I haven't read this thread so apologies if it has already been raised.
Why is it that when VAR is reviewed the field ref is advised to review something, he then goes to the side line to watch a replay and then returns with his decision, but yesterday, this didnt happen when the Paine/Miller penalty was overturned? Did he accept the decision from the other official without leaving the field to see it himself, or maybe he saw the review on the jumbo screen?

If they have to be there at least get them to sit in the corner somewhere. They're not there for the football or to add any atmosphere (by this I mean song selection is random and nothing to do with whats happening on field, eg The Great Escape at inappropriate times), but to have a bit of band practice. It's distracting having them march around the stands during the game.

Usually for black and white like offside, in or out of box they take the word from the VAR. Review is for subjective ones like enough contact for a penalty etc.. The obvious anomaly there is our city game where Evans reviewed on the grounds of there being some second contact bs.

I get the impression from that presser, that as soon as Monty took charge of the academy, he'd decided to set up a structure that would give him the spine of a team for him to eventually take into the senior ranks.

Got a tight knit group of talented youth, got them to watch seniors every week - Hoole, Melling, Clisby (till last season) - and was constantly telling them, I'll do everything I can to give you guys the chance to restore the pride in this club that these players have destroyed.

I think also weeding out the mercenaries has taken time aswell. The time stadjic used in his first season.

I think one thing Monty does really well is include Academy players i A-league training to expose them to the pace and experience of the league. Maybe once per week he will bring up 7 or 8 lads to participate in their matchplay practice. They're not only competing against experienced players but are having instructions on where to position themselves, pass etc by those same players.
As good as we went while Stajic was here one of the gaps was the transition of the Academy boys to top team level experience. Something Monty is doing very well.

Thought I'd share the YA post I did here for those who don't have Facebook.


Another masterclass from Dan Hall last night.
Here's a good shot of him in action.
Hang on, what's that in his pocket?
Oh, Will you look at that, it's the dimunitive Aleksandar Prijović.

I have it on good authority there will be an article on FTBL this afternoon that discusses exactly this.
