He might not be playing at the top of his game but he’s such a good bloke is Mings. Terrible And very sad thing to have happened to Afobe’s child.

Terrible thing for Afobe and his wife.  Life just 'aint fair sometimes. Damo's daughter's friends child too.  Horrible.  Wrong thread I know.

Think the ‘I don’t know’ non celebration shrug we have seen from El Ghazi and Mings in the previously two games can be added to the list of reasons that VAR is negatively impacting the game.

Spot on from Murphy (can't believe I'm saying that)

Look at the Villa Vlogs from the game and you'll see how right he is.

No one has mentioned our disallowed goal due to Jacks trailing walking leg being a few inches offside. Jack and the last defender are basically level with his trailing leg a fraction of a second behind as they walk towards our goal. The linesman incorrectly flagged for a different reason (according to the live commentary), and this is another example of how offside decisions in the VAR age are being poorly implemented.

He was offside and the Lino said Grealish (lip reading)

Indeed. I can't believe that as Grealish was looking across the line to make sure he was onside, he didn't remember where his trailing foot was. How much a week, and he can't even do that?

But didn't VAR effectively work in our favour in this instance. If there had been no VAR the ref would, on the linesman flagging, probably have blown for offside. But because of VAR he let play continue and then reviewed. OK it was offside in the end, but VAR, and a good decision by ref., put us within 2" of going 2 - 0 up.

It's getting ridiculous this VAR get rid of the bloody thing I mean look at Tyrone Mings goal brilliant Volley and Tyrone wanted to dedicate his goal to Benik Afobe for the terrible loss of his daughter and he couldn't which makes me so mad about this VAR.

I have no idea tbh. There are several rules that are being applied so inconsistently with contradictory outcomes that it seems they change their minds to justify the decisions made by on field match officials or to protect the VAR official. It’s almost as if they are making it up as they go along.
