This is like 2 questions. VAR is great but the rules are all over the place. No logic to them.
This.

VAR is great but the new handball rule is a joke.

Re: Coronavirus

I live in Wolverhampton so from Tuesday no going to other people’s houses.

Re: NUFC Claim PIF Takeover Rejected by PL, PL Disagree

Great article on this from George Caulkin, Chris Waugh & Matt Slater. Right up until Tuesday, they expected a yes — again. When Wednesday rolled around, it was a no — again. After weeks of political pressure, painstaking negotiations and government involvement, Mike Ashley and the consortium attempt...

Re: The Callum Wilson Thread

Yeah Joelinton doesn't deserve the 9 shirt. Obviously he shouldn't have got it in the first place but taking it off him might ease some of the pressure on him and allow him to relax more. When you're wearing the 9 shirt you're expected to and have to score goals. Joelinton doesn't do that. Hopefully...

James Rodriquez confirmed to Everton for 20m. 2 year deal with the option of a third.

Would have been a good signing 6 years ago.

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2020)

If we sign Lewis, Fraser and Wilson we'll have a decent team, with a bit of depth. Even if Ritchie does go. 1st choice 11: Dubravka Manquillo Lascelles Fernandez Lewis Hayden Hendricks Fraser Almiron StMaximin Wilson Back up 11: Gellespie Krafth Lejeune Clark Dummett SLongstaff Shelvey Murphy MLongs...

He .ade numerous mistakes leading to goals against Boro the other day and that today was poor as well. Surely Gillespie cant possibly be worse or even whoever t...

Oh i forgot international duty. Hence the missing players
Krafth and Hendricks are the only players we have on international duty.

The rest are missing through injury. Apart from Lascelles who is suspended and Ritchie who is being sold.

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2020)

Apparently we are the only club to still have members of staff on furlough. No wonder we haven't bought anyone if we can't even afford to pay our staff thier comparatively modest wages. In our defence at least as far as I know we haven't sacked a load of non football staff like Arsenal have. I agre...

The game next Monday against Boro has been cancelled. Warnock says it was us that called it off due to having too many injuries.

Looks like Messi is available. Hopefully he's sick of having all that money and will instead want to play for a lifetime supply of Sports Direct mugs.

In fairness Chopra has been tweeting hints for ages, everyone just thought he was ITK about PIF but it sounds like he knew that it wouldn't go through and they were waiting to step in. Could be legit. I'm not doubting the legitimacy of the bid just the long term role of Chopra Really? There is abso...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2020)

Luuk Dr Hong scores everywhere that he has players that create chances. Playing at number 10 with no players ahead or behind him probably isn't his best position... Not really. At Seville he's been poor. Only 8 in 45 (all competitions). His record at Mounchengladbach was exactly the same, 8 in 45 (...

Re: Toon Takeover Thread - PL Release Statement

The concerning thing about this bid Chopra is fronting (aside from it being fronted by Chopra ofcourse) is that they've already announced it in the media before anything has even been agreed. Why can't a group just follow normal practice and not leak anything to the media? The first we should hear a...
