  1. A lot of talk about relegation and the like (obviously since we're down there) but that game in hand for Sheffield United could put them in a champions League spot if the Man City ban stands. Arsenal also a game in hand away from a Europa League spot. I've no idea how you could fairly sort that out...
  2. Also means if we relegate 5 or 6 next year that bouncing back up the year after will be the hardest it's ever been!
  3. They might think a bit more long term...get rid of the top four, no teams coming down with PL money.... Gives teams like Forest, Preston and the like the best chance of promotion they'll ever have next year.
  4. It's not the first time Friend has been demonstrably bent when refereeing a match of ours. He's a crook.
  5. Same here. I'm certainly coming if we're in the Championship. Yet to decide if we stay up.
  6. I looked a couple of weeks ago and they were sold out. The also segregated the car parks by team, though not sure how they were planning on enforcing that. Pink was Man City IIRC.
  7. I've done exactly the same. Hopefully be quite quick onto the M1 after the match.
  8. Really? I think if it finally came out that there was match fixing at the top level I and many others would be thinking 'no shit, sherlock'. Not saying VAR is the cause of match fixing, but I'm convinced some referees have been on the take for decades. There's too much money at stake, and referees are paid too little in comparison, for there to be any other option than match fixing by referees. Not saying fixing as in specific scores or even results, but little sweeteners for the refs if a few 50/50 calls go the right way... course it happens.
  9. So, VAR overruled it, so it was a Clear And Obvious Error, yeah? So which of the linesman or referee will be held accountable for their Clear And Obvious Error? I could understand the referee not having a great view, but if he didn't then the Lino was ten yards away. Surely there should be a tally of the Clear And Obvious Errors each referee and linesman have made? When and how are they held accountable for them? If a referee keeps making Clear And Obvious Errors then surely they should be sacked? Say, more than three a season? Or maybe it's all just made up bullshit.
  10. Plenty of good performances today from us. The main thing I took home from that though is the conviction that the referees are on the take. No yellows for Spurs in that game is so demonstrably corrupt it's unbelievable. They're obviously all at it though so no one does a thing.
  11. I always liked what I saw of him. I'd hate to see us lose him for nothing, especially if we end up going down. With Grealish leaving he'd have a chance to force his way into the team.
  12. Seems so simple to me. Have someone watch it back in slow motion if there's a goal. If there's an obvious error, overrule it. If the linesman's decision looks kosher in slow Mo, let it stand. Gets rid of egregious errors without the nonsense.
  13. More farce in the Wolves match. Even the referee doesn't seem to know what's happening. Who's in charge anymore?
  14. Hello all, I've always got the train to Wembley in the past, and usually stayed overnight too. For various reasons I need to drive down this time. I remember I went in a minibus as a kid in 1994 and parked near the ground and it took hours to even start moving. I'm assuming this hasn't improved much, so looking for tips on better places to park. I don't mind a bit of a walk, and would much rather walk 45-60 minutes after the game and get straight out than walk ten minutes and sit in traffic all evening. I'll be heading down the M40/A40 so looking at maps somewhere like Perivale looks about right to be in walking distance yet hopefully be able to jump back on the main road, but I'd never even heard of Perivale before looking at a map. Since we seem to go to Wembley every year now I'm hoping someone here has some good tips! Thanks!

    It's like a bloody episode of Black Mirror. Nothing exists these days unless you wave your bloody phone at it. What happened to just experiencing something?
