Football Thread 2020/2021


Recommended Posts

Well done Burnley, they spoiled Liverpool's home winning streak last season and have destroyed that long unbeaten run - and there can't be any complaints really, Liverpool were awful. Again.

Fair goal for same reason as Kane 8-)

Maybe sign a striker?

With David Sullivan pulling the purse strings? HAHAHAHA :(

 

Wouldn't matter anyway. Soucek got the bottom of his foot kicked and bundled over in the penalty box against West Brom. Apparently that isn't worthy of a penalty, unless you're West Ham playing Liverpool earlier in the season and Masuaku kicks the bottom of Salah's foot..:sherlock:

it's almost like the concept of xG isn't total bollocks - Liverpool got 7 goals against Palace from thin air almost, then can't score in 80+ shots in the next 4 games

 

normally takes longer to revert to the mean but illustrates a point.

Leeds have signed a new pitch from Spurs for £300k. Great transfer business!

 

I wouldn't even buy a pitch off Levy, it'll be one of the spare astroturf NFL ones they can't use with Manitowoc Honey Badgers emblazoned all over it

To clear up the Mings offside and various discussion, this is from an actual professional level referee.

 

Quote

If I may attempt to clear up the offside thingy discussed on this thread:

 

  • It is not an offence to be in an offside position
  • Nowhere in the Laws does it mention 'phases of play' or 'ball has to be played forward'
  • If a defender deliberately plays the ball (as Mings did) then an attacker in an offside position when the ball is last played by a teammate can't be penalised
  • It is a case of 'deliberate play' vs 'deflection' - so an attacker playing the ball off an opponent (deflection) and the ball then going to another attacker in an offside position constitutes an offence
  • If Rodri was stood very close to Mings and challenged for the ball from an offside position then he would be penalised for interfering with an opponent
  • VAR/officials decided Rodri was far enough away not to have interfered or impacted Mings' ability to control/play the ball

 

I think that the last two are the most relevant.

Shane Long seems to fly under the radar but he’s always been a diving prick. What is VAR doing if it’s not going back to call stuff like that? Pathetic.


He gets the ball and there is contact. In the “seen them given” category.

Hooray, the Swiss Challenge League is back on track! And FcSchaffhausen have proudly announced that they want to be a contender for the first two places, having brought in a couple of replacements. They now have a strong team and should, with a bit of luck, have a chance at going up.

 

 

 

 

They are 0-2 behind after 16 minutes :doh:
