    Pk added on time, last kick. Of all time. Ever

    I always thought we should end the game in a neutral area of the FOP there imo an attacker going for a rebounded penalty isn't neutral so I'd be waiting. Edit: Seems dodgy to me to let defender clear it after telling attacker not to attack it.

    Slightly apprehensive!

    I've personally never seen a 4th warm up - is this common to have the 4th warm up?

    VAR - Ajax vs Real Madrid

    Surely the fact it took them so long to decide means it's no longer 'clear and obvious'?

    Young Referee abuse

    Understand the referee is here is young however this is grounds for dismissal in my opinion on the coach - the coach has now brought the integrity of the referee into disrepute or otherwise calling him a cheater.

    Player drug use

    Imagine accusing someone of smoking it and it turns out they haven't had a shower.. unless I physically see someone on the teamline using then they can do what they like I wouldn't go digging (especially not if yourself)

    Allan McGregor V Aberdeen

    This is why the introduction of VAR hopefully for the 21/22 season will be great for Scotland (they've already ruled it out for 20/21 due to the duration of the training)

    Cup Game PKs Positioning

    Foul leading to goal?

    I thought this would have been a foul on Dundee #2 especially if he appealed? Can someone explain why it wasn't a foul? Had the player just given up due to score and didn't appeal? To me it looks like he's being held down/pulled?
