Our academy players/3rd string seniors have nearly been knocked by Wycombe, Rochadale and Newport in the FA Cup and were knocked out of the League Cup by Colchester.Got no real idea of the 6th tier of English football, to be fair, imagine it would not be flashhot. Still Derby are battling for Championship survival, so it's no surprise that they are testing their main XI (especially with such a condensed league fixture)
They also have VAR for some of the FA Cup games, not allNo no. They have VAR in the league cup... Just not every round.
Either use it or don't. No half measures.
I've always thought it should be like umpire's call in cricket. If there's millimetres in it (for instance, using a fingernail to determine whether someone is offside), then it's linesman's call.Exactly. Or you know, clear and obvious. Don't think drawing lines to show you're 2mm offside is clear and obvious.
