Re: Congratulations John McGreal

A free transfer masterclass from Cotterill.

He was everything we needed and his signing was a key reason that prevented us being relegated imo. Hope he has an absolutely stonking career, I was a teen when he played so I remember him fondly.

I like to think we'll always show appreciation where due.

Re: VAR - Off the wall idea

Talk about asking for the impossible. There are always going to be subjective decisions in football and until the rules are 100 percent black and white I don't see that changing with or without VAR.

How can you eliminate subjectivity from, for example, handball/ball to hand?
