    Fair enough - the year transfer ban had regulations which presumably they adhered to, and pre-ordering seems standard behaviour.

    I agree about Chelsea - the high spending was after no spending for a year, and there were presumably a few sales in there as well. This year, they've done a lot of pretty good business.

    Do you mean the goal line handball vs Liverpool? Only 1 match for that. Three match bans are for serious foul play (bad tackles) and violent conduct (grabbing someone by the throat)?

    I didn't hear anything about the book - only heard there was one today - but yes, he was very clear in his feelings on the amount of progress and where it was lacking.

    The lack of mateyness, shouting, and commitment to criticise anyone he thinks deserves it stood out. Being much older than the others (after Gower was cut) gave him the detachment to do so. The voice though - as you say, a pleasure to listen to, didn't necessarily feel the need to fill the air...

    Michael Holding has retired from commentating. Just about the best in recent years.

    Coronavirus (2021) thread

    There's one that's rife in places like Peru which there are a small number of cases for here - about 55 last I heard of it. As it's been in the country for quite a few weeks, it may be contained - it was reported as being of concern.

    Yep, I certainly remember seeing tables of 2nd-7th when City were top, and United 7th. I'd almost be pleased if they kept having to show a top 11 to show them, as it wouldn't be particularly flattering.

    Timestamp is Sunday, so before Everton played. I assume the point intended here is who were in fourth at the time, just below where the table cut off (for all it matters after 4 matches).

    VAR Thread - 2021/22

    The main difference to rugby/cricket is that most of what goes to the video ref in those sports is fact - some of football will be "is that a foul" which is subjective, and not factual. It's missing some that it shouldn't, but some things are still going to be someone's opinion.

    I agree that he should have. He wouldn't have been able to do anything though - there wasn't anything he could have done, and Hamilton's engine was still going with wheels spinning. I was even more surprised that no medical car arrived and Hamilton ordered into it.

    Fernandez has said in the post-match interviews that she didn't know the rule on a bleeding cut bringing an immediate halt. Usually medical timeouts have to wait until there is a changeover. I can't remember seeing a player getting a cut before.

    I look forward to someone like Adam Peaty being interviewed and saying "let's be honest, I'm not winning this year, am I?" with a big grin on his face.

    The majority were on the Canadian's side, but were pretty fair for most of it - no lack of applause for good play. Some numbskulls of course, but nothing that got the umpire involved.
