  1. Yep exactly what it is. I've actually used a variation of one of these during rehab.
  2. That's just the quasi mode of some people on here though.
  3. Not watching here so asking those thst are - is there signs that we are starting to develop supirior stamina? It seems like we are coming into the game more as it goes on. Are the Pompy players looking tired compared to us?
  4. On a lot of American made cars the brake light is the indicator! So they are red.
  5. I have the same. @Tinmans Love Child I just found that out via your post . The worst for me was playing cricket. If the ball ended up in long grass just outside the boundary of the pitch I played out it was basically invisible to me. Could jot for a nd it even if looking right at it!
  6. Correct - Mark Clattenburg was part of the coverage on ESPN here in the states. He commented in real time while the checks were being made and gave his verdict and reasoning before the refs decesion. For the Kane penalty appeal he said the ref obviously hadn't felt there was enough contact and there wouldn't be enough on the replay to make this a clear and obvious error. For the penalty that was given he said the same - the ref obviously felt there was enough contact and the replay wouldn't show this a clear and obvious error. Now for me the Kane one was more of a penalty but it seems VAR is for finding things the ref completely missed. Think that's a good question, and it's kind of answered above. It wouldn't have been overturrned because VAR would not have found a clear and obvious error either. However the same goes for the Kane penalty appeal if he gives that then VAR would also not have found a clear and obvious error and it would have stood. Now you can argue about whether we need VAR the way it is currently implemented, but it was actually used correctly here. And interestingly (to me anyway) on this occasion both outcomes would have been the same even without it.
  7. Have to watch on ESPN here in the US. They have Mark Clattenburg comment on any contentious moments. He gave the same reason for England not getting the pen earlier as getting the Pen later (that lead to the goal). UEFA say VAR should only over rule if there is a strong reason to overrule the initial decision - something blatantly missed by the referee. His comments while the incidents are under review so he is noot being biased by hindsight.
  8. It's a bit out of the way, but if you head to airport catch a flight to San Jose, California. Then head to The Britannia arms in Cupertino - they'll be showing the game and the atmosphere is great! Hope that helps.
  9. Sterling shades maybe as we won, Schmeichel was amazing though. Thought Walker not far behind either, had a great game.
  10. It's got to be max!
  11. I think certain players get over scruntanised. Rashford has not played at peak all season, but most players don't - he still recorded 11 goals and 9 assists in 37 prem games - that's scoring and creating in every other game. Even in current form he warrants his place in my opinion.
  12. I agree - its difficult to grab your chance as a defender though. He didn't really do anything wrong just played it safe all game - received the ball and then passed it back pretty much every time (though with the way the Scots set up often there weren't that many options). We have so many talented RB's - to break through and get established you probably have to take a few more risks as a player, but that is also something you don't necessarily want you defenders doing + make a mistake doing it and your chance probably won't come again for a while.
  13. Will he be ale to resurrect his career?
  14. Agree with pretty much all of this. However the bit in bold - this definitely gives relegated teams a massive and unfiar advantage, but the flip side is if you don't have this then promoted teams have no chance of competing in the premier league - they will not be able to employ players on a high enough salary as they will have to effectively work with a championship budget incase they are relegated. Something needs to change, but i'm not sure how you work around that.
  15. Amazingly I'm just reading that is the first time we have ever won a knockout stage game at the euros - without penalties! That is quite staggering.
  16. Thought Phillips did great, popped up in their box a few times some good passing, but more than that constantly broke up the Germans play - seemed to intercept the ball lots of times. Having said that I've said similar things about city players only to have @Davefevs pop up with the actual stats and show me I was clearly wrong!
  17. Still think Werner goal would have been ruled out by VAR. Watching Sweden vs Ukraine if we play Sweden they get so many players back nearly always 5-7 player in there box when Ukraine attack. I think as you say Grealish would be essential- he'd either unlock the defensive or draw fouls. Have trippier in as well and work on set pieces.
  18. Agree, although I thought the Muller chance was a better one for Germany + I'm pretty sure (having just watched the highlights the Werner chance may have been ruled out for handball in the build up if he'd scored.
  19. Ummm.. I think you are forgetting the very prestigious Tournoi de France! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1997_Tournoi_de_France So prestigious it's only really remembered because thats where Roberto Carlos scored that insane free kick.
  20. Watching in the US a so can't see/hear what he's been saying post game. Could you share? Edit: Never-mind just saw this on the bbc live text feed: You have to recognise the moment. This is England's moment. You've got to realise if you go through the quarter-final you play a semi-final here, and you maybe have a sell-out crowd in the final. It's not going to be an easy road to the final, but it's doable. Now they have showed the belief, Harry Kane broke through and the energy is high. You've got to take advantage of that and win this all.
  21. I was half hoping someone would step up and take his place before the tournament, but he has been fantastic and is looking composed and confident. Fantastic distribution and some world class saves.
  22. Got to respect a poster who genuinely listens to responses and reflects - instead of doubling down.
