Enjoyed the England vs Wales game. It wasn't a classic, but I couldn't take my eyes off it.

 

I thought England played quite well actually, certainly in defense. I also thought it was a try at the end, but could see why it wasn't given as it was close. But Wales deserved their victory, mainly because of that try which was the one bit of brilliance in the match really.

 

But I think the Englkish replacements changed the game. England were winning and then they brought on Stevens, Youngs and Lawes. All of them were poor and cost England the match. God knows what has happened to Youngs he was brilliant when he first burst on the scene, but now he is looking like a liability. Lawes shouldn't get the ball wripped off him like that which led to the last Wales try and Stevens kept giving away penalties.

 

But there were positives for England, although the better team won - just.

Was never going to be a try with a Scottish official looking at it.

Well done Wales you deserved it.

 

Wales had a try ruled out against Ireland because no angle of the camera could prove the ball had touched the ground, them the rules mate.

 

I though Priestland was very poor today, on numerous occasions he could have cost us massively! Williams was my MOTM but Warburton was also fantastic.

Priestland was sloppy today, decision making wasn't at it's finest. Colossal performance by Warburton and I thought the front row all had a good showing too. Leigh Halfpenny rules too.

A few years back there was another iffy decision by a Scots ref on a penalty that gave Wales the 5 nations costing England the title. That's all I'm saying.

Not sure what incident you are referring to tbh, but you can't say todays was a conspiracy ffs, if a try can not be seen how can it be given?!

I thought it was pretty clear it was a try.

 

But I am not too bothered as Wales deserved to win the match IMO.

Based on what? No camera angle was able to show the ball being touched.

I'm not saying it wasn't I try, but at the same time I won't say it was, the right decision was made. (I said the same when it happened to us against Ireland)

 

Don't agree with you saying we deserved it tbh, thought England were the better team overall, I'm not complaining though haha.

We didn't deserve it based on the last 10/15 minutes.

 

I reckon it probably was a try but no conclusive video footage meant it was never going to be given.

There was one angle where it looked like the player held it up. Then there was another angle where it showed the player ground(ed) the ball. Then there was another angle that showed both, although you couldn't see the grounding as the players were in the way - but what that angle showed was the player was clearly over the try line when the grounding took place and after he was held up.

 

That is what I saw, but I can see why the fourth official didn't give it as it was the easy decision to say 'not conclusive' even though I think it showed it was a try.

 

England had patches where they were the better team. But it was fairly even until England made the changes and they made individuals errors that cost them the game and Wales took advantage of those errors.

Warburton didn't deserve to not be a winning player today. He was immense.

 

It was an even game, but probably in the end, just about the right result.

 

Im English by the way. But my bro moved to Wales 14 years ago, met a local, got married and whacked out 3 sprogs. Hence i like to beat the welsh. But today, they probably shaded it.

I don't think Strettle grounded the ball tbh. I'm pleased we lost in a way because we can now carry on the rebuilding job without the pressure of being a team expected to win every game.

And if i had a conscience my drooling over someone ten years my junior would be a problem. He is mighty fine.

They showed a shot that the TMO didn't get earlier. He definitely had the ball grounded before getting pushed back the other way.

 

Ah well, harsh but you can respect why they made the decision they did.

More anti English decisions from the refs and TMO....and England were the home team. Simply unbelievable.....

 

As usual the Welsh are being small time.....as far as I'm concerned Wales didn't win.

Cheating bastards..

I always thought Wales would win this, and so it turned out. England can be heartened by a mighty defensive performance, whilst Wales still have to ask themselves do they want to be as good as they could be, because I still think they believe a bit too much of their own publicity, they arent all that yet, but they could be, England have a way to go, we knew that, but this welsh team could go and win a World Cup if they want it enough.

Wahhhh, Wahhhh, Wahhh.

 

Ref gave most things in favour of the attacking side, especially when considering fouls given for players being off their feet in the ruck, both sides were penalised for that when defending but not attacking.

    • Interesting but not particularly surprising to me the demographics in that article matching up with The demographics in a similar report on whether a European super league is a good idea.   In both, younger fans; and Chelsea and Arsenal fans think a super league is good, and so is VAR.   in both, older; and Liverpool fans think VAR is bad and so would be a European super league.
         
    • Yes, couldn't name John Mclaughlin. 
    • I might be completely off here but I always got the impression Lampard and Terry didn’t really like Mourinho in a similar way Carragher and Gerrard didn’t particularly like Benitez probably because it’s a lot harder to enjoy playing for negative shithouse managers.  The difference between the two situations was that there were plenty of rumours of Carragher and Gerrard not liking him in their playing days and playing a part in getting him out but since they’ve retired they’ve been up his arse. There was never anything like that at Chelsea but you get the feeling since Lampard and Terry retired that neither are or were particularly found of Mourinho and don’t speak to him either.

Liverpool fans may agree with their captain when you look at the stats. Jurgen Klopp’s side have had more goals disallowed by VAR than any other Premier League team in the 2020-21 season so far. The poll shows just 28% of Liverpool fans believe VAR is being applied consistently, as do 31% of Manchester United fans, compared to 39% of Arsenal and Chelsea fans. And just a quarter of Liverpool fans feel VAR has made football more exciting.  The FA Cup third-round tie between Brighton and Crystal Palace on 8 January 2018 was the first domestic game to use VAR, and it was subsequently used in one Carabao Cup semi-final and the Carabao Cup final between Arsenal and Manchester City. The Premier League introduced the technology for the 2019-20 season. In July of this year, Fifa took full control of VAR from the sport’s lawmakers, the International Football Association Board (Ifab). Since then, there has been an increase in referees using pitch-side monitors for goals, red cards and penalty decisions. VAR continues to rule on factual decisions and advise on matters of subjectivity. Premier League fans still to be convinced Scottish football authorities have discussed introducing VAR, but the technology has not yet been used in professional league football there. VAR was introduced in the German Bundesliga and Italy’s Serie A in 2017 and Spain’s top flight La Liga and the French Ligue 1 in 2018. As with those European leagues, changes have been made in England to try to adapt and improve the system. But the poll showed more than half (51%) of Premier League fans feel VAR is applied inconsistently. However, Premier League chief executive Richard Masters said earlier this year that VAR was delivering on the “principal reason” for its introduction in improving the accuracy of decision-making. “In key match incidents we are up to 94% accuracy with officials, 97% with their assistants, so we are seeing an impact on results and a positive impact on the league table,” he said. What they say about VAR Former Manchester United defender and Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville: “[Referees] look like they have been programmed like robots. They are briefed like mad, they are programmed to the nth degree, they are frightened to death.” Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho: “We’re going in a direction that’s really bad for the beautiful game, the game that everybody fell in love with.” Former Tottenham and Newcastle midfielder and Match of the Day pundit Jermaine Jenas: “The players and managers have been unbelievable in mentally getting over these hurdles that VAR has thrown at them. It’s supposed to help the game, and it’s making it far worse.” Savanta ComRes interviewed 5,476 UK adults aged 18+ online between 20 and 24 November 2020, 2,100 of whom qualified as football fans for the purpose of our survey according to Savanta-gathered data on football fans and their demographic profile. Data were weighted to be demographically representative of UK adults 18+ by age, gender, region and social grade. Savanta ComRes is a member of the British Polling Council and abides by its rules. The full poll is published here       “I’d rather play without it.” “Ruining the game.” “I don’t know the rules any more.” The video assistant referee (VAR) was brought in to improve football. But Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson, Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish and Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne have all spoken out about controversial decisions made by VAR recently. And it seems football fans are also less than convinced by VAR in its second full season in use in English football. In a poll for BBC Sport, only a third of football fans across the UK said they believe VAR has made football better. The poll of 2,100 fans, carried out by Savanta ComRes, shows that while 30% of fans think it has improved the game, 44% of fans actually think it hasmade football worse. While most fans are now given the option of seeing VAR decisions on screen – whether in the stadium on watching on TV – almost half of fans said they believe the introduction of VAR has made football less exciting. The poll also shows: 36% of supporters aged 18-34 believe VAR has made football better, compared with 29% of fans aged 55 and over. 59% of fans aged 55 and over said VAR is making football worse. Arsenal fans (44%) are more likely to believe that VAR has made football better, while 37% of Chelsea fans, 34% of Liverpool fans and 32% of Manchester United fans felt it had improved the game. Younger fans are split on whether VAR is being applied consistently (35%) or inconsistently (33%) by referees. Controversial VAR decisions West Ham v Aston Villa, 30 November – Villa manager Dean Smith said VAR “frustrates everyone but there’s nothing we can do about it” after Ollie Watkins’ late strike was ruled out for offside because of the position of his arm  Manchester United v West Brom, 21 November – “I’m very disappointed with the decisions from the referee,” said Baggies manager Slaven Bilic after referee David Coote reversed a penalty decision, ruling Bruno Fernandes had touched the ball in a challenge on Conor Gallagher Crystal Palace v Leeds United, 7 November – Patrick Bamford said VAR is “ruining football” after his equaliser for Leeds is ruled out because his outstretched, pointing arm is offside Everton v Liverpool, 17 October – Reds manager Jurgen Klopp said he “doesn’t understand these decisions” after VAR fails to review a challenge from Jordan Pickford that injured Virgil van Dijk, while Jordan Henderson’s late goal was ruled out for offside against Sadio Mane
