Im still not convinced it was a free, but it was definitely offside
It was a free, and it was onside. The penalty against us was overturned. Case closed.
My post game analysis was on our channel, hoping, expecting probably, for a serious discussion on why we lost and the way we disintegrated in the last 15 minutes. Should have known better though. Switch it on and there's Gillespie and McAteer ranting about VAR, trying to argue what exactly offside looks like. The channel costs the equivalent of 7 quid per month. When the game has gone the way this one has, there must be more to it than the referee.
I'm struggling to see the reaction to Thiago. The man is world class, with multiple league winners medals around his neck. He's still trying, like the rest of the team, to deal with the unique season this is. I don't think he's been any worse than anyone else tbh, although he hasn't influenced games as much as we hoped yet. But he'll get there in time. It took Robbo and Fabinho 6 months to become regular starters. Now if they're fit, they play.
There really is no excuse for the collapse that followed the equaliser. It was a blast from the pre VVD era that we hoped was history. Vardy could have had 4 goals in the game rather than 1. As for Allison, we've known he's been fragile for weeks, and for his own good as much as ours, he needs more than just a grilling from Jürgen that he got after the last game, before things get any worse. Jürgen now has to decide if he values a keeper with experience who makes mistakes, over a keeper with less experience but has been the motm every time he's been called for. It's as important as any decision he makes between now and the end of the season.
