By FIFA's own laws, Ramsey was

There's literally no argument. If Ramsey is heading off on his bike then it's fair game, he's not though, he's playing the ball. It's not even a hard decision to call, the linesman got it right instantly.

I don't begrudge the Arsenal win, Chelsea were pants before and after that decision. I'm just absolutely oblivious to what the referee has used to justify overturning a pretty simple decision.

Meh. I think it wasn't a goal because of the handball but we've won the FA Cup so I don't care that much

Re: Football Season 2016/2017

There's confusion because of tabloid FIFA rules brought up:

Quote:
at the moment the ball is played or touched by a
team-mate
They're omitting the team-mate part for whatever reason, just the usual cack though like the Mirror etc.

There's two separate reasons but I'm not begrudging them the win, it happens. It's more annoyance at the BBC saying the blokes had a cracking game. Then Ref's doing their utmost to protect it. Naturally there's been incidents in the past and we're supposedly ridding ourselves of criticism towards refereeing but if it isn't called out when it's wrong, how do you learn for the future.

In their opinion he's had a cracking game because he's sent Moses off for diving. Which in turn was indeed hilarious but two big decisions with a 50% ratio for the ref. As for the Handball, I think it is but I wouldn't be dead set on it either, it's an unnatural position but it happens rather quickly.

The biggest question of the day is really whether this is the end for Wenger or what?

Re: Football Season 2016/2017

It always make me laugh when people sing and dance about Celtic winning the treble.

Celtic do NOT have any strong competition in Scotland. If you took Celtic and Rangers out of Scottish football. It would collapse.

I said on this forum about 18 months ago, that when the season starts - give them TWO titles. One for the league and one for the Scottish Cup. And them challenge all the others in Scottish football to take it off them - there wouldn't be anyone, except Rangers, and at the moment they are playing rubbish.

This is why Tv companies wont invest a lot of money in Scottish football.

I used to watch a few games in Scottish Football, and it looked as though the ground was half empty.

Brendan Rodgers certainly took on a good job of winning titles, he will win them every year with Celtic.

Every season all the chairman of EPL clubs get together, the discussion comes up about Celtic and Rangers joining - not the rest of Scottish Football - just Celtic and Rangers join us in England. And it gets turned down.

This is not a dig at Scottish Football, its the truth. Money speaks, and sadly, money wont het invested

That should keep some of the vocal fair-weather Arsenal supporters quiet for a while.
