  1. Fred - £47m well spent

    I know i will get mocked for saying this and fair enough but, i honestly think Luke Shaw could do a better job than Fred. Telles in for Shaw at LB. I’m not sure there is anything Fred does that Shaw couldn’t do. Happy to be laughed at but so pissed off at Fred. I am pretty sure the opposition...
  2. How is that Hudson-Odoi handball not a penalty?

    Sorry but that doesnt make sense to me. If VAR shows 1mm offside then its offside. Gaining an advantage is not a consideration. Offside is offside . Not sure why it is such a problem to grasp. Sure there are more marginal calls now that before might or might not have been flagged.
  3. How is that Hudson-Odoi handball not a penalty?

    Please, this makes absolutely no sense. If offside by 1 mm then its offside. For a start , imagine the uproar and maybe even legal action if the video shows 1mm offside and it is deemed onside. Also 1mm becomes 2 mm then 3mm. Accept that the video has a tolerance and that it is far better than...
  4. How is that Hudson-Odoi handball not a penalty?

    Well I agree that there seems to be an “en vogue” thing with VAR. For example keepers moving off the line before penalty taken or players encroaching in box. In WC Russia it was holding on corners which led to loads of penalties. Handball decisions with VAR can never be binary and I agree that...
  5. How is that Hudson-Odoi handball not a penalty?

    Confusion is saying is “caused by change of laws mid season”. Can you be specific? I’m not defending VAR. It is a complete shambles and, feel free to shoot me down, this is a frenzy created by media to sell papers. BBC are also complicit. Match of the Day... Shearer “ By the letter of the law...
  6. How is that Hudson-Odoi handball not a penalty?

    Can’t understand why not given after ref reviews it. The only thing I can think is when watched at full speed it appears that Greenwoods arm movement suggests he is trying to nudge the ball away and perhaps ref interprets this as a reason why Odoi lifts his arm to block Greenwoods. Kind of...
  7. Europa League Round of 16 Draw | United vs Milan

    Got beat the best to win it. And not singling your post about tough draw but have to say when we get dumped out of CL from a group with Leipzig and Instanbul Basak (who are near bottom of Turkish League) with 6 points from first two games. Hard to complain about the draw.
  8. Europa League Round of 16 Draw | United vs Milan

    Was just msging my mate with the same. Zlatan will have some strange revenge card.
  9. Europa League Round of 16 Draw | United vs Milan

    But will be neutral venue - Inters Stadium.. Which is never full.. :-)
  10. Refs & VAR 2020/2021 Discussion

    This. Surely the only decision is the card , red or yellow. Guaranteed that is a Red anywhere else on the pitch. Amazing. Serious? “ The defender got rewarded for not paying attention” Ok we all love football and argueing or discussing decisions but really Defender should have got a red card...
  11. Liverpool: The Invincibles 2016/2017 (as imagined by Mark Lawrenson) | Now Double Invincibles

    So I got 5 predictions totally correct and 3 others result only correct. Not bad from excel formula
  12. Fred is one of the most underrated players in England

    Well he’s playing great so far tonight. You critisize the “Fred sh*t brigade” as they ignore the same thing from teammates? So you agree Fred makes poor passes then. My view is that he is not consistent and has flashes of quality. I see nothing underrated thats all.
  13. Liverpool: The Invincibles 2016/2017 (as imagined by Mark Lawrenson) | Now Double Invincibles

    No predictions posted on BBC yet so I thought I’d predict his.. Man City v West Ham 2-0 West Brom v Brighton 1-0 Leeds v Aston Villa 1-2 Newcastle v Wolves1-2 Sunday 28 February Crystal Palace v Fulham 2-1 Leicester v Arsenal 1-1 Spurs v Burnley 2-1 Chelsea v Man Utd 1-1 Sheffield Utd v...
  14. Fred is one of the most underrated players in England

    And, as I have been constant in my opinion, he does have this ability but doesnt produce game after game. Great engine but offers little else consistency wise. I cannot agree he is “one of most underrated players in UK” I often think his passing stats are so high as opponents are happy for him...
