    Fifa to take VAR off ifab?

    Any change in how VAR is applied has to be a positive. But yes, how they go about implementing it is interesting.

    Arsenal v Leicester

    i see where you are coming from and i was careful not to say anything about intent! i think if you start sending of for this then you set a dangerous precedent where the outcome dictates the punishment. the need for punishment should be based on what vardy had control over and the challenge for...

    Arsenal v Leicester

    not a red for me, catches him accidentally while he's off balance and falling. no offence, just unlucky

    Topical question

    i dont agree with @santa sangria's approach on this...however 'safe' or smart refereeing can be a good path to follow when the situation calls for is. if the players expect it or if it's going to lead to trouble a few seconds down the line, look after yourself, even if it's not strictly in line...

    Fair enough. Never seen a situation where I felt I'd need to do that!

    City Vs The Champions then

    fair enough. certainly been round the houses on this one... i doubt it is something you'd ever see formal clarification on though, i just dont think there's the demand for it

    City Vs The Champions then

    if he'd gone with his feet i bet he wouldn't have won the ball though

    City Vs The Champions then

    your description of the incident is fine. i agree a keeper cant have carte blanche to charge out of goal and do whatever he wants but to say that his action isnt necessary is irrelevant. his action stopped an attack and cleared the ball. it's simply his choice to challenge for the ball however...

    City Vs The Champions then

    i'm only saying it would need to be considered. i dont see the way ederson played the ball in the incident last night as dangerous. i dont see the way ederson played the ball in the game two years ago as dangerous.

    City Vs The Champions then

    keepers and strikers (or backtracking defenders) will always be converging at speed. they both want to win the ball, they'll both try and challenge fairly. you can argue what constitutes fair of course. i just dont see how you can penalise any player if that's what you'd do, then fair enough...

    did mane pull out to prevent in injury to himself? you see that situation in your next game, you're seriously penalising the keeper?

    City Vs The Champions then

    i just dont agree with penalising keepers for challenging for the ball legitimately (i'm saying a diving header at speed is legitimate) and winning the ball, or any player for that matter. when you ref a game you'll often get scenarios where a player will duck to head a ball below waist height...

    City Vs The Champions then

    i think the two situations are similar, but different. the ball height determines whether mane challenges safely or not

    City Vs The Champions then

    bearing in mind it was a diving header and the ball was not very high off the floor, i dont think mane could be penalised too harshly had he not pulled out and caught ederson. i dont want football to get to a place when you cant challenge someone who's decided to head the ball when it's...

    City Vs The Champions then

    i couldnt disagree more tbh a diving header is not putting his own safety at risk in that situation and more than diving at the feet of an attacker rushing towards him. it's part of the game. i think penalising him there would be a farce as would changing the laws to prevent it

    City Vs The Champions then

    i think mane pulling out is a good thing bearing in mind he put stitches in edersons head 2 years ago it's just a standard part of the game though, two players going for a ball, not sure what you can do to change it. seems farcical to penalise someone for winning the ball cleanly
