Since the introduction of VAR, teams have been left to lament what might have been if their striker's foot was one size smaller; if the ball had been played half a second sooner. Goals have been allowed and disallowed, sometimes seemingly at random, with referees in booths drawing lines on a screen, often taking minutes to come up with a decision.
The immediate joy of scoring a goal has been replaced by "let's wait for VAR..." It feels like the thrill of football has been removed, so how can we get it back? What is the solution to this offside mess?
Controversial Dispute, debate or contention - “that was a controversial decision.”
Automated/Automatic Automated is the verb; automatic the noun Starting, operating, moving etc independently- “the car wash is automated.”
Determine To choose; to make a decision - “The IOC will determine whether the Olympics will go ahead.”
Fonts? Logos? Brands? That doesn't sound like football. With the J.League introducing a new font for uniform names and numbers, Tommy and Tomo decided to take a look at branding in football.
Euro 2020 is just around the corner and it's set to be another amazing tournament. In the last episode of Football & English for this season, Tomo and Tommy preview Euro 2020, and have some more news about our special 'Euros & English' podcast.
