I watched a football farce tonight, without Leeds United even kicking a ball!

Liverpool’s televised FA Cup tie against West Brom became an embarrassment, after it was chosen to trial VAR – Video Assisted Referee.

I don’t like too much technical intervention in football, but have come to accept that goal line technology is here to stay.

What is worrying and, in my opinion, a step too far is VAR, as it proved this evening…

Throughout the first half at Anfield, the match was stopped on a number of occasions to disallow goals, give penalties and then award goals.

The biggest problem was that it took so bloody long. Those worried about VAR were reassured that it would take seconds for a decision to be reached. Instead, it took up to four minutes, while the referee spoke to a fellow official on this headset, over 200 miles away, at a secret location. It was all very 007. At one point, the remote official couldn’t make his mind up, leaving the original referee to watch a replay on a nearby television…

In one word- FARCE.

I would love it to be true if Manchester United’s new signing – Alexis Sanchez – missed a drugs test, while at Arsenal, and is punished by being banned for playing for his new club.

I think Mr. Wenger would enjoy it too…

Tonight, was the FA Cup draw, for the first round of the competition. As is tradition, it was broadcast, live on TV, from the home of one of the smallest remaining clubs in the cup – in this case, Hyde United.

While awaiting the draw, I noticed a familiar face in the crowd…

It looks like my tweet got a positive reaction. Mind you, Justin Bieber probably gets a million tweets, simply for saying he’s off to take a dump.

This is a great headline and news story

Thieves who broke into a football stadium and stole giant TVs raided fridges to stage a food fight…

Made me think what the staff must have thought when they discovered the burglary…

“Where’s the telly?”
“It’s scone!”

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
