Thread Name: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
I have not been able to watch this week's matches due to a problem with my Broadband. I think the comments on refereeing are fairly common.
In my experience in playing Rugby ( both Union and League),and Cricket
Any bad decisions that tend to go to the top sides. In RU certainly their was quite a lot of politics involved as the refs were pressured to favour the top teams.
Regarding the current football situation the top 6 teams are in a tight scramble for the top positions . Any poor decisions become more important.
I was able to get to the Etiad to watch Man City comfortably beat Everton to enable them to ( temporarly ???) take top spot. Liverpool
have a game in hand to re-take the top.
I wonder what Clopp will try to take an advantage....don't think he will get away with clearing the pitch !!!!
Looking forward to both the rugby and football matches coming up. There are some mouthwatering ones as the European Championship matches start after the recent brake.
