Much prefer VAR for clear cut offside calls instead of handball or fouls

Offside is a straight forward decision... because of the “interpretation aspect” of fouls and handballs analysis in slow motion is a bit counterintuitive imo

I can’t believe the commentary around the Llorente goal... how in what way is it handball? Arm against body and the slightest touch made no impact on direction of the ball and game of his hip after?

Rule changes next season, but as of now there is no way that should even have been reviewed.

The reverse angle wasn't used by VAR but it was a handball offence, player tried to head it and it hit his arm.

The VAR replay didnt hace that angle available though and made the correct call based on the replay at hand.

So the same as when a player scores, and commentators don't notice the flag is up?

Guess correct ref calls are a bit of a buzzkill.
Doesn't really have anything to do with a call being correct or not (I haven't seen it so don't know).

Just that I thought we were through, had that high for a good 30 seconds, and then we were out.

Which is why I asked if you were complaining about VAR. Seems like you aren't, so no problem. Sucks when calls go against you.
