    Well, he could blame the "board" for not giving the Scottish nationality to enough talented players I suppose...

    so, this effort from Conti was actually judged as a yellow card from VAR. explanations may be needed there. and, while we are showing the highlights of the night, you might love this Di Maria beauty of a free kick:

    I still feel that De Gea can widely improve the way he confronts penalties. He haven't stopped one since 2016 (against... Lukaku), and for instance, the one Auba shot today was fairly reachable for him I think. Add that to his error of anticipation on Xhaka's strike, and you have one bad day in David De Gea's life. A day which is almost as rare as a 29th February, though.

    ...hell yeah. Shame I almost forgot that. Yeah, I'm aware of your point. Definitely a weird rule. I do stand that the "unnatural position" part of the rule is the more important, and makes the penalty legitimate there. Otherwise, if you give the priority to the "deliberate attempt", player could willingly prevent scoring chances by doing handball "in natural position", i.e with an arm so close to their body that it wouldn't be considered as "unnatural", if you see what I mean.

    Well, if Kimpembe's arm is not on the road of Dalot's shot, I think it's a shot on target thus a chance of scoring. Plus, Kimpembe is (unwillingly, I know) clearly making his zone of intervention bigger. So, how is that not a deserved penalty?? Then, you are blaming the referee for actually awarding the extra time that was taken by the VAR call. Anyway. I want to point out that both our CBs had a great game, which is a rare thing for Utd fans, especially in CL. Fred was fine too, I think it may be his 1st entire game for us. Hope it actually launch his Utd career. The funnier part of the whole is that Greenwood made his debut just to celebrate with the team, really I think he didn't touch a single ball. Lukaku MOTM of course.

    OGS with a relevant substitution, for once. The little injury comedy was fun. I wish he hadn't started Bailly though. He's partly guilty for this Bernat goal. Dalot would have deserved to start, considering his current form and how poor Young can be as a RW /RM. Fingers are crossed for this 2nd half. Won't be easy if we keep doing the 20% posession thing lol.

    Well, I wasn't actually complaining about him, I highly like him as a player and as a person. I was just pointing out how him and Andreas had a noticeable peak amidst an average /bad season. Pity it will probably not last: Andreas has been all but regular in his recent years at loan, and Lukaku has had long goal-less droughts. For sure, fingers will be crossed for them to do well until we recover some players from injuries, anyway.

    I didn't watch the Utd game, but I just saw Pogba missed a penalty, which is scarce. Lukaku scored twice, which is scarcer, and Pereira scored, which is something above Lloris saving a penalty in terms of scarcety, I assume. So, in the end that's a funny PL day. Still seems weird how Spurs's dive of form happens at the same time Kane is back from injury. Race for top4 is going to be a four-horses race, and I actually wonder how Spurs will do at Dortmund in midweek.

    Well, it was a very Atletico win (not to speak about this Simeone celebration) We'll see how high favourites Juve cope with that, but Colchoneros are right now in a mattress to make their way to the quarter finals. ...have City turned around a 2-1 to a 2-3 with 10 men?

    And now Rashford for Pogba. This duo is gold. Tough on Chelsea to be led 0-2 by half-time. They've provided most of the chances but we've been more clinical so far. If Sarri doesn't turn things around somewhat, I can see him gone (which would be a debatable decision from the Chelsea board but I can see that happening) ETA: sorry for bringing this up again, but Sarri just has to fuck off. Giroud & Hudson-Odoi haven't been used, instead he subbed Barkley, Willian & Zappacosta in. If dude's aim was to annoy the Chelsea fanbase, he couldn't have done better.

    For a moment, I found myself comparing Nelson Semedo and Ashley Young. It was a quick moment. But it hurts. Half time in the 1st leg of this Copa del Rey clasico. Real are superbly playing on the counter, which gave them an early advantage at the Nou Camp. Benzema, Vazquez, Modric, Kroos are class. Vinicus is gonna be a tremendous player but so far he's shown himself very disappointing, if not frustrating, in the last gesture. Quite the same thing can be actually said about Malcolm, in the other side. Also, I seriously doubt that Coutinho's form can drop as deep as that, so I'd rather say he's badly used by Valverde. Bring la Pulga on !

    Arsenal 1-3 Utd. That was a weird game, very disrupted. Quite painful I guess for Arsenal fans, with Sokratis and Koscielny both injured and replaced during the game. Damn, I realize every top6 club currently has troubles with injuries, except the two Manchester ones (albeit KDB was struggling at some point). Our top4 race appears more doable than ever. PS: don't exactly know what happened between Lingard and the Arsenal supporters but I'm not sure who is dumber in the lot.

    I'd rather say that the guy fears more about playing the ball with his feet than he fears injuries and these sorta things. Like, I'm aware the game has evolved, but please. Even when he doesn't pass to De Gea (and it doesn't happen frequently), he manages to set his CB partner in mess by passing him the ball either on his weak foot, or slighty behind him. It's so frustrating to watch him play. But yeah, he can be a real soldier on his day. And sometimes he scores.

    He did provide an assist, but at some point I had the feeling that almost every ball that came on his side of the pitch was lost in a few seconds. Dude missed a lot of passes, albeit it wasn't crucial losses because we often managed to recover quickly the ball by high press (1st half especially). I actually don't blame him, a RB does not simply play at LB. A pity we don't have a back-up for LB, I hope there is nothing ill for Shaw at the moment. As for Jones, I agree that he's not our new Vidic. In his recent games, he hasn't shown himself guilty of big mistakes though. Which doesn't make him a great CB, surely. Damn, our CB situation may be horrific for us to actually hope for a Smalling return. PS: I have to sustain, Sarri is a wank. And I'm gonna state it as long he's unable to update his tactics.

    Such a pity we couldn't grab some GD here. Because of that, we might not keep our current 5th spot, considering Arsenal have a better GD than us. Anyway, this was our worst half under Ole. While we did have a few big chances against Spurs in 2nd half, today it seems we were inviting Brighton to get an equalizer in 2nd half. Fortunately Lindelof & Jones are on a good run of form. Also, it's terrifying how we always play on left hand-side. It was especially a problem today, with right-footed Dalot playing at RB and having a crappy performance. (come on Arsenal)
