|They think it's all over...|
at 18:57 23 Jun 2019
It is now...football as we knew it.
Just watched England v Macaroons. What a disaster totally ruined by delays for VAR. What happened to the prime rule of football, the referees decision is final..huh.
Accept that VAR can be used for obvious mistakes but when they use it and even the TV commentator suggests than an obvious penalty to England will probably be turned down as it would cause massive problems on the field. And the tackle 8 minutes into injury time? Red card every time without the use of six different TV views.
Today made me think if it is worth watching further games that is now totally controlled by invisible people hidden away in TV cabins uninterested in any emphasis on the game to a decision they take ...allegedly on behalf of the referee.

I see we are really looking to test ourselves in pre-season.
Tuesday 9th July - Dulwich Hamlet - Away
Tuesday 16th July - Wealdstone - Away
Friday 19th July - Ipswich Town - Home
Saturday 27th July - Dover Athletic - Away
Obviously one tricky fixture there though.
|What did you do Saturday?|
at 18:23 12 May 2019
After the euphoria of the first half last Saturday but ultimately the late disappointment, what did you find to do this weekend guys...forgetting Premier league for which I have absolutely no interest being 90% foreign players and managers.
Well, Saturday serious shopping trip with Mrs Gerry (honestly) then a bowls match in the afternoon (again..honestly, playing not watching, and yes I'm old enough for bowls..just.) followed by a nice meal out in the evening. Sunday a pleasant and long walk along local sandy beach, uplifting but chilly.
So,that's my story,what's yours?
And when does the season start again? I'm bored already.
|VAR? What a joke.|
at 21:53 16 Mar 2019
No VAR at Swansea v City. Both the penalty and third goal would have proved goals should not have counted.
VAR at Wolves v United. Red card rescinded to yellow for United. Just seen the tackle and it's a brutal tackle, well worth the red card so cant believe it was overturned.
I still believe that the referee should be the only arbiter of fact on the pitch and the fact it is instantaneous means (hopefully) the "high" standing of the team is irrelevant. In both cases tonight VAR or no VAR worked in favour of the "top" teams.
How can you have two quarter finals, one with VAR and one without? Unbelievable. Kick it into touch and go back to the good old referee, or..referee the game from the stands with a TV screen. Phew...feel better now.

...but has our defence tightened up since McG decided to return Eastman to his rightful place in the centre of defence? Hopefully we will find his name on the teamsheet this evening but nothing is ever certain with our method of team selection.
Eastman in the team...good omen.

Big omen for today's game.
at 14:36 19 Jan 2019
Pretty much team selection as expected. Please do not go 1-0 up early as we are totally unable to get through a match defending it.
Good to see Junior on the bench. Circumstances permitting, I hope he gets a "reasonable" run out but I am taking bets on him coming on around 88 minutes, aka Macca Bonne. Nobody, even a genius, is unlikely to perform under those circumstances. Grumble over....now come on U's, today is ultra important. No pressure then.

Can't help thinking that the game would vastly improve if they made the football shirts totally without sleeves...not even the hole for the arms...or maybe just play in straight jackets. Would solve so many problems that are rife, especially in the Prem.

U's ONE Notts County THREE 30 minutes gone.
What is going on?
Anyone remember beating MKDon away 1-0 a couple of weeks ago?
|A "No Stress" weekend.|
at 17:21 30 Nov 2018
Enjoy it guys.
What a nice thought to have no worry or stress this weekend about the U's: should we maybe drop out of the auto promotion places; or maybe foul up a winning position...its been known!
Losing in the FAC first round gives us the opportunity to relax and enjoy other's pain...Ippy maybe?
|Concentrating on the league then!|
at 21:13 13 Nov 2018
Out of two cups in four days continues our poor performance recently in cup competitions. Let us hope that our lighter work load in the coming weeks will be reflected in our league form although I am a believer in winning breeds more winning be it cup or league.
Oh well, back to league action Saturday and not an easy one.
|We must never sell Wembley |
at 22:01 29 Oct 2018
Just watched Spurs v City and saw an overriding reason why we must maintain Wembley as our national "football stadium. How an NFL game can cause so much damage to the pitch I cannot imagine. However, I suppose 40 or so 20 stone+ player running around on it can't help. The bare grass on the far side was apparently caused by support staff. As the commentator said....they must have had 3,000 staff to cause that much damage.
We must never deny "all" levels of football the opportunity of playing on the Wembley pristine pitch...Not a cow meadow
|Unlikely equaliser...we'll take it.|
at 20:43 18 Aug 2018
In the 5th minute of 4 minutes of injury time Sammy saved our bacon. As neither team deserved to win this poor game it was probably the right result although if I were a Stags supporter I would be apoplectic. No doubt Durham will fill in the major details when or if he gets home tonight..(he's had a few disastrous journeys recently).
My main gripe today is the fact that having gone behind on 82 minutes we bring on substitute Eastman on 86 not that he should have been on the bench anyhow ? Can anyone explain that one to me please?
