    Borussia Dortmund (A) - CL QF | Post-Match Thread

    Makes me wonder what it is they are supposed to be 'guarding'?

    Borussia Dortmund - CL QF (A) | Man of the Match

    I was initially going for Eddie but when yer consider that Trautmann would have caught Belligerentham's shot with one hand, I thought Kev was ok for it!

    Borussia Dortmund (A) - CL QF | Post-Match Thread

    Let's not forget where Didi came from! He's only doing what the RDAHMeedya do when there's an English team in the CL - their support is the stuff of legends!

    Borussia Dortmund (A) - CL QF | Post-Match Thread

    The only bit of the rub of the green we might get this season in the CL was last night's pen - although why VAR took as long as they did is quite 'mysterious'! People trying to tell us that Can headed the ball onto his arm. Bollocks! He stuck his arm out as 'insurance' in case his head didn't...

    Borussia Dortmund (A) - CL QF | Post-Match Thread

    But put Haaland in a team with Foden 'n KdB and he becomes the player we think he has inside him - and he does it regularly. Like Sergio did! Fifty mins in last night and I'm thinking that the quadruple was good fun while it lasted. Sixty-five years trundling to Maine Road 'n The Etihad and I...

    The Etihad looks great from anywhere!

    Not tv tonight?

    I often flick on CityTV and think WTF. Why aren't they showing this game, kids or women. They said it would be on CityTV. And then I find that I'm on the wrong day!

    Alex Scott new host of Football Focus

    Oh, if only it were the 1950s! Oh, hang on, I wouldn't be typing this if it were the 50s - the golden age of D. Ewing once of the parish of Rusholme! As for FF, it's typically the BBC - just oozing in the finest swill a football programme could offer up the punters. I can't see AS making a...

    Borussia Dortmund (A) - CL QF | Pre-Match Thread

    Who's the whistling wanker tonight? I expect Uefa would want to address the performance of the ref from last time based on the fact that City won the tie which rendered his performance sub-standard.

    VAR - 2020/21

    This is the preferred PiGMOL option whenever we score!

    VAR - 2020/21

    I think I have seen enough of recent games to tell me that the application of VAR is variable. The Pogba elbow, the Cavani smack to the back of the Spurs fellah's head, and the Mctominmaoanaoananany flick to the face of Son. Three instances from the same match. Pogba? No sanction! Cavani...

    VAR - 2020/21

    There are probably marginal offsides that the linos would have either let go or flagged that are now correctly called but I want the same verbal transparency as to WHY VAR has been roused from its slumber and what the ref and VAR wallah are looking at. Not too much to ask of current technology.

    VAR - 2020/21

    More volumes than Encyclopaedia Britannica have ever published. It's a toss up whether they wish to hide incompetence or corruption or both. It's been clear ever since the PL formed that 'even-handedness' or impartiality have taken a back seat. I think I have never heard a peep from PiGMOL...

    HRH Prince Philip - Passed Away

    Have you factored in the Duke's last wishes which included a 'dleiberate cock-up' just so's he could give us all one last laugh. I've no idea what he had in mind but it should make for interesting viewing.
