Traditionally, the Rags have always got the benefit of the doubt (and then some more)
Yesterday they had a stonewall penalty not given and another strong appeal turned down.

Decisions like this make VAR a joke at best (and a results facilitator at worst).

I will not pass judgement on VAR until we see how the critical calls go when the Dippers are playing.
And there will be plenty of those to be made.
The Dippers are going to be in tight matches particularly away from home.
They have a really tough schedule through XMAS and have no depth in their key areas.
They play on the edge when attacking and defending - lets see how those calls go (or if there is even a call made!)

It's shite, too much grey area, robbed last week, open to interpretation and the laporte incident was a load if bollocks.

Shoulder


Can you score with your shoulder still? I thought they'd changed it to the whole arm?

Ok, this is not VAR, this is not the same as Spain, Germany or even Italy. This is corruption on prime time.

Seems a bit bent . Some saying he stood on Silva's foot but not intentionally, still means it is a foul and therefore a penalty.

isnt the linesman supposed to wait to put his flag up for a goal scoring chance or did I just imagine that? Because I'm not certain that Raheem was offside the the end there

Bent as fuck . Foul on Merlin anywhere on the pitch all day long VAR turns into a freak show because it’s in the box and a stonewall pen just fuck off absolute corruption. Here is Asia Andy Townsend was commentating and called it a pen straight away and called the VAR decision an absolute joke so how come back in England it is being edited differently?????? Only one answer CORUPTION !!!

I only saw a clip of his post match but he looks quite fed up with it and even seem to hint that the challenge to win the league will be even tougher this year because of officiating

I don’t care which club you support, if you can watch that replay on Silva and say no foul.... you deserve a slow fuckin death.

Pens are going to be denied all season long because the standard is clearly extremely high or because the ref thinks they see what happened (and are wrong) and decides to not use it to check.

Yet, for offsides it will be overly used and the same for goals denied due to accidental handballs in the box that don't directly lead to a goal.

That's the trend.

I am of the opposite opinion that as he never had control of the ball then it's a coming together.
