Re: WEEKEND FOOTBALL - 8/10 NOVEMBER 2019

Yep. A combination of refs thinking "leave it to VAR" and the VAR refs not wanting to overrule the on field ref means that fewer and fewer things will be given. Well, at least we'll rule out plenty of perfectly good goals for pathetically marginal offsides. Job done.

Re: Kit Thread 19/20

You know how we're always posting striped Puma kits and hoping we get something similar? Look how attractive Xisco looks these days:

Re: 25pts by New Year?

We suit the counter attack, so away games and teams like Bournemouth definitely work for us, but I'd like to think that as the front three get a bit more co-ordinated we can attack better when we need to at home. Even more so if the Longstaffs can get established so we can start to play a bit more p...

Re: Match day thread - NUFC v Bournemouth

The communication was clear though, even through the knackered PA in the East Stand. It's not the first time we've clapped a minutes silence when we've been told it's a silence. Just be silent. It isn't that hard. We do it for 90 minutes after that...

Re: Match day thread - NUFC v Bournemouth

We were clearly told we'd hear the last post, then the ref would blow his whistle to start the minute silence, then another to end it. What actually happened was the last post, then an inexplicable round of applause from some fuckwits, then the refs whistle triggered another load of fuckwits to assu...

Re: Match day thread - NUFC v Bournemouth

I think it's far too early to be thinking about who's better, but I do think that what I'd hoped would happen is starting to. Rafa left us in a pretty good place, with a system that worked for our squad. He left to get a better deal, he wasn't sacked because what he was doing wasn't working, so ther...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2019)

And we don't need someone specifically to ping 70 yard balls from the edge of our area when we have Schar and Lejeune. Even today he took the ball off Fernandez there only to play a ball s***ter than the one Fernandez would have played...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2019)

Not for me Clive. Ki looked shaky last time he was in, but at least he can perform the role of a central midfielder even if he's having a bad game.

Re: Weekend Football 02 NOV

That kind of depends on your definition of where the armpit starts, it's pretty much the side of your chest. Or in fact someone without an arm probably still has an armpit. Stupid wording from the Premier League really.

Re: Weekend Football 02 NOV

I'm not sure about that, you'd only end up with the same argument but on the back end of attacking players. From a VAR perspective the obvious solution to take account for the fact the tech is obviously not good enough is to make the lines thicker to build in some tolerance. If the attackers line ov...

Re: Match thread - West Ham v NUFC

Next Saturday becomes massive, win that and we're in a great spot. For all the panic so far there's been a lot of strange results this season, if anyone gets even a small degree of consistency they'll be safe. As far as today West Ham looked rubbish, and ASM and Almiron scared the hell out of them a...

Offside is offside. Good decision.
Only if you have any faith whatsoever in that wobbly red line.
