    VAR shit show 19/20

    Yes. However I'd like to see the football authorities work on improving decision making in real time. I would accept that humans are fallible and that some mistakes will be made.

    VAR shit show 19/20

    Agree with that. For match goers, the celebratory cheer of scoring has scoring has become more like being awarded a penalty. You have a chance of a goal. Passion is being eroded from football.

    Spurs (A) Premier League 11/1/2020 - 17:30

    I don't agree with this bit mate. Perhaps it's the word phenomenal. He really isn't. I agree that he is no angel - he has wound up players like Messi, Rafinha, Ayoze, Davies etc. Perhaps that really would cause us to despise him. However a phenomenal shithouse would fake a facial injury when they were clearly hit on the shin; they would get injured off the the field and do seven rolls to get lying back on the pitch to waste time; they would hound the ref looking for players to be booked. He needs to up his game.
  4. I've been impressed by Grealish. I think he would get into our midfield on ability. I think he would "make our midfield better" - depending on who he was picked alongside. He'd need to develop into a mentality monster first. Would he be our best midfield player - probably not. This doesn't mean I think we should sign him. There is much more than ability that differentiates between a player who is good at football and a great player. He may be able to develop his mentality he may not. I'll trust Klopp to call who is best to bring in.

    Top 20 revenue by clubs in 2018-19

    Here.s the other text from the BBC article... https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/51092320 Barcelona generated more money than any other club in Europe for the first time last season, a study has found. The Spanish club earned £741.1m in revenue in the 2018-19 season according to Deloitte's Football Money League. Real Madrid swapped places with Barca and fell to second on £667.5m, with Manchester United third on £627.1m. The Reds Devils are said to be "at risk of losing the position as the Premier League's highest revenue generating club for the first time" next year. In the 23rd edition of Deloitte's Football Money League the gap between first and second (83m euros/£73.6m) has never been bigger. Barca's substantial jump in year-on-year revenue is put down to the club taking charge of its own merchandising and licensing activities. Dan Jones, partner in the Sports Business Group at Deloitte, commented: "Barca is a clear example of a club adapting to changing market conditions, reducing the reliance on broadcast revenue and focusing on growing revenues within its control." Deloitte expect Barca to remain number one in next year's standings and state the Catalan club is on course to achieve its stated ambition to be the first to generate revenue of over one billion euros in years to come. What is wrong at Old Trafford? Deloitte state there are "many ways of examining the relative wealth or value of football clubs" but its revenue metric is extracted directly from the financial statements of the clubs in question. Money from broadcast deals is the most significant to clubs, comprising 44% of total revenue. Manchester United's year-on-year revenues rose from £589.8m to £627.1m but forecasted revenue for 2019-20 is between £560-£580m, partly because the club failed to qualify for the Champions League. Deloitte said those figures "would likely see the Red Devils fall to their lowest ever Money League position in next year's edition." "This could also put the club at risk of losing its position as the Premier League's highest revenue generating club for the first time in Money League history," Deloitte added. Sam Boor, senior manager in the Sports Business Group at Deloitte, said: "The impact of participation and performance in Uefa club competitions on revenue is evident in London and the North West, with the rise of Liverpool, Manchester City and Spurs driven by reaching the Champions League knockout stages. The relative decline of Arsenal is a direct result of not participating in the competition for a second consecutive season, a fate that may also befall Manchester United." Spurs rule London The Premier League makes the biggest contribution to the top 20 of the Money League, with eight teams featured. Tottenham achieved its highest-ever position of eighth by increasing revenue 21% to £459.3m. Deloitte said the jump was due to increased revenue from commercial sources and broadcasters after a season in which Spurs reached the Champions League final and moved into their new stadium. Spurs are now generating more money than any other club in London, with Chelsea ninth overall and Arsenal now outside the top 10 in 11th as a consequence of going consecutive seasons without qualifying for the Champions League. The Ronaldo effect Cristiano Ronaldo joined Juventus for £99.2m in July 2018 Deloitte's study does not include revenue from player transfer fees. The top 20 generated a record £8.2bn of combined revenue in 2018-19, an increase of 11% on the previous year. Only Olympique Lyonnais - ranked 17th - and SSC Napoli - ranked 20th - broke into the top 20 after the 2018-19 campaign. Italian champions Juventus moved back into the top 10 and Deloitte said the arrival of forward Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid "increased Juventus' commercial appeal". Ronaldo has more Instagram followers than Real Madrid and Barcelona combined. "As a result, Juve saw an uplift in commercial revenue in part due to an increase in brand visibility in 2018/19," Deloitte said. "The club also increased revenue from merchandise sales as a result of signing the marquee player."

    Worst you've ever felt after a defeat?

    I don't really wanna go through this thread - it will surround my mind with negative stuff. I like to think of the great things. The positive stuff. The best thing is those times where our goal just makes you go mad. You momentarily lose your mind in joyous celebration and you find that you are hugging - and being hugged by - the other folk around you. Love it. (BTW, I mean at the match....not in Curry's).

    VAR shit show 19/20

    One of the many things wrong with its current implementation is the way it is being used to check if the ball so much as brushed against the arm of an attacking player. It isn't even that they suspect it did. No players have appealed. The ref hasn't requested it. And the glance may not have even change the flight of the ball in the attacking player's favour. None of that matters they just go trying to find a reason to disallow the goal. Its crazy shit. The handball rule is partly to blame - how it can mean different things depending on whether you are an attacker or a defender - but its still VAR shit.

    After the first goal I didn't expect the Villa defence to actually do anything worse - but they keep surprising me.
