Did Anfield yesterday, a very impressive beast of a stadium, absolutely dwarfing Goodison Park in the distance (or was it just far away??)
Anyone else done any good ones, apart from PR of course?

Well that was a pretty good half of footy, unspoilt by VAR.

Assuming we are stuck with VAR, what do we think will come next to 'improve' football to make sure it is 99.99999% accurate, as opposed to just 99.9999%?
I'll go for a full body suit with headgear, that contains thousands of pressure sensors able to measure the force of contact between players, perhaps similar to the 'snickometer' in cricket, so when there is a contentious foul, video can be matched with audio/pressure readings to see how firm/light the contact was.
Or mind-reading - a player will know if they've committed a foul and will be thinking along the lines of 'Oh sh!t, thats a pen', so once the technology is available to read the players thoughts, it could be used to help the ref/VAR people make their decision.
There you go UEFA/FIFA, you can have those for free. Well, actually I'd like a few million for coming up with the ideas please.

Penalty to France (it wasn't)
France miss penalty.
Give France a second chance as keeper moved .000001 second before ball was kicked.

Aussies just been awarded a goal after ref checked VAR - Aussie player was offside when a cross went in, but it was a header from a Brazil defender for the goal.

Anyone watching this on BBC4?
Bit late now, but worth watching on the iplayer if you get a chance, really interesting.

Got to want them to win - Matt Holland is their cox!

Haven't seen a thread on this drama yet, standards are slipping. Must be all the football stuff getting in the way...
Anyway, another superb BBC drama, catch up on the iplayer if you haven't seen it yet. Great storyline and superb acting.

Sorry, boring thread, and please feel free to tell me to p1ss-off to mumsnet, but how have I got to my stage in life and never used degreaser in a kitchen before?
The stuff is amazing, it er, totally gets rid of grease with minimal effort. I've always struggled with basic cleaning products, cloths, sponges, scourers until now.
Nasty stuff though, wear a mask, or ventilate the area, and wear rubber gloves when using it, that's for sure.
That's all, just thought I'd share.

Interesting program just starting on BBC2, looking back at the last decade.
|Just finished reading the Kevin Beattie Story|
at 19:07 15 Jan 2019
I know I'm a bit behind the times, but what a superb read - a must for any true Town fan. I never knew he almost signed for the budgies once his time here was over - well done to the club for refusing to release his registration!
Such a shame his career at Ipswich and with England was cut short by bad injuries and probably even worse advise/handling of those injuries by medical professionals at the time.
I've googled 'Kevin Beattie statue fund' but couldn't find a link to donate - anyone got a link to the website for that please?

Just heard on the Quest EFL show, he spend most of the game holding his wrist - I guess that was when he went through into the SAR in the first half? Can't keep the man down!

Ordered ticket last night, still hasn't come through.
Spoke to ticket office about an hour ago, they said emails are going through, anyone else having problems/got theirs?
|Does anybody know if there's a way|

to have ones love of ITFC - or football in general - surgically removed?
If so, I want to book an appointment. Can't stand this constant disappointment, the negativity, knowing we can't score goals, can't defend, expecting to lose to a lower league (but not for long) team in the once great FA Cup.
Up til this point my 'optimism' was that we'd do OK next season, now I'm even starting to doubt that - I know that was just a cup game, but if we can't put up a decent show now, what hope is there for next season?
I don't want to bother with the rest of the FA Cup games today - don't want to see MoTD to have it rubbed in our noses even more.
I know I'm over reacting, I know it's only football, but I really wish I could forget all about ITFC until this time next year, when maybe - just maybe, things will be better.

Another 12 games or so and it will be confirmed, better than slipping into the bottom 3 on the last day of the season.
We'd probably go and win all the remaining games afterwards though, once the pressure's off, which would be nice - don't want to finish bottom.
