    Wasn't sure where to put this but I thought it was an article about Klavan until I looked a bit closer...

    Marine vs Spurs is the only game i have an interest in this weekend. I’m getting through the mandelorian rather than watching any other games.

    Hopefully they make a game of it and cause Jose to go insane.

    Boring information time. The ref is a blue nose cunt who had Jeff Winter as a mentor. I worked with him about 20 years ago. He’ll never ref our games.

    I was listening on the radio as I was doing other stuff - even after each goal went in the commentators were still creaming themselves over what a genius Bielsa is. This bloke would blow the head off Roland Barthes.

    Unfortunately that second goal probably ends any glimmer of hope Marine had, sadly.

    Watched some Italian, Dutch and German footy this weekend seeing as the Premier League isnt on, and that we're on a 14 days social lockdown over here.
    Its baffeling how much better VAR is being used in the other leagues. In the games I've seen there have been little controversy, its taken a short amount of time and the right decisions have been made.
    The interpretation by the FA, how the refs use it and the quality of the refs would be my guess to why it doesnt work so well in the PL.
    They also didnt have that many replays of each incident. In the Ajax - PSV game, they had already done the tight VAR offside call while the replay of the goal was doing the usual rounds. Quick and efficient, and correct.

    The Premier League has a lot to learn from the other FA's and leagues regarding VAR.

    In regards to up and coming players. Antony at Ajax is gonna be some player. When Mo eventually moves on, he'd be a good fit.

    Not really, once you realise what idiots are in charge. It's like watching your thicko neighbour unpack a leaf blower from Groupon and start using it as a hairdryer. That's what happened to VAR in this country.

    Article: It was always a risk imposing the Liverpool way on League One players, but Neil Critchley’s vision has allowed Blackpool to add another chapter to their famous FA Cup history.

    There was surprise when Critchley left his job at Liverpool’s academy for Bloomfield Road, where a rebuild was necessary after the neglect of the Oyston years.

    It has been a gradual process, with Blackpool 13th in their division, but against Premier League opposition on Saturday, the education in training came to fruition.

    Sam Allardyce’s West Bromwich could not cope with the crisp, first-time passing of the underdogs, whose goals both came from slick moves that started in their own half.

    And though their place in the fourth round was ultimately secured on penalties, when goalkeeper Chris Maxwell made a hat-trick of saves, this was no smash-and-grab.


    Blackpool led twice through strike partners Jerry Yates and Gary Madine, and were only taken the distance by a debatable West Brom penalty after the ball had struck Ollie Turton’s arm at point-blank range.

    Critchley came to prominence when he took charge of Liverpool’s domestic cup ties while Jurgen Klopp was away with the first-team squad on Club World Cup duty. He joined Blackpool 10 months ago and in recording the biggest upset of Saturday’s games, he was pleased with their style as much as anything.

    ‘We sprang really good counter-attacks,’ he said. ‘The trick now is to take that form into the league. We have shown what we are capable of. We more than matched a Premier League team.’

    The partnership of 6ft 4in Madine and the skilful Yates is a further example of Critchley’s tactical awareness. Yates started the season struggling on the left, but the 24-year-old is on a roll now and has seven goals in 13 games.

    Naturally, Critchley would love to draw Liverpool in the fourth round — ‘that sounds nice’ — but his main concern is who will be fit to face Hull on Saturday with defender Daniel Gretarsson limping off and Grant Ward suffering blurred vision after a poke in the eye.

    Before then, goalkeeper Maxwell can be added to 1953 heroes Stanley Matthews and Stan Mortensen in the Seasiders’ Cup gallery. His story was made more remarkable by the fact he hadn’t played for three weeks after contracting Covid.

    He still doesn’t know how he and his wife got the virus. ‘You can catch it in the supermarket or the shopping you bring home. It is very serious. The way it affected me and my family was not good. Thankfully I came through it.’

    There was little good news for Allardyce, still looking for his first win as West Brom boss.

    He has always tried to use the January transfer window, keeping Crystal Palace up in 2017 after buying Luka Milivojevic and Patrick van Aanholt, and is looking for two strikers this month with Karlan Grant out injured and Charlie Austin off to QPR.

    Pereira, who missed the decisive kick in the shootout, is usually a winger but played up front. ‘I couldn’t risk Callum Robinson because if he’d got injured I would have no striker for Wolves on Saturday,’ said Allardyce.

    The laws of probability are leaning towards the FA Cup process not being a fully open draw
