What unprepossessing bedfellows we tolerate when Everton are doing well - their start is becoming mildly irritating.

 

Oh well, we'd better bollock Arsenal.

Sorry fellas, can't still get over this Scum robbery of Brighton today. Don't Brighton have a case for appeal to higher authorities on the basis that the penalty was given well after the game was officially ended? I just keep wondering.

The issue with the Utd game was all the things before the penalty including the ref not blowing the whistle an age before they even got the corner.  That Pen reversal, Var assistant telling the ref that Connolly played for the pen.  Surely the ref should be able to view the incident again without some tit in his ear influencing him.

Apart from being miffed at the mancs scoring a last second winner, I don’t have a problem with it. The foul took place before the final whistle and given it an absolute exceptional circumstances, I think the decisions should have been given. 
 

Put it this way, if it were us and we hadn’t been given the penalty, I’d have been livid. 
 

Also, knock off “scum” comments, we aren’t Leeds fans.

Who cares. They’ll get what they deserve over the season. And the longer they keep their current manager the better.

This is something the football authorities should have foreseen. In fact they did to some extent and I think it was applied in one of our games? Play continued without a natural break for about 6 minutes when VAR told the ref (atkinson?) to stop the game and award a penalty.

 

If VAR were looking into a pen for united deep into added time, why didnt they communicate this to the ref and tell him to either stop the game while the decision was made or, told him not to blow the final whistle?

 

There's something incongruous with awarding a penalty after the ref has supposedly blown the final whistle and Im not saying that because it was the Mancs. I didnt watch that game. Would FIFA allow that to happen after extra time in a World Cup final with the scores level before the penalty shoot out? Think we know the answer to that one!

There was an incident last season in Germany (it might have been a German Cup game) where one team committed a foul just before the ref blew up for half time. The VAR team were reviewing it (it wasn't one of those obvious fouls that all the players crowd the ref over) as the players went back to the changing rooms. After the ref had watched it, he had to call all the players back out and give the penalty as the incident had happened before he'd blown the half time whistle. The players came back out, the penalty was taken and scored, then they all went back inside for half time. The side who'd conceded the penalty weren't happy!

Sheffield may be in trouble given the run of fixtures they’ve got coming.

 

If they can't score against Leeds, they could well be in strife.

Fuck off Newcastle you shit bastards. Kane will be claiming that he deliberately deflected that of Moura and it’s his goal.

    • I’m actually none the wiser as to what the ref/VAR is meant to do in the pen situation though and nobody seems to have addressed it.  If the ref awards a free kick but it’s in the box (it’s debatable whether it was but let’s say it is) but then on review isn’t a foul what does the referee actually do?  They don’t overturn free kicks do they do does he just give a drop ball or something?   The clear and obvious thing is a nonsense and always was.  Dean thinks he gets the man first and it’s understandable but on review he clearly gets the ball first and I’m not even sure he touches the man so it’s not a penalty.  It’s not like it’s a judgement call.  It’s just not a foul and just more sheer incompetence.  The reason it’s continuing is because they aren’t admitting the mistakes and trying to address why they happened so they don’t happen again.  It’s just various excuses and trying to justify why it was the right decision.  If the way the VAR rules are set up stop the right decision getting made then they need to be changed until they are right.
    • My impression is, for the last two games in the absence of VVD, we have dropped our high line 10 yards. Understandable but it does mean we cannot suffocate teams to the same degree and both Ajax and Sheff Utd have been able to find their front players, in space, quite easily.   The higher line has me with my heart in my mouth but the current tactic also gives me the jitters when fairly ordinary teams can advance up the park and keep possession so easily. Contrast that with the Chelsea and Arsenal games where they often struggled to get out of their own half.   If we continue to play like this we will need 3 dogs in midfield, especially against the better teams
    • Top, top “pointy little face” analysis there, Dave.
    • An announcement from Liverpool on the move is expected soon, and This Is Anfield understands that that will include confirmation of a naming rights partner for the Kirkby base.  
    • Report by Dave Usher   Nice little win this. It won't be one that we remember when we look back on the season but these are the kind of results that all successful teams need. Another one where we were able to dig in, battle, overcome setbacks and come away with the points. That should be three of those wins in a week as we won the derby too even if the record book says otherwise.   This was tough. We didn’t play as well as we can and we know from last season that Sheffield United are difficult opponents. It was either Klopp or Ljinders who described the home win over them as tactically our best performance of the season or something. Can’t remember exactly what they said but Klopp is always praising Wilder and his team and he was complimentary again after this.   They did make it a slog for us as they work hard for each other, they’re well organised and they’re direct. It helped that they were given a penalty for fuck all too of course.   I’ll start with that so I can get it out of the way. I don’t want to get bogged down with refs and VAR and all that shit again, so I’ll keep this brief. It wasn’t a foul and although it was arguably just close enough to the line to be classed as a penalty, it wasn’t a clear error by Mike Dean so why was that overturned?   Have they changed the whole ‘clear and obvious’ thing now and not told us? Or is this about the refs putting us in our place after we dared question what happened in the derby? Again, it really felt like that decision was made on the basis of what the ref wanted to do, because if he hadn't given a penalty would anyone have questioned that?   If Dean had pointed to the spot there isn't enough to overturn it and give a free-kick, but the same logic applies the other way, surely? The clear error was awarding a foul in the first place, not where it was adjudged to have taken place.   Fabinho got the ball but we’re told that VAR only looked at where the incident took place and not whether he got the ball or not. What the fuck? What's going on here? Can they not look at two things at the same time? It's the same bullshit as last week.    Just tell Mike Dean to take his pointy little face and bald head over to the touchline to have a look for himself. Actually there’s probably no point as he doesn’t seem the type to go “yeah I’ve got that one wrong” does he, and he’d probably spend ten minutes just watching replays of himself blowing the whistle and pointing, the preening little bald Tranmere fuck.     This is just a teaser, click to view the full report   Please note that Match Reports are only available to website subscribers.
