Wolves fans are all fuming over yesterday’s disallowed goal, especially as the Ref was Villa fan Andre Marriner. This conveniently overlooks the fact that

1. It was actually VAR that disallowed the goal, not the ref.
2. They earned a point last season against Man City with a blatant handball, but seemed ok with it that time.
3. As a professional referee, Marriner is forbidden to referee games involving the team he supports, or their biggest rivals. Wolves are neither.

4) the rules have changed for this season, if a referee had spotted it in real time it would have been disallowed too.
