Football Thread 2020/2021


Recommended Posts

I was referring more to the fact that Kelleher wasn’t playing who seemed to be the number 2 given Adrian’s shitness. I didn’t know he was injured. Still, surely there was a passer by who could have played in goal.

I like that they've obviously made a conscious decision not to call him Slabhead and that was the best they could come up with.

Well, guess it's either that of Magaluf :lol:

Norris Maguireter, you mean? Bit complex for a footballer's nickname, Gottersy.

 

Gotters is already the nickname, taken from Gottron. Which itself was taken from the medical condition Gottron Papules, which was the name we gave to a a childhood seal puppet my son loved 20y ago.

Luke Shaw claimed the official told United’s captain, Harry Maguire, that he chose not to award a penalty because he was worried about the post-match reaction.

 

:lol:sure he did Luke:blink:

 

Maguire now saying the ref didn’t say what Shaw said he did. Oh dear.

 

How many penalties have united been given since Klopps penalty ‘meltdown’?

 

And I can see many a club website pumping out images of controversial Utd decisions prior to their games following Oles rant.

 

Football isn’t  just sport, the soap opera around it is always great value.

The Ole 'meltdown' supersedes Klopps I reckon.  Guy has gone a bit crazy and I expect he's woken up today like you do after a particular heavy night on the sauce and thought, wtf was I thinking?!:lol:

Did any United player even appeal for a penalty when it happened, I only saw Chelsea players appeal for the handball against the United player. Luckily these things even themselves out over the season don’t they.

Have we given up on VAR complaining now and just accepted its shite? 
 

Im not sure if the ball for Liverpool’s goal was further over the line than the non goal Spurs scored against Man U back on the day :o

I think the bigger revelation was that they call Harry Maguire H. 

 

Ah that makes more sense, I thought he was referring to Callum Hudson-Odoi there.

Nah, probably just the FA not caring that a fairly high profile player has made a pretty massive claim against one of their referees after a match on live TV. I'm sure you know how much the FA doesn't care about stuff like that!

It's very odd.  Isn't there audio between the VAR and the ref, which is presumably recorded? I wonder if that had any bearing on this decision, or if there's been some kind of relaxation of the rules regarding bringing the game into disrepute.  They do say they reviewed "available footage," which would suggest they've checked Luke Shaw's claims in some way.  

 

It could be that Stuart Atwell is in some trouble right now. He wouldn't be the first referee to be influenced by outside pressures. They're human beings.  Mark Clattenberg recently said that when he was refereeing in the Premier League he thinks some of his decisions were subconsciously affected by him being terrified of Sir Alex Ferguson!  I'm in favour of that though, of course.

They're a very weird side.  You would, until recently, say they have had a good season but they're only two points above my lot and 3 ahead on GD and we've been nothing better than average all season.

That's lovely.

 

At some point in the last five years or so (or maybe more, I am getting old and time's concertina-ing like a motherfucker), the top flight in Finland after four matches had every one of its twelve teams perfectly ordered from 12 points down to 1. It was linked from The Guardian's Knowledge section at the time, but I'm damned if I can find that or any capture from the time.

 

Edit: found it! It was in 2015, and not exactly as I remembered it. I'm a programmer - off-by-one errors are expected.
