    Arsenal v Leicester

    It looks like there's a bit of afters in the Vardy incident, the movement of his leg just doesn't look natural to me. But, that's after seeing it a few times. I don't think there's anyway to be 100% certain, and without that I dont think you could go red.

    Sheffield United - Tottenham

    I'm saying that an obvious goal scoring opportunity and a goal scoring opportunity are not the same thing. Harry Kane getting the ball just outside of the area and needing to take 3-4 touches before taking a shot is a goal scoring opportunity. Harry Kane getting the ball on the edge of the...

    Sheffield United - Tottenham

    A goal scoring opportunity is not the same as an obvious goal scoring opportunity.

    Sheffield United - Tottenham

    Are you talking about the same incident? The ball hits his hand, falls to Kane who takes 3-4 touches and scores, seems like a goal scoring opportunity to me. It's about 4 seconds between the ball hitting his hand and Kane scoring.

    Spurs Utd

    And yet he continues to pass the fitness test, otherwise he wouldn't be refereeing in the Premier League. The real question should be whether the fitness test used by PGMOL is good enough to make sure that referees are fit enough to keep up with the modern game. And also whether referees are...

    Bri V Ars

    It was a foul, but Leno was just unlucky that he landed awkwardly.

    Steve Evans hasn't given up hope of a last minute play off push. Whilst I think there's more chance of Satan going to work in a snow plough, stranger things have happened at sea. We might give Wednesday a wave as we go past on our way up...

    Virgin Game

    My first game was back in the heady days of September 2014. Not a great performance on any level, but, the standout moment was 17 minutes into the game there was a handball on the line. Clear as day, I had a perfect view, identified the culprit, isolated him, gave him a warning. Opposition...

    Haven't Burnley said they cod be out of business by August if the league doesn't restart, as all their sponsors etc will be clawing their money back.

    It will play out differently in different countries, and some countries will be further along the line than others. Even in the UK London is a couple of weeks ahead of the rest of the country, though obviously we haven't got different levels of lockdown for different parts of the country.

    I would be interested to hear your thoughts on how you think letting it "run its course" would play out. We know that doing nothing would result in hundreds of thousands of deaths, which are on top of "normal" deaths i.e people aren't going to stop getting cancer, having heart attacks, or...

    The health secretary said they were buying something like 1.5 million enzyme tests, so they could tell whether people have had it and recovered. The problem is testing everyone is difficult. I could go to my GP today and get tested for the virus, but then I could catch it from someone while...

    I think that's a big step in giving the Army etc power of arrest, the RMP, RAFP, and SP (Navy Shore Patrol) have powers of arrest but I think that only extends to service personnel. I think we'd be more likely to see a police officer teamed up with some squaddies, so they can spread the police...

    Could be quite substantial fines if we follow the lead of some European countries. Speaking to a guy in Spain they're handing out €600 fines for people put and about without a valid reason, and for things like having more than 1 person in a car etc. Taiwan fined a man $33,000 for "maliciously"...

    If they do decide to ban large gatherings, e.g. playing football matches behind closed doors or not playing them at all, I wonder what will happen to the club's affected. I imagine most club's in the EFL and below don't have much money to rely on if they're not getting gate receipts. If the...

    Performance enhancing substances

    But none of the things mentioned are banned, unless you got the beta blockers through dodgy channels e.g. they weren't prescribed for a genuine medical condition.

    I think the hope is that the move into spring and summer will see a reduction in flu cases, and that will reduce the strain on the NHS in the event of a major outbreak like Italy.

    Sin Bins - are you finding they help?

    I suspect that you will find that there is a subset of referees who are ignoring dissent, but they existed before the introduction of sin bins. You will also get referees who believe that sin bins are too much of a faff, and will caution for generic USB etc, rather than dissent specifically.

    To be fair that was 1918, and I'd wager that many people have never heard of it at any rate. Interestingly, experts believe that Spanish flu could have originated in a British camp in France, an American Army camp in Kansas, or, it originated in China and was bought to Europe by the Chinese...
