Here's a shot of our midfield defender who had to play keeper with gloves that didn't fit after he blocked their fucking bs...

I haven't seen the alleged time-wasting or the coming off the line for the penalty. If either was correct then a yellow card would have been in order. Having already received a yellow card the onus was on the keeper to behave. A keeper being sent off during a penalty shoot-out has happened before, (at least that's what i've been told on another site), and there's absolutely no way teams should be allowed to substitute players during a penalty shoot-out.

Speaking of bullshit.

NY stopped our 1st goal with one of their players deliberately hand balling down Nani's perfect header. They were both about 2 - 3 feet away from the goal. They ref correctly called the PK for us. But did not issue a card to their player. I'm no expert on the rules... and after watching that Chinese fire drill that I watched today I don't believe anyone knows the rules... but the announcers sure as shit said a card was supposed to be issued to that player. Our coach even came out to the ref about to lose his mind. No card. That happened in the 1st few minutes of the game. It got way worse from there. You would have shit watching it. It was a bastardization of the game.

We get several MLS games per week on freeview tv in the UK. I might see it Tuesday or Wednesday. Deliberate hand-ball is a mandatory yellow card offence. If it's outside the penalty area it can be, and normally is, a red card, (based on the offender trying to prevent a clear goal-scoring opportunity).

That what the announcers were saying. This shit happened 2 feet in front of the goal.

Thank you Chelsea for the best Christmas gift of the year. We've been straight shit for a while now and that money you all spent helped us secure a big W.

Looks like the Ozil era is ending. Reports are we‘re sending him to Fenerbache where we’ll pay his salary for the rest of the year before he signs a new contract in Istanbul.

I’ve been meaning to reply to this, but after what I watched earlier I think I’ll leave it there.

I think each of us has a referee they'd like to slap upside the head and 45 minutes of pitch time to forget.

FA Trophy: Hornchurch stun Notts County on penalties to reach Wembley final
https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/56552480

Not sure if anyone cares but my local team made it to the final of the FA Trophy yesterday. It’s the equivalent of the FA Cup but for non-league teams. Remarkable achievement as they are quite a way down the non-league pyramid and haven’t had any games since November as the league they play in was suspended due to the pandemic. The final, at Wembley, is in 22nd May and they are hoping some fans will be allowed in. I’m hoping I can go. Come on you Urchins!!

I'm so incredibly over VAR it's just straight shit. I know every fan base can point these things out too but today we had a goal disallowed by VAR due to offsides and Fulham had a penalty validated despite offsides. I can't tell a difference between these but the VAR official could.

Football was tarnished years ago Olders, it’s been going this way for a while. We currently have a Champions League that has the Champions in it as well as a load of teams that didn’t win their domestic leagues for example.

Problem is, this guarantees other clubs don't have a chance to shine in the top flight due to financial stratification from big clubs. Say goodbye to any hopes of teams like Leicester winning the title; at least they had a shot under the current status quo.

Glad the Bayern and Dortmund announced their opposition to the Super League so far, we'll see how that goes though.
