It’s long been said that you need a bit of luck, but United had bit after bit after bit, culminating in a truly disgraceful VAR decision.

At least Spurs won’t lose Poch to them :wink:

Why would UEFA make sure of it? If they're good enough they will win it end of story.

We have to be careful though, if we start dominating like we did in late 70/early 80's theyll ban us again.
West Adelaide Soccer Club president Alex Alexandrou said the club was still in a position to be playing and training at the new ground either by the end of the 2015 season or in 2016.

Reading this piece about Tottenham's new stadium - http://spursforlife.com/return-home-cou ... ely-boost/

Do you reckon that could be a factor in helping their Champions League pursuit, a rocking atmosphere will be difficult for whoever is paired with them in the 1/4 finals.

Just watched last night’s Liverpool game. Comfortable winners, but how does Salah get away with that tackle, if the roles were reversed he’d have been rolling like Neymar and the Porto player would have got an early bath. Perhaps the VAR only works in one team’s favour?

Salah tackle was a shocker obvious red and very lucky to get away with it .

I have seen many of those as red, yellow, and nothing. It was obviously an accident but not good.

Personally I don’t like the intent rule, for fouls or handball. It makes them too subjective.

Obviously wasn’t obvious, as it wasn’t given on or off the pitch.
