Well, interesting weekend. MV being on the bottom of the table with 0 points after 2 games brings me severe happiness.
Did you not get the feeling that had Bolt gone to victory ............ he would have done a better job than Athiu and be a starter ???

There is not much difference in their game that I could see :unsure:

Athiu is a pretty good talent but still not ready to start but a good impact sub

Done your doe again. 80 odd minute equalizer
f**k it. Those French poodles were my banker bet. I also tipped a draw Scum v Everton. Chelsea was my only win it seams and I picked a draw for City v Spurs.
Disasterous weekend:fireup::fireup::fireup:

Why is the VAR so shit, when at the World Cup it was a great success? How can a VAR give a goal that was clearly offside (2018 GF) when the fact that it WAS offside is only ascertainable with the VAR? It make no sense.

Our referees are shit compared to World Cup referees.

Makes perfect sense.

That's a popular opinion, but is there any data apart from our opinions on the their terrible VAR decisions? Are there many excellent VAR decisions we forget abou? Alex Ferguson in his pomp complained about referees very frequently. Is the VAR just something fresh to complain about? How do our refs rate internationally? In what regard are refs held in other codes?
It's all very puzzling. You'd think this rich country with high participation would have plenty of good refs.

Because the same people that the var was needed to stop them interfering with the results are the ones in charge of it’s use.:doh:

The VAR has gone in our favour at least once this season -- that dreadful penalty call against Roar.
The var was supposed to take the uncertainty from referees making bad decisions and making the game fairer .......... but instead it is emphasising the referees discrimination.
When the commentators are left scratching their collective heads over the var getting involved or not getting involved it asks more questions than it answers.:doh:

Lachie Wales probably City's best player in the first half but faded as the game went on. Wellington looked very average and gave City far too much space, but City struggled to really do much with it. Pretty poor standard game apart from the wonder strikes by De Laet and Fornaroli.
