‘Get stuck in’ … the same managerial advice we were offered as 3rd Tolworth Cubs, back in the day. And at half-time, the same refrain, slightly amended: ‘The trouble is, you’re not getting stuck in enough …’

So true mate.
You’re certainly not alone in your thinking. I get incensed sometimes.
Aside from the endless and stillwith its -here once labelled Fergie Time moments ,we now have VAR with its far off decisions by supposed ‘neutrals’ .
So …the supposed influenced ‘integrity’ of refs and neutrals favouritism ?
You could tuck it away into some corner and call it yet another football conspiracy theory, (like analyzing and searching to find which teams refs follow and VAR assistant refs (if we knew ) but it still occurs too often for me.
It raises the question is there such a thing a a real neutral. Everyone who watches football definitely supports or has a soft spot for some club however tenuous..
BTW When I was 10 and the Munich Air Crash happened. i (and many at my school in Fulham) was a Chesea fan but took United on as my second lcub for a season through that awfdul time. Now FGR are my life and my team in the next village and i drum (when we get back) on the terrace at 72 with the young kids and scoff vegan pies and get bwind Dale’s green vision for the planet …
Go well Attila and stry safe with your good lady….
