TV highlights?

At least Alan provides them for Charlotte games.
Just waiting for the lad filming it on his iPhone to upload it...

Amazingly despite Tier 9 of English football being a similar, if not better, standard as the MLS no huge TV deal. Its a scandal really

Gotta get on the phone with Apple, they'll broadcast any league with enough money. ;)

My only desire in life is for us to finish ahead of Marco Silva.

FFS @ one of my commentary pet peeves.

Hitting the bar isn't "unlucky", it's inaccurate. Less inaccurate than putting the ball in Row Z but still.

I'm not having that :LOL: when the margin to perfect placement is as small as a couple of centimetres, *just* missing it is unlucky. They're balls, not targeted missiles!

It isn't a shot on target you're quite right but a couple of inches and it's a goal so it's a bit unlucky.
Using the Imperial system to prove a point, for shame. 😂

I think the thing I find most interesting about it is that it only ever seems to be used in an attacking sense. A shot is just slightly off target? Unlucky. A defender misses a clearance by the same margin? Don't think I've ever heard luck get mentioned in that case.

At any rate, I think I just get rustled at the idea of pointing at something as ephemeral as luck as a major factor in deciding games. I get the same way (to a slightly lesser extent) when people talk about "momentum" in American football. It's impossible to measure in a standardized way.

I'm a stats boy at heart, I suppose.

It’s not even a shot on target, you loon!

😉
Only because a shot on target is defined as one where a defender/gk has to intervene to stop it being a goal.

You can hit the bar/post and the ball still goes in or you can hit it and come back out. It's fine margins.

Would you have considered it "lucky" if Diaz had scored there?
