  1. Pochettino sacked by Spurs

    Horrible decision.
  2. Premier League Gameweek 3

    I'm enjoying this game.
  3. The Handball Rule

    I agree with you. But I don't think the referees need any guidelines, it's the absolute guidelines from top down to the referees that are creating this problem in the first place. They are not allowing referees ref the game how they think is best in the name of 'consistency', and with VAR they...
  4. Gary Lineker’s constant ‘heart failure’ jokes to Glenn Hoddle...

    There's a time and a place for most things, including jokes. If a tall man walks down the street he shouldn't need to be bombarded by tall jokes, even if they are aimed at someone else. This is exactly like that, it's not about being easily offended, but about common courtesy in a public space...
  5. Gary Lineker’s constant ‘heart failure’ jokes to Glenn Hoddle...

    Missing the point completely. If Lineker and Hoddle was having a private conversation then all they would have to consider are each other. If their conversation is on a program such as MOTD then it's completely different. If I was on a TV show supposed to be about football, and was mocking...
  6. Get rid of VAR NOW! We want our game back! (...or not, some are happy)

    It's perfectly natural to celebrate an overturned goal in certain circumstances, just as you would if a penalty was saved. I've experienced it twice against City, and if a VAR decision (or penalty save for that matter) in extra time send you to the CL semifinal you would celebrate as if it was a...
  7. Gary Lineker’s constant ‘heart failure’ jokes to Glenn Hoddle...

    I don't think MOTD is a place for these kinds of jokes personally. Main difference with this joke and a few others is that joking about people going bald is seen as socially acceptable (50% of people refer to Guardiola this way) who would never dare to call him a black fraud or gay fraud etc. Of...
  8. Get rid of VAR NOW! We want our game back! (...or not, some are happy)

    I'm actually surprised so many people are against VAR now. I personally didn't like it in the world cup, but I almost only heard praise for it. Now it's implemented in the PL (and even used less) and we have so many people complaining. What made the public perception change?
  9. 2019/20 Rivals - Spurs | Bergwijn out for the remainder of the season

    Am I the only one who don't blame VAR for the penalty incident with Lamela on Rodri? As I understand it, as VAR is implemented in the PL those incidents are up to the referee. VAR didn't miss it, the referee did. If the PL wants to change the rules on this, and allow VAR to intervene such as in...
  10. 2019/20 Rivals - Spurs | Bergwijn out for the remainder of the season

    Me too, Sissoko is extremely frustrating in the final third, and his brain seemingly freezes whenever he is in a position to affect the final third. But except for that he is extremely solid. His ability to carry the ball from defense to attack is invaluable for us, and he is very reliable in...
  11. Get rid of VAR NOW! We want our game back! (...or not, some are happy)

    This would be practically impossible to implement. We can't have a VAR stop every time the play stops for VAR to double check that everything is in order.
  12. Get rid of VAR NOW! We want our game back! (...or not, some are happy)

    I think it was a penalty. But the moment you allow VAR to overturn decisions that ultimately are subjective calls by the referee in the moment, there will be even more questions as for why VAR didn't intervene in x too. The biggest challenge we have with VAR is when it should be used. The...
  13. 2019/20 Rivals - Chelsea

    Yup, it's weird.
  14. 2019/20 Rivals - Spurs | Bergwijn out for the remainder of the season

    We played well with the diamond at times last season. I don't think the main problem against City or Villa was our formation.
  15. 2019/20 Rivals - Spurs | Bergwijn out for the remainder of the season

    We were crap today, but we usually start the season slowly, and we have a number of players out/yet to be accustomed to the team.
