Football Thread 2020/2021


Recommended Posts

If we are still doing hopes for 2021:

 

 Can I add an end to COVID 19, Brexit actually turning out to be good for the economy and Manchester United not getting another fucking bullshit penalty against us?  If we have to only have realistic options then I’ll just take the first two.

Fuck me, just watched the pogba dive. Two games running United have cheated a penalty out of Villa. 
 

I didn’t watch the game, but I expect VAR must have looked at that for a good five minutes or at least advised the ref to go to the monitor, right?

State of this salty crap :lol: Defender was all over him and then clipped his leg. At least it makes up for the Mings elbow that VAR didn't even bother to look at eh?

Like I say, I didn’t watch the game, so I didn’t see the Mings incident, I’ll try and find it, but from what I saw it wasn’t a penalty and Villa have every right to be annoyed. 
 

Again.

 

Edit:- dive is the wrong word, looked like Pogba clipped his own heel, soft penalty from what I saw.

Dive is definetly the wrong word as the defender was all over him and then clipped Pogbas foot. :lol:

The penalty is soft as shit, but that is what you get at Old Trafford. VAR looked at it for about 15 seconds.

 

It was a pretty appalling referee performance all round. Luke Shaw racked up enough fouls to be booked about 4 times over. Lo and behold he did eventually get a booking about 5 minutes from time. Matic did the same. Fernandes had a couple as well.

 

Just add it to the list of appalling refereeing against Manchester United for Villa. Penalty last year where Fernandes jumps onto Konsa and gets a pen, presumably for the audacity of wearing a red shirt and asking for one... Vidic in the League Cup final... Etc etc

Pretty much looked like Pogba had an arm across Luiz, Luiz had an arm on Pogba and then Pogba kicked himself before going down.  Don't think it was a dive but not sure kicking yourself is a penalty.

The defender clipped Pogba's left leg, which caused Pogba's left leg to kick the back of his right leg, tripping him. Have none of you people ever seen a tap-tackle in rugby? 

 

Nah, was a dive mate.

Worst of all was Pogba not being sent off for assaulting Mings elbow with his face.

From the clips I’ve seen it looks ridiculously slight, if that’s worth a game changing shot from 12 yards we have a problem in the game. 
 

As always the biggest problem is the inconsistency. We can probably all point to more stonewall calls this season that haven’t been given or even looked at that makes this foul look like nothing.

Haha, you can see what you want to see but this is a 'contact sport' not an 'any contact is a foul', sport.

Another pen....money well spent.

I kind of think the defender was a touch unlucky as he didn't clatter Pogba, and probably didn't intend to trip him, but it was the defender's little kick on Pogba that tripped him. Pogba was in control of the ball in the area and the defender's action caused him to fall. It's not as if Pogba threw himself to his floor, he couldn't have stayed on his feet. I understand that you are frustrated, but it's a clear penalty. It's not even soft.

 

Haven't any of you guys played football? I don't mean at any kind of decent level, just in the park or something? If someone trips you, that's a foul. It doesn't matter how hard they kick you. "Contact sport" as a excuse. Good grief.  :lol:

If it were Salah going down the comments sections would be out for blood. 

 

Soft yes, but ref gave a penalty and that is never getting overturned. I dislike Manchester United as much as the next person, but no arguments with Oliver awarding that. Besides if Villa could head a ball, they'd have won that game 4-2.

It's one of those ones that if it wasn't awarded I don't think VAR would have overturned it either.

 

I genuinely don't think most fans know how clever players are these days at winning penalties.

It’s really odd, reading this and looking at the clip, it’s like you’re talking about a separate incident, United are on a great run, doing well, but that is a soft call and they’ve had some luck and it’s ok to admit it, it doesn’t take anything away from the 12 men Ole put out today. 
 

And I played loads of football, bloody miss it.

Glad you watched the match now!

This isn’t an anti united thing, I’m glad there’s some competition at the top, I’m just bothered by the inconsistency shown for calls like this and I think Villa have a legitimate reason to be annoyed.

It looks to me, since the Christmas/New Year schedule that VAR isn't getting involved as much in those kind of decisions, if it isn't a clear and obvious error they aren't scrutinising it. Which is exactly how the rule should be implemented.

 

I haven't seen the incident.
