    VAR What is it good for?

    Another dreadful weekend for VAR. Goals disallowed, penalties awarded /not awarded , offsides measured to the nanometer, Red cards not given, red cards given .. I could go on and on but what’s the point. As a caveat I hate VAR .. it sucks all the immediacy from the game. I have to wait around...

    The Lightning Rod That is Allard Baird

    Great news .. Thoughts of Frank Wren and other possible candidates of his ilk were sending chills down my spine. Now they have to get rid of Baird and the jobs complete.
