Just heard the the goal line tech was working but that it's view of the ball was blocked. Odd as there was no one swinging on the crossbar at the time. I suppose a side on view may have been interfered with.

I agree the match officials should have done more.

What more ?

Not sure where to put this. I always find these signs a laugh. But have a new favourite. The Dingles are in town.

*sigh* Yes, all lives matter. That is what the BLM movement is about. No one has said that white lives don't matter. When the police created the blue lives matter, did you or other people complai

Think one of the officials should have stepped in on the "goal". The keeper was leaning on the side netting with the ball so it wasn't even close.

Lazy officiating, not sufficient to sit back and rely on pointing to the goal line watch there imo.

Should have allowed it and put it back in the hands of VAR to disallow it if deemed appropriate.

I see Mike Summerbee (aged 77) is deemed essential as Club Ambassador at Manchester City and therefore allowed to go and watch them at the Etihad tonight.

Ever get the feeling they're taking the mick? If anyone shouldn't be there it is blokes in their late 70s in non essential positions.

Really don’t see how you can find it that annoying?! Nothing like the God awful vuvuzela. I actually think it’s pretty decent given what they’ve got to work with.

Did they get it right, or did they get it wrong?

I'm not saying he shouldn't referee again or anything but it was so obvious someone should have picked it up.

“Black Lives Matter” on the shirts,and of course they do. But remember when the poppy wasn’t allowed on England shirts, and some PL and EFL players chose not to wear a poppy on their club shirts. The poppy stands for the memory of lost servicemen and women of all colours and creeds. Just a thought.

That’s because FIFA made that call and not the Premier League.

Hawk Eye has apologised and said ball was over line but they cocked up.

 

City game is like a morgue.

I just thought someone had forgotten to turn it on tbh...

Not regarding PL and EFL they didn’t. It was down to individual players.

I know, but I didn’t highlight that bit, so I wasn’t talking about that bit specifically. 

The only player that refused to wear a poppy, well, let’s be honest, we know who that is. 
But, the last time that was discussed, it went well off topic, so we should probably draw a line under that....

Didn’t realise that. I’ve been watching with the crowd noise on and, to be fair, it’s quite good. One shot went just past the post and the ‘ooohs’ were spot on. They even had chants of ‘United, United’ when Sheff got a corner. I’m also messing around on my iPad, looking up now and again and it has the feel (with the sound) of a normal game. 
 

I’ve just switched channels to the non crowd version and it feels like a training match. Credit where it’s due in my opinion.

The non crowd version is very strange and weird. So I will hands up my hands to @roversfan99 who was right and myself wrong. 

I agree the crowd noise has been very good. It does like feel like a normal game.

It's just good to have football back on.

watched Bremen v Bayern last night with crowd noise. Really good and felt normal. Watching City now with no crowd noise. VERY weird. Not enjoyable.

I think it's mainly for the 'canned laughter generation' that need to be told when to laugh and told when to cheer.etc.

Let's hope that common sense prevails and that after tonight with all teams level on games that the season is ended on PPG. This isn't real football, it is a soulless exercise being done purely for TV money.
