  1. Jamal Musiala has declared for Germany. Which isn't a surprise as he was born in Germany, but is a shame. He's 17, moved to England aged 7 with his British father, and has represented England at u21 level. He came through the Chelsea youth system before moving to Bayern and recently breaking into their first team. Operates mainly as a classic number 10, and while we are utterly stocked with incredibly exciting young attacking talent, that's a role we currently don't have much of coming through. But it's fine, the number 10 role is well out of fashion these days and we'll nev
  2. Given we all know that's a foul, I really don't think we would. Salah wouldn't do that though, his actual dive in the game was far more composed and practiced.
  3. According to your link, Man City had 51 points after 25 games. Liverpool are 11 points worse - currently they have 40. To put it another way*, your example of a weaker title defence is 27.5% better than Liverpool. *And a completely unfair, twisting of numbers way.
  4. Because the rules say nothing about when shots are taken, or passages of play. Tripping or obstructing another player is a foul. Trent slides into DCL's path and trips him. To spin your question, where is DCL meant to go? It was called as a foul, confirmed as a foul after a VAR check, and please show me if I'm wrong here, but I'm not seeing an outcry from experts on social media that it shouldn't have been a pen. It's pretty much as nailed on a foul as you're going to see. It's the second bit, TAA's kick out at DCL, that's the bit that is open to interpretation.
  5. https://streamable.com/gx2b18 That's a foul all day. You kind of say to yourself: 'tries' to stop the shot.
  6. How is that not a red card? DOGO with no attempt to play the ball. Gotta say though, Covid or not this is the weakest defence of a title I've seen in many a year.
  7. I'll stress this is a bit of a wild theory based on nothing here, but I think they're resistant to it due to less ability to control the FUT market. Less supply of cards means higher prices, and with more players in one pool, there's more cards on the market. And while yes, there's more buyers too which equals more demand, the bottom prices stay low which is where the majority of coins are hoovered up. And it's this hoovering up of coins which allows EA to push packs and make more skrillah. Like I said, just a wild theory.
  8. Ted Lasso *is* proper great.
  9. I could post some snarky comment about the lack of criticism from Klopp, Guardiola, Mourinho, etc, on the new format, given how vocal they are about the amount of games their players have to play. But I can't be arsed frankly. Yadda yadda big clubs money ruining football yadda yadda.
  10. The law covers that too: IMPEDING THE PROGRESS OF AN OPPONENT WITHOUT CONTACT Impeding the progress of an opponent means moving into the opponent’s path to obstruct, block, slow down or force a change of direction when the ball is not within playing distance of either player. All players have a right to their position on the field of play; being in the way of an opponent is not the same as moving into the way of an opponent. A player may shield the ball by taking a position between an opponent and the ball if the ball is within playing distance and the opponent is not held
  11. The actual rules, because it's weird that they are never referred to correctly by the media, pundits or people discussing if something is or isn't a foul. I've highlighted the two entries under which Luiz' actions are a foul. [spoiler] Direct free kick A direct free kick is awarded if a player commits any of the following offences against an opponent in a manner considered by the referee to be careless, reckless or using excessive force: charges jumps at kicks or attempts to kick pushes strikes or attempts to strike (including head-but
  12. Done. Some top kits in there. I can't believe Scarlett Ross is losing in round 4.
  13. Wayne Rooney takes full time charge at Derby, and thus retires from playing. He finishes a career where he won: 5 Premier League Titles, the Champions League, the UEFA League, the FA Cup (surprisingly only once) and 3 leagues cups. He's England's all time record goal scorer, and most capped outfield player (120 caps, Shilton is 1st with 125). He's been PFA player of the year, the PWA player of the year and PFA fans player of the year twice. He's the 2nd-highest Premier League all-time top scorer (208 goals), and 3rd-highest Premier League all-time assist-provider (103
  14. The racists haven't won. This is a step backwards for sure. It's disappointing at best and as a Millwall fan, heartbreaking at worst. But the racists have not won because us who support BLM haven't given up. And I mean all of us, all fans of all teams, and all people who continue to fight for and support tolerance, equal opportunities and and end to racism. A large section of the Millwall crowd tonight applauded QPR taking the knee. Hopefully our crowd will continue to do so - I can promise I will as soon as I'm back at games. And as long as that is the prevailing action taken
