The referee had no grounds to stop play. He can only stop it if the ball hits him, not if he gets in the way of a player.
 

 

I'm sure that rule will be updated after that.  He obviously should have stopped play, or at least chased and brought down de Bruyne.

With regards to the camera angles Hawkeye have developed the technology to determine player positions from any camera angle. An interesting thread on the whole thing. Instill think VAR could work  but they have to completely change the way it is applied. I thought after Russia 2018 it worked pretty well I dont remember this many controversies then.

Course he can. There's some leeway allowing refs to make their own interpretation if something isn't specifically mentioned in the laws. It should be judged by whether it's "in the spirit of the game".

 

Edit: I'm assuming it doesn't say anywhere, "if you get in the way and the ball comes close to hitting you but doesn't, then play on".

Yeah I don't think there would have been any complaints from the opposition or the ref's assessor if he stopped play there, he obviously should have.  That rule will be updated to reflect that.

The referee can technically stop the game whenever he wants, but getting in the way of players happens all the time and you never see the referee stopping the game for it, just as you never did previously when the ball hit them.

On your second point, the laws of the game aren't really there to tell you what you can do, they're mostly telling you what you can't do. It doesn't say "if a player stands still 43 yards from goal then play on" either.

So Booby Marley was sacked for making a joke about the disabled in a private text to one of his so called mates :

I genuinely think an employer or whoever should be asking the context of a text like this and if it was within a provate conversation, should have no more to do with it. Disgusting that private one to one conversations can be used to beat people with to me. If a crime has been committed then take the message to the Police. Other than that, GTF with this.

Yeah I agree, but then again because of his position his employers had to do something about it. Who ever rated him out is the lowest of the low anyway but another sad example of the time’s we find ourselves in.

Absolutely buzzing for more VAR controversy today
Not even 15 minutes. Arguably the worst one yet.

I've been under the impression (and have told people while Burnley are on) that Jack Cork was the first winner of 'Football Icon'. 

He wasn't.

Newcastle concede two goals from playing out from the back. Unreal from Maddison though.

Right, so if you're an EPL manager, and you've had two players go off injured in the first half is it really sensible to make another sub at halftime?
I guess it does if you're Steve Bruce. I mean, the chances of someone else going down injured 1 minute after the second half starts is just astronomical, aren't they?
