The definition of a complete and utter wanker. Man U seem to have an abundance of them.

What a prick!

This.

I hope he gets eaten by a shark

A shark with a fire extinguisher, surely? 😉

Mark Robins does realise that Coventry won an FA Cup after coming back twice doesn't he?

Coventry 3-3 Man Utd (2-4 pens): Mark Robins says FA Cup semi-final will be talked about forever

Edit: Although Mark Robins only states they will talk about this game for some time, it is Guy Mowbray who states the above line. Very disingenuous from the BBC.

Barcelona coach Xavi was furious after VAR officials could not prove that Yamal's effort had crossed the line.

"It's a disgrace," said Xavi, complaining that the goalline technology used in other top flights including the Premier League is not available in La Liga.

"If we want to be the best league in the world we have to advance in this sense, you have to put in the technology."

Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen agreed with his coach.

"It's shameful for football, I don't have the words," said the Germany international.

"There's so much money in this world and there's no money for what's most important."

Kind of hope this is just a partial quote or something lost in translation (ie 'game/sport' rather than 'world')

I would have read it to mean the world (of Spanish football).

I remember him running the show at Villa Park against us in the Championship when he was at QPR.

That decision against Barca would make Forest explode as a team. But you aren't getting those calls in the Bernabeau against the establishment's team. Luckily its not a la liga decider.

Yep, one of those standout performances where you think 'we need to sign him'.

Like Eidur Gudjohnsen in the 2000 FA Cup Semi for Bolton against us.

The problem with Eze not being chosen for England is that we do have an abundance of attacking talent, it's just that Marcus Rashford hasn't been anywhere near one of them for quite a while now but will definitely get picked.

Forest's appeal against their points deduction is heard on Wednesday. I'm sure their little outburst will make the panel look at them really favourably.

Yes, you have to wonder if they have thought it through. They have Clattenburg as a consultant as well.

Although Forest are being ridiculed for claiming VAR is biased - you have to admit there are certain decisions, even with all their hi tech and freeze frame gizmos you just think...hang on a minute?

It usually involves Cite£, Pl o p and the red filth

At least 2 of the 3 pen claims were legitimate to at least to have spent a little time looking at them.

The first one, well PGMOL have already mentioned those ones where a player puts their foot in front of the defenders challenge should be challenged with the ref if it was given on-field after a spate of them.

The second one, handball is subjective but how un-natural was Youngs arm position. The grealish one was more of a claim then that one.

So that leaves the third and probably most obvious one, but then I look at the penalties Watkins didn't get for similar challenges through the back of him so as with the others, I have seen them not given.

And you could argue two of the worst VAR decisions have gone against Liverpool and Citeh this season with the VAR offside ruling and the foot in the chest ruling.
