Unfortunately the red line, (Jota) is shown to be in front of the blue line (defender). If you know the offside rule, you know what that means.
Awful decision yesterday and it feels like we get a lot of these ones go against us. I’ve watched it back about twenty times and I still don’t understand or see why it’s offside.
I’d rather they bin VAR as football was certainly much more enjoyable before it came in, but presuming it stays then they need to address the offsides immediately. If it takes the VAR team several minutes to draw lines then it’s fairly simple for me, they’re on side.
They’re doing it the wrong way round in opinion. They look for a body part of the attacker to be ahead of the defender and if so then they’re offside. But they should change it round to any part of the attackers body is level with the defender then they’re on side and it would be much easier for everybody.
Thought the red card for leeds was a joke yesterday too. We all know that side of the game went out ten or fifteen years ago but that was never a red. Wasn’t even a booking not that long ago. And it wasn’t even a foul not long before that!
You're trying to argue that a kick in the back of the knee is a joke, are you? You would be lucky to get away with just a yellow 15 years ago. Under today's rules, it's a foul and a red card and a 3 game ban, and because it is, he won't be able to do that to us next week.
Watching the offside call in our game once, is enough to tell you it's offside. The lines were clearly drawn out for you by Madley and his team, all you have to do is look at them. We've got those calls in our favour before, we've got them this season, we will get them again, and we get them against us occasionally. If people don't like them, the rules may be changed the following year. (although there are no plans to do so atm)
VAR strikes again, spud v manure dear oh dear, Roy Keane summed it up perfectly for me " if that's a foul we'd might as well pack up and go home "
The PGMOL even come from under their rock to explain the decision.
Bloody gets more farcical game by game
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?
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.
Keane stayed put, and I'm sure he'll be back for everyone to laugh at his on air screeching competitions with his fellow pundits again before we know it.
