And what a weapon it’s proving to be for them. Propelled one to the title and one from mid table obscurity to a 3rd place finish. Feels like deja vu this season.
It wasn’t supposed to be like that. FFP was initially designed to stop clubs going bust due to huge debt from overspending without having the requisite funds to cover it. Just like FFP, VAR was used by certain entities as an opportunity for their own good, the recent blackmail strategy from the Rags and Dippers only cements my thoughts that they are influencing outcomes of the PL.Do you think VAR has been brought in to make sure the advantages go to who they want to win trophies? Remember it was only goal line technology at first! I did warn that it was the start of a slippery slope! It may be bent now because goal line technology was not opinion it was fact. That may have upset them, no control you see.
When they first aired 'Ref Watch' it sounded like it would be an interesting programme, helping to bring some clarity and insight (and informed, impartial debate) into the more contentious decisions from the weekend matches. In reality, it's probably the biggest waste of 30 minutes known to mankind. The 'impartial' panel, comprising Dermott Gallagher, Stephen Warnock (ex Liverpool) and Sue Scott (Scouser) predictably fail to see anything amiss with any decision that favours Liverpool (and God knows, there's enough of them). As for Rob Wootton, he clearly knows the score and takes the piss whenever it can be deemed acceptable but he's getting well paid for it and, ultimately, toes the Sky party line.On ssn ref watch for the last 12 months dermot Gallagher has said any contact in the box runs the risk of it being a pen, always says it when Salah and Fernandez go down,but when it's against the scouse and rags he says there is not enough contact to go down so not a pen, same with handball too close or players arms down by the side , in favour of the scouse and rags,reporter Rob wootton just gives a daft grin and doesn't pull him up in case he gets 50,000 death threats.
