sure many no-United fans are laughing that the last awful penalty decision before VAR at old Trafford went against home team also Pogba throwing some one to the ground then shoving his hand in his face is a yellow card one week after Son pushing someone in the shoulder results in a 3 match ban.

it might be up there as one of the worst pens ever given when no dive was involved, i guess the ref felt bad for the fella.



i thought the Son red was a joke and one for Pogba would of been too, Pogba was just trying to get the ball from someone trying to waste time.

When money is spent, the expectations go up, even if just remaining in the Premier League should be seen as enough really.

What's Brighton's ceiling? 9th? That might be being kind. Anywhere from 10th-14th is a good season for them really.
I’d say their ceiling (or any team like them) is to basically be Stoke of a few years ago, hanging around midtable for a few seasons without really looking in danger.

some interesting changes coming, VAR will hopefully be a net positive and players can now leave the field anywhere when being subbed (hopefully it will be a should, rather than a players choice.)


the weird one is no attacking players in a fk wall, i wonder how it will be enforced, how close can they get to the end of it.

Accidental handball goals will be disallowed. A wise choice imo, but obviously the knock on effect is how to handle Accidental handballs that lead to a goal? You have to start somewhere though.

Agree about the attacking players/wall query. Players will always try to 'bend the rules' and interpretation will be different from one referee to the next. It'll have its share of 'moments' I'd expect.

Man City's staff may want to stop using there phones on the teams plane when they are chanting a rather controversial terrace chant.

but the PL have now said....nothing to see here.

End of an era at City, with Vincent Kompany leaving the club. Not a bad way to go out though, winning the first ever domestic treble and scoring the goal that effectively won the PL title.

Going back to Anderlecht as player-manager.

Guess that's been a done deal for a while, given the speed of the announcement.

Reports in the Italian media that Pep Guardiola is to become the next Juventus manager. You never know in football, but I’d be very surprised if that’s the case.

Yeah, parts of the Italian media are like most of the Spanish press (and some of ours) - they specialise in works of fiction.

Had Pep won the CL I'd be more inclined to believe it was possible. After 3 seasons at City I'm guessing his previous 'shorts' stints at Barca (4 seasons) and Bayern (3 seasons) are behind any belief he'd be looking to move on to Serie A.
