    Ref Watch

    It's a caution for SPA (stopping a promising attack). That can be anywhere on the pitch.

    Ref Watch

    Just because someone on refchat says something it doesn't make it right. The law says "a player" should be cautioned for "persistent offences". I've no doubt others on that thread corrected whoever posted that extract.

    Ref Watch

    Persistent fouling can only be by one player. Otherwise v good. I'd just count the number of times commentators use "baffling" for decisions against City (including VAR non-interventions like Saturday's offside).

    There are none. That's why you've got it wrong.

    Ref Watch

    I'm sorry but what English referees say about the laws is part of the problem. Courses (or trainers) that Interpret the laws to mean something more than they say should be challenged. It's why no English referees went to the World Cup. Next time, your default question should be "where on earth...

    Ref Watch

    Hmm - I remember the ref was outside the area so maybe 15 yards away, with his back to Bert, and got the ball in the back.

    I think you're making most of that up. It never included taking a goal kick. And if all outfield players have to be out of the penalty area before 6 seconds start, why would defenders wanting to waste time ever leave the penalty area? If it only applies once the keeper is standing, why would he...

    "Richardtheref"? It might not have been applied for 15 years but it's still there: An indirect free kick is awarded if a goalkeeper, inside their penalty area, commits any of the following offences: • controls the ball with the hand/arm for more than six seconds before releasing it etc

    Correct - except I think "should have gone up". But of course with PGMOL's "never explain, never apologise" omerta we'll never know.

    That's what I mean. It's years since we sang it, and it was explicitly dropped because it was arrogant. So "Do we ever sing it?" not "Did we ever sing it?"

    Do we ever sing that?

    Bruges away anyone?

    I woke up (without an alarm) at 4.30 am and thought "If we'd booked that 0715 flight to Amsterdam then the train to Bruges, I'd have to get up now..." Good luck to those who are going, and especially to the two who got the tickets we didn't buy! (And the B&B...)

    Can they leap up over locks?

    Thanks Pep for calling out the ref (and Liverpool fans)

    Or give a penalty.

    Thanks Pep for calling out the ref (and Liverpool fans)

    Mistaken identity. It's a duff argument anyway. You'd have to say he gave the foul against Henderson, but didn't think it was SPA "Stopping a promising attack" so didn't issue a card, but that means he should have played advantage for that foul and then given the one by Milner and issused a...
