  4. Bonkers stuff. A couple of seasons ago when VAR was piloted in the Champions League, Man U got a dubious penalty against PSG given via VAR and I just knew that whatever VAR was that I didn't like it. Goal-line technology performs a straight-forward, uncontroversial function, so that's fine. Perhaps technology ought to be introduced just for these sorts of occasions. VAR just completely interferes with the flow of a game and hasn't even succeeded in removing the arbitrary chaos of refereeing. Hopefully they'll get rid of it, but we're living in the Opta era of footie so I won't hold my breath.

  5. Absolute rubbish. But people like to think everything is rosey etc. Saying it how it is isnt allowed anymore. It has been a rubbish pre season for us results wise. Let's hope results when it matters arent similar. Everyone who is a fcht supporter all want the same and that's a successful team, everyone wants PW to succeed. If we start off well people like you say "Where's all the negative fans now? " and if we start off poor you say "this is what the negative fans wanted".

  6. And apparently one of only two players to get a hat trick against a team managed by Guardiola. And he’s managed it twice! Messi the other.

  8. Sounds as thought most of our “ fans” are just waiting to criticise, how sad but then again I’ve always said if you can please the people of Halifax you can please anybody. i.e. OK is Halifax speak for excellent Not bad is Halifax speak for very good Good is rarely used but if it was it would be Halifax speak for fantastic.

  10. Seen them all at Clitheroe, did you go? When we got outplayed for 90 minutes, and apart from Stenson/hyde none of the new boys looked any better than the opposition. As i said first game or not i would expect our team to have too much quality than Clitheroe, then Boston, then Curzon

  12. "Results dont always matter" but when playing the likes of Clitheroe and Curzon, we should be winning no matter which squad we put out. Its not been a great pre season at all. Dont want to sound too defeatist but apart from Hyde (on paper) i dont feel we've strengthened our side at all. Are woods and summerfield better than Staunton and cooper? Green better than King? Bradbury better than brown? For me answer to them is no.

  18. just watched a small clip on bbc about a group of recovering gamblers who are trying to get betting sites sponsorship banned on football shirts....10 out of the 20 premiership teams are sponsored by betting sites...been in recovery myself I am all for it...theres too much advertising for gambling on shirts on the tv ,online on the radio its ridiculous..you cant watch anything now without these gangsters popping up with an advert..our kids get to see and hear all these sites it really needs to stop and if football teams start changing there sponsorship it's a massive start

  19. Given that by the time we might be able to watch the games live it'll be the middle of winter and freezing cold I might actually prefer to keep the live streaming and meet up in the pub after! By the way I can't see how the pubs can be stopped from streaming the games which could be a nice money spinner for such as the Courtyard and Royal Oak.

  20. Thanks, Steve. What I meant was that some might prefer to keep their options open in case a return to the ground becomes possible. Given the circumstances and the distance I'd need to travel to 'enjoy' the experience, I might prefer to continue streaming. Others who live locally would, presumably, prefer to retain the option of attending matches physically.

  21. The Culture, Media and Sports minister, Oliver Dowden, passed th buck, making great play this morning of laying the onus for support of clubs lower down the pyramid - though he only mentioned EFL clubs - uselessly on the Premier League. Call me cynical, but I'm not sure non-league clubs figure on his radar. Maybe we should all take up grouse shooting.

  24. I really don't see the point of pulverising teams in pre season games and not getting any idea of how organised your key area (defense) is . Maybe we should bring out our best set pieces just in case our future opponents aren't keeping tabs

  27. From the age of about 15 I regularly gambled in order to improve my income. I went completely over the top and got myself in a lot of trouble both financially and a police record to boot. I ended up attending GA and despite a few minor falling off the wagon successfully quit. Years later I started gambling again but now only gamble what I can afford to lose (maybe I am in a minority here) My eldest son has started gambling and that is probably down to me rather than any adverts but it shows how influenced the young can be.

  29. Having watched MotD, it was a definite penalty, no doubt about that. And if I heard/understood Linaker, Shearer & Richards right, they said the whistle hadnt been blown and Shearer says something about listening to the audio without any background noise. So who knows? I still hate VAR, and Brighton really only had themselves to blame with all the squandered chances. That said, Brighton did have at least one very good penalty shout denied even with VAR. My campaign is gaining momentum though, GET VAR OUT!!! P.S. Superb goal by Rashford even if it was for MU.

  32. You can probably count on 1 hand the deaths per year of people being run over by a bus. I think its a bit of a myth that the cause of death in any instances such as this will be classed as covid related.

  33. Previous two seasons we’ve had poor pre-seasons and been too by the end of September. Not worth reading too much into results. I’m more concerned by the number of injuries we seem to have picked up in the last few weeks and players missing games

  34. Rather fittingly 39 years to the day . We'd just parked up in the Old Trafford car park early Saturday evening to attend the Stock Cars over the road and a fancy motor followed us in and parked a few spaces further down . Obviously curious we waited to see who it was, out stepped a rather sheepish Bryan Robson . His signing was made public later that week

  35. How many times in the past have we had a great pre-season, then turned to crap the moment the real stuff starts? We have also had several pre-seasons where we have been poor, then got off to a flyer. Results don't matter in these games. My concern is more on if we have a settled side and a known preferred XI at this point.

  36. Yes, at what point can the ref not award a penalty after the final whistle? When they've left the field of play? When they're left the dressing room? When they're back home? After the end of the season? After they've retired?! The whistle had gone...the game was over!

  37. It's all about brand recognition, keeping the brand in your psyche. The whole world knows about Coca-Cola, it's pretty much everywhere, and whether you drink it or not, it's the adverts that keep it in your brain - the same reason why they insist on having a whole aisle in the supermarkets, that kind of thing. Betting companies like to advertise not because it gets new customers - because you're either a gambler or your not - but because it keeps their brand in your head. Ban the adverts, problem gambling would massively reduce. Same as taxing sugary drinks has reduced the consumption of said

  39. Some season ticket holders might not have a laptop to watch the game on or don't want to do it, going to the Shay is about meeting people as well as watching the game, we should be given a choice . Some fans might need their money back so they can pay for streaming games , some fans won't have stopped working a wiil have a normal wage, others will have been on furlough and have lost 20% of their wage and unfortunately some might have lost their jobs.

  41. Bit harsh there, as the figure of £20 was only put forward as a way to try to compensate the club for the match day revenue. Admittedly, if the cost of putting on the game is less than for a normal match day then the price should be reduced accordingly. I am of the opinion that the consensus seems to be around the £10 mark, although would leave a decision to be made around how to handle the current S/T holders, either give them the option of carrying over the S/T to next season, or a refund and then pay for streaming like everyone else. If we were to get somewhere near the same number of

  44. In the same way that a fit healthy young person can have a surprise heart attack...on any sort of singular level it becomes an impossible argument in the sense that no one can sanely argue that they are happy for people to die. The government is in power to rule for the majority and to consider all possible angles, effects and side effects of every decision they make. If they make decisions based on "there's about a 1 in a zillion chance of a young healthy person dying of it so we must go over the top with all of our measures" then we are all royally f*cked.
