Today just a year ago I was making the dream of my life come true and I was able to meet you   (Yes... I was the first to enter the stadium)

I was chatting with the guys from Fish’s footy vlog and we all reckon Bruce should try playing with a Trequatrostagioni ( no mushrooms). 

Only works if you have players who can pasta ball to each other

Tuned in to see what the score was in the Tottenham vs Brighton match earlier. Within 20 seconds of turning it on both Son and Kane had dived within the box trying to get penalties. Both were reviewed and dismissed by the VAR correctly as neither were even approaching fouls. Annoying that they have no power to confirm and issue yellow cards for diving/simulation when they're already reviewing the same play. There's no meaningful attempt to stamp that kind of rubbish out of the game and if it resulted in any sort of incidental contact that happened to coincide with when they dramatically fell to the ground the VAR would have been only too eager to give the penalty. It's all reward and no risk for attacking players.

We saw Sala and Belerin (Pogba) both barely touched and dived to win a penalty. Englands captain engineer a penalty. VAR is fucking useless.
