Re: The official VAR thread

His having a laugh. Of coarse,he will say that.It`s like a Tory saying we are doing a fantastic job. :oops: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/50380641 Actually,it's like a pilot completing a successful landing while being in a flight simulator bolted to the ground and giving himself a pat on the...

Re: Next manager

I really think we should stick with Pellegrini , unless their something seriously wrong with him , it certainly would explain a lot . Or something at the club is going on in the background that he is not happy with . How can we get rid of a manager who in Spain, lead Villarreal to the semi-finals o...

Re: Lanzini out .....

Not a big deal. He's been missing so far this season anyway. That affords the opportunity for Pablo Fornals to fizz and twirl in his absence, along with missing chums Messrs Wilshere and Sanchez. Opposition midfields will have a confusing battle on their hands. That's why Mr P is so damned chilled.

Re: V.A.R

The offside is the one I actually don't have a problem with, if you are a millimetre offside, you're offside, if you are a millimetre onside, you're onside, its not open to interpretation, its not a matter of opinion, you're offside or not. Not sure that's accurate. If the ball is a millimetre stil...

Re: Roberto

He's a funny goalkeeper. He can make saves and quick reaction blocks but can't punch a ball or catch one. Since he is 33 and has had 8 clubs he has done well to continue his trade for as long as he has. It's fucking odd isn't it? As if he can react quickly when the ball is fired quickly at him but ...

Re: Sacked in the morning ?

I fear his race is run. I’d forget all this West Ham way bollox and get a Chris wilder character in, hard to beat, takes no shit and maybe gives you that steel needed to compete for the top 10. Pelli is too rigid in his system and frankly it feels like the players have lost confidence in themselves...

Re: Roberto

Anyone get the feeling that he was signed through the mates system like the fat one and his mate the agent used to do business? Doesn't matter if they are next to useless as long as everyone involved gets a nice earner. Wouldn't have been in the spotlight if Fab never got injured. Mr P knows all ab...

Re: Sacked in the morning ?

They won't sack him.They will reason it's a temporary blip and trust performances will improve.

The team sit 2 points off eighth in a 10 team congested table. They won't panic yet.
