Crystal Palace result should not stand, say Welsh club, Cardiff City.

"The document, sent by club lawyers to the Premier League, alleges Palace boss Tony Pulis knew sporting director Iain Moody was trying to obtain their starting line-up before the game."

"The club say they have proof Moody succeeded. Pulis declined to comment when contacted by the BBC, although Palace previously denied the claims."


What do you guys make of this? Do you think Palace should be docked 3 points if they're found guilty? Or a more severe punishment be handed out? Either way Cardiff look like they're going down.
+1
So what if he obtained the starting XI that doesn't ensure him a win whatsoever. It would be stupid to dock 3 points of Palace but maybe a fine or something.
+1
If you know a starting 11( possibly formation) of a team and you know the strengths and weakness of the players, then you can predict how they are gone play, which means you can use a tactic to counter it. It doesn't give a lot of advantage, but it gives a little bit of an advantage, which is unfair.
Since the FA introduced goal line technology, has there been any required use for it? I can't remember a time when there was such a close call, or the refs got it initially wrong, where the technology had to come into play.
The reason is because the referee has a watch on his arm that beeps when a ball crosses either goal line, the reason you haven't seen any mistakes is because there can't be any. At least on a human level.
+2
Well what I really mean is, have there been any really close calls this season? I haven't seen much in the way of something like this:

I think that unless you are watching the match in which it happens, you won't notice it. In previous years, the incident would make the post match analysis and papers, and so it would spread to a wider audience. Now there is no incident for everyone to debate after the match. I remember watching a match recently in which there was a close call and very quickly it was determined a no goal. Replays showed the decision was correct, and there was no mention of it after.

I have one question though, this may seem stupid. How on earth does the technology know if it's a ball that has crossed the line? What if the keeper scrambles to get the ball, his head goes over while he's grabbing it, and GOAL! pops up on the referees watch? How does it work...?
+1
i'm surprise soo many people didn't notice that the technology has been use so many time this season.even in the 1st week,the chelsea match(against i don't remember) the technology is required(hope a chelsea fan can confirm this)

but this is so far the closest call though

you're welcome. :P

Ah, this was what I was looking for. Thanks Lutheaven.

I also recall a game Swans had where there was a close call but can't remember who they were playing.
I recall it being used in our opener against Villa. Villa had a shot off the post about 10 minutes in and it rolled across the line and back into play. Imminently, the special goal line replay came up and showed that it was no goal. I was really excited about that moment, it was a fresh new season with new technology :)

90 minutes later I wanted to cry but that's another story.
+1
I assume this gonna be in the world cup also because I remember Lampard's goal in the last world cup causing a lot of media reaction.
+1
Yes goal line tech is in Brazil.

Similar method but different company. FA uses Hawkeye ltd. and FIFA will use GoalControl
+1
Closest use of it was for Holtby's shot against a team a few weeks ago. From all angles it looked like it was over the line but using the technology, a tiny bit of the ball was hanging over the edge of the line so the goal didn't count.
Good I would hate to see a world cup winning goal not awarded.
Well, two horses to the finish line. Well done for both clubs.
No one predicted on the reds being one of them.
They deserve it! They played like true champions.
Good Luck in the UCL next season.

Dont count out city. Its epl anything can happen.

Who knows what is written in the script;-)

but a little change in the script this time braaaather. we let arsenal finish the 4th spot this time;-)
Just realized that if Arsenal won the fa cup and secured top 4 place along with Chelsea winning ucl and Liverpool winning the league(not something i want jus making a point) then all of the top 4 would have ended the season with a trophy. I wonder wen last that happened.

winning the CL is a hard task

found this on facebook:

"Gareth Bale ran outside the pitch, went to the dressing room, had a snack, ran back in, and still scored. What a player."

Guys some one embed the gif of bales goal!
+15
We all were expecting him to crumble under the pressure of his price tag, he's done just the opposite and played his natural game at Real Madrid. And he has just won them a cup! #RESPECT
+6
Truly happy for the guy, #Baleworldclass
Don't forget he called his mum to say he was about to score.
If you wanna spend 100m quid , thats exactly how you do it!

No cos I'd be demanding a pay rise :)
+1
The 11th club is arsenal, we basically pay the same as chelsea.
sterling and ox both deserve to start for england. thank goodness england has these young players, the rest of their am/wingers is no good
+2
england should really be a dominating force at the u-21 level, all these guys should grow up playing together instead of riding the bench at the senior level
That's what breaks them down. No chemistry whatsoever. They get one call up from the senior squad and its all done for them in the U21, they are officially too good for that. You look at Spain and the football they play. That success comes from their team chemistry to the point they have their own style of football. Likes of Morata, Carvajal, Jese and Isco still play for Spain U21 because they know how important it is to their success in the senior level. Difference between a smart footballers and idiots who get over their head.

This is a question to those who are good at math. What is the minimum number of games a team must draw and win in order to secure the title? That is, we're assuming everyone can beat, lose or draw anyone else.
there's probably better mathematicians out there, but if everyone drew every game, they'd have 38 points. so you need to win one, and draw 36.
thanks mate.

You could also go unbeaten and be relegated, or go unbeaten and finish 2nd. As unlikely as it would be, I would love to see that XD
And the plot thickens! Liverpool vs Chelsea - (potential) TITLE DECIDER!

last time we had the title decider match in epl was way back in 2011-12 season. anyone remember that? oh yeah Manchester derby.

We are very lucky to have TITLE DECIDER this season too:-)
-manchester united-
-manchester city
-chelsea
-liverpool
-arsenal

now every season,we'll see that one of these teams not finishing in the top4 and failed to qualify for UCL the season after.its liverpool before.and us manunited now.could be any team next year.

so,the question now is:
do you guys think we'll see a manager(among these teams) getting sack every season??
+1
don't include Arsenal there; 4th place is theirs.
+20
Spurs as well tbh, they just had 2 terrible managers this season. A decent manager would have them pushing for the top 3, they certainly have the players for it.
+1
@LastGraspWinner what do u mean by tottenham had 2 terrible managers?? before AVB was sacked spurs were 2 or 3 points of the top 4 they simply shot themselves in the foot by sacking him.
I think you have to include Everton in that list now. 3 of the current top 7 won't make it.
@Napada
There was a reason why he was sacked, he simply wasn't good enough, as he showed at Chelsea. The player he alienated at Spurs has saved them so many times this season. If they do get Van Gaal, they'll definitely be a real force to be reckoned with.
Tottenham sold Gareth Bale and bought so many players. The team chemistry is basically non-existent after that. He is actually doing well to be up there.
+1
@LastGraspWinner being 2 or 3 points off the top 4 is not good enough? who in their right mind sacks a world class manager for a no name manager?

but i think his sacking had more to do with him not wanting to start Adebayor cos he even excluded Adebayor from the team photo but who knows what went around in their camp, cos he wasn't sacked right after that game he lost 5 - 0 in which Paulinho got sent off right at the start of the game... they did have a meeting with him and they said it was a mutual consent but then in the post conference after the last game AVB said he wasn't gonna quit, so i think they made him quit on a mutual consent so that they don't have to pay him the rest of his contract.
i didn't add tottenham and everton because they didn't have the pressure to finish in top 4.manutd,liverpool,arsenal have the history of always finish in top 4 while chelsea and mancity have spend too much not to finish in top 4.
