    Apparently its not just the players that dont know the rules....

    After all the claims and counter claims about Citehs first goal, someone on another forum ( I know, I shouldnt be reading other forums) put up a copy of Rule 11 to prove their point about the incident, but the bit I noticed was (and Im not quoting directly but), that when considering if a player is offside the hands and arms are IGNORED. So the VAR officials at several games this season, including at least one of ours, dont know their own rules, proof, if it were needed, that either training levels or, god forbid, deliberate corruption within the men in black needs sorting pronto. I really hope its the former, cos I dont even want to contemplate the latter, thats Bongo territory!!

    Might even be they're??? Dunno for sure I aint bin to skool for a very long time, and I probably didnt take enough notice when I did! Whatever, the principle statement is very much correct, they certainly don't.

    I was once told, if people can read what your writing, don't worry about the spelling 🤔

    Its a test but you can understand what is being said also the spelling is pants. The brain takes it onboard and computes it.

    My spelling and the way my thumbs have to type, get me into all sorts of trouble at work. 🥴

    In full agreement with you both about, understandable first and foremost. I can remember (just) when at primary school in the 60s they tried a new teaching aid called ITA, in the english department, it had come over from the states I think and involved writing how stuff sounded and that being ok, which only worked until we were tested on our reading and spelling using mainstream test papers at the end of term!! I reckon we as a school year lost about 8 months on our peers at the time, think it might have made me a bit sensitive to the odd pselingl istakem
