  1. VAR - yes or no?

    All I can I say, is this to cater for the upper middle to high class eastern fans,like every transfer is. Money has certainly come too light in football ,over the last 10/15 years. Why I say that is ,with no malice,football in the UK is ,or was for the low working class fan.,it's changing here also,and now we have quite a lot of working class ,middle to high class type of fan also,but in the middle east and even easter it takes money to indulge in football,and for the working class and middle to high class,the economy is good,so asides from booze and women,they need to impress their colleagues, what Football team they support, and which world class footballer plays for them, how much he cost more than others,Arsenal, Chelsea,Real,Barcelona obviously Us,and other teams also,are supported passionately there,and merchandise, advertising, and TV rights are sold for vast sums of money,this football interest easily quadruples the amount of money that is gambled.. This summer we will get a £200m player. How about sensors,on their heads ,and legs,that would stand out ,or /could trigger a light ,that can attest the player is offside,when replaying Btw..I'm not pissed off truly with Var, in time it will grow on me ..like it has in cricket.
  2. VAR - yes or no?

    Offside ,has not been a problem throughout football. .it's the penalty decisions that kill you,the vital corner given that should not have been,or not given when it should have been...the 2nd yellow not given when it should be,the list is endless. .if your trying to fix one problem ,then fix the lot, if not..then leave it be.
  3. VAR - yes or no?

    So exactly at what point do they judge the offside from,is it from when the crosser,brings his feet towards the ball,when he touches the ball, or when he kicks the ball,and in them 3 stages,which will consist of about 30 frames , (pure guess) or so,does Mata (in this case)become onside at some point,in order for Var to really work,it should be deployed in the same way as it is in cricket, where a replay is played many times over ,in order to see if a catch is legit,or did the ball touch the ground. Lines are only good from a camera angle at head height,in that case the linesman, would have it on his forehead. Any other angle can lead to discrepancies. Slow motion replay will show,where each player is at time of the ball being released ,for the record,I'm interested in knowing,why is it not at the point of receiving ,that would be fair. My campaign. Off side ..rule. .should it be when the ball is ,Released or Received, that's the million dollar question. At present Var shows when it's about to be released ,contact with ball in most cases is not made,but about to be made..
  4. Ander Herrera 2017/18

    I got slated. ..but I still rated Him ,as a very good squad player. .but as proven, not the calibre of player needed,if We are too become a top team again. Mctominay needs to carry on,and improve himself,I reckon he will cover,what we expected from Hererra but never really got,although in fairness he did have a few, very influential games .Age now is not on his side,but saying that he still has something to offer in the right set up, maybe here, back in Spain,or even Italy,in any top 10 team.
  5. Phil Jones 2017/18

    That's a first.
  6. This lot owned the Europa league,and they are now rightfully in this competition, they are used, too tough games,but I don't really think we are capable of giving them a tough game,United need a minimum off 8/10 performances from all the squad, in order too get through..but if We win Them, away and home,then I will consider it, too be our year.

  8. VAR - yes or no?

    I prefer the linesman too say it's offside. .they get paid for it..otherwise do away linesman as well and refs.if he said it was offside yesterday ..I can live that. If takes time too make it work properly..then it's fallible. .as the wonky lines they showed in the first replay. . If your offside..your offside. .we have wrong decisions in corners penalties and throw ins..even some fouls are given or not given..just basic human error..as they say it all evens out in the coarse of the season.. The lines drawn were from slight different angles. .from I saw .then it took a while to get it right..but was it right. The benefit of doubt should go too the attacker,when the difference is so minute. I prefer natural play..and in time decisions. .whether they are wrong or right..you score a goal ..it's given..you celebrate. .then 10 minutes later its disallowed. .takes away the essence of the whole game for me.
  9. Summer clearance

    Who never made the bench..I'm sorry I never understood that bit @venusplanet
  10. Romelu Lukaku 2017/18

    He's a great counter attacking player,always seems to need more than a extra touch in close quarters though, he needs to work on that,and when receiving with his back to the opposition ,he needs to be quick in thinking of which way too go,and how to utilise less space,by guiding the ball correctly to path he needs to go..gets caught too often by cbs,needlessly. It's a skill he needs urgently to go to next level.
  11. Romelu Lukaku 2017/18

    I thought ,he was only on about 10 goals.
