I still don't see all the fuss about the handball decision. I agree that the law is the problem
This. This is what the fuss is about.

I'd argue that nobody's arms make their body unnaturally bigger (unless they have some kind of go go gadget go style arm extender.....)

Re: FA Cup - Sheff Utd v Rovers

Yeah, that'll be it.

I keep applying it to the issue of "goal hanging" which the rule currently doesn't really prohibit.....

Re: FA Cup - Sheff Utd v Rovers

Hedges is inches from making it 1-3 as was Gally possibly so it's bit of a heartbreaker. Also if you wanted to whinge Robinson should have seen a second yellow in the first half and game should have been stopped before third goal. But oh well. Making myself feel better by knowing how anticlimactic ...

Re: FA Cup - Sheff Utd v Rovers

Rovers v Reading

Good to get the win with a late one, and nice to bounce straight back with a win.

Five point cushion for playoff place, much nicer being there than looking in....

Re: Leicester v Blackburn, Tue 28th Feb FA CUP

Managed to Billy Beane my way through that. I thought the days of caring about football results were behind me :D Same! Though my lad is starting to "watch" Stockport County (our closest team geographically now) and so finding myself start to care about how they're doing. Heart in mouth w...

Gareth Ainsworth takes over at QPR

Just in time for us to build on our win against Blackpool and start to cement our play off place with a win against them?

Right?

Re: Man City charged with over 100 breaches of financial rules

Don't be silly, that's not how things work anymore. The main thing is to accuse publicly and have it all over the media so everyone knows you're guilty!
