      The call for offsides is so minimal that I'm not convinced that they could say with any level of authority that they are capturing the line at the exact moment of the ball being released. Let alone the issue of the frames per second

      Dont care what anyone says its ruining the game, it went off at mine when Hendo scored that winner and to have it taken away from us over something so minimal and inconclusive, with doubt over the actual technology and the morons using it

      bin it

      You do realise that is impossible, don't you?

      The linesman on the pitch had a guess and put his flag up for it. He didn't give the forward the "benefit of the doubt", he just put his flag up anyway, and the whistle was blown for it. So if it was binned, the decision would not change.

      The frame tells us all that he got it right. Last year, it would be onside. This year, the top of the arm is a scoring part of the body, so the broken line is drawn there. Repeat for the Mane case.

      The fact that we had to have video to “prove him right” shows that he never should have called it.....think about it. If people had to draw lines and have stop motion video to make sure it was the “right” call then he had no business calling it offsides in the madness and fast pace of actual gameplay. There’s no way he could have called that with certainty.

      Well exactly

      If its impossible then f**k or off because I dont believe for one second Mane was offside and that bollocks doesnt prove it either

      It proves it to people like you who are happy to believe that they got the release point so f**king precise that they can tell by a mm he was offside, however I dont believe they did get the release point down to the mm

      I'd rather have the raw passion and explosion football can be rather than the sh*te like VAR produces

      You can want it the robotic, bag of sh*te way, I'm not attempting to change your black and white view of the world, I prefer life to be full of colour and vibrant

      Souness got it spot on " it was not a tackle, it was an assault"

      The fact that the FA have not punished prickford is no surprise as he is englands No.1. Richarlison was slightly less severe, but got sent off.  Go figure...

      The more you seem the challenge the worse it gets, no one in their right mind could say it was acceptable!  If he had anything about him he would have issued an apology at the very least. Unless I missed that?

      Personally think the Richarlisson challenge was worse. Difference is that Thiago’s foot wasn’t as firmly planted as Virgil’s otherwise we’re looking at a broken leg.

      Here we are four days later and my blood is still bubbling away at 100 degree's..
      I don't think I'll ever get over this....
      My only beef with the whole thing is why, the day after Henderson lifted the Premier League Trophy we didn't go out and buy that animal Koulibaly to sit alongside Virgil.. We should've busted the bank to get him...70? 80m? more even? doesn't matter.. It would've sent a scary message across the world that no one is gonna take that trophy off us..
      My opinion of course..

      No he couldn't. But it shows me again why linesmen have imo always given the defender the benefit of any doubt over offside. Even now, if they have any doubt, the flag goes up at the end of the move for VAR to check it. The first call on Saturday looked offside to the naked eye, the second one couldn't see it with the naked eye at all. They took a chance both times and hoped they were right.

      When they tried to apply the handball rule in the penalty box, there was outrage when the laws that everyone has signed up to, were applied as agreed. As a club, we agreed to the offside rule applied in the way it is with the FA. As fans, we agree to attend games with VAR in operation, and then we complain when it has to step in and do it's job. Maybe the frame isn't 100% precise, but it's a lot more accurate than human error.
