The Athletic's Adam Hurrey is joined by Charlie Eccleshare and David Walker for the Adjudication Panel. On the agenda this week: a stock-take of the remaining Erling Haaland superlatives, commentators who greet certain goals with the words "AND HOW!", the maximum range a goalscorer can "give the goalkeeper the eyes" from and a delightfully subtle corruption of the old classic "hairdryer treatment".
Meanwhile, the panel decide the thresholds for "a matter of minutes", "lighting the blue touchpaper" and "no less than [Team X] deserved".
