Awright everyone?
Wolves look in control right now but just lost Mina with an injury.
And Pickfords made a couple of saves to keep Everton alive

PK to Wolves

There are only 3 matches.  For some reason, there is a huge 2+ hour gap after 11:30 AM Eastern.

Pista: PK to Wolves


That looked just as soft as the one Man U got that the League later admitted was a mistake.

I'm a Utd fan and even seeing it in real time it was obviously a wrong decision.

The more I see of VAR, the more I think the FA is deliberately trying to discredit it.

Every other Euro League seems to be handling it just fine.
Why can't EPL do better with it?

Italy isn't, IIRC, but they also have a record of dirty refereeing.

Dendoncker with the header

Perfectly placed header to the far corner.

I went and searched for the article I had read. I misremembered the fark-up league. It was Ligue 1, not Serie A. Serie A were rated as well as La Liga was, with a 7/10. Bundesliga had the highest, with a 8/10.

If I remember correctly, the French Ligue 1 are having a reall problem with it. La Liga had issues the first season but it all seems to have calmed down a bit now.
There was an article about how the big European leagues were handling it somewhere

Still can't dodge people claiming it's favoring the big clubs. A former Barcelona exec turned talking head was losing his mind during Madrid-Alaves. On a clear penalty where Vinicius got cleaned out and a clear onside where Benzema was played on by the last defender, he claimed it was all fixed.

I'd like to know what he's taking.

Because the FA is still very much an old boys club where connections mean more than competence. At least two if not three heads of the FA have left after they were blocked from doing anything by the blazer brigade.

Rugby has a decade of using a tv official. The same with Cricket (unless the Indians are playing). The knowledge is in the country on how to use it and Wayne Barnes, Nigel Owens, JP Doyle could have been consulted on the best use.

It will get better, after the idiots in charge are forced to move due to the balls-ups that have happened.

Having lived as many years in the US as England, I like to think I combine the worst of both worlds.

I remember Grass being a key player for Olympiakos in their shock 2-0 victory over Moyes' United.

If that had gone in would Pickford have been given the assist aswell as the goal?

To be fair, they're the most prominent team to use the Wolves moniker, as the NBA team goes by Timberwolves or TWolves.
