Yep , somebody somewhere wanted Arsenal to score that penalty, come what may
That for me is yet just one more reason to hate VAR.

Every single Penalty taken by every single team you see both sides Encroaching into the box, so why are all of them not retaken?

But is it a so called lesser team that gets that decision, no it's one of the so called big boys. :asleep:

Utter b*llocks.

I believe the law is that if the player encroaches and then influences the outcome then it is retaken

Similar to Rice, one of the Norwich players who encroached cleared it after the save

That is my understanding of the review process anyway

2-1 Norwich now

Based on this performance it’s difficult to see why Norwich are in the position they’re in.

Because they are like us, and generally only seem to get up for the games against, the so called top six.

That Norwich v Arsenal game was really enjoyable to watch, Norwich just kept going and going and with a bit of luck could have won 5 -2

Leicester City 2-1 Everton. Last minute winner for LC.

Silva next to be sacked likely. Or perhaps even OGS as Man United have only drawn with Villa 2-2 at home.

14 games into the season and Both Man United and Arsenal only have 4 wins apiece.

Leicester City fan on radio 5 asked was this question...

"If Rodgers gets you into the Champions League this season is that a better achievement than Raneri winning you the Premier League title"

Leicester City fan "Rodgers getting us into the Champions League would be the better achievement"

That same fan has now just said getting into the Champions League is harder than winning the Title.

A great win for West Ham Ladies today. They needed that.

How come Chilwell wasn’t booked for diving?
Went down screaming like he’d been shot...VAR says no contact. Surely that’s simulation?
Is it still only Lanzini that’s been done for diving?

Ammo here, (I'm a female by the way). Yes, it is me that hates Leicester. This season is once again killing me, just like when they won the league. I'm just keeping everything crossed that Liverpool keep on winning and I know that that will not be a popular statement on here but it's personal for me.

I can't watch them on TV, it winds me up. They just have so much luck with everything - VAR, no injuries, most of the usual front runners playing badly (exactly the same as the year they won the league). They sack their managers (I think they were mid table last year when they sacked Puel) and it all turns out rosy for them. I'm a season ticket holder at West Ham (for 25+ years and counting, no breaks when we went down) and go to around 50% of our away matches (dependent on points), been to Brighton, Bournemouth, Villa, Watford and Chelsea so far this season, going Wolves and Saints next. My wife and her family share 2 season tickets at LCFC between 4 of them (they got these when they returned to the Prem, picked their matches before then). My wife went to 2 away games last season and has been to one this season, and she easily got a 3 tickets for our game at the LS on 28th Dec! I put in the hours, they don't. I stick with my team when the chips are down and we are on a bad run. Don't get me started on the difference between the owners either! The clappers....Vardy.....oh God, you have got me started!

Oops Sorry. My apologies. :thup:


Have to confess I was one of many that got involved in the romance of the outsiders winning the Premier League but ever since they have I find their fans to be totally insufferable.

That said my god do I wish we had owners like theirs.
