    So still wondering why the VAR checks every goal even when it appears at first glance unnecessary?

    He probably meant his brother Andy who got promoted to the select group this season.

    Law Changes for 2019/20 Season

    VAR only gets involved for encroachment if a player who entered before the PK was the player who got to the ball after the save/miss. That's what happened here. As for the ball hitting the ref, the law states that a dropped ball should happen if the ball hitting the ref causes a change of...

    It's only for the attackers where any accidental handball is an offense.

    The VAR Thread

    The whole "we're gonna apply the laws differently here because we disagree with the interpretations" would make a lot more sense if the home nations didn't have 4 of the 8 votes on the board that makes the laws in the first place.

    Law Changes for 2019/20 Season

    Europa League 2019/20

    It's amazing how much Scotland has fallen. Two teams in the CL group stage used to be standard.

    FIFA Women's World Cup 2019

    For example, you'll never see the American flag written on at a stadium like you see with the England flag (and other countries). That one would really get a widespread negative reaction. But like you said, bizarre cultural rules.

    The Copa America 2019 Thread

    This is straight from IFAB's presentation on the new LOTG. http://theifab.com/presentation-of-ifab-log-2019-20/ And this is the image from the Brazil match. And here's the LOTG text - "...it is not usually an offence if the ball touches a player’s hand/arm: • when a player falls and the...

    FIFA Women's World Cup 2019
