    • The wording around "clear and obvious error" I think needs to change as well. At the minute you've got referees in the VAR room who don't want to overrule their colleagues on the field because in doing so, they're specifying that they've made a clear and obvious error - which sounds pretty damning (like it's a massive fuck up), and as it could easily enough be them on the receiving end the next week they don't like publicly embarrassing each other like that. At the same time the "clear and obvious error" creates a nice line in ambiguity which allows them not to get involved - so last night's farce can be explained away with a "yes it probably isn't a penalty but I can't say for absolute certain that it definitely, definitely isn't, so there's not quite enough evidence to call out my colleague as having made a clear and obvious error. A minor error at most, but not a clear and obvious one." Endless cycle of non-accountability.   Change the wording around what can and cannot be challenged to make a decision reversal less emphatic, and have specialist VAR officials who don't have to worry about VAR making them look like a tit on the field next week.   And in an ideal world, if the technology allows it (I'm no expert, this is just a thought), set the VAR room up so that the officials don't know the score or general match situation, and show them some sort of anonymised decision footage where they can't see faces or kits (as I say, know idea if this is even remotely feasible!). It'd add to their credibility if fans thought that they were making decisions in a completely neutral environment without any bias - conscious or unconscious - having even the slightest impact on their decision-making.
    • Breaking News ;    Man utd have picked Jon Moss to referee the last game of the season against Leicester 
    • Agree with this. I don't think they win a league next season, but credit to them they are smashing teams, albeit shit ones. I much rather them being the comedy act they were a few months ago than what they are now.   They have goals galore in their team against 70 percent of the teams in the league. That makes them dangerous. I find it hard to fear Martial and Pogba because they are self serving shithouses that could fuck off at the drop of a hat. Rashford is a really good player and Greenwood is bloody outstanding. Fernandes is really really good and is the player they have lacked for years.    Right now they remind me of us in 2014. I think that doesn't beat us or City to a title, but if we get an injury crisis and have a 10-12 point drop off and City are in the shit with not being able to sign any world class players, then who knows thet could be a real threat.
    • certainly broke the mould when they made Ray Kennedy. in the career that he had. but he was like all the real great players, they seem to have loads of time, play at their own pace, work for the team as a unit and are deadly when it matters.      
    • I don’t care if he has to do it on crutches, he’s doing the dance and lifting that trophy.
