Strikes me as kinda daft
Yet I sat through Portugal/Iran
Thinking…this is bordering on farce?

Having me in fits
I’d vote to scrap the VAR tomorrow
If our game carries on as this one did?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 These Portuegeezers and Irainan guys
Should be seriously reprimanded, by them fine up-standing FIFA chaps,
For this Comedy of Errors performed on Twelve Night…
In the guise of a World Cup football match.


Politely put…an interesting match. On a positive note, maybe VAR should have been tried out in a lesser tournament beforehand methinks in hindsight? I thought both teams worthy of Academy Award Nominations for blatant cheating and trying to con a referee, who was clearly out of his depth. But that is no excuse… these players and coaches knew exactly what they were doing – and could get away with – then quite simply went ahead and did it…unhindered.

Go well, be lucky and keep smiling.
