Re: NEVER EVER

Bigger gripe than it being a penalty or not was how the **** there was 5min added time. Gutted but first half was fantastic and if we play like that we will be fine this season!

Chelsea performed well for a long stretch of their opening game, a bit naive yes but some nice stuff... same against Liverpool midweek. Still two losses, I think they’ll do quite well this year even without Hazard.

Re: Arfield scores for Rangers

We have moved on but I would have always liked to see Arfield in the “number 10” position Hendrick was put for a chunk of time, I think Arfield could have excelled there.

Either way, great player for us and now playing well for Rangers.

Not really that surprised. Gray was offside all of the time too - both players try to make runs in behind. Our build up play is often either quite laboured and delayed or it’s rushed.

Same issues with VAR, takes ages to make a call. There’s no way a player should be lined up about to take a penalty (a couple of minutes after the decision) only to be told VAR has intervened and changed the decision.

Looks like it could be the right call BUT shouldn’t take as long as that.
