I agree.Is there a better player in the EPL than Kevin De Bruyne? Liverpool will be the deserved champions, but KDB is by far the best player in the league. He should leave City. Would be a shame if he would never win the CL and City will not win it.
Completely agree. Love VAR, hate rules that are against the spirit of the game (by organisations against the spirit of the game).Firstly, yes they are correct decisions by the current handball law, but the two late goals that were disallowed tonight for Tottenham and Man City were just absolutely ridiculous. They surely have to do away with this stupid handball rule for attacking teams. It's a complete and utter farce. First one rolls over Foden's arm as he's laying on the ground about 50yds from the goal at the start of the move and the second one Moura stumbles over under a challenge and falls down and the ball touches his arm as he lands.
That is truly awful........I’m getting pretty sick of them constantly trying to reinvent the simplicity of the game.....what’s next.....glue goal nets, boot cam, coloured goal posts? I’m getting older, but when you start putting ridges in a ball to make it less unstable, it’s another tick in the ”sanitising the game” box.New ball for the EPL (and other top flight leagues across Europe) revealed...
What do you guys think?
Really divided opinion amongst friends and colleagues.
Some say it's going to be a classic due to the fact that it's so simple (with the huge tick), and monochrome.
Others say it looks like it's been left on a hot radiator for a month - and it looks like it's cream-coloured rather than pure white, which is really odd.
I think it looks shrivelled and weird, don't like it at all!
A friend of mine, used to play pro and semipro as GK, told me that after 2006, the mainstream manufacturers balls have gone crazy, with milestone the WC 2010 Jabulani ball, with the gell technology, that tended to give the ball extra spin and most world class goalkeeps also confessed so about its bad effects.That is truly awful........I’m getting pretty sick of them constantly trying to reinvent the simplicity of the game.....what’s next.....glue goal nets, boot cam, coloured goal posts?

Nah, they were bad before the enforced covid shutdown. Their form in the second half of the season has been almost relegation-like.It's a pity because before Covid, they were very good. Is it a coïncidence that this happens again with a Brendan Rodgers team (running out of steam), see also Liverpool when he was there?
