Edouard Mendy to Chelsea is 100% done and also signed. The announcement will be on next week. #CFC #Chelsea


Fat Frank making all kinds of excuses saying it should have been 1-1

Brady off early. Shame as he was a bright spark in Burnley's attack
 
2020-09-20 3:08:45 PM  
Own goal give Leicester the lead.
Terrific pass by Tielmans to open it up.
Pass back across was tipped by Peters into the goal.

2-1

Vardy party put down as an OG

Justin tucks in the low cross into the corner.

Burnley get one back.
Header from a free kick.
3-2
 
2020-09-20 3:36:39 PM  
Prat restores the 2 goal lead.
Ripper from 20 yards out.

Woods completely unmarked decides to go first time and hits it off the post.

First blink in La Liga goes to Madrid as they tie La Real 0-0.

FYI, Roku and NBC have moved quickly and the Peacock app is now on there. I've seen it on my TV already.

lies.

I ruin everything.

They should spot Sheff. a goal for the robbery from last season.
 
2020-09-21 1:13:21 PM  
Red card already??
 
2020-09-21 1:13:43 PM  
Instead, they get a red in 11 minutes.
 
2020-09-21 1:15:09 PM  
odd situation, I'm back and forth on it in my head

red seems a smidge harsh, but that first grab was probably key
 
2020-09-21 1:15:50 PM  
Blades odds dented.

Ref must have decided it was a denial of a goal scoring opportunity, not unlike the red given to Chelsea yesterday after Mane got tackled.
 
2020-09-21 1:18:08 PM  
funny to think, watching a match in which I don't have a horse in the fight, that there are millions of fans who are living and dying by every possession

when I watch one of my own teams play:

fark HELL GODDAMIT THIS IS THE WORST DAY OF MY LIFE shiat WHY CAN'T THEY DO ANYTHING RIGHT NOTHING WILL EVER BE GOOD IN THE WORLD AGAIN

that was it, but the attacking player made the contact and pushed away from the ball, which seemed silly

however, he grabbed his jersey when he got bumped and held him

it seemed less obvious on each replay, and then it was obvious again

I think whatever his initial decision was would have been upheld by VAR.

Peacock sucking yet again.  Oh sure its now on Roku, but it wouldn't take my credentials until I reset my password. And the website didn't save either my payment method or my address.

I will repeat something I said yesterday: on red card reviews, the ref must go to the monitor and make the final decision. VAR can only direct the ref to go to the monitor.

VAR will still make the final call on things that are black and white calls, such as offside. But if the call isn't that, the ref is supposed to look at the screen.

did he?  I don't remember if they showed him.

Penalty to United!
 
2020-09-21 1:35:08 PM  
little divey, but should stand
 
2020-09-21 1:35:31 PM  
Mad Mike is the VAR lawyer?
 
2020-09-21 1:36:06 PM  
why would hed dive right in front of the goal?  seems easier to score from there than the spot
 
2020-09-21 1:37:15 PM  
Do you think Mike takes more or fewer weapons with him when he's the review guy?
 
2020-09-21 1:37:24 PM  
SAVED!

He just keeps them in the boot of his tank.

Evening all.

I am very full of sausages in onion gravy and mash. I've earned it, it's been a stressful day.

Not much of a change strip for Sheff Utd. Is it pink or merely very thin red and white stripes?

He takes his long range weapons with him when he does VAR.
No need to take a knife or something like that.
Needs the artillery or rocket launchers.
