      How many times....... Its not V.A.R., ITS THE MUPPETS OPERATING IT.

      Is that to the same tune as "his name's not Keano, it's Robbie Keane?"

      I suppose the one good thing about VAR is that it does remove any doubt about whether officials are biased or not. I mean, there is no other explanation for today's decisions to call the ref back over Andy Robertson's foul, but not over Harry Kane's leg breaker.

      And then there's the total weirdness of nobody being able to see the massive foul on Jota in the box. Paul Tierney had a great view of it, and Chris Kavanagh in VAR land had as many views as he wanted. Absolutely laughable. They should be charged with bringing the game into disrepute after that performance today.

      If they're as thick as each other it doesn't really matter whether you have another set of eyes and as many camera angles as you like.

      Yep, he basically said it was sh*t reffing but he understood why " low foot bullshit"  on the Kane mong challenge
      However on the Jota peno he quoted  "I think it was a penalty. When I was a boy, I was taught as a forward to get in front of the defender and that's what he's done. Somebody said yesterday that it wasn't given because he stopped, but surely you're easing up to get your balance to strike the ball"

      Manc intentionally raises hand. Manc slaps opponent in face. Mancs put ball in net. Mayhem. Uproar. Farcical. How dare a ref disallow a goal by the mancs. Does he know who they are?  :f_steam:

      Of course it's a clearcut foul. It actually looks worse at full speed, than what the ref saw. Given he was already on a yellow, he was lucky to stay on the pitch imo. Lazar Markovic was getting sent off for it against Basle at home years ago, long before VAR was available. Last year the VAR was taking those decisions directly. Now the ref uses VAR to see the incident for himself and make his own mind up. He was labelled a "biased manc" here, for giving the penalty in the derby. I don't think so after this.



      Refreshed one of your quotes on McTominay / Son when United played Spurs.

      The answer you'll get is it was checked for a straight red card offence. Technically you could justify it as violent conduct, but I think it would be harsh to give a red card and a 3 game ban for that tbh. And if it was given, you would have the same people whinging that the game's gone soft.

      One thing we noticed last week is the lack of knee taking before games, for the first time since the virus hit. Surprisingly enough, not doing it is returning to normality at games, not the imminent breakdown of society that it has been made out to be. One wonders if the England team will insist that it still has to be done before every game. 

      Another thing we've noticed this season is the amount of injury time in games. With the extra subs rule, 5 minutes added on at the end will be standard, before you consider time wasting, injuries, VAR reviews etc. So 7-8 minutes could be normal, rather than the exception.   

      :lmao:

      Last in the table when we face them next, aka every other team in the league is ahead of them.

      Setting new records every week....

      You look/sound like a Cnut every time you post  :f_doh:

      You can refresh it as many times as you like, but you don't understand the rules, you don't understand VAR, and you admit that yourself, so you're not going to win this argument no matter how often you post it up. And in any case, most of your mob should have bigger things to worry about these days, than a footnote in a game that didn't affect it's outcome, 2 seasons ago.
