      It seems to be that way. The amount of times our attacking players have been groped without ramifications has really started to bother me. On the contrary, if our attacking player touches a defender it’s an instant foul. That might just be a symptom of the game in general, but overall it seems like anything that can go against us does go against us. The English referees are a joke and suck at their jobs. The levels of ineptitude should not be tolerated. Who knows whether there’s a degree of corruption and bias mixed in as well.

      A problem with English referees? Have you seen the state of the game abroad? In Spain for example? As soft as the game has become here with all the new rules etc, it’s still way ahead in terms of physicality, thankfully. It is supposed to be a contact sport after all!

      The decision that really sticks in my mind is the Utd vs Villa game, where Pogba tripped himself over, ref awards a pen as does VAR, even though it’s clear to see to even a blind man that PP trips over his own leg. Then there is the assault on VVD by Pickford that is ignored because of “offside”. So because you MAY be offside, an horrific tackle that ends your season is allowed to go unpunished? Proper sh*te!

      Anyone correct me if I'm wrong, isn't that decision given because of a touch off Firmino? That was my take on it anyway! Initially thought it was offside until I saw the replay.

      No Firmino gets a touch on the ball when it's played in and my guess is VAR are calling the Leicester players onside because of that.

      Didn't see it first time only when they applied that green line and seen the 2nd replay and saw Bobby gets  a touch. That's my take on it anyway.

      Will? Already has with all the rule changes and fouls/cards given for negligible contact.

      Football stopped being “the beautiful game” a long time ago unfortunately. Still good to watch, but not what we used to love...

      The center ref even admitted later that they blew it in not giving a red along with the offside, but a red for that tackle should have meant at least a three-match suspension like the one with Richarlison on Thiago. Why no suspension them for Pickford?

      VAR doesn't award anything. He assists the ref only. It's called that for a reason.

      It was checked, the penalty decision by the ref was overturned, and the mancs dropped more points. I enjoyed it.

      Without VAR the decision stands, the cheats win again, and they still think they're going to win the league.

      Quote from chats
      When it's that tight you go with the onfield call and get on with it.

      No you don't. You go with the evidence, and the green line clearly shows that Firmino is playing everyone onside, so the offside call must be overturned, much as I wish it didn't. Millimetres matter at the end of May.

      At least we had VAR, to overturn the penalty injustice given on the pitch. Unfortunately it just delayed the equaliser by a few seconds, but I can't complain, as the VAR was again correct on the incident and what resulted from it. That is fair play in operation.

      Quote from sore monad
      When will they make the decision on whether they use it again next season? Could do with some kind of fans protest or something to let them know it isn't wanted Online petition, cancelling Sly subscriptions til it's gone, something like that to let them know it is not wanted. It's ruining the game for me.

      I was delighted that we got the penalty against us overturned. If it couldn't, it would definitely have ruined the game for me.

      There is no decision to be made. VAR is now a permanent, irreversible feature in our league and European games. So you either like it or live with it. Take your pick between them.

      You do have the choice to protest, petition or cancel your subscription services. However, it cannot and will not influence any decision on the pitch.

      F**k those lines man they are subjective. You don't know and the refs don't know the exact moment the ball contacts the foot.

      Definitely not mate. Hate it with a passion and what it has become. I had high hopes for it when it was first implemented but this season has been ludicrous in how they have applied it & the inconsistency of decisions is beyond baffling.

      I'm with you.

      Said it before, when the idea of it was put forward I thought,  sound, there will be some new experts with this revolutionary thing that cuts out any doubts. Instead,  we have the same nobheads, multi tasking and still pandering to the corrupt powers that be.
