This makes no sense. Lance is nowhere near the best of all time even with the dope. 

Nor are City. But it makes a point.

Eh, I'd wager that a large number of Arsenal fans would've been cheering on City had the roles been reversed. 

How many United fans were there wanting to lose to Arsenal on Sunday to try and stop City winning the title? It may have been obvious we were going to lose, but I don't know anyone who was actually cheering for it.

United's rivalry with Liverpool and Arsenal is bigger than the rivalry with City. There was not an insignificant amount of United fans hoping for City to beat Liverpool to the title these past few years. Most United, Arsenal and Liverpool fans know that City 115 are the biggest cheaters in the history of English football so their trophies are worthless.

Bin it for everything except the automated offside thingy. I love idea of VAR, but the PGMOL have completely and utterly fucked its implementation. 

I'd rather not have it at all in its current, clear and obvious, format.

United do have a reputation for having a not insignificant number of fans who've never lived in Manchester.

So does any of the clubs with the biggest fanbases, including Arsenal and Liverpool.

IMO, a challenge system should be added to limit VAR, something similar to the NBA, pro tennis, and test cricket.  But if the choice is keep it as it is or abolish it, I say abolish it.

Spurs fans, instead of holding up their hands and saying, yeah we were a fucking embarrassment to the game on Tuesday night, have this to say:

"the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust (THST) have told The Athletic that they would be happy to set up a meeting with Postecoglou to explain the context around the rivalry with Arsenal and why the feelings run so deep. "

The VAR in European competitions is great, imo. Apart from some over-zealous interpretations of the handball law, it seems to work pretty well. Does its job in the background, without anything remotely approaching the level of human incompetence we see in England.
