  1. 3 games more like. He doesn't need a backbone when he can just lie mislead and say it was always a mistake and he has no memory of doing this.
  2. 18 months of shutdown and Firstbus still sucks as well.

    Probably took the server with him knowing our luck

    Same issue here. Great start.
  7. All you needed to say.
  8. Or Wigan. Or Bury. Or Bolton. Or Macclesfield. Wednesday got bitchslapped with points lost a season too late, I wonder if they won't touch Derby after the fine after all.
  9. Depends on if AG will be allowed to have a certain amount of attendees, or everyone.
  10. Didn't think it warranted a new thread but Scott Parker has taken the Bournemouth job after a Mutual Consent nod. Are Fulham due a Transition Period(TM)?
  11. "... now, we're playing four-four-*******-two."
  12. That's literally all Twerton had going for it. And the station was further away from Twerton than Parkway is to WISE campus.
  13. That makes more sense, i thought it was a ****-you move.
  14. It may be the last of him depending on how far Hungary get Oh wait, Ashton's gone. Phew.
  15. No Prem teams in the first round, second round has the Prem teams that aren't in UEFA competitions (plus the two Champ sides that finished 18th/19th - Fulham & WBA. No idea why 20th doesn't get a bye.)
  16. Gotcha, so it wasn't done as a goof. I'll have to remember that. EDIT: This was *seventeen* years ago?
  17. I think some clarification is needed for the young 'uns (and I hope I get the story right). For reasons unknown to this day NTTDS flew up to Newcastle on the morning of a Hartlepool away game, took a photo of the plane, then boarded the next flight home and listened to the game on the radio and it's been an OTIB staple gag ever since.
  18. Yep. Distance doesn't make a difference.
  19. Bet he wouldn't get chipped by Steve Sidwell on Bonfire Night...
  20. Under EU law I believe they are.

    VAR

    Sorry I can't fit your very simple narrative no matter how hard you bark. I do not have a problem with officials in a broad sense. I believe that VAR is not being used consistently and the referees - and certainly PGMOL - don't want to bother improving it. Most of the conversation in this thread asserts that notion but nobody here has any better Idea than sacking it off and going back to partisan whining and "REFS ARE BOSS, UG". Thus many people here, including you, are part of that problem.

    VAR

    Then keep that opinion to yourself and leave it to people who can actually debate instead of parroting the same braindead crap. I have shown where I agreed with you, and least Cowshed went to the trouble of elaborating on the tech itself. Football *is* back. There's plenty wrong with it we have had a year out to resolve and it just hasn't happened. And in your last post you made a new assumption - TV companies having an axe to grind - that does have merit and does warrant further discussion. Back that up, learn to debate points, then come back to the argument. We still are getting spontanous reactions to goals. That won't stop, not every decision is stopped for 5 minutes at a time, and *UNLIKE* Cowshed I think that cutting down review time and having clearer explanations will help integrate VAR better.

    VAR

    That's your privilege to feel that way. You're not correct. VAR in this country is in the mess it is because judgements are inconsistent and infuriating, which has been the problem forever, and your solution to just bin it off and go back to where things were is not going to solve anything. You want referees to have greater respect yet at the same time you want to go back to people ranting and raving at the ref missing / getting things wrong because "it's part of the sport". That's two-faced. Football at the top in this country has ego problems on both the playing and - at times - officiating levels (DEFINITELY at the governing level). If you want refs to be afforded more respect we can't create situations where refs that do make biased judgements are afforded greater protection and lesser scrutiny. That feeling itself will filter further down the pyramid and make the problems you outline far, far worse as fans will further take their frustrations out on volunteer refs. Here I completely agree with you, so whatever happens cannot be allowed to make it worse. Furthermore even if you believe instances of bias are rare they have far more damaging repercussions for the clubs that suffer the short end, and managers that do speak out are uniformly disciplined / fined right off the bat. If they have mechanisms to make formal complaints these aren't clear and obvious to the general public. I do see that it's not the same sport. I don't use that notion to justify why it should be exempt from evolution. The tech has been developed and allowed to develop. Why do people feel it has to be perfect right out of the box? sort out the consistency and pacing of the judgements and it will work better. You want a better example? Villa getting a massive letoff when the Goal-Line tech hadn't been switched on just after the COVID restart. Did anyone get fined over that incident? it helped to cost Bournemouth their spot in the PL and a ton of money. Before the technology was even a thing City benefited from said error (the Freddie Sears ghost goal).
  24. That'll do me, all three of those. Match the badge with the colours too (we'd probably get Mansion in white text on the third though )
