Fucking hell Mad Jack anyone would think Lamela started a football club in Miami the way you keep banging on about him.

Score more goals than they do.

I know some football fans are biased to the point of comedy, but this is one of the biggest displays of spouting pure bollocks I've seen in a while, so fair play for that at least😂

Very enjoyable for the neutral, DLC is on fire at the moment. 

Some pretty shocking officiating again, that Pickford tackle was awful. 

Everton looking decent otherwise - Liverpool should've won this, but they've definitely got something about them.

Pickford can't have been sent off, cos offside supersedes serious foul play.

Not according to Peter Walton. So yes, you're correct.

Richarlison got sent off after the whistle went for the foul on Mane so he should have still been on the pitch. Awful reffing all round <_<

Well, no one can ever make LiVARpool jokes again, at least.

I suppose these things equalise out. 
 

Again though, not really VAR’s fault - either of them. It is all about the rules. First one can’t be a red card due to the nature of the incident after an offside. Second one is offside under the rules. Should those be looked at? Probably. But VAR can only follow the guidelines that the rule makers have come up with. For better or worse.

On the plus side, Liverpool are five goals better off compared to their last game 👀

Footballers should just chop their arms off from the elbow down. Only way to avoid shite VAR decisions

If Pickford did this it wouldn't make him any worse.

That was a supremely annoying watch, I have to say.

Mane wouldn't have been given as offside if he had Pickford's arms

I'm in a group chat featuring one other Everton fan and a fuck load of Liverpool fans. My notifications are full of bad words. End of the day though, VAR is excellent and it was the right decision. :shifty:

Doesn't count if it goes in your favour

In situations where:

  • a player in an offside position is moving towards the ball with the intention of playing the ball and is fouled before playing or attempting to play the ball, or challenging an opponent for the ball, the foul is penalised as it has occurred before the offside offence
  • an offence is committed against a player in an offside position who is already playing or attempting to play the ball, or challenging an opponent for the ball, the offside offence is penalised as it has occurred before the foul challenge

The rules in question.

That's a dumb rule. Players should just go for leg breakers when someone's playing for balls in offside positions.

Like if that was a normal type of tackle fair enough but doing scissor tackles which are gonna likely injure someone should be punished whether it is offside or not

Yep. The rule is really dumb. Now seeing people on twitter, apparently going off the ref on BT, saying it was violent conduct, but it can't be that either: 

Spoiler

VIOLENT CONDUCT

Violent conduct is when a player uses or attempts to use excessive force or brutality against an opponent when not challenging for the ball, or against a team-mate, team official, match official, spectator or any other person, regardless of whether contact is made.

In addition, a player who, when not challenging for the ball, deliberately strikes an opponent or any other person on the head or face with the hand or arm, is guilty of violent conduct unless the force used was negligible.

So then Richarlison shouldn't have been sent off? His tackle was a (terrible) attempt at the ball after play had already been stopped.

No - because Liverpool had been given a free kick for a foul by Yerry Mina. The VVD incident is different, because under Rule 11:

Quote

In situations where:

  • a player moving from, or standing in, an offside position is in the way of an opponent and interferes with the movement of the opponent towards the ball this is an offside offence if it impacts on the ability of the opponent to play or challenge for the ball; if the player moves into the way of an opponent and impedes the opponent's progress (e.g blocks the opponent) the offence should be penalised under Law 12
  • a player in an offisde position is moving towards the ball with the intention of playing the ball and is fouled before playing or attempting to play the ball, or challenging an opponent for the ball, the foul is penalised as it has occurred before the offside offence
  • an offence is committed against a player in an offside position who is already playing or attempting to play the ball, or challenging an opponent for the ball, the offside offence is penalised as it has occurred before the foul challenge

That last bullet point is what happened with VVD.

      Wild and bold predictions, ahoy.
    • By Lineker
      Regarding that line about us - I imagine that we will be refused that by the Premier League and we'll end up on the road for the first four games - which is fine.
      Predictions! Some seemingly obvious, some bold and unlikely to actually happen...
      Top 4 - Man City, Spurs, Man Utd, Liverpool. In a lot of ways I see it being a re-run of last season at the top. Emery improves Arsenal but they still fall short of cracking back into the CL spots. Chelsea struggle due to being so delayed with everything this summer (Conte's prolonged goodbye, unknown futures of Hazard and Courtois). Wolves finish in the top half of the table. Cardiff, Huddersfield, and Southampton to go down. Warnock wins the sack race; dismissed by Christmas
    • By Lineker
      Fixtures for the new Premier League season will be released at 9am tomorrow morning, so let's make some predictions for the new season which will probably look stupid in six months or so: 
      Spurs will only scrape top-4 due to the Wembley effect. Pep's Man City will struggle again due to Ederson failing to settle. Arsenal to finish 6th. Huddersfield and Brighton will survive. Newcastle will be relegated with a different manager in place by Christmas. Watford will be relegated. Bournemouth will finish above Southampton. Bilic or Puel will be the first manager to be sacked. Talking of Newcastle...

      Fixtures for the new Premier League season will be released tomorrow morning, so let's make some bold predictions for the new season ahead: 
      Leicester will only manage a top-ten finish. Chelsea will only make the Europe League spots at best. Top 4 of Man City, Man Utd, Spurs and Arsenal. In what order I have no idea. Liverpool will just miss out towards the very end of the season. Watford to continue to struggle under a new manager, particularly if one of Deeney or Ighalo leave, and get relegated. Bournemouth build on last season and do well again. Hull to straight back down to the Championship with Middlesborough. Burnley to just scrape survival, at the expense of... let's say Crystal Palace. Koeman's Everton to finish below his old club Southampton despite spending a metric fuckton of money. Pulis (WBA) or Guidolin (Swansea) to be sacked first.

      So yeah, it was kind of getting lost in the talks of actual football, but if you'd like to join the EWB Fantasy Premier League, the code is below. Use this thread for fantasy team discussions and such.
