If you dive that many times in a game you are going to get a penalty eventually.  It’s in their clubs DNA.  It’s no coincidence that they do it so often with Fergies minion in charge.

It's astonishing! I mean they got 14 in the league alone! I think Matt Le Tissier took 49 penalties in his whole career, Fernandes will have taken that many for that lot inside 3 seasons if they carry on at that rate!

 

It can't be normal!

    Was it a penalty? Yes.

    Would you feel hard-done by as a defender? Yes!

    At first, I thought definite penalty. Then on second glance I thought Anthony Martial made a meal of it. I would be annoyed if I was that centre-back.

Fuck me, the mancs are playing, didnt know that!? Havent seen the penalty so cannot comment on its veracity. But 21 pens in a season, that's like 1 every 3 games, isnt it? And they've had more than their fair share of dodgey awards as well.

 

It's amazing Sadio and Mo can get blocked, chopped or hauled down and refs wave play on but so much fart on a united player and he goes down in the box, it's a pen!

 

One can hope next season the refs see through this shite and they get fuck all given.

In another potential blow to clubs loss of income, PL in dispute with Chinese rights holder over 160m payments.

The Premier League are locked in a legal dispute with their Chinese broadcast partners that could cost clubs hundreds of millions of pounds in lost television income.

Sportsmail can reveal that rights holders Suning Holdings have withheld a payment of £160 million that was due in March, with the Premier League retaliating by rejecting their offer for a three-year extension to the contract to cover the 2022-25 seasons.

The stand-off has potentially seismic ramifications for club finances as the Chinese TV deal is the most lucrative in the world outside the UK, with Suning agreeing to pay £564m for the current 2019-22 cycle for the right to broadcast Premier League games on their digital channel, PPTV.

That deal represented a 12-fold increase on the previous Chinese TV contract with Super Sports Media and the Premier League were budgeting for another significant rise for the next three years, which it was anticipated would help offset the flattening value of domestic TV rights.

The Premier League claim that Suning are in breach of contract following their failure to pay, which is believed to primarily have resulted from the sporting shutdown due to coronavirus but may also have a political dimension.

The clubs discussed the issue at last week’s shareholders’ meeting and are considering a range of options, including demanding an immediate payment, negotiating a revised payment schedule or terminating the deal.

Suning have developed into huge players in the global TV market in recent years having also bought the rights to the Champions League, FA Cup, La Liga and Bundesliga matches in China, as well as a controlling interest in Inter Milan four years ago.

The potential loss of income has been compounded by the Chinese government’s decision to cancel international sports events for the rest of the year, with the exception of Olympic trials, so the lucrative summer tours regularly undertaken by Premier League clubs have been scrapped this year.

There is also a political dimension to the dispute which is uncomfortable for the Premier League, who are in danger of being caught in the crossfire of escalating tensions between the British and Chinese governments.

In a stark message last month, the Chinese ambassador in London accused Britain of interfering in the country’s internal affairs and warned of consequences following Boris Johnson’s pledge to offer UK residency to up to 3 million Hong Kong residents.

The Prime Minister’s decision to block Chinese technology giant Huawei’s involvement in the UK’s new 5G network has also soured relations.

Over the past months, sports broadcasts by Chinese rights holders appear to have been dragged into such political disputes.

State broadcaster CCTV Sports caused a stir last month by switching their coverage of Liverpool’s 5-3 win over Chelsea to a less viewed digital channel.

According to lfchistory.net we have had 40 penalties since Klopp took over just under 5 years ago. We get 8 per year, I counted 31 for Utd since Solsjkaer took over. They will have more than 40 by his 2 year anniversary.  That must help.

    • Interesting.   I've been having a little think about who we could potentially target, outside the obvious and those we've already been linked with in the past. Buying from the Premier League appears highly unlikely for me, what with the astronomical fees that Premier League clubs will want in the Winter window.   I've also ruled out clubs playing in the Champions League, as they'll be less inclined to sell during the season, especially if they progress beyond the group stages.   Here are who I think could be intriguing potential targets that I like the look of:   Nikola Milenkovic at Fiorentina Kristoffer Ajer up at Celtic. I'd also consider a flyer on Connor Goldson at Rangers as he ticks the homegrown box, without the ridiculous price hike.   Milenkovic would the be most expensive of those 3, but with Fiorentina not in European competition this season, and in all likelihood they won't be again next season, the young Serb ticks a lot of boxes for me. Contracted to Florence club until the end of the 2022 season. I reckon he could be had in the region of £25-£30 million.   23 years old, but with good experience at International level having won 23 caps for Serbia already. He's a fraction taller than Virgil, so would help cover the loss of Virgil's aerial ability. He's also very comfortable playing at right back too, as he's played a number of games there for Fiorentina, so offers a touch of versatility if we ever did consider changing to a back 3, or if we ran into injury issues in that position.   Ajer is a player I've seen a fair bit of over the past couple of seasons, and one who to me needs a move to a better league to kick on. Again, he has some versatility about him, as he's very comfortable playing further up the park in a defensive midfield role.   Very composed on the ball, and another 6'5" lad who is more than decent in the air. Just 22 years old and is contracted to Celtic until the end of the 2022 season. Quite surprised that he didn't move on in the Summer, as there were plenty of rumours floating around that he wanted to move on from Celtic Park. A fee of £12-£15 million would be more than enough to secure his signature.   As for the flyer in Connor Goldson, I considered homegrown players outside the Premier League, and barring a few young potentials, Goldson ticks a number of boxes.   He's 27, so is more experienced than those above in terms of age, and has played in all tiers of the Professional Leagues in England. He's also a leader, having captained Rangers on a number of occasions.    A touch smaller than Virgil, he's still very good in the air, though he lacks the ball playing ability in comparison with the others. Again, he's contract until the end of the 2022 season, so I reckon he could be snapped up for £10 million at the most. A big plus for Goldson is his homegrown status, and I reckon he'd jump at a move down South to give any aspirations he has of playing International football that little more of a push.   I've gone off to Squawka to grab their comparison matrix to compare the domestic seasons of the 3 above, as well as Caleta-Car that Ne Moe mentioned.   https://www.squawka.com/en/comparison-matrix/?compare=hU63Iyjx1EX1vtv0ZtyK7  
    • It's like Rocky blaming Spider Rico for damaging his brain.   If his injury was that that bad he played 85 minutes and almost set up a goal with his cross. Didn't look like a player who was injured or struggling after a nasty challenge. 
    • A happy little celebration dance, because he's got 100% confidence in Fabinho preventing the goal.
    • This guy makes a pretty compelling case to take a look at Duje Caleta-Car.   Marseilles already agreed to sell him for 20m to West Ham in the summer, he rejected the move, but at least the price is reasonable. Only 24, but best of all, he's a great passer, which is something we're sure to miss with Virgil out. Also wins a good percentage of his duels, a bit of a poor man's Virgil in his style if you'll forgive the comparison.   One to keep an eye out for, maybe.
