Ball to hand not hand to ball . Another shocking ref decision #FWWC2019 #NEDJPN

Really can’t stand this new handball rule. It needed more clarity, but this amounts to zero tolerance —“If it hits the hand/arm, it’s a penalty” — which is just stupid.

This happened last night during Uruguay vs Chile. Luis Suarez ran to the referee to tell him to book the opponent for kicking a pitch invader running on the field. This guy is absolutely mad, out of his head 😂😭

And here’s a clip of Luis Suarez demanding that an opponent is booked for tripping a pitch invader

The sadness is that Newcastle had something profound in their grip, but never truly appreciated what Benitez meant: better. And, a minor, telling detail ... I’m told Rafa was given no prior warning today’s statement was coming.

I was in the away end after the Leicester City win in April. The post-match chanting went on and on, an outpouring of love for the club and gratitude to its manager. Benitez's greatest achievement wasn't getting results, but uniting enough broken parts to even make that possible.

Spot on. And this is the kind of thing that, because it comes down to soul and emotion, rather than numbers, the Ashley regime has never come close to understanding

It is with disappointment that we announce manager Rafael Benítez will leave Newcastle United upon the expiry of his contract on 30th June 2019. Full club statement: https://www.nufc.co.uk/news/latest-news/club-statement-rafa-ben%C3%ADtez … #NUFC

Always felt like it was going to end this way, with Benítez and the Newcastle board miles apart not just on contract issues but on the way forward for a club that has been happy to tread water. A big loss for #NUFC

José Giménez's dedication to getting inside Radamel Falcao's head when making his international debut for Uruguay is the sort of pettiness we can all get behind.

Tough match tonight, but I like this line-up. Very light on top-level experience, but loads of talent there. Good to see Foden starting after all

Danny Fullbrook doing what he loved and did best at an England press briefing. Funny, caring, loyal and fearless. Just some of things we lost on his passing away seven years ago. 
You’re with me every day Fearless. Love you brother. X
