A bit of the shitness of old football which has persisted longer than it really needs to  - apart from Sian Massey, I think every single Premier League official is a white man.

 

Something's not right, there.

What happened to Uriah Rennie?

 

ETA : Apparently he retired. Time flies eh?

I liked their banners behind their goal in the first half. 

 

MODERN FOOTBALL KILLS EMOTION

 

FUCK VAR FUCK UEFA 

 

Can't remember if they were still there in the second half, didn't see much of that end of the pitch to be honest.

Bayern Munich have 7 Nation Army goal celebration music. Fuck me. That's league 2 level shitness.

Nah - it's a cultural thing.  Acceptable in Germany as a foreign song.

 

We very nearly had Live is Life as a chant for goodness sake.

 

As Aventus says, proper fans them.

I think VAR adds to the emotion rather than takes it away. A bit of suspense as the outcome is decided upon behind the scenes.

Agreed. Whats the fucking point. 

 

Keep it as it is, I like the idea of a world club championship for all continent champions. I wish it was more prestigious than it is because its nothing more than a friendly cup as it stands.

I very much doubt that clubs would get £50m each for taking part, but if FIFA could make that happen, it would be the absolute death knell of competition for clubs in those countries where that sort of money represents several years (maybe even a decade or more) of income.

 

Look at Scotland, where Celtic are the only ones who get any sort of big TV money for participation in the CL. That keeps them financially stronger than the rest in Scotland, and means that the others (except maybe Rangers if they get their act together) have no chance of winning the league and therefore participating in the next season's CL to earn more money. There are even more extreme examples of this monopolisation in other small European leagues. And that's before even mentioning the oil-fuelled financial disparity in the French league.

 

It also makes it more likely that the big European clubs will push for a Super League. UEFA have had to bend over backwards to appease them and prevent a breakaway, but FIFA's plans have merely added to UEFA's headache.

He went on to run a successful acid reflux remedy.

It doesn't even have to touch it,it just has to overhang it because of the shape of the ball. In the same way a ball has to cross the goal line fully as if viewing from above.

It wouldn't be so bad if the corner kick subsequently cleared the first man, but it seldom does. If corner kick takers devoted as much care to their technique as they do to the 'Ooh, look at me being sneaky' placement of the ball, maybe they'd actually create some chances.

It is bollocks and a totally modern thing.

 

Put the fucking thing in the quadrant and on the spot!

 

As gkmacca says below they fuck about with it too much.

 

I honestly hate it!

Not sure it is to be honest. The rule has been written in the same way for decades. I remember players doing it in the Irish League in the 1980s.

The problem is that most players are thick but observant, so when one of them sees another one do something like that, they all do it, even though they probably can't explain what advantage they think they're getting by doing it. It's like the ridiculous pointing at the heavens whenever they come on to the pitch and/or score a goal. Most of them aren't religious, and haven't recently lost a loved one, but they've seen others pointing so they start pointing. Ludicrous!
