Hello all, with the new season's around Europe starting in a couple of weeks and the sad death of Sir Bobby Robson I thought it would be a good time to start a new topic. Obviously Real Madrid and

Ronaldo is ridiculous. Him and Messi are the best ever. Shove Maradonna up your arse

I know Bolton play negatively but jesus, I am sick of the Bolton fans moaning about Megson.  Give him a chance, he has stabilised your club.  Even if he is not the answer you respect that you will be

Barca have signed some awful players in the last few years. That's because they're skint. Neymar to united in the summer. Step aside Barca. No match for United.

Sure, Neymar wants to play Euro League next season...

Bayern have been completely fucked over in that tie tbh.

is Ronaldo the best goal scorer of all time?

True. Referees were pretty bad, especially against Bayern. The red card was a joke as well.

sending off - i can understand, but the offside goal? clowns.

It was a difficult decision. You don't just see the play stopped and decide if it's offside or not. If you see the video in regular speed bayern players have covered ronaldo in a blink of a second after the pass was made. It's like in the Ramos own goal lewa was offside but it was a close call you don't see anyone complaining about that.

It wasn't - mainly because he was coming from an offside position in the first place - that makes it alot easier. The linesman should clearly be able to see that he was already in an offside position for a few seconds before the ball was played and was trying to bring himself back to level (but never did).

have a look at the 6 second mark: https://u.nya.is/nsrwxv.mp4

The Ramos own goal was much much harder to call because of the cover.

The problem is there used to be far less of these wrong decisions in the past.

Is the game harder to officiate now? are the officials worse? maybe a bit of both.

All I know is we can't continue to have so many big games decided by wrong decisions, it's getting ridiculous now.

Yeah man but look at the guy with 11(douglas costa?) it immediately seems like he covers ronaldo doesn't it?

I'm not saying it wasn't offside or the refereeing in both games was good. I think mistakes have happened for both sides though.

He does - but the linesman should be looking at the current player standing offside in the first place. Through the entire time Costa is moving from left to right, Ronaldo is still offside (and buy a good amount).

Yeah I'm not saying refereeing was good I'm just saying it wasn't good for madrid or bayern. It was bad for both sides. In the end real won and went on the next round. While in psg vs barca it was only bad against psg.

I think its been bad for the last few years - i used to be against technology, but now that the standard is really poor - time to bring it in to assist them. I think offside goals should favour the attacking team - like a body part should be in line and greater accuracy with handballs/second yellow cards. These ruins games for everyone. I saw a video this morning of a linesman giving offside from a throw-in. Its unacceptable in this modern age.
