    Women's World Cup 2019

    Why ? What’s wrong with the French team that you’d like to see them humiliated?

    Women's World Cup 2019

    The thing is .. would the linesperson have flagged for offside in the absence of VAR ? They can be much more aggressive with offside calls knowing they have backup? Question - can they have a VAR review on a non offside call? I suppose so ?

    VAR: What is it good for?

    These are the same arguments used against the two ref system in in the NHL and NBA .. the issue faded as the refs got used to it. Presumably it should result in a harmonized view on what is and isn’t a foul.

    Women's World Cup 2019

    It appears Cameroon felt aggrieved that the VAR offside calls that went against them were not reviewed by the on field ref .. not that they had to be .. but it certainly would have looked better .. the old “it’s not enough to be fair .. it has to appear to be fair” thing. Not that that excuses...

    VAR: What is it good for?

    Hate it. I hate replay in all sports - with the exception of a goal line decision. As mentioned it robs the viewer of the immediacy of the event. In other words it’s stripping sport of the fan’s emotional response to what they experience. [/endoldmanshakinghisfistatthecloud] Add another...

    Did they change the rule ? The Canadian commentators mentioned something about it?

    Not that I’m rooting for Norway but I’m really hoping for Thorsdotter to hammer one home (ducking)

    Women's World Cup 2019

    Except the keeper was easily getting the ball first .. so it’s hard to claim denial of a scoring chance

    Norway has been coming on in the last 10 minutes or so ..And that was before the red .. so yes

    They don’t make them like they used to

    Women's World Cup 2019

    Looked like the bounce had a some reverse spin on it which caused the keeper to misjudge it - allowing the Cameroon striker in for the attempt and subsequent goal.

    Are the USWNT being unfairly criticized for their sportsmanship? Is it sexist?

    Regarding the sexist aspect of the controversy I’m sure their is quite a bit on display. That being said, as has been mentioned upthread, international soccer - both women and men - has historically had an unwritten agreement about avoiding excessive celebrations in blowouts. These summer...

    Liverpool 2019-2020: Let's Take About Six, Baby

    Also think Karius is staying in Turkey - the second half of the season was reportedly much better - and his pay dispute was resolved ( quite possibly not unrelated matters)

    Liverpool 2018-19: Alisson, I Know Lovren is Killing You

    I think Klopp is fine with his CB options - currently Lovren would seem to be #4 in the pecking order , and its an open question as to whether Lovren is fine with that. Given the dodgy health of the non-VVD CBs there seems to be plenty of playing time

    The Champions League Final: Liverbird vs. Cockerel

    I think Milner misses out .. although Klopp has - rather puzzlingly - left out Fabinho when everyone expected him to start. The main team questions would seem to be for Spurs .. does Harry start ? Do they sit Moura ? Do guys like Vertonghen make the starting lineup?
