Including one which handed spuds his obvious replacement, it's almost like he was sabotaging them in the end! Big fat Sam has ruled himself out btw, he's not sure he can save them from relegation

He's not very good, ask any Cardiff fan and I've never really got this nice guy argument, why is he nice because he's always enthusiastic and smiling, for me that's not nice it's annoying, he's a fast show sketch waiting to be written, actually didn't they have an over enthusiastic teenage character from Manchester who loudly said everything was BRILLIANT, nice guy or annoying?

Semi-automated offsides trialled at Fifa Arab Cup and could be used at 2022 World Cup

The use of technology to help officials make more accurate offside decisions will be tested at the Fifa Arab Cup, which starts on Tuesday.

"Semi-automated offsides" work using between 10 and 12 cameras which collect up to 29 data points for every player 50 times per second.

If it spots a potential offside an alert is sent to the video assistant referee (VAR), who has the final call.

The technology could be used at the 2022 Fifa World Cup.

"VAR has had a very positive impact in football and the number of major mistakes is reduced, but there are areas where it can be improved - and offside is one of them," said Pierluigi Collina, Fifa's chief refereeing officer.
It's only a trial, but we know that if FIFA want it, it will happen.

Is it a good thing that will improve the 'spectator' sport, or yet another improvement that causes frustration and slows the game down?

Is football now entering the stage where everything needs to be closely scrutinised, double checked and verified by independent officials . . . how long before referees and linesmen are redundant, and everything is decided by computers?

It's bull shit and turns me off the game, you get the hard of thinking parroting off side is off side without stopping to think what off side is actually for, it's not because someone's arm or foot is an inch ahead of a defender, it's to stop an unfair advantage being gained
