  1. According to various press, man u are going buy every top player in the NEXT transfer window.

    What the articles fail to state is the fact it is subject to the player wanting to go to a struggling club, the players club actually want to sell, and Man city/Liverpool/Chelsea are not interested.


    But the omission oft these 3 relevant facts, gets the clicks, and sells the papers.

  2. op, like your post, but you are underestimated the strength of the squad, we have another defender who was on loan with Celtic, currently recovering, who the tics' were comparing with van dyke last year, and a full back who looks full of potential and already ready for the premier league. 

    There are absolutely no worries with the strength of our squad.

    WE beat Pool saturday ( and we are only 6/1)we will be up and running, if not Top 4 will have to be the aim.

    The ultimate test awaits against Liverpool on Saturday.  If we can get something from that game we really can start believing of top 6.


    You are behind the times, Skybet already quoting have us odds on for the top 6, get a win at Anfield people will start dreaming the impossible, and believing in fairytales.

    I'm pleased that once he scores 1 goal, the next goal he scores will mean he has scored 2 goals. 

    I'm looking forward to when he's scored 2 goals. Any more than that would mean he's scored more than 2 which is a real bonus. 

    really good post, your logic  makes complete sense.

    Its like a city fan got to choose which balls came out. Other than maybe us being at home and city and Liverpool drawing each other it's the best possible outcome for us. the odds of something like that ie the all prem ties and the leauge one ties and us getting the last leauge one side must be in the hundred thousands to one.

    nowhere near, mate

  6. City fans should be rejoicing about the use of var, how many result changing decisions have Arsenal incorrectly been on the right side  of against us, since we came up?

    Liverpool pen that should never been?

    Big sides have always been favoured, this  nearly levels the chances.


  7. not come across anywhere that explains how the actual image is arrived at.

    But i think the're some misconceptions about the lack of accuracy being taken as gospel.

    There are cameras that work at up to 2500 frames per second, whether this high  a rate is used, I don't  know , but the oft quoted 60 fps quoted by posters is surely too low.

    As for the "where do they draw the line" often asked, the  easy answer is, they don't. The software will be drawing the line based on(at a guess) the colour intensity of an individual pixel.

    As to when the ball is kicked, that will be easy for the computer as the ball velocity will be measured, again using a pixel count.


    I am only guessing at this, but even if the techniques are more advanced than I can think of, it will be along similiar lines.


    Maybe an idea b to join a professional camera/video  forum, could get an expert insight.

    Surely to be able to draw a line accurately you would need to be looking precisely across the line which would require thousands of cameras along the touchlines. That camera angle is a random angle creating about a 30 degree angle for the line, but without knowing the precise angle I don't see how they can measure it accurately. 


    It's like someone's just used the line tool in Microsoft Paint and guessed.


    Sometimes MOTD use that virtual world (a bit like Hawkeye in Tennis) where you can see the position of players/ the ball from any position on the pitch. Not sure how accurate it is but surely using that would be more accurate.

    I'm pretty sure they have multiple cameras, all at different angles, they show just one of many.

    Law 11 Offside

    Offside position

    It is not an offence to be in an offside position.

    A player is in an offside position if:
    • any part of the head, body or feet is in the opponents’ half (excluding the halfway line) and
    • any part of the head, body or feet is nearer to the opponents’ goal line than both the ball and the second-last opponent
    • The hands and arms of all players, including the goalkeepers, are not considered.
    A player is not in an offside position if level with the:
    • second-last opponent or
    • last two opponents

    Offside offence

    A player in an offside position at the moment the ball is played or touched* by a team-mate is only penalised on becoming involved in active play by:
    • interfering with play by playing or touching a ball passed or touched by a team-mate or
    • interfering with an opponent by:
    • preventing an opponent from playing or being able to play the ball by clearly obstructing the opponent’s line of vision or
    • challenging an opponent for the ball or
    • clearly attempting to play a ball which is close when this action impacts on an opponent or
    • making an obvious action which clearly impacts on the ability of an opponent to play the ball

    *The first point of contact of the 'play' or 'touch' of the ball should be used

    • gaining an advantage by playing the ball or interfering with an opponent when it has:
    • rebounded or been deflected off the goalpost, crossbar or an opponent
    • been deliberately saved by any opponent
    • A player in an offside position receiving the ball from an opponent who deliberately plays the ball (except from a deliberate save by any opponent) is not considered to have gained an advantage.




    Surely once the goalkeeper saved the shot, all leicester players are deemed onside?

    The rule is unclear, as to what constitutes "active play"
