Liverpool with a 7 point lead on the real (fair) table. Forever the victims and never the beneficiaries...

although when something does go against them in a big game expect them to wear club sanctioned anti var t-shirts in the next one.

Meanwhile in the actual VAR table:


Liverpool better off to the tune of 2 points. 3 disallowed goals for Liverpool, 2 against their opponents. Net benefit 2 points. City no difference from VAR. Leicester also better off 2 points. So no difference at all going off actual figures rather than opinions.

Walcott denied a penalty despite clearly being held back, trying to stay on his feet & getting his shot away goes unrewarded & defender unpunished.

Then DCL denied a goal bundled over the line with the top of his arm/shoulder & then yellow carded for it. Same part of his arm van Dijk used when Livarpool didn’t have a goal disallowed.

Some utterly bizarre logic in there. Claims 3 points for City if the penalty awarded at 0-0 wasnt given by VAR. City lost the game 1-2 so that would make it 1-1. Not a win to City. Basically a table of their opinion on how games would have progressed if not for the intervention of VAR rather than going off factual VAR decisions and their impact.
It’s just more hate that will make this seasons EPL title even sweeter if we win it.

Just seen that refs will be encouraged to use pitchside monitors in the league.

Something that should have happened from day 1.

Never understood why they have been hesistant to do so up until this point of the season. Especially after a goal has been scored. Play is stopped - take a look if there's any possible issues flagged by VAR.

West Ham players throws his head back into Holgate well off the ball, VAR gives it the all clear :moustache:

Yeah he sold it, but going down was the only way to bring attention to it. Every single other occasion I’ve seen anyone use their head into an opponents face regardless of contact has been a red card out of intent.

No monitor used either to leave the decision up to the on field official
