Re: Rangers v Celtic

Gloating already and maybe putting the knife in. I actually rate Gerrard. Rangers look a better side under him. Neil Lennon reckons he'd have been sacked if he'd endured two trophy less seasons like Old Firm rival Steven Gerrard. The Rangers gaffer has failed to land silverware in his time in charg...

Re: Rangers v Celtic

Either finish the season or void the season, with the caveat that mathematical certainties are allowed for. It's the only fair way to conclude things, this WPPG or PPG doesn't take account of who you've got to play and it's a mathematically flawed model. Read Martin Samuel's explanation and you'll u...

Re: VAR, yet again

More confusion at Old Trafford, Fred drives into the box, falls over and Mike Dean books him for diving. VAR looks at it and backs up the referee, yet when they show the replay on the TV, there is clearly contact between the defender and Fred's leg (whether enough to fell him is debatable) and it ha...

Re: VAR, yet again

Yet another opportunity for VAR to tie itself in knots. In the Burnley v Bournemouth game a Cherries defender handled the ball in his own box and they then went up the other end and scored. The goal was chalked off by VAR for a handball in the build up and, in this instance, correctly gave a penalty...
