Adelaide United vs Western Sydney Wanderers 27/12/2019 7:00PM

Recommended Posts

The way the rules are being interpreted are stupid. Common sense has gone out the window and soy boys needing to feel powerful are lawyering our beautiful game to death.

I was saying this last night, if that is now a handball under the new rules (as well as a couple of others) then I have absolutely no understanding of it and I really hope we get a really detailed and clear explanation of it at the preseason refs meetings.

As things stand I don't know how it works and I would have no chance of being able to adequately explain to any players why one was given/not given.

@Lloydy136

The officials can't agree. Based on Delovski, UEFA say handball, AFC say no. As it has been referred to FIFA, I guess this one will be seen in referee foul identification videos. How nice of Beath and Ams to give them footage for a worldwide audience.

"It's a flip of a coin, really," Delovski said. "We're just waiting on the technical decision from FIFA on it. UEFA are saying it's handball, some people in AFC are saying it's not handball. We have a split decision on it. It's one of those ones, it can go either way."

Can anyone decipher what MB says to DG & MJ as they re-enter the fray?

@Taurus 

From Rugari's article

"The boss goes, 'Get back into position because if our goalkeeper saves it and you're not there and you could have been, I'll lose it at you'."

Isn't the VAR for clear and obvious errors? If it takes Beath 5 minutes of looking at video, differing angles and speed, then it's not clear and obvious. 

I’ve always been of the opinion that any VAR review by the on field referee should have:

- a time limit 

- no slow motion or zooming in 

- be of a similar angle to where sir was standing during the play

You scrutinise anything for long enough and in intensive depth and of course you’ll start to alter your view of it. That’s not how referring works and the game is not played at a snails pace.

Also, why should one call receive a viewing party over the several dozen others that occur throughout a game?

The other thing I’d be doing is scrapping all the technicalities around what can and can’t be reviewed because it happened this way or that way or happened here and there and when. That’s the thing that really shits me because it’s makes the whole thing redundant if it’s selective in its use...

VAR aside we still allowed Adelaide back into the game. I thought we were lucky to be 1-1 at HT. We were the better side 2nd half but as in previous games we get the lead then capitulate late in games. I still remember the Roar game where we were up 2-0 and gave away the game in extra time. ( Thanks Vedran ) Worrying habit for our team.

 For me........Lopar is the difference between us being where we are and not sitting on the bottom of the table. One of our best ever signings.

Wanderers will look to continue win streak

Haha a 1 game streak. I think you need at least 3 in a row to be defined as a winning streak don't you?

We lack leadership

I was wondering the other day if the captaincy is hampering Duke's on field performance.  It is almost like he is trying too hard because he wants to show leadership and score goals as well.

With my school teacher hat on again :lol:....there should be far less tolerance of dissent, imho.

At all levels of the game.

General levels of respect /courtesy throughout society are in sad decline. Kids towards parents, kids towards teachers, players towards officials etc.

 

Do I recall you once saying that you teach a lot of Chinese kids?  If so, I can see from some recent remarks in this thread why the PRC trusts you with the education of their future generation of leaders... :P

Except, I would hope that that Nats still support corporal punishment. We don't need wishy washy sensitive new aged inner city Bolshi ideology in the regions thank you.

Military service would fix it

Not in today's military.  It has become another instrument for "progressive" social engineering regardless of consequences for battlefield effectiveness.

Did anyone else not get the Fox Sports "Muller-ed  Them" pun in the text below the post match interview?  I am a bit slow to catch on sometimes, so may just be me.

......it would also save a few minutes 😊

This match kinda felt like watching an NFL game with all the stop-starts for drinks, VAR decisions etc.  At least they didn't change the full set of players after every 4 plays.

Hahaha...

Since the football talk re this game has petered out, it's probably OK to give a roundabout response here...very off topic, I know.

Yes, I currently have only a Yr 11 and a Yr 12 EALD (formerly ESL English) class, with mostly Chinese International students.

And then I do other EALD academic and welfare support

Both classes (and the others I support) are academically a totally mixed bag. From SUUUPER smart, to kids who have academic issues in their own language in their home country, and who could not continue their education back home beyond Yr 9.

So their parents send them here to get into Uni (Lol)

However,  they mostly NEVER present overt behaviour issues, or the casual disrespect you can see from some Aussie kids.

They can be passively resistant to working (mainly because it's beyond them).

But they are generally  polite and respectful.

My personal teaching style is not highly authoritarian at all. But I do see Aussie kids who show incedible disrespect...which is where this conversation started lol.

The idea that it's OK to show disrespect towards adults and towards authority in general can be reinforced on the sporting field these days, by pretty  unsavory displays  - imo.
