      Yeah VAR is an ass but in this instance it's just following the laws of the game which I dont think anybody agrees with.

      I don't really engage in conversations about var because me saying sh*te isn't going to change anything but.....

      I don't think var's the issue, I think our officials are. Our game against Atalanta is the perfect example. There were incidents in that game that went to var but the game never paused, the game continued to flow but in the Premier League it's stop, start, draw lines, wrong decision, then they caved in when the public demanded the ref went to the pitch side monitor, more delays and just so he can agree with the var any way.

      In European matches the game flows, they've nailed it. In international matches it flows, they've nailed it. In the prem it's a sh*t show and that's down to the officials.

      Exactly how you solve that I don't f**king know.

      Mate because it was a different kind of handball. They’re fella had his arm held tight to his sides a more natural position if you were attempting a block.

      I thought they were pretty  similiar in actual play, I wouldn't have given either. Joe is trying to tuck his arm in as he's in a running motion, how is that a f**king penalty?

      Where were Gomez and Kilman meant to put their arms though? They were in a natural running position and trying to move their hands away from the ball. I mean all three weren't penalties but if you're giving two of them then I don't see why the third one wasn't.

      They were awful calls and we're now at a point where teams will be coaching their attackers on just looking to hit it at a defenders arms when a pass isn't on which is just absolute sh*te.

      That’s the new interpretation though - arm swinging out of natural position” handball. Short memories some only look back to the final in Madrid by your logic where was Sissoko to put his arm then?

      It’s a sh*t rule but I knew the moment I saw the replay first time he was giving it. That’s 2020 football for you.

      Big difference between those

      Gomez running.... you try running with your arms tight to your side

      From memory wasnt Sissoko static pretty much with his arm very wide pointing?

      Completely different

      Like I say, try running without your arms moving

      99% of the time if the ref goes to the monitor he will take the hint and go with the new decision. Him going to the monitor is purely to sell the decision change to fans in the stadium and players on the pitch.

      Only time I've seen a ref stick with his own decision was Graeme Scott last week and he made a real f**k up in doing so by ignoring a clear foul on Hojbjerg in the build up to Brightons goal V Spurs.

      I dont think we will see that happen again any time soon.

      It's a farce of a rule mate which I expect will be "softened" next season after consistent legitimate complaints over ridiculous penos given week in week out from here to the Summer.

      It’s the rule though. Both instances their arm was in an unnatural position. Not saying I agree with it just that I knew he’s giving it upon first review.

      Is it though? My thinking is because VAR make so many mistakes they put the onus back on the ref. That way the ref gets the blame and not VAR.  >:D
