Wolves are well jammy at the moment. How many late goals do they get...? Jealous, as we just seem to concede them.

That is some of the most corrupt refereeing I've seen in months. 

 

Just literally waits for Wolves to score. There's absolutely no need to be playing more than the allotted time and then Boly just goes and climbs over the keeper. 

 

There was, the game stopped pretty much on 90 and resumed on 91. These time-wasting substitutions are always risky because they add on at least 30 seconds.

There was a bunch of time wasted bringing Manquillo on for Perez then a retaken goal kick on 90. No issue with the time. 

 

Didn't look like a foul on Dubravka either.

A game that deserved a draw really, with no really good chances other than GK errors.

 

Absolute Patricio shit show kicking it out of play then palming it in his own net, followed by Dubravka trying to catch one on his line.

 

We needed to score in the first half when we were on top, and as soon as they went in front I feared the worst. Our 2nd half performance was poor. 

 

Opportunity missed to go back 4 clear of Watford.

We won the game at St James Park with an injury time winner too. 

 

I did sneakily think it would be amusing to score in injury time against them again.

ExG 2.41 to 0.43

 

22 shots, 8 on target. 9 and 3 for them.

 

And people will no doubt say we got lucky! 

Would ignore ExG, we were expected 2 or 3 in comparisons to Spurs 1 yesterday. Very few if anyone is saying they were lucky.

Maybe not the end result, but you can definitely say you were unlucky not to score given the chances you had. Barnes had two, Vardy had a half-volley and missed a pen. Etc.

Agree with you there. 

 

On the goal, haven't seen it in game, but the sky presenters and pundits don't half chat some sh1t to cause controversy.

Read those in charge of the laws are going to stop subs after 90 minutes.

 

Its always been an allocated amount of time - shame players and managers don't seem to realise when it goes against them!

 

Newcastle fans must hate seeing us guys battle for 7th whilst they limp along near the bottom although they have picked up a few decent results but could have won tonight and against us.

Many many times they haven't bothered to add the time on though, good on him.

Fair goal, really annoying how people in the game can't grasp "minimum"

The camera even captured the ref saying "time will start after the sub"

Agree about the time not a issue for me butI thought the goal being given was harsh yes the keeper should have punched it but it didn’t help that the Wolves player puts his arm and hand in the keepers face

Sky presenter's desperation for it to be a foul on the GK is hilarious. Even Kluivert said no FFS. 

 

All fine... nothing to see here!

 

:whistle:

The bottom clubs then were spending a fraction of what the big clubs were spending then and it's not far off that now. 

Wages probably similar as well.

 

Correct!  Here are the average first team (25-man squad) guaranteed player salaries 2018-19.

I suppose all that TV money gives smaller clubs some power to recruit, or keep, some players bigger clubs would otherwise stash.  But it doesn’t help them compete for elite, developed players.

Take Riyad Mahrez (hardly the highest paid Man City player).  If we wanted him back, we would have to clear out Ndidi, Pereira and Maddison to free his £200K/week.  If Cardiff signed him, they literally could not pay an average Championship wage to the rest of their squad.
