Re: Dermot Gallagher exonerates us in all pen claims!!

I don't think he would’ve done in real-time while on the pitch. It’s a split second between the ball leaving Wood’s head and crossing the line. If he had ruled it out, everybody would be confused as to why he disallowed the goal. I don’t even think VAR would rule it out. I agree that, in the spirit...

Re: REPORT: Warnock rants as Clarets take the points

In all honesty, Darren Cann did flag and then move towards the corner flag, as is the instruction when awarding a penalty, however, there was a slight delay before he moved which, I presume, was because he was talking to Mike Dean through the comms system to say what he thought.

Re: Leicester v Newcastle

Thoroughly deserved win after a really good team performance. Leicester having 78% possession and only mustering one shot more than Newcastle and both had the same number on target. Newcastle now above Bournemouth but a win tomorrow sees us move up above them. Interesting times.
