How did football get to a place where that’s not a goal? VAR and the laws of the game just don’t work together. At least it hasn’t affected the outcome this time.
So is it right that if it hits Wilsons arm like that anywhere on the field but doesn’t result in a goal it’s ok? But if it results in a goal, not ok?

That’s my understanding of it. I could possibly understand it if the law was you can’t score directly off your arm. Possibly. But that wasn’t even the case here.

They keep trying to manipulate laws to make them so black and white that someone watching in slow motion and freeze frames can make the final decision. The problem is football isn’t black and white.

Surely they chance that rule, it's stupid. His arm was by his side and it wasn't on purpose either. Should be a goal every day of the week.

Think that's our CL hopes for next season done and dusted though. Dropped four points the last two games by conceding goals. Should have scored about 6 today.

Just been a terrible season all round. Need to reset for next season. Going to be weird playing Europa League football. Kind of hope we miss Europe all together to give us a better chance in the league.

You may need to get down to 8th to miss Europe.
If City win the cup final 7th gets a spot in the Conference League.

If we win we either get that spot or a better competition we earn through the league.

Hmm we can finish 8th though, Everton can go by us with a win and you are right behind us.

Normally when I hear a yelled name from the commentator I look up from what I'm doing to see it. Except when I hear Werner cause I know it's missing.
