 Lurker dead on with the observation, perhaps under current arrangement, maybe attack John Green stand in the second half, where any first half influenced decisions made by the ref set the president for the second half when we should be raising the tempo and neutralising their fans ability to pressurise the lino to give fouls that could hurt us. I'd rather not get an attacking chance, than concede a defensive one iyswim.

Absolutely, away fans need the Chelsea or Liverpool siting attacking left wings /corner away from any lino or where refs seldom go to.
 Alan on your moral I agree - if you think about it we all carry biases around and have things/people/attitudes we like/dislike so why would wouldn’t refs be influenced positively or negatively. They’re humans. It’s why I can’t wait til we lose that situation of away fans within touching distance of the lino cos there’s no way that isn’t a distraction and no way it is a coincidence that so many mistakes get made down there.

 I'm a traditionalist, rules should be the same from the international sides down to the kids at school sides. Anything that involves taking decisions from the on field ref shouldn't have a place in the game.

I also believe that generally refs are honest but can be influenced and its a given that they make mistakes or decisions that divide opinion.
 Is it just me, or does anyone else think that Kevin Borras sounds like Eddie Izzard ? 😊

 I'll always enjoy spending a Saturday afternoon at the football (more so when we move into NPL) but at the elite level it's become an ever-more overt TV product that leaves me feeling increasingly distant.

VAR was never going to solve anything because it is not a technological improvement that removes human error, it's a bloke watching telly, but the way it's been implemented is a disaster
 For far longer than a century, deliberate handball resulted in a free kick/penalty whoever you were and accidental handball didn't. It seemed to work fairly well. Why was it decided you need one rule for the attacking side and a different one for the defending side?

 OI As I understand the new rule, if the ball strikes an attacker's arm in the build up to a goal then the goal will be disallowed regardless of whether the handball was deliberate or the arm was in an 'unnatural' position. This is different to the rule for defenders.

 A couple of questions for any actual referees that post here. 1) Is Silk right that defenders and attackers are treated differently in terms of hand ball in the penalty area? 2) If advantage is being played and the player being offered the advantage commits a red card offence do you send them off and give the free kick to their side? If not what do you do?

 Wonder if Kingstonian got through and drew say Sunderland at home would it be be switched to KM for safety reasons as if the police say their ground isn’t up to it they can move the game

 K’s game v Macclesfield, looks like K’s might be joining Chi in the 2nd round of the FA cup without a ball being kicked.

Please tell me this isn't concerned with AFCW.....
 Historically many of our fans such as me are Chelsea fans as when we were young Chelsea were a proper team and we were low league cowboys But cowboys where our parents would take us every other Saturday to get house the house stand in the dons bar drop us in the family enclosure and get pissed. I don’t think I ever watched a full Wimbledon game with my dad. However he would never miss a min of every other Saturday at the bridge
