either improve the tech so you can get incredibly high quality frame by frame footage or accept the inevitable margin of error that comes with not having cameras fast enough in place.

Nah. First one was a clear push. The second one was VVD toepoking a ball and then after the Palace player walked back into him and fell over.

but as ayew didnt head the ball and lovren wasnt at the ball, why is var checking anything other than if ayew should be sent off?

Because VAR is allowed to check if there is any infringements in the lead up to goal?

Nah on second thought can't be that, must be the FA trying to hand Liverpool the title and rip it away from City

yeah must be.

just find it odd that other pushes in the box havent been deemed hard enough to overturn, but this is.

Another that comes to mind, Villa vs (Brighton I think) ages ago where the keeper barely got touched and they disallowed the goal via VAR for a push.
keeper stuff is always chook lotto though. the palace goal shouldnt have stood as the foul occurred before tomkins got a head on it, but aurier barging into snodgrass i think it was just hours earlier wasnt looked at. just comes back to consistency and how this season has just been a massive frustration when everything was meant to be solved.

LiVARpool 👍👍

Still think the Scousers will win the league on their own merits, but blimey they have been extraordinarily fortunate that so many Video Assisted Ref decisions have gone their way.

Firmino offside vs Villa, handball vs Villa, Matip penalty vs Newcastle, Origi foul vs United, Mane handball vs United. We’ve had our fair share of ones that haven’t gone our way as well but it doesn’t suit the narrative.

Naturally when you’re on top people want to look for a reason to discredit you and the LiVARpool angle is the one people are going with for us. Reminds me a bit of the whole “Fergie time” thing with United. I’m not losing sleep over it and I don’t think any other Liverpool fans are either.

Was the Aurier/Snodgrass thing a pen shout in Spurs defensive box that was waved off by the ref?

Yeah. Was just as bad as the palace one. Attackers get away with less than defenders that's the way it seems to be nowadays

Fair enough, the Fergie Time narrative was true though:)

This current Liverpool squad just seems so likable (especially Mo Salah and Mane) so I am not unhappy they will win the league, except for the fact it was nice to be able to brag that Leeds have been champions of England more recently than Liverpool.

All good things must come to an end though, at the very least a Liverpool title will enrage Man U fans, so I would also be happy with your triumph from that point of view 👍👍👍

The only "technology" that should be used is the goal-line technology - that is purely black and white. VAR is bullshit and it undermines the refs and the game. It is destroying the game.

Leicester finishing in the league above Arsenal, Spurs, Man Utd and Chelsea would be the Feel good story of the season.

Can't help but take my hat off to those plucky Foxes.

The linesman flagged the Sterling one? How can he be so sure when it's that close? I thought they were supposed to keep it down in these situations and let VAR have a look.
I don't know, but he did.

You leave it down until the play ends then raise the flag if you thought it was offside.

If they think it is offside they are trained to flag only after the balll goes in the net to prevent interference with play.

Are Leicester really that plucky?

They are a well put together squad with a decent manager.
They're definitely punching above their weight. Maddison, Tielemans and Ndidi are quality but I can't see clubs lining up to pay big money for the rest of their squad. You would've been mad if you thought Perez and Barnes starting just about every game would get them this far at the start of the season.
