should be aiming for playoffs.
  10. Much better second half, good result. We need to start games like that.
  11. I've watched since the 80s too. We made error after error, tried to play counter attack against a side defending deep and giving up possession, didn't get any joy wide or manage a shot on goal. There was not a single moment of excitement in that for me.
  12. Anyone describing that as entertaining probably enjoys updates from the Big Brother house.
  13. Hallelujah. A journeyman wasn't typically badly thought of btw, it was a rung on the ladder between apprentice and master.
