    I'm done with football for a bit, VAR is killing it. There is more going on around us that requires my attention. Bye.

    Anyone think we should be recalling any of our loaned out players ?

    Did a bit of a predictor earlier and had us finishing on 46 points, so still quite a few winnable games to go. Agree with you though, this could easily be 10 straight losses, let’s just hope the club don’t do anything rash, this forum seems pretty staunchly behind Ralph, but some of the great pleb swathe are turning (apparently we lost because Ralph selected Redmond and McCarthy?).

    As long as we are in the cup our season is still alive, I think Europe is now firmly out of reach for the PL and relegation is unlikely so maybe we can play with the pressure off for the rest of the PL season and focus on setup for the next.

    You can be such a prick. I can’t work out if you just enjoying wumming us all or are just totally oblivious to it. Gotta be former.

    I thought I'd seen enough disappointment of Saints in the winter period over these last few years, still that experience may provide the hope we all need. Personally bracing for a pointless period of yet 2/3 weeks more, then the sunny uplands come into view!

    No referees = no football at the end of the day. So they're part of the game.

    17th and FA Cup winners would be acceptable.

    He didn’t see it! Is he ****ing blind, stupid or on the take? Tbh, I hope it’s the later.

    Reminds me of the year Lawrie with Alan Ball teamed up and Lawrie was asked by some idiotic BBC pundit, 'Well Lawrie coming back to your old club, where you had great success etc, what's your target for success this season?'
    '17th' came the reply in that unmistakeable NE accent, nothing more came! We were in our usual late 90's position in the PL.

    They’re the sort of team we beat anyhow. Again, we’re not playing *badly*. We’re just **** out of luck. KWP out is a big blow too.

    Oh I'm not writing it off by any means. Christ, any prediction in a match involving Leeds is fruitless.

    I'm just saying that it's loseable. And not in the "how the **** have we lost to them" type of way.

    To be fair, he's about 12 years old. They could do with an adult in goal.

    I think this sums up why most refs are so awful.

    You are not part of the game. You are the arbiter of the game. The difference is so astoundingly profound that I despair of your grasp of logic.

    If I go to dinner with a friend and his new gf and he asks an opinion about her am I part of the relationship. No. Of course not. But apparently all refs would be expecting a threesome.

    I suppose you’d put me in that category? Yep, why can’t I have a view to bin Var because it’s ****ing useless & “expect” (?) competent referees? Even you said he got it wrong with one or both of the pens today. I ****ing give up.

    I’ll give you all of that but if YOU and I think 99.99% on here would say you’re generally a “tad on the refs side”, are saying 3x of the PL refs are ****e/crap/incompetent, jeez what a ****ing marker for our game!
