You’d hope it’s not another Oystons scenario

My pal is a season ticket holder there and when in the champ they sold the training ground to the chairman when promoted they bought it back from him at a hugely inflated price.

Sheffield United look to be in big trouble, their keeper would have been relegated twice in two seasons if they go down, even the one today he could have done better with they spent a fortune on him and Palace got Butland for 500k I know who got the better deal.

Palace are one of those teams I’m convinced I’ve never seen win, yet always seem to be around mid table come end of the season.

Klopps meltdown there stinks of sour grapes. Really really dislike him, there’s something very two faced about him.

Think he's one of those guys who's very friendly when he wins but gets saltier than most when he doesn't
I don’t understand what he’s moaning about. Complaining about his schedule but he gets extra money for being in the champions league to spend on his squad. He spent near £50m on Jota when he could have got a few players for the same money. Stinks of sour grapes to me. If he had won that game he wouldn’t have said anything.

Watching Man City tear hopeless Burnley apart, they can get as many as they want today if we stop up I look forward to playing Burnley next season.

Man City just took the piss out of Burnley, Sheffield United look doomed and I can’t see West Brom being far away either. There are a lot of player a stealing a living in the prem like Connolly at Brighton a centre forward who doesn’t score

VARchester United currently losing 2-1 at Southampton, but still plenty of time for them to get another dubious penalty award.

That sound in the clash of heads in the Arsenal game! Sickening.
It was, Jimenez received treatment for about 11 minutes before being stretched off, hope he will be ok.

VAR at it again tonight it’s ruining the game taking over two minutes to make an offside decision and missing the penalty worrying about somebody’s arm being offside

Burnley have just brought on Barnes a striker who hasn’t scored a league goal in over a year. I bet strikers like this miss us as we used to regularly help strikers get over their droughts

I'm not slow to criticise the PL, so it's a pleasant change to see (albeit only 10 games in) only 3 points between 1st and 6th and 4 points between 1st and 10th. Of course the cretin pundits will probably be worrying that having two teams not running away with it means there is something badly wrong.

Sheffield Utd’s Fleck has to many touch’s in midfield James Maddison robs the ball and puts Vardy through for the winner.

VAR just gave a pen for a push on a player outside the box who jumped inside the box.

They also showed it on the screen so the players could see it was outside the box, the players telling the ref to look at the screen as it's outside.

The ref's initial decision was spot on it was never in the box, no idea why the ref didn't go and view the monitor, after VAR overturned his decision.

It's about time the people making the decisions have to answer questions and explain what and why they give things.
Something similar to ice hockey?
They have a list of categories and anything in one of those categories is automatically reviewed. Teams can also request a review for any other incident.

Liverpool do seem to get top prices for their players when they sell them Brewster looks well overpriced.

I absolutely love VAR, don't get me wrong, it's shite, but seeing the Premier league arse wipes who banged on about getting it in for years now crying about it every weekend is hilarious.
