    I was working last night and haven't seen any of the game so no idea if Isak's second was offside or not. However, there have been loads of VAR decisions for lots of teams (including some of the big six) where goals have been disallowed for players being a tiny fraction off.

    In terms of added time, there seem to be a lot of people on here (not all) under the impression that once the 5 minutes board goes up that the ref should blow for full time as soon as 5 extra minutes have been played. The 5 minutes was an absolute minimum. If they think there are 5 minutes and 45 seconds to add then they will show 5 minutes and not 6. If anyone goes down in those 5 minutes then that time is also meant to be added on. If there are any subs (not sure if there were) then that will also see 30 secs to a minute added per sub.

    I think we need to be careful about developing a persecution complex and accept that some VAR decisions will go for us - Trips red card overturned, Almiron's goal against Man City, etc and some will go against us like the non pens v Man City and Wolves and Isak's goal last night.

    The top teams get good enough to take the mistakes out of the equation and we are at the start of a journey, probably ahead of schedule, to become one of those top teams.

    Sorry, I meant the general supporters association, about the plethora of dodgy decisions mainly given to the bigger clubs.

    As I said I was more furious about the Isak non-offside.

    I think that's the key thing. With a cool head, it's clear that these things happen across the game. But when you are in the moment, it feels too raw. Escpecially when i seems so predictable when we play the 'big teams'.

    But yeah, we need to avoid assuming there is a conspiracy and the team needs to focus on playing to the whistle.

    Isak was offside, but the way he sat those two defenders down and popped it in :emoticon-0152-heart

    The top teams will always seem to get the rub of the green with time added on because the opposition are far more likely to be happy to be taking something from a game against them and so using time management tactics against them as the clock runs down.

    Yeah, he looks classy and very composed. I liked the look of his all-round game.
    Very sharp, intelligent movement, decent touch, won more aerial duels than I expected (after seeing reports that he is a bit lightweight) and great composure for both 'goals'. And that's away to Liverpool with VVD in defence.

    He will hopefully become a crowd favourite fairly quickly.

    I think Miggy will be binned off once Wilson is fit again.
    That front 3 will be immense.

    Yeah but there may be some firm, solid ****e available that would be better than our morning after a vindaloo, 15 pints and a dodgy kebab on way home kind of ****e that we are talking about.

    Miggy will still be a decent back up, I'd certainly keep him for now.
