Holloway on VAR

Recommended Posts

Dear God, what a moron. He works in the game but doesn't know of the existence of Ifab. Given that 4 of the 5 members are the English, Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish FAs perhaps the European leagues should be complaining?

To think there was a point when some of our fans wanted him as our manager.

I find it unbelievable they have him on a debate show. Kevin Phillips wasn’t much better. Holloway made bizarre points and examples all the way through. They are better off having these shows with Journalists like the Sunday supplement?

Does Brexit mean we’re leaving UEFA? Can we negotiate a deal to enter the African Cup of Nations?

We can set up our own World Cup under WTO rules. Global Britain!

When we leave on the 31st, will the rest of the season be played according to 1955 rules? Gonna be very confusing for the players. And I'm not sure that we have enough goalkeepers to handle the shoulder charges at corners.

Can’t believe that people on this forum still think he’s some kind of Bristol VIP or reflects well on our city . He’s not and he doesn’t. He’s just a massive embarrassment.

It's true though. Not only did the EU bring in VAR, they also allowed the Aussies into the Eurovision Song Contest.

One of the worst things about the beyond-satire age we live in is I'm actually unsure if you're joking or not...! :blink::blink:

Oh dear. When given the opportunity to prove whether you are an idiot or not, the recommended course of action is to keep quiet, rather than open your mouth and confirm everyone’s suspicions. What it doesn’t assume is that as well as opening your mouth your going to put both feet in it as well!

Last time I checked, FIFA are based in Switzerland, which isn’t even in the EU...but hey, apparently facts don’t matter any more. Which certainly helps if you don’t know anything but get paid to spout off on TV!

….. & Russia, how long have they been in Europe then eh?  can they even sing ?  ffs . ;) 

Most of 'em dont even speak English! 

Maybe Holloway is onto something -  we should form  a Europ-Ian Union of our own, our game, our ball.

I think Holloway has done something fantastic there.

No matter what everyone has tried, it has proved to be impossible to bring together Leavers and Remainers.  The divisions are too deep, the opinions too varied and the rhetoric too nasty.

But now we are all united in the opinion that Holloway is a ****ing idiot.

No wonder the Brexit party have done so well if this is the kind of thing their voters believe is true.

People will have their individual views on Brexit.

That notwithstanding, surely we can all agree- what we at AG have known for years but now all others can see it too- Hollowhead...a clown!

He is desperately trying to back track but still seems to be unaware of the existence or membership of Ifab. He clearly doesn't know that it is dominated by the four home unions and that Fifa has to represent the interests of all the others.

When you're in a hole stop digging.

I'm absolutely gutted he has a Bristolian accent and is seen as a representative of our City in English football. The bloke has always been a top drawer twit! Just luckily for us he is associated with the bin dippers rather than City.

The sooner he never gets any media coverage the better, for me he is on the same scale as Katie Price and Gemma Collins when it comes to pointless people being given airtime.

And, even more remarkably, 100% agreement on OTIB. 

No idea what's between his ears, but it's not a brain.
