  1. Romelu Lukaku 2017/18

    Sanchez was the one making the space for him, and Mata to a lesser degree. Our early goal also meant that Huddersfield had to come out and attack and that created more space for Lukaku. The more defensive-minded we are, the harder Lukaku seems to find it and he ends up doing a lot of running for little reward.
  2. Summer - 2018 Transfer Targets

    They said that last summer if I remember rightly.
  3. Scott McTominay Thread 2017/18

    From what I've seen, he's improving with every game he plays. He's got good positional sense, keeps things simple, and keeps his head up. I have high hopes for him and he might save us a bundle in the transfer market.
  4. VAR - yes or no?

    It has no place in football. It hasn't done much for Rugby League by all accounts (although I'm no expert on that game) and, as Wagner said, it drains the emotion from the game. It's fine for stop-start sports like the NFL but for fast-flowing games, it's useless. 'Clear and obvious' is the standard, so they tell us, but that was not applied to Mata. I don't want some fucking computer nerd in Stockley Park having any sort of input into a live game.
  5. Summer clearance

    Apart from the questionable handball call, Smalling held the defence together well at Huddersfield. Trouble with him is his lack of consistency and tendency to commit stupid errors from time to time.
  6. What Movies Are You Watching Right Now?

    Didn't HG Wells write the screenplay for that? Haven't seen it in years.
  7. FAC - 5th Round - Huddersfield vs Man Utd

    With VAR? I hope not. That shambles should be binned.
  8. FAC - 5th Round - Huddersfield vs Man Utd

    Bailly? Odd sub at this stage.
  9. FAC - 5th Round - Huddersfield vs Man Utd

    'We all hate Leeds scum' ringing out. Must be both sets of fan.
  10. FAC - 5th Round - Huddersfield vs Man Utd

    Dunno about that but Hunt was right there and raised his arm straight away.
  11. FAC - 5th Round - Huddersfield vs Man Utd

    It was. Hunt saw it cross the line.
  12. FAC - 5th Round - Huddersfield vs Man Utd

    Great counter. Lovely pass from Sanchez and Lukaku does the business. Stick your VAR up your arse.
  13. FAC - 5th Round - Huddersfield vs Man Utd

    You just know they've thought about it. They're turning football into something resembling the NFL.
  14. FAC - 5th Round - Huddersfield vs Man Utd

    It's micro-managing the game and allowing referees to pass the buck and avoid blame for unpopular decisions. The game is sanitized enough without adding this crap. I don't mind Hawkeye but this is a step too far. And yes, I would say the same had it been a Huddersfield player who scored.
  15. FAC - 5th Round - Huddersfield vs Man Utd

    I'm watching on Fox. They just had an American VAR expert on to explain how it works. It has essentially removed the benefit of the doubt from the attacking player. A 'millimeter' offside? FFS, that is insane. Wait until VAR costs someone a place in a final or a trophy and there'll be ructions.
