Quote from: nrico2006 on April 12, 2024, 04:32:46 PMFrom a movie perspective, the plot is not original though.

I watched Lincoln after I saw JFK. Terrible hammy writing at the end, assassinating a president like that! Been done years ago!

BBC making two more seasons of the terrific The Night Manager. Will be interesting to see what they come up with without any Le Carre source material.

Quote from: johnnycool on April 05, 2024, 10:49:40 AMIn fairness to Dalot, yeah he let yerman get the wrong side of him, but he slipped, pure accident but penalty all the same.

You're letting him off the hook here. Pretty sure they gave the penalty in the end for Dalot clipping him with his right foot and this is what sent Madueke down. He got absolutely burnt for it. Dalot's tumble was subsequent to that and there was minimal further contact. Think that's what VAR was looking so closely at.

Absolutely nothing between the ears on her either. How on earth she's become a big hitter is beyond me. If David Simpson wasn't busy waving his pipe all over Upper Bann, I suspect he'd still be in Westminster and she'd still be a mid tier MLA that very few people paid any heed to.

Ironically, that was a much better United performance than the Brentford game.

Having conceded the penalty, United just froze. Chelsea had a 4/5 on one for the move that led to the corner before Sterling and Jackson managed to f**k it up. Palmer had been sitting in that spot for corners all night and they were miles off him. Just let him have a crack. Awful.

If you're 3 points up very late on in a game, you put the ball over the bar.

Quote from: lurganblue on April 03, 2024, 02:58:40 PMToss a coin to decide direction of play. Youve played a whole match with that ref, deal with it.

You've had a whole match and extra time with the opposition team and that ref. Why should you keep playing?

Quote from: thewobbler on April 01, 2024, 11:03:05 AMReferees have been called back, at the next break in play, by umpires and linesmen to discuss off-the-ball incidents, since forever and a day. Some will act on their fellow official's advice and administer cards, some will not. But I don't yet think I've ever seen the previous passage of play cancelled as a result of the retrospective card / cards.

I think some people have been watching too much association football and its bizarre and erratic implementation of VAR, and gotten confused.

Nah, common sense really. Throw ball should be the next step at a minimum.

And what if from the resultant passage of play, a high ball goes in, two players challenge awkwardly, then get up off the floor and beat the reed out of each other in front of the referee?

Is it commonsense to ignore that passage of play too and just take the game back to a free for Derry where Fenton's lash out took place?

You can come up with as many obscure scenarios as you want, point is that it doesn't seem right that Dublin get the 45 after one of their players commits a foul that warranted a red card.

It might not "seem right" but then your issue is with the rules in this instance, not Conor Lane's application of them. You can't expect a ref to make up rules on the fly because you think the rule as is is shit. Take it up with congress.

Quote from: Wildweasel74 on April 01, 2024, 02:53:32 AMThe free at the end of normal time, not even remotely a free. Allowing Dublin to take the 45 which lead to the goal after Fenton send off is mysterious to say the least. I thought it should been a throw up ball at least  from where that incident occurred. There were 2 High tackles on McFaul and McAvoy which were obvious fouls and Lane let both go.

Has already been explained here by a referee. There were plenty of questionable decisions in Derry's favour as well.

Quote from: Jell 0 Biafra on April 01, 2024, 12:32:21 AMAlso looking forward to a few years of Dublin/Derry rivalry to come, based on today.

Derry very good underage at the minute too. Last year's minors were outstanding.

Quote from: Mario on March 31, 2024, 10:40:27 PMhe's so attacking in everything he does.

Is he really? Most of the time he just takes and gives a handpass. You almost never see him attack the way someone like Rafferty (or even Morgan) does.

Quote from: imtommygunn on March 31, 2024, 10:24:04 PMSmall booting mccloskey deserves a ban. Dirty act.

Is that what happened? Yet to see anything conclusive. Camera focused on him coming out (maybe thought he'd got the goal) and then he swerves off to the right and next time camera is on him a few seconds later he has McCloskey.

On League Sunday they briefly showed three of them running out and they seemed to specifically target McCloskey, so there must have been some previous. Lahiff one of them according to O'Sé. Small obviously not one of them so did he see his teammates in a 3 on 1 and decided they needed some help?

Have seen a lot of commentary online about Glass "putting manners on him" and the like. Not sure I've seen anything to suggest that. Bit of rolling around, nobody bossing anyone else

Whelo is right, there'll be serious words in the Dublin camp over that nonsense at the end. Having just lost Fenton, going another man down with a chance of ref playing on was crazy.

Don't understand why so many are clamouring for a square ball. Do people genuinely not know the rule?!

Lynch for me is a bit of a particular worry for Derry going forward. He doesn't look comfortable on the ball out the field when he's under anything resembling pressure. Normally he's just linking play with nobody near him but if there's an opponent close and he has to carry it past someone he looks vulnerable. Flapped badly at the ball coming in that gifted Basquel the goal and then for the equaliser he was in no mans land once the second chance came in.

Dublin will still rightly be favourites and McCarthy in particular will be crucial to have back. If all their big guns are firing, still not sure anyone will live with them but knock one or two of them off their stride and they're simply not the same team at all. Con, dives aside, was largely unseen all day and Kilkenny and Fenton were both very quiet.

Lads would you ever give over. Fenton charged at him off the ball and hit him with a raised forearm in the neck. No other option than red.
