    I like the way the American Football system works better in terms of the requirement for clear and unquestionable video evidence to overturn a ruling on the field.

    But for the fact it holds up play, whilst they show a load of adverts.

    American Football, whilst a good game, is fucking unwatchably dull because of it's stop-start nature. Football flows.

    But yeah, there's billions to be made by breaking up football. But you don't want to alienate your fanbase. So slowly does it. First VAR to get people used to small breaks. Then adverts. Then whatever.

    It's clearly the thin end of the wedge.

    You should try to watch something other than the occasional Liverpool match. Try another league; have a go at three Danish one.

    To be honest, if you're not watching the best leagues/teams or you're in the stands, then football is fucking boring as shit.
    Passing it around in the middle, missed pass goes out over the sideline, throw it onto the field again and hoof it at the other team's box, but again a missed pass and a goal kick. 30 seconds later it is hoofed up across the midfield, a duel in the air gives one team the ball and it goes out over the sideline again. Thrown onto the field and now a deep ball, but offside..

    You can have 90 minutes with no highlights to show. That would never happen in even a high school American football game.

    So lets see if Chelsea can actually score tonight.

    We should have made more of some of those corners, that one in the last minute was such a fucking waste, bloody infuriating. Just wang it in at Rondon's head.

    6th confirmed. Eriksen off to Real in the summer. Dele joins a foreign club like Juve, Bayern or maybe even City. Pochettino leaves the sinking ship to join the Red Devils. With Kane out for the rest of the season, Son is put under too much pressure so he breaks mentally and physically, resulting in him returning to Korea for good. Tottenham end the 2019/20 season as 13th in the table. All the money from player sales have been wasted on hopeless overpriced youth "talents" and the club can no longer put down the payments for Wembley, and the club is declared bankrupt which means a forced relegation to the fourth best league in the country. Harry Kane returns in the 2020/21 season, but never returns to his old form.

    Holy fuck, who woulda thought a damaged ligament could affect a single club that much?

    RIP Tottenham

    "VAR wasn't brought in for this"

    Yes it was, you bleeding moron. You thought it was about "fairness" - but you don't spend that amount of money on something that's been working fine for over a hundred years unless you can see a big pot of (advertising) gold in the future...

    Mou must be so bitter right now. Old, angry, bitter, figured out and dated.

    Exact same material with vastly different results

    DaGaffer Down With That Sorta Thing

    He's still running around blaming everyone but himself. Apparently its all United's management structure that's at fault, because of course that creates turgid negativity all on its own.

    Anyhoo, 3rd/4th battle is starting to look tasty after today's results.
