• Hello Guest. We are upgrading the server's XenForo versions. This has to be done in stages. 1.5.18 ---> 1.5.23 ---> 2.0.0 ---> 2.0.12 ---> 2.1.0. I will likely upgrade each one and leave it for a day or so to see if there's any kinks. When moving from 1.x to 2.x, our add-ons will cease to work. Much of the functionality of said add-ons is now native within XenForo 2.x, so I don't think we'll miss much if anything. IF we are, we can try out new 2.x XF add-ons.

I think the reaction is to blame VAR for questionable calls like that, but I think it’s moreso that the rules are unclear - especially on handball.

PSG let United stay in it, and it cost them. OGS the goat

And bonus Roma action!

Yeah, it's pretty incredible how it turns out that nobody understood what handballs actually are. VAR comes in and suddenly it seems like the word "deliberate" doesn't mean what we think it means.

That was definitely a penalty. He jumped, turned and put his arm out deliberately to make himself big and block it. He was 100% not trying to get put of the way, which is when you don't give them.

Along these lines:


Maybe it's a mistranslation or something, but it kinda seems like handballs don't have to be deliberate to be punished.

Arsenal tied 1-1 a man road on the road in Europe? I feel like I've seen this movie before, and it ends with a 7-1 loss or something.

Yeah Zidane is better than Mourinho but the second stint at a place is rarely as successful as the first in any sport. See van Gaal at Barcelona and Mourinho at Chelsea. Or in college football Johnny Majors at Pittsburgh, John Robinson at Southern California and Bill Snyder at Kansas State.

So...we’re a couple of Lyon goals away from shitting on La Liga. Go from winning 6 out of the last 8 UCLs to no quarterfinalists. Can’t wait what the English press says if they’re four teams from the Premier League and no La Liga teams in the quarterfinals.
