  1. I thought VAR was pretty good when it was used in the World Cup finals. To be honest I think now they've just tried to be too clever. Offside - the absolutist millimetre measurement has created a farce - football is a game of movement; question should be did the attacker clearly gain an advantage from being offside, not was his elbow a centimetre closer to goal than the defender Also think they've made a real mess of handball.

  9. apart from not scoring, that half exceeded my expectations. we didn't concede, didn't get pulled apart much - not bad
  10. not sure what we'll witness this evening, you'd have to fancy Sevilla to score a couple of times
