He's not very good, ask any Cardiff fan and I've never really got this nice guy argument, why is he nice because he's always enthusiastic and smiling, for me that's not nice it's annoying, he's a fast show sketch waiting to be written, actually didn't they have an over enthusiastic teenage character from Manchester who loudly said everything was BRILLIANT, nice guy or annoying?

Re: Season 2021/22

Semi-automated offsides trialled at Fifa Arab Cup and could be used at 2022 World Cup

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/59461288

Quote:
The use of technology to help officials make more accurate offside decisions will be tested at the Fifa Arab Cup, which starts on Tuesday.

"Semi-automated offsides" work using between 10 and 12 cameras which collect up to 29 data points for every player 50 times per second.

If it spots a potential offside an alert is sent to the video assistant referee (VAR), who has the final call.

The technology could be used at the 2022 Fifa World Cup.

"VAR has had a very positive impact in football and the number of major mistakes is reduced, but there are areas where it can be improved - and offside is one of them," said Pierluigi Collina, Fifa's chief refereeing officer.
It's only a trial, but we know that if FIFA want it, it will happen.

Is it a good thing that will improve the 'spectator' sport, or yet another improvement that causes frustration and slows the game down?

Is football now entering the stage where everything needs to be closely scrutinised, double checked and verified by independent officials . . . how long before referees and linesmen are redundant, and everything is decided by computers?

It's bull shit and turns me off the game, you get the hard of thinking parroting off side is off side without stopping to think what off side is actually for, it's not because someone's arm or foot is an inch ahead of a defender, it's to stop an unfair advantage being gained

Re: Season 2021/22

My big bug bear is shirt pulling, why is it allowed ? Sometimes they blow for it sometimes not. Just make it illegal, start giving penalties for any tug and it will soon stop.
Oh and asking or suggesting another player to be booked automatically means you get booked.

Think I'd like to be a ref

My main one is diving. But the issue there is that like shirt pulling (which isn't allowed) refs don't give the foul generally. Usually the foul has to be sufficient for the player to go down as opposed to have been illegally impeded for the free kick or penalty to be given.


I'd also like to see much less of this pushing around at free kicks and corners in the box, strictly it's illegal contact, so should be a foul but the ref can't give a pen for it because both teams are usually at it.



On a similar note, they need to be a bit less soft with fouls in the box and 2nd yellows. The law makes no distinction on either - if it's a foul which would be a free kick outside, in the box it's a penalty. And if a player gets 2 yellow card offences they are sent off. Might also cut back on some of this silly cheating and back chat the refs have to put up with as well. I think there was one occasion when he was in the championship before they went up where Schmeichel conceded a pen, the ref booked him for the foul, then he was time wasting/arguing on it, the ref booked him again and he had to go off, thats the kind of thing which should happen really.

Re: Season 2021/22

Looks like UEFA are trying to outdo the FIA for rank incompetence. The draw for next round is going to be redrawn after United got drawn against Villarreal before then being paired with PSG, piss up and brewery comes to mind.

Fine here, I always find the first few minutes of footy on Prime is poor but once it settles down its very good.

Re: Season 2021/22

The Premier League need to get far more involved in these postponements. They need to independently test the players to see who can play and who canít play, and if itís the latter, they then need to determine whether they canít play because of Covid, suspension or injury. By all means get a game postponed but for the rescheduled fixture, only the players who were originally fit, or who had Covid for the first game, should be eligible for the rescheduled fixture. No team should be gaining an advantage by allowing players time to regain fitness, or to come back from suspension, or time to buy new players, in time for the rescheduled game. This approach should be applied to all teams in the league, not just Saints and Newcastle. To be honest, this idea is not rocket science, the fact that itís not been implemented so far does hint at the quality (or lack of quality) of the people involved in the governance of the league. Best league in the world we are told!
