It’s just started to rain here, along with thunder and some lightning.

 

Hopefully it’ll clear the air as it’s been really muggy all morning.

 

We need some rain here. Not seen any for about 8 hours.

 

By the way, keep me posted on signings please, mon ami, as I have been red carded from that particular thread.

There’s two ways I could take that.

 

Neither are appealing.

Nah, use your imagination.

The decision making puts a lot of the men to shame. 

 

Good intelligence shown by a lot of these players.

No VAR in the lead up to England's second goal. Looked like a handball.

Scotland are keeping the ball for even less time than Hearts this season. 

 

Still quite a bit behind the English in class but at least the effort is there. That can't always be said about the mens team.

Well, if that’s the new penalty claims then we are goosed, Should have stuck with hand plays ball or ball plays hand decisions

Players will just blast the ball at opponents now rather than try to cross to someone.

If the ball is going to hit you plum in the face it is an automatic response to shield your face with your hands,that is not a penalty. Leave the rules as they stand.

They'll get them, we won't and we'll be paying a fortune for the privilege. 

 

Handball, particularly in the penalty area, has to be nailed down definitively. No more dubiety, interpretation or an opinion of a referee which is loaded with bias and/or fear of having his windows tanned. 

 

Handball in the box=penalty.

 

It could lead to lots of awards but it would increase goals in games and perhaps lead to more attacking football. Surely a big incentive to get forward and get the ball in the box. 

 

Probably not, in all honesty, the answer but I'd rather that than the decision still being in the hands of some bias/terrified punter from Lanarkshire.

I'd also go with anything within a certain Range, say 5 yards is never a penalty.

Aye. That could retain a bit of balance and still allow for genuine accidents whilst defending and blocking at close quarters. However, we'd still have the Lanarkshire ref deciding what is, and isn't, 5 yards. 

 

It's a puzzler, bud.

Unlucky to lose that in the end. Let's have the attitude of we have nothing to fear against Japan or Argentina. Come on the lassies. By the way how good was Alexander in goals for Scotland today?

We'll never know how that game would have panned out the longer it was 0-0.

 

England were jittery until that ludicrous penalty they got

Interesting that the officials for Canada v Cameroon comprises a north Korean ref and assistant with the other assistant being south Korean. 

Reserve assistant also south Korean.

Can't tell if Japan aren't what they've been cracked up to be or if Argentina have improved

I hope Scotland don't suffer a mental backlash as a result of their first game being the high prestige game.  They would have expanded tremendous physical and emotional energy in that contest.

 

Hopefully they have emerged more encouraged than disappointed and will be ready mentally for the next contest.

 

As we Hearts supporters know only too well, you get exactly the same number of points for beating Livingston as you do for beating Celtic.  That doesn't always seem to translate to the players.

 

Fingers crossed for a historic WC first win later in the week.

The backlash to it all was in the first half. 

 

More likely to be determined for next game after disappointment yesterday.
