    VAR & New rules together chaos reigns

    Agree with the OP, we had another contentious decision this evening in the USA v Sweden game, which seems to be a poor review/interpretation in respect of the second USA goal, I really do not get how the USA player in an offside position and who is challenging for the ball, distracting a Swedish defender is not interfering with play. I also doubt that lessons will be learned. I am actually a fan of VAR but I am dreading it being used so poorly in the Prem as it has been in the Womens World Cup........

    Max Arrons will he or won’t he?

    I assume that A N Other will be their second, third or even fourth choice, so will they be as good as Max?.........

    Pukki

    Not saying there is anything in this, not saying we need to sell, not saying i want him sold.......just asking, given his age, what price would have you considering selling?........a purely hypothetical question........

    Pukki

    Benfica allegedly interested in Teemu Pukki, personally I want him to stay, that said what price would you be tempted to say yes too?, for me it would have to be at least £20M.........

    A couple of transfer rumours...

    Shame about the price tag, otherwise i would think he is exactly the type of player that would fit in to our system/ethos.......

    Saido Berahino

    Agree he appears to be toxic, but could a bit of man management from Daniel Farke be the answer?......

    OT - EU straw poll...

    Not really a 6 week old party, just UKIP re-badged, I suspect the electorate would like to see more than just one policy, in fact it would be good to see what Mr Farage has to say about the NHS amongst other things. In other news if my aunt had **** she would be my uncle........

    OT - EU straw poll...

    Not sure how a party with no MPs in Parliament is going to have much of a say on the final deal. As I said earlier Nigel "Conservative/UKIP/Brexit Party/I have never been elected as an MP" Farage would have happily ignored the will of the people had the EU Referendum result not gone the way he wanted, so we/he should not be surprised that those that wish to remain in the EU will continue their fight. The Conservatives and Labour need to equally worried about the Lib Dems and Green Party eating away at their core votes. This certainly has been a great night for democracy in the UK, with all but Northern Ireland to declare we see that the leave EU party polled 5.2m votes and the pro EU parties (I have left Labour and Conservatives out of the equation) polled 5.8M votes, this is reflected in the number of MEPs the two factions returned (29/27).........

    OT - EU straw poll...

    What the European Election results show is that nothing has really changed, there are no winners or losers, just a country split down the middle. Whether you are a Leaver or Remainer the sad truth is that this country is divided. The Brexit Party polled about 5M votes, which is 1M less than the number that signed the petition to revoke Article 50. Prior to the EU Referendum. Farage was on record as saying that if the result was a narrow majority to remain in the EU then the fight to leave would not be over (in other words he would not accept the democratic vote and the will of the people, presumably meaning UKIP would have campaigned for a second referendum). Given that it is clear that the split between those that want to leave the EU and those that wish to stay in the EU is extremely narrow it cannot be a surprise (using the Farage principle) that the fight to remain in the EU will continue. I find it strange that anybody can say that a vote for the Lib Dems, Green Party and SNP etc is anything other than an anti Brexit vote, I base this on the way the EU elections work in terms of seats allocated, there was a general acceptance that the Brexit Party would do well, so rather than vote Conservative or Labour (because the Conservatives are split between Leavers and Remainers and nobody really knows what the Labour position is,) voters who wanted to remain in the EU voted tactically for Lib Dem, Green etc to ensure their area at least got an MEP from parties that have declared their pro EU, and so it has transpired..........

    Football has kept me connected to the city

    I have mixed feelings about how the area around Riverside and the Carrow Rd look these days, I am all for change and I agree that the area looks better than when I was a kid (for the first 4 years of my life we lived on King Street opposite what was Reads flour mill), however I do not believe the area looks anything like the developers said it would. In the mid eighties a group of us used to meet in the Rosary Tavern for a pre match beer or three before walking down Riverside Rd to the ground, I remember billboards proclaiming the redevelopment of the area into something akin to a riverside Amsterdam with its narrow tall buildings etc, what we got is starkly different to that. When my parents first moved into King St, the first time there was a home game they found their back garden full of bicycles, and money to pay for the "parking" deposited on the window ledge, word gradually got round that a new family had moved in and despite Dad being happy for people to leave their bikes in the back yard (with no charge) the number of bikes left there dwindled until nobody left their bikes in the back yard, much different times then!. I love the city of Norwich and in the main I embrace the change, but for those of you who may want to reminisce about the Norwich of old, if you have not come across it before the link below takes you to a very good free resource...... http://www.georgeplunkett.co.uk/Norwich/
