Everyone cried for a week about United’s controversial goal against City.

Fast-forward to today and not one mention that the referee should have given us a penalty, except your post celebrating a terrible refereeing/VAR decision. Where were you last week? 😂
I didn't think it was a pen at first glance, but the replay definitely showed it should have been.

It definitely should have been but what can you do now? It’s true what they say that everything evens out at the end of the season. Oh well, we move on.

Olise class finish, not at his best tonight, but been very good most of the season. If he can just polish his finishing in general play he could be a £50m player.

Palace deserved a break, were better v Chelsea and beaten by a moment of class, it was our turn tonight.

Hughes gave us a bit of fight in the middle, replaced Eze who has been out of sorts. If Eze is not at his best, we can get swept away in the middle. Richards on full debut was good, paid £20m for him, taken him a while to gain PV's trust. Got to keep starting Eduoard up front, has a shot in him and gets on the end of crosses, gives us physical presence.

Held my breath re their penalty, think Richards getting a touch on the ball saved him.

The new "clear and obvious" is what comes into play and sometimes taken overboard. So many decisions this year for all teams haven't been overturned because of this

I think the not a clear and obvious error thing comes into play when there is some body contact but it's not enough to overturn the ref's original decision. Like in the recent Villa v Leeds game, Douglas Luiz put his arms on Rodrigo. VAR probably wouldn't have overruled either way. In that case, the ref didn't give it.

A trip in the area is usually more clear cut.

He's the definition of a player you don't realise is still playing PL football.

Would be a great pick up for a Championship club but don't think he offers much in the PL.

I remember him being the next Gerrard.

I think most clubs could find at least 20 decisions a season like the McTominay one that wasn't given. Annoying to United supporters maybe, but just not that big a deal.

I am guessing you read one of my very next posts where I said pretty much what you said?
