Question for Ed002! What are your thoughts on the recent allegations made by Mark Halsey in respect of refs being asked to turn a blind eye to contraversial incidents? Do you think there's anything in it and what would this be as bad as the issues with match fixing that happened in Serie A all those years back (although Halsey didn't imply that this was match fixing, obviously) .

FranklyMrShankly

{Ed002's Note - I think he is over-egging it. I am aware of two occasions in Champions League games where there was a pre-briefing to the referees from another "official". I suspect the Halsey situation has something behind it but not quite the issue it is being suggested that it is. But it will be looked at.

Cheers Ed. Storm in a teacup then Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Pelican in a cross-wind.}

Pelicans can't fly in crosswinds due to the drag on their bills lol, certainly wouldn't fly in a straight line 😂.

I am confused. I had the impression he was suggesting they were asked to say they hadn't seen something in order for it to receive the CORRECT post-match punishment? It is the opposite of match fixing -it is correctly punishing violent conduct irrespective of what the on referee interpreted at the time? Albeit a mischievous solution to an artificial problem.

The best was to avoid that would simply be to remove the rule that if a referee sees something it cannot be retrospectively punished. Instead have the "citing committee" function more like rugby. If there is violence / serious cheating it should be dealt with, whatever the referees "on-the-spot" interpretation was?

{Ed002's Note - The point is that the referees should be honest if they have seen something.}

Yes, I agree that referees lying cannot be good for the game!

But it is a very artificial situation whereby you can't take action after a match if the referee had a view/ interpretation of it in a match (which turns out to be incorrect/ sub optimal)? Better to make the rule sensible, rather than asking referees to lie or allowing violent conduct to escape unpunished?

In the case in point, few would doubt Aguero had committed a punishable act? Better a rule that allows punishment irrespective of the referees view / non view / on the spot interpretation?

My understanding that this is as Profg has said and is not about favouring one team or another. Football should definitely have a citation type rule. We have a lot to learn from Rugby in terms of player conduct.


6.) 05 Sep 2016 22:57:16
If a ref saw what happened and thinks it's a foul, he must penalize the incident, controversial or not. If they are being told to ignore them then that is wrong and hurts the integrity of the game and those doing this, should be flushed out of the game entirely, period.

{Ed002's Note - That is not being suggested.}

I think we can presume that China is now not an option for Balotelli.

Ed has said Sampdoria is interested and he is interested as well however, there's an issue that has to be resolved.

Grujic looks a bit of a player.

Lovely goal by Ings, nicely cushioned the ball and great half volley. I think we're going to see great things from him this year.

Good afternoon Eds! Any truth in the rumour that a work permit application has been made for Talisca Anderson? Or is this just more twitter nonsense?

FranklyMrShankly

{Ed002's Note - I have no way of knowing.}


1.) 08 Jul 2016 17:02:04
Ed002 is it true that my missus ate all the Snickers Bars in the cupboards whilst I was at work today?

The dog is blaming her and she is blaming the dog!


2.) 08 Jul 2016 17:10:10
Isnt he a Striker? can't be any truth in it what so ever. I Take it you no nothing of any interest ed?

{Ed002's Note - RTFP.}


3.) 08 Jul 2016 17:37:36
Lfc forever, the ed answered the question in the original post and you asked again. So did you think the answer would change in the space of 10 mins. Its why ed002 gives such short shrift to you in particular but i give it to you u just don't give up.

At the end of the day, it looks like Milner will have to lump it. Can't see us spending on a new left back in January (unless Milner has an absolute shocker) and given Milner's wages I can't see anyone being interested in taking him on, so it's a Mexican stand off.

Kante hadn't played much top flight football though.

I think there is talent out there, look at Burke at forest, at the end of the day, Phil Neal, Alan Hansen, Steve Nicol, Ronnie Whelan all came from lower leagues. All I want is us to sign competent players who can develop and improve our starting 11.

For his own sake he needs to move on and grow up.

Good move for him. Not good enough to break through for us in my honest opinion as his decision making is poor and has serious lapses on concentration at vital moments.

I would rather we played Stewart in centre midfield as he gives us more steel. Thought Milner had a good game and looked competent, Matip was immense, Lucas played well (not going to mention the goal as it was a hospital pass from the keeper), Sturridge led the line well and Mane and Firmino were unplayable. And the new stand looks amazing. Lots of positives but still the same niggle in midfield. Plus Man United got beaten too so good day all round.

All depends on how we set ourselves up in midfield. If we persist with Lallana, Wijnaldum and Henderson it could backfire horribly as they will attempt to do what Burnley did.

Well he's certainly been what you would define as the holding midfielder when played with Lallans and Wijnaldum and frankly that role doesn't suit him given that neither Lallana nor Wijnaldum have the ability to play centre midfield and he's been left brutally exposed. Sorry but getting spanked at Burnley, and looking weak in midfield against Spurs and Arsenal are not effective performances, that's not Hendersons fault, it's poor tactics and insisting on playing players out of their position.

Normally he's played in a more attacking role, but he was in front of the defence.
