Here's a novel idea... let's just act like the next transfer window will be crazier than the last. Year upon year we get told it is increasingly difficult, so, do we start each one assuming it will be like the previous, missing out the point that they found that one difficult?

Re: Wolves v Man Utd

Fans come second imo. The correct football decisions come first. Regardless of what fans think. For players to train all week to be done over by poor refereeing and then ignore the technology whats available is silly. There is too much riding on games to not use VAR.

Of course it does. What's the point of even going to a game if there is no emotion?

Imagine om future if fans and players just stand in silence waiting for a VAR check to confirm/deny a goal.

Re: England vs Australia 2nd test

Instead of Roy faffing about and ending up with a low score he might as well just play his normal game and try and get 30-40 runs with only a few overs gone.

Even if he gets out cheaply he's unlikely to last long by batting more slowly either way.
