    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    i just switched on a stream of the Everton game and immediately something tremendous happened. 64th minute, Hamez running through the middle with the ball, just fell over onto his face with Boone near him. i don’t know if @Caramac does requests but here’s hoping

    good/bad ads

    I barely watch any proper telly these days but the last week I’ve been watching the latest series of taskmaster on the channel 4 streaming player thing and it has adverts. the two kids badly singing oasis outside th coop can fuck off.

    Funny Pics that aren't worth starting a thread for

    I have a game on my phone called TwoWords which is a sort of scrabble rip off promoted by Susie Dent. like scrabble you have 7 tiles, and make a word, but unlike scrabble you only see the last word played by your opponent. my opponent played “Zoners”...

    First team to lose 2-0 in a match after being “handed a goal or more start”. get it on the side of the bus.

    What Constitutes Your Perfect Roast Dinner

    You don’t. Just the thyme is fine. Leave out the lemon entirely.

    The world of a woman.

    My missus called me yesterday to tell me she’d earned entry to her favourite thread on here. I feel reluctant to add her story on the basis that she had the self awareness to realise it belonged here, but it’s still on balance worthy, and it took someone explaining her stupidity to her to make her realise the magnitude of her error, so in it goes. she went to do the hat ever it is she does when she visits her horses each day. I don’t really know the ins and outs. they’re currently living outside without stables so she had washed her horses boots and was taking them back with her, but they weren’t fully dried yet. her plan was to put them over the air blowers in the car for half an hour while she did other stuff but didn’t want to leave the engine running so just turned the ignition to power the fan but not start the engine. 30 minutes later she returned as planned. obviously, her battery had died in this period, and equally obviously the cold air that had been running over the boots had failed to dry them.

    What Constitutes Your Perfect Roast Dinner

    That’s a good looking chicken, but I’m dead against the lemon shoved up its arse. No need for that at all.

    I don’t go on GoT too often but I still end up taking a look each Monday on our thread and this one has genuinely surprised me, seeing about a dozen pages added since our game with palace finished, and barely any of it being devoted to that game. instead it’s about them, and the media bias, and then an equivalent of live text commentary of SPOTY, with people betting on Henderson to win as an “insurance” against how they would feel when he inevitably did. insurance bets for SPOTY! Seriously! mental.

    Spurs (H) Premier League - 16/12/20 - 20:00

    That’s the first time I’ve actually been able to see the “foul” on Dier that VAR checked and I’m pissing myself. I knew there wasn’t a foul, you could tell, but I didn’t know he got pushed to the floor by the invisible man. That’s fucking hilarious. Seriously is. so it turns out VAR we’re just watching replays of Bobby’s header for their own enjoyment I guess, cause there was fuck all else to look at.

    Spurs (H) Premier League - 16/12/20 - 20:00

    For once, I simply celebrated. No hesitation at all. It was only when I heard the fans give out a second cheer that I realised there’s been a check so I’m glad the coverage didn’t let it be known.

    Diogo Jota

    I really don’t do this, but... that looks an awful lot like the kind of goal Lionel Messi scores. Just saying. whether we’ve got an injury crisis or not, we should leave this lad exactly where he is, playing regularly and getting amongst the goals, developing and learning way more than he will mostly on the bench here. He’s still only 17. He’s for the future, not for injury cover.

    VAR Thoughts?

    They haven’t, but some have (as shit as it is, they have got some things right, like the penalty vs wolves being overturned) so that will be the argument

    VAR Thoughts?

    Everything he’s said is right, but there’s no going back to accepting wrong decisions unfortunately. so the best we can hope for is to make more of the decisions more quickly by accepting more often the decision on the field if it’s close enough.

    VAR Thoughts?

    No solution, with or without VAR will stop United getting penalties. That cannot be fixed, there is no answer to that. As for the other example of the derby... go ahead, brazenly fail to apply the laws properly. Be my guest. But let the world hear your incompetence and be judged by it.

    VAR Thoughts?

    Totally agree with the principle. And no reason it couldn’t happen with games being played one at a time at this period to trial it, but once we’re back to multiple matches happening at 3pm, there simply isn’t enough refs to go around to make something like that work. It shouldn’t be impossible to have the same overall impact with just one VAR official though. Just ask that official to rewatch the even once or twice and form a judgement. They are supposed to be good enough to do the job on the field, so why not ask them to do the job from the TV as a second pair of eyes. doesn’t need the nonsense. Forget super slow mo, forget pixel width lines. 2 or 3 replays from different angles, if the decision looks wrong overturn it. If it doesn’t, leave it where it is. That by definition brings “clear and obvious” into it, as if you’re only seeing it a couple of times and being asked to make a judgement within a 60 second time limit (for example) you’re only gonna stick your neck out if it’s obviously a wrong decision. lots of soft pens given will stay given, lots of “coulda been” pens and I’ll stay not given. lots of tight offsides will stay on or off as called. blatant dives will be overturned, missed nasty challenges will be seen, clearly wrong offsides will be overturned. The clear and obvious error will be removed from the game. it’s too simple to happen, but it shouldn’t be hard. oh, and mic up the twats so we hear the decision making. After all, it should be nothing more than “looks like there might’ve been contact but can’t say for sure, so stay with your decision” or “it’s not clear which players arm it hit, stay with your decision” or “he’s clearly offside when the ball is played, disallow the goal”. shouldn’t be in any way controversial if you take out the controversial way they are calling decisions.
