    Why is Barnes allowed jump at the ball like he’s jumping into a ruck?

    I was trying to describe myself to someone

    I'm glad someone else is enjoying the refereeing tonight.

    Godfrey got penalised for being the stronger man. The refs are a joke, man.

    If our goal was disallowed why wasn’t that a penalty? I swear to god I don’t understand referees.

    United really need to score while they're on top.

    Pogba is really proving me wrong. I wanted him banished from the first team after his agents comments haha.

    I understand why Burnley have to play like this against top teams, but christ do I wish 10 behind the ball catenaccio Brexit hoof ball got in the bin. Never enjoyed a single Burnley game I've ever watched.

    The worst part is they have a reputation for being “hard men” but they go down so easily.

    Gotta be a concussion sub there? They're allowed to do it now aren't they?

    If Newcastle and Burnley get relegated, maybe teams will stop thinking they can bore everyone to death every weekend, show absolutely zero ambition, and still survive.

    Added time was incredibly odd in the game tonight. There Brady/Shaw VAR check took 6 minutes to sort, but the ref added 4 minutes on and blew up after the 4 minutes. Then 4 minutes added at the end of the game but he played 7?

    Watched after recording it and can’t believe they pulled the play all the way back to give Shaw the card. I didn’t really see an issue on Magauire header. All in all though top of table ole at the wheel tell me how does it feel

    My only wish is I die real Prestigious

    Cant speak for Pool fans, but this is the biggest game between these sides in what feels like more than a decade.

    It’ll be a fun two years until Raiola decides he wants Haaland at Real.

    I’ve thought for a while that he would be a perfect fit at Barcelona. Hope this happens.

    Did the English FA actually respond to the comments made by the Uruguayan FA and CONMEBOL? Or did they just pretend they did the right thing with the ban?

    They doubled down and blamed the club for not giving him a social media training course.

    Which should probably happen to be fair, regardless of if this is right or wrong.

    I also find it a little hard to believe he wouldn’t know not to say what he said, considering he has been in Europe so long and saw what happened to Suarez.

    So you mean he should change the way they speak in Latin America just because people that don't speak the language and don't have a clue about the culture don't feel offended?

    I agree that he should have gotten some kind of media training but he should still be able to speak to his countrymen the way they do. It's really none of the FAs business and it's actually pretty xenophobic in itself to ban him for that.

    That’s not really shocking. I’d say most top teams have done something similar.
