so now VAR can get you sent off without actually being on :lol:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/50196446

Footballers beware, there is no escaping VAR.

Just ask Holstein Kiel midfielder Michael Eberwein, who is a contender for the unluckiest substitute in sport.

Eberwein was warming up behind the goal during a German second division game against Bochum on Friday when he kicked a wayward shot back into play.

However, VAR spotted Eberwein had touched the ball before it had crossed the line, prompting referee Timo Gerach to give a penalty and show him a yellow card.

It is the sort of innocuous incident that may have passed the officials by in previous seasons, but the presence of the eagled-eye VAR cameras means nothing is now missed.

International FA Board (Ifab) rules state if a substitute interferes with play, the referee can take appropriate disciplinary action and restart the game with a direct free-kick or penalty kick.

Congo forward Silvere M'Boussy took advantage of the bizarre moment of fortune by converting the spot-kick to bring Bochum level.

To make things worse for Eberwein, it is his only touch in a Holstein Kiel shirt since joining from Fortuna Cologne over the summer.

The actual rules state that substitutes must warm up along the side lines behind the assistant referee so he shouldn't have even been behind the goal line.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-cambridgeshire-50242601

Cambridgeshire driver caught with provisional licence 14 years out of date

A driver has been caught on the roads with a provisional licence 14 years out of date.
The man was initially stopped by police for having no insurance on Wednesday in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire.

It was only after further checks officers from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit realised he had been driving as a learner for over a decade.

He has now been reported and the car has been seized.

that's a LOT of revenue

Councils’ annual parking surplus hits £930m

November 16, 2019 12:01:00 AM
English councils made a record £930 million surplus from parking activities in the past financial year, according to a new study.

The figure for 2018/19 represents a 7% increase compared with the £867 million total during the previous 12 months, research commissioned by the RAC Foundation found.

The surplus in 2015/16 was just £744 million.

Local authorities received an income of £1.746 billion from their parking operations in 2018/19.

patience is clearly not a virtue

Drivers have been warned not to break the law by going the wrong way on the M5 to avoid long queues.
Highways England said it had seen "traffic driving the wrong way into Avonmouth" following an accident northbound between J18 and J17 earlier.
It said in a tweet: "This is illegal. You are putting yourselves, our roadworkers and other road users at great risk."
Traffic that was being held has now been released, a spokesperson said.

looks like one did it and the others all followed suit :roll:

I found it difficult to navigate around but then trips to the South coast are very rare from up here

More Council hypocrisy :roll: :roll:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-bristol-50587738

Quote:
A council planning to ban people from driving diesel cars in a city centre has acquired dozens of the vehicles for its own fleet.
Bristol City Council has added 64 diesel-powered vans to its pool as part of an upgrade, a spokesman confirmed.

Similar hypocrisy down here.

Council banging on about stopping diesels and the like from the city center, and wanting everyone to have eco vehicles.

Yet when it comes to bin lorries they recently decided to not buy electric trucks as they were double the price of the diesel versions.
