But that is not the point of the media. The point of then media is to give the public information, regardless of context.

I wouldn’t be best pleased either, but the blame would lie with the Scottish assistant manager who’d been blasé with revealing the team.

So you don’t think people are interested in what the next England team looks like? The next England team news is news, regardless of when the English FA or whoever cares to release it.

Southgate a class act at media conference in Nizhny. Admits could have worded his comments on training notes leak story better, backs media’s need to do their jobs, & sympathises with those subject to ignorant abuse on social media. Instantly defuses situation, focus back on tmrw

The media has a job to report news. Those who think the media has a responsibility to help England win the World Cup are missing the point of the media.

I think the delay can add to the drama, in a good way. Plus it normally doesn’t take that long to get the VAR decision.

I think it makes for a more satisfying watch overall because you know there is a pretty good chance really bad and unfair decisions won’t dictate the result. Agree that it has potential to take us to uncharted territory, but benefits outweigh negatives.

Was thinking about this too, agreed. An anomaly. A sort of ‘natural justice’ seems to often prevail in these situations and a pen is given, even though it doesn’t quite fit the laws.

Indeed Hugh, but ref is a human being too and thus as liable to make an error as we all are. No way that arm movement is deliberate, player not even looking at the ball. Anyway, good to see VAR hasn’t stifled contentious football decision debate entirely.

That’s what makes it worse! And not sure deliberate stretches as far as to cover accidental 😄 Like I say, for me it was a bad ref call. Still not great for VAR, but the VAR concept not the main culprit here.

Given the proximity of ball and arm and rapidity of the movement of the ball impossible for the Danish defender to know anything about it. Not sure he was even looking at the ball. Laws state it has to be deliberate.

Yep. Bad refereeing call more than a failure of VAR, although not sure it should have been referred to VAR. Doesn’t fall into ‘clear and obvious’, ultimately handball comes down to opinion a lot of the time. But nothing deliberate about that.

Martin O’Neill is spot on, never a penalty.

Powerful article and well worth a read. I kind of wanted Belgium to win the World Cup anyway (even though they left out the brilliant Nainggolan) but this seals it.

You’re right, it’s been more measured this time. Think that’s a lot to do with the Southgate factor, he speaks well and strikes the right tone. But results will define it all. Whatever the narrative and outcome enjoy watching the soap opera.

Best wishes to our English neighbours. Love the way they build themselves up into such a lather beforehand, and then when it all implodes how enthusiastically they throw themselves into the post-mortem witch hunt. Always an entertaining mix.
