Rodri managed to get away with loads of tactical fouls that City specialise in during the first half without getting booked so I think they'll be alright.

Poor old West Ham. That City bench probably demoralised them before kick off. Imagine pressing and chasing for an hour and then those players start warming up. Heller looks good, he'll do well in the Premier League. Man City with Stones and Walker at the back would give me a heart attack. What's wrong, sometimes with just getting rid?

Was it the keeper off line or Rice encroaching that triggered the retake ?


Rice and half of the team, not monitoring keeper movement was the guidelines but ref can still give a retake for players or keeper regardless of VAR.

How fucking difficult is it for the FA to ring up the RFA and say "Alright guys, you know your video replay system etc that you use... any chance you can forward on the details of who provides it for you so we can stick exactly the same thing in?"

 

And whlist they're at it, Mic up the refs as well so everyone can hear exactly whats being said.....

 Interesting explanation on the pen, var was in play as rice encroached and was then first player to touch ball, not cos keeper off line or even just the encroaching

It’s called the Vertonghen law :D

Refs won’t get mics while there’s a chance a nearby player can do a nasty swear, I imagine. 

 

In principle VAR could be useful, but after a successful showing in Russia, it’s been utterly unconvincing. Except when Spurs beat City, because LOL.

This. Is. Epic.

 

It would be great if he actually cuts loose and spills the beans on how badly both clubs are run, but you know we're not going to get that. We'll get standard Mourinho nonsense filled with unfathomable agendas against particular players (Shaw and Pogba would be advised not to Sky Plus the coverage) and bucketfuls of self-serving bullshit designed to tell everyone how great Jose Mourinho is.

Players swearing is a bullshit excuse for refs not having mics. The refs have mics in the Rugby League have them and I am sure their players are far more likely to swear.

Not really when they can be penalised for dissent with a yardage penalty.  Same as in Aussie Rules - 50m penalty for it.  Agreed that it is a bullshit excuse though.

Not my excuse, I’d love refs to have mics for the accountability. But when BT Sport have to make an apology for language during UFC at 5:01am, don’t fancy them or others being eager to open up more popular broadcasts to the possibility of breaching compliance.

 

Production-wise the easiest method would be to have the mic only open during specific VAR discussions. Think players have been told they can’t encroach during these moments. Maybe once other aspects related to VAR have been sorted we’ll get to more polished presentation.

I’m sure I’ve asked this before, but why is there no City thread on here? I know they weren’t really supported outside of Manchester back when they were at Maine Road, but surely there must be some glory hunters around now they’ve had all that cash thrown at them?

We're on a board full of blokes, the vast majority over 35, nobody changes their team at that age.

 

That demographic also highlights why Man United and Liverpool threads are popular.

Takes years. Most people in this county have picked their team by the time they are ten so most of the glory hunting City fans either haven’t got pubes yet or live overseas and aren’t really rllmuks demographic.  

 

 

Also: woo Villa! Having to make do with Talksport on the train but even if we end up losing today the first half will fill us with confidence.

I still find it a bit weird that there isn’t anyone on here who wants to talk about them. I’m from Manchester myself and have  always been a United fan, but the increase in City supporters amongst people I’ve met over the years definitely shows that there are loads more of them now. Maybe they’ve always been around, but they’re not as embarrassed to admit it these days.

Villa playing well. Impressed with them. 

 

Could have had a penalty as well. Sanchez got all of the player and none of the ball.
