    VAR shit show 19/20

    Well that's a pretty transparent effort to negate any discussion of the positive aspects and just lump them in with the bad and make it all bad. "You can have any colour you want as long as it's black" springs to mind. If that's the kind of thread you want, then I'll leave it for people shaking their fists at clouds to pat themselves on the back. I'll go and look at boobies on the GF.

    Fair enough. That'd be sad if VAR drove you away from supporting Liverpool.

    VAR checks all goals and will alert the ref is something isn't right. It also looks at possible penalties or red cards. That's a different thing altogether. Your complaint there is how the English FA has managed it. I totally agree with you that they've made a shite of it. One key issue being the part where they told refs not use to the monitors on the side of the pitch. Utterly crazy. Britain has to always feel it knows best, and they've done it here and made a mess of it. When they finally back down and use it as intended it'll get a lot better.

    They check everything. Every goal. Every possible penalty. There's tons going on in the background we never hear about that they get right. The problem we've got ourselves into now is when VAR corrects what would have been a gross error (goal given when it shouldn't be, penalty given or not given, etc) all the people losing the plot over it stay silent. Then there's a close call on an offside like the Wolves goal and they are out saying it's awful. There's no acknowledgment of when it does good. Like everything else these days, there's too much polarisation of opinion by people not wiling to look at things sensibly. However, in the spirit of sensible debate I am willing to drop the last two "9's" from my 99.999%. Yet the "excessive level of accuracy" is never debated on whether a ball has crossed the line or not? Its the same system with the same margin of error, yet we all look at that now famous photo of how close we were to scoring against Man City last season in a title defining game and we fully accept that incredibly tight call. City see it as the key moment they won the title and never shut up about it, and we see it as a key moment in not winning it? Yet maybe it did cross the line by an armpit hair? With offside it's offside or it's not. It's black and white. If you say we can have a level of gut feeling and/or common sense then imagine the explosion of heads when Anthony Taylor is on VAR and lets his "gut" rule out a Liverpool goal for offside? Everybody will be moaning that we have the tech so why not use it? If the margin of error is 2 cms, them make the line 2cms wide and only the feet judge offside. If any part of your foot is touching the line, then you're onside. But we can't have gut feeling or common sense coming into it. Of course you were scratching your head. Had that been 2 years ago and the lino had put his flag up during the move you'd have been scratching your head too. That's what happens when you're at the game. I absolutely agree with the first bit. The rules were devised in a 2D world. We now live in a 4D world. The rules need to catch up. However, I don't think the current version is shite. As I wrote above, I think everyone is happily ignoring all the good decisions and then just goes mental when a decision takes some time, or is tight like the Wolves one, or the Firmino one. It reminds me a bit of the bellends who hate Henderson. They'd sit quietly when he was bossing games left right and centre, and the second he played a bad pass, or even a backwards pass, they'd be tweeting like maniacs that Kieta has to start and Henderson is an embarrassment. (For the avoidance of doubt, I don't think people who hate VAR are bellends. I fully understand their arguments and agree with parts of what they say, I just think it can work really well with tweaks) Jesus Mook, when you say infantile. That's an utterly pathetic, childish, and just daft tweet. If that dope actually thinks VAR is "reluctantly" giving goals, then he needs to head off to the lower leagues where he can, completely without self awareness no doubt, bitch and moan about a bad decision screwing over his team. That's just a subjective view that we may have done that. The fact is, we had goal ruled out that was good. They had a goal given that was bad. CAR corrected those decisions, and in a game where we tried really hard, but could not get a second goal to take a bit of pressure off, it ended up deciding the result. That is fact. Of course in an alternative universe we may have won anyway, but in this one, VAR was key.

    It was offside. And 99.999% of the decisions given by VAR have been correct. The Firmino armpit nonsense is the exception. There is absolutely no question it is improving the decision making. It’s daft to suggest otherwise. The argument that it’s spoiling celebrating of goals, or whatever, is fair enough. I can see how it can spoil it for fans if they let it get on top of them.

    “Infantile hypothetical question”. Jesus mate, you need to calm down.

    Genuine question for the people saying we need to scrap it - If it was scrapped in December, would you have been ok with what happened in the Wolves game with no VAR? I.e. the initial decisions of our perfectly good goal being disallowed and the Wolves offside goal been given are allowed to stand and we lose? You think us losing the game would have been better than having VAR?

    Man City - the new bitters?

    Sorry. Us young types can’t help ourselves. I’m just a kid of the modern times.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    This is what being the best feels like. In the 1980s when we were the best, fans of other clubs were just as salty, it's just you couldn't see it as much due to it all being face to face. Then Man Utd had to deal with everyone saying they'd bought referees, etc. It what being brilliant feel like. That coupled with City fans thinking they were going to win 10 titles in a row and the CL, and then when they win their back to back title, all the talk is about us. It's a nightmare for them. Their efforts at trying to make #taintedtitle a thing are utterly hilarious and I hope they continue with it as the lack of self awareness around it just means it'll be thrown back in their gormless faces anyway.
  11. Great. Another "Techy nerds Forum" post where all I get is utterly unhelpful replies. Tech nerds are fucking useless.
  12. I'm a wee bit stuck. Work just handed me a new phone, an iPhone 11. They did all the work of keeping my apps on it, etc. But my music is now reduced to just a few albums that are in the itunes that's on my laptop. I've tried to download the music form my ipad to the iTunes on my laptop so I can then try and upload it to the phone, I can't seem to do that? Basically, I just want to have all the music that's on my ipad music app, on my new phone music app. Can anyone help?

    Miscellaneous fine alcohol

    Can I ask what the point is in having all this? You can’t ever hope, or want, to drink it all (or if you do then you’ve got a serious alcohol problem and will be dead in a year) so is it a collectors thing? Also, where do you keep it all?
