    Curious as to why you say that..... I appreciate the age argument, but he would elevate us up several levels immediately
  2. VAR and Chelsea

    Me neither, but it got nothing on Sky at all, even though Smith conceded it was in the "seen them given" category
  3. VAR and Chelsea

    It hits his hand, and it stops a goal. I don't care how accidental or close he was, that has to be a penalty.
  4. VAR and Chelsea

    you mean when Holding blocked Mount's shot? How is it not handball? Are you contesting it even hit his hand?
  5. VAR and Chelsea

    Christ, forgot that. It really is scandalous how some clubs are well represented in commentary and the studio, and other's aren't. Mind you, Ashley has done an appalling job in fighting our corner
  6. VAR and Chelsea

    no, we don't know. I have my suspicions, as there is a direct correlation between commentator outrage and the attention VAR gives an incident
  7. VAR and Chelsea

    the law is being changed for next season. This season, it hits your arm, and it leads to a goal, it's a free kick.
  8. VAR and Chelsea

    I don't think it is collusion, I just think the VAR official is influenced by what he hears them say. In the Arsenal game, both penalty shouts were barely mentioned, so perhaps the VAR official is comfortable letting it go. Less pressure to make a decision. If the commentators are jumping up and down screaming for a penalty, they will feel pressured to review it thoroughly. That bolded bit doesn't matter. If you handle it, deliberately or otherwise, and it leads to scoring opportunity, it is a free kick. The laws are quite clear. Law 12, if you want to look it up We (the fans) know nothing. Why didn't VAR give a penalty when Holding stopped the ball with his hand? Why didn't VAR give a foul when the Leicester player handled it before their goal? Why didn't VAR give a foul against Maguire when he had Azpi in a neck lock? It just allows for consistent manipulation.
  9. Chelsea vs Leicester City

    Wonder how VAR and Dean will do us tomorrow?

    I didn't see their first goal! And all of this after both Leicester and Liverpool got to play United within 3 days, so Leicester got to beat their reserves.

    No, not what I said. Just use your eyes though. After we had the nerve to have a VAR go our way with zouma on Sterling: Holding handles Mount's goalbound shot - VAR not interested Havertz clipped in the area - VAR doesn't check WBA score a perfectly good goal. Disallowed. Liverpool score after 94:30 when 4 minutes of added time were given And in the cup final, the Leicester player handles it and they score.
  12. Chelsea 0 Leicester City 1

    Particularly when the technology isn't precise Yes, in our pomp, we would overcome these decisions against "inferior" opponents. We have lots of talented players, but not enough c*ck and balls. We lost Costa and JT in the same summer. Warriors.

    Well, you can discount those. Charity Shield is just a frinedly The Super Cup against Liverpool and League Cup against City we played well, and could have won both against superior opposition, agreed. The 3 FA Cup finals we have lost, have all had bad refereeing decisions go against. Agreed, we didn't play that well in them, but I wonder how they would have gone if we had a fair ride. 2017 - Sanchez handles with both hands, basketball dribbles it through the defence, with Ramsey standing right in front of the keeper, who then goes to play but leaves it. We later have a man sent off and lose by a goal. 2020 - their GK handles outside the box, nobody cares, then Kova is sent off for being the same ref who did 2017 2021 - they handle it in the build up to their goal, then we have a goal chalked off for being an inch offside on a graphic where the ball has already left the guys foot. Don't get me wrong, in our pomp, we would have overcome these things, but you shouldn't have to overcome bad decision, after bad decision to win a finals. All we ask for is a bit of fairness.
  14. Premier League Run In - 2020/21

    We'd just beaten City away The refereeing decisions both against us and for Liverpool since then is nothing short of criminal.
  15. Premier League Run In - 2020/21

    Knew he wouldn't hold back, but who is listening? Sky still clearing up Tyler's jizz from the commentary box
  16. Premier League Run In - 2020/21

    And they're allowed to wait for their gk
  17. Premier League Run In - 2020/21

    Whenever we need a goal, the ref can't blow quick enough
  18. Premier League Run In - 2020/21

    94 minutes up.... Just keep playing lads.
  19. Premier League Run In - 2020/21

    Spurs winning is good for us. Keeps them interested until the last game at Leicester
  20. Chelsea 0 Leicester City 1

    That and no midweek football for a few months . Still lots of football to be played over the next two weeks
  21. Chelsea vs Leicester City

    Suddenly, this is a huge game for various reasons. Need to wrestle some momentum back
  22. Chelsea 0 Leicester City 1

    I'm stunned you don't seem to realise you need to score to win a game
  23. Chelsea 0 Leicester City 1

    We fail to score.... Again And the focus is on our gk. .
  24. Chelsea 0 Leicester City 1

    The gap between the lines is different at the linesman and the gap at Chilwell. The lines aren't parallel
  25. Chelsea 0 Leicester City 1

    So we score no goals in two games and our goalie is the problem? Wow.
