    Not unlucky. Not clever.

    ??? A business model that, unlike all others that it can be compared to realistically, makes money. A business that buys assets cheaply (or creates its own) and sells high. A business that has long term ambitions to sustain and improve rather than plunge itself into uncertainty and debt. Yeh that’s sounds crazy. Its also a business that, whilst commendably going against the grain, is producing some fantastic entertainment from some hidden gems and talented youngsters. Anyone not proud of that and just wants money money money and instant success is just unfortunately all too typical of football fans these days. I pity you and am glad I’m not one of your ‘funny bunch’.

    No such thing as an established PL team for the vast majority of clubs. Ask Stoke, West Brom, Swansea, Wigan, Sunderland etc etc (and possibly soon to be Bournemouth). Having seen the way in which we’ve gone down in the past and the way it’s hampered our finances (who knows exactly how important the sale of Maddison was at the time), I’m proud of the approach now being taken by the club. Are fans not proud too that we’re supporting ourselves through self funding, that we’re bringing through young talent and playing some wonderful football along the way? It’d be great to see us strengthen the squad with some quality signings, but that will cost a lot of money and money the club have been clear about that we just won’t spend. Some great talent has been found and brought in (Buendia, Vrancic, Hernandez, Trybull etc) but finding those sort of gems that would immediately step up to the PL level was always going to be a bigger ask. Yes I’d love for us to remain in the Pl for many years to come but I can recognise how great a coach and setup we have. Just watching Luton v Millwall and then 1p5wich v Wycombe I was already so grateful I was then on my way to CR to watch some proper football. Grateful we have a board and sporting director that hasn’t panicked and gone down the route of getting an old has been of a manager who would try and lump our way to survival and then either send us down anyway, leave us starting all over again or else, keep us up but bore us into submission with long ball defensive football. How anyone can question Farke is, quite simply no football fan but an impatient glory hunter. Theres frustrations, warranted criticism and lots of ups and downs supporting any team but when I look at the bigger picture, the future and the football I get to watch each week, I still count myself lucky with how the club is being run.

    Villa fall foul of VAR

    That’s pathetic. Surely no one (including those implementing these crazy decisions during the games) agree or want football reduced to this. So just get off your ****, change the rules (there’s been plenty of ideas, all of which are better than the mayhem and chaos occurring at the moment) and give the fans their football back.

    Liverpool VAR

    the clear and obvious bit doesn’t apply to offsides. You are either offside or not. There’s no grey area.....supposedly

    Liverpool VAR

    I agree

    Liverpool VAR

    Football, along with all sport, exists for entertainment. Whats entertaining about seeing some lovely moves that result in goals chalked off because someone’s beard was offside? Is the technology good enough to know the split second the ball leaves a players boot to then draw the offside line? Or the millimetres that is the difference between off and onside in some cases? Cricket has got it spot on. A review based system that has the important element of ‘umpires call’ that exists because those setting the laws of the game understand that technology can’t be trusted 100%. Let the humans officiate the game and use technology for ‘clear and obvious errors’, even for those supposedly non subjective decisions. Cricket is a sport full of clear cut, right or wrong decisions, yet it has umpires call as they’re not stupid enough to assume technology will always get every decision spot on. Cricket also managed to introduce help for the umpires whilst maintaining (and even enhancing) the entertainment of the sport. Football really is run by idiots. Either radically reform the whole VAR process, or get rid. It’s not football anymore.

    Is the technology that good that they can differentiate between millimetres and know the precise millisecond the ball left Vrancics foot? There must be a margin of error and that’s why the ‘clear and obvious error’ line is in the VaR description. So why the f*** was that perfectly good, beautifully worked goal disallowed? I’m never going to understand that decision, except they simply don’t want Norwich upsetting the PL big boys

    I so so hope we deservedly go on to win this. i don’t want to hear how well we played but that VAR has robbed us. You owe us a decision now Mr Friend and whichever muppet is hiding away hundreds of miles away on their tv screen

    That was a clear and obvious error apparently

    It’s simply not football. We deserve to be 2 up, we should be 2 up. VAR needs to f*** off

    I don’t understand. He wasn’t offside. Have the laws changed because the explanation that sky have been given makes no sense. He came back from an offside position.....to an onside position when the ball was played!
