TBF FFP was pretty much implemented to ensure continued dominance of the top teams, something needs to be done to prevent spending beyond a clubs means but FFP was rigged.

Leicester and Chelsea also doing their best to let Man Utd take third.

Outside of Liverpool and City, the premier league is pretty poor.

But none of it as poor as Arsenal's defence. Seriously I can't believe these grown men still can't concentrate for 90 minutes and defend the basics. It's amateurish.

It really should be if you can't tell it's offside within 5 seconds of replaying it, just give it.

That is still subjective so whoever looked at it may well have thought it was offside to begin with. However knowing they were not time limited they might have decided to take their time.

A journalist on the Sunday Supplement suggested having three refs independently look at an incident and the system takes the majority decision when they press a button. Happy for that to be time limited and it should take care of the clear and obvious aspect.

I think the VAR protocols in the Premier League is what is screwing it up for the most part. The "Clear & Obvious" rule and how it is being implemented especially towards fouls. How they are instructed to use it is a big reason for a lot of the failed VAR calls in my opinion. In a lot of those cases they could have the on field ref look at it on the sideline and let him make the decision, but they definitely have to redefine the clear and obvious rule for fouls.

The offside rule is being implemented to the letter at the moment, but at least that one is changing for the next season, so there will be more room for allowing these millimeter decisions. I believe the handball one will also change, so under the new rules, the Penalty that was given against Bailly a few games ago, would not stand if a ball touches the top of the shoulder.

It seems that the German league has a good handle on VAR in how they implement it from what I have seen so far. They have not had much debatable decisions on VAR in the matches i watched.

How do you rate your chances of staying up? Reckon they'll splash the cash or is it there to spend?

There's talk of Middle Eastern investors buying in if they go up and they would invest.

Some key players are on loan like Ben White (rated at 40m by Brighton), Jack Harrison (who they probably could buy) and Meslier.

Some players (Forshaw, Douglas, Berardi) are going to be completely shown up in the PL and toilers like Klich and Dallas while standout Championship players (and in Dallas' case versatility) won't be able to carry them as they have at times this year.

They do have Kalvin Phillips who is brilliant though.

They need a goal scorer.

I am not sure exactly what the VAR protocols are in Germany, but the ref on the pitch do use the monitor a lot more, it seems like when the decision is not clear, then the ref on the pitch is always told to check the monitor and make a decision.

I recall reading an article once that basically said that once those decisions were referred back to the pitch ref, players started accepting decisions more readily. So i guess that when VAR cannot see an obvious mistake, they refer it to the monitor for the ref to make the final decision.

Over the last few weeks i watched a lot of German matches and saw the refs going over to monitors in at least 50% of the VAR referrals in matches i watched. Whereas I can only recall one case in England where the ref was referred to the pitchside monitor.

So that might be the biggest difference, that the game ref still get to make the final decision on most of the tight decisions.

Also i remember one instance where the ref missed a penalty and VAR picked it up, pointed it out to the ref and he went to the monitor and then gave the penalty.

el loco hasn't spent much so far, preferring to improve the players he's got. there's money available apparently, and should be more now they're definitely promoted. he'll no doubt spend some, if only to keep those on loan. a striker is a must as there's something wrong with augustin, and bamford, bless him, needs too many chances.

but looking at how sufc are doing, i reckon we'll survive the first season, and then start to build.

tbf, probably best all round that leeds weren't playing (or rather, there weren't massed fans full of drink) the day they were promoted.

Time to see if Ole has some balls. De Gea would be on the next flight out is Ferguson was still running the show.

They have a premiership keeper on the books in Henderson that Chelsea want to buy to replace their own clown show. Keep him and promote him to number one while losing the massive salary from De Gea. It's win win. He is beyond a joke at this stage.
