Rashford is "iniured"

I imagine ETH has lost the dressing room.
He went to a party after the Newcastle defeat and was reprimanded by ETH, but he travelled down to London yesterday with the rest of the squad.

(They travelled by train, which I found interesting - must be quite unusual these days)

United do it a few bit, there was a story about them being abused on the train last year as there was no security

Two of the most detestable managers/teams/midfielders go head to head. I want them all to lose and lose big.......
I will settle for a draw with loads of sendings off for simulation. Let there be carnage

Finally they send a ref to the screen for a subjective decision and Jenas whines. You can't win. Bin it.

All rather amusing already. Played 12 mins and only about 4 of those have been active play 😂

I'd have said that goal was onside, but I guess the letter of the laws (christ knows if it is) means Maguire became active when he went for it.

First game of the weekend and we already have a near 5 minute var check. Although it disallows a McThug goal, so all good 😂

Which is all fine, you are correct

But this wasn't the point of VAR was it?

5 minute check for a toe offside.

VAR rules changed again? I'm baffled by all of it
They haven't changed the rules - it was subjective whether Slabhead was interfering. Given that I wouldn't trust Gillett to feed my cat, asking the ref to look is a good move. But it is yet again spending 5 minutes to find a reason to rule it out. Ruining the game.

Christ knows anymore. I genuinely am lost as to what VARs role and boundaries are anymore. I don't have an issue with the tech, it's just those that implement it that are the problem.

very poor half of football with two bang average sides. Bassey doesn’t look like a PL footballer, it’s so inept it’s actually fun to watch. So glad we didn’t go for him, he’d be found out within minutes of the first training session playing under De Zerbi

lol this is awful. In that little passage of play there, each team lost the ball about six times in 30 seconds. Absolutely zero quality
