Watches a screen for two minutes, sees that vidal kicks the ball wide of the goal and that the two players then make contact. What’s the fucking point of these refs?

Such a strange decision, ball was going well wide and well away from him

 

I thought it was a penalty like, the defender is so so late. It's just a really thick challenge.

Perhaps but those rarely get given as penalties, when the ball has gone

 

Only one that comes to mind is Lacazette against Spurs and in that instance the ball was still in play so understood why that was given

Commentary aside, I find the bare-bones coverage refreshing. Feed-coverage from the home broadcaster, no studio, analysis. Match, match stats over the live feed images (pre pandemic) with camera panning sections of the stadium in the background - reminds me of how I took in Eurosport during some tournaments in the 90s and how superfluous punditry seems. Works without it at a live match and it makes taking in televised matches feel like a more lived in experience. Especially since BBC/ITV don't go into any Andy Gray style depth anyway. Fills the gap to the next half-hour regularly scheduled programming and is a bit of leech industry to me.

 

On the other hand Eilidh Barbour.
