We were very poor 2nd half. Also none of our substitutions recently have done anything to improve the team on the pitch, in fact just the opposite.
WFT was the opening goal all about? Nobody on the near post, one minute Macca is 3 feet off the goal line with 2 attackers nearer the goal than him,
next moment he's 2 feet behind the line. If he's going to go on walkabout he has to get his defence right first. Complete and utter brainphart by Danny as well.
The ref was utter dogturd as well. So many fouls unpunished and how Cork got away without a booking is shocking.
Getting worried by Ralphs substitutions, none recently have enhanced the team ... if anything the reverse.
But my main gripe is the Handball/Var/Refs not making decisions and hoping VAR will cover. Why oh why do the powers that be think it is ok to review and cancel perfectly good goals for the slightest of accidental touches of the ball against an attacking forward's arm or hand, that nobody has even appealed for, and only spotted after 3 minutes of VAR reviewing, yet when a defenders arm is involved and spectators on the phucking moon are screaming handball, is it not deemed worthy of a penalty?????
I've said it a million times over the last few years .... most tackles that are awarded penalties aren't actually INTENTIONAL fouls, just as today's and others aginst us this season, may not have been INTENTIONAL, but an UNFAIR ADVANTAGE was gained. That should be the crux of the matter, none of this was his hand/arm in anatural positon etc.
Feeling really gutted, but not surprised. Just the same as opening day, the worst possible weather coditions to play against Burnley, but hats off to them they know how to defend, I guess they have plenty of practice!!
Barely any of our crosses beat the first line of defenders. Disappointed with Moussa today, after Boufal showed how to scare them.
