I must have missed that. Depends what kind of hand ball it was. I'm sure I heard they were gonna relax the handball rules this weekend though I don't know if that was the entire football league.

Bola had the ball down the left and he whipped a cross in. Britt nearly got on the end of it. But before that it deflected off the defender in between him and Bola and he used his arm.  It was down by his side but he moved towards the ball I’m sure of it.

I hope Bola can get a run in the team and gain some confidence. I really think he could ‘do a Dijksteel’ and become a favourite if he does. From what I remember watching him last season he was good on the ball and could go past a player, put some decent crosses in aswell. He just needs to impose himself more on games.

From what I remember of him last season, he was dreadful in the air, generally not an intelligent defensive player and not that good going forward either. Still, the lad is really young, I'd rather give him a chance when 'first-choice' left-back is not playing well at all. I'd generally prefer the one playing there to be Coulson but I'd rather Bola than Johnson right now for sure.

This might be Fry's best game of 2020 he's dealt with everything looks much sharper after he had another disrupted pre season.

Barnsley will go down if they keep playing out from the back like this under their new manager.

We've looked extremely comfortable at the back - im a little wary of getting carried away though because i think barnsleys confidence looks absolutely shot. They look like a team that haven't scored all season.

Our defence will have bigger tests than this, for sure. Quite like Bournemouth, our width is really not being tested.

Ouch, that should have been 2-1.

Yeeeeeeah, Coulson for 4 minutes, class! Come on Hayden, hat-trick needed to get your start in the next game, mate.

    • No idea on team today due to possibility of Tav being injured. A free hit really for us. My best guess.             Bettinneli Dijksteel                    Bola          Hall Fry McNair          Howson Saville Kebano.    Bolasie.    NML
    • Funny you should say that, the latest rumours in the papers are that FIFA are wanting to introduce "robot linesman" for the World Cup next year. Not sure how well it would actually function, but linesman are being made gradually obsolete.
    • The sooner VAR is scrapped the better as far as I’m concerned, it’s absolutely ruining the flow of games, players score but have to wait until they are told the goal was allowed and the decisions are all just as contentious as those that used to be given, pre VAR. I hate the new fad for linesmen not flagging offsides, someone is going to get seriously injured playing on, when the flag should have been raised, there is barely any point having referee’s assistants any more.   I can understand the idea of VAR for clear and obvious errors, but that’s not how it’s being used, the remote ref is pretty much doing the on pitch officials jobs for them and don’t get me started on those marginal off side calls. It’s obvious to any one who has played football that the momentum of the forward will cause them to lean towards the goal, whilst conversely the defender will be leaning forwards the other way. Offside should be judged on where players feet are and nothing else and that can be done by the linesman without the need for VAR.
