Noticed the Arsenal cup game is going to have the first test of the new video officiating system in place (not sure if it's been played yet), the gazelle cup or whatever it's supposed to be, bleeding heck.Arsene likes to whinge about decisions constantly. Lets hope they haven't bought this game by being the first to test out that technology. Here is to hoping we have a good game to watch, COYR good luck!
Can in for Wijnaldum? That would be a very big surprise for me. Wijnaldum is at his absolute best in games like this, high tempo, pressing, transitions, counter-attacking, ... That's his bread and butter. He was brilliant in our 3-4 win there last season.Then again, if we're playing all four of them, we're going to need the two who play in front of the defence to do their defensive duties well while our attacking four run riot.Not going to bother with a line-up myself, there will be some surprises in there.Couldn't have wished for a more exciting game to look forward to on my birthday. Here's to a great game, with brilliant attacking football and lots of goals. Of course the Mighty Reds take it home in the end!
it is probably good for away games. Takes away the home advantage a bit.
I'm not against the video decisions, I'd have to see more of how exactly it's implemented. Say your team has so many ask for video judgement choices in a game.Seeing the diving and manipulation of refs is really making me half despise football, I still love it though.I'm hoping they haven't got some preferential allowance because they agreed to be the first, I'll put it out there before the game, just in case we're like wth was that all about in terms of decisions.
Decisions tend to go to the home team when it is 50/50, so I think it could be advantageous to us today if this stops that.
It's not for our game though, it's a test in their cup game.I really think it might be essential to get video decisions in future. It's a pity, but footy has got ridiculous in terms of players being wimps and getting decisions.
Ah okay, I miss read. Standard of refereeing is not very good nowadays, so some technology should be fast tracked in. Hopefully IFAB will see that sooner rather than later.
