“If you hadn’t touched that, it probably would have gone somewhere else you know”

“It is usually how it works”



Yeah, that made me laugh.

Nailed on VAR penalty if it hadn't gone in.  A real knee trembler for whoever would have stepped up.

Knowing VAR, it probably still wouldn't have been given.

I wonder who would have taken it?

Jack or Anwar?

Anwar I guess, he's the only one to score one this season!!

Well thankfully, it wouldn't have been Whelan.  ;D

Be thankful they didn’t call it back and award a penalty so all our blood pressures weren’t tested...that’s the kind of half witted fuckery you could expect with match officials and the use of VAR at the moment. I didn’t go to the game but was tuned in to WM and jumping around the house and screaming like a nutter when it went in...with a tentative pause for any VAR intervention. Thank McGrath for the win.

One thing Mings deserves massive credit with the goal yesterday was how he kept a cool head inside the box to then lay it off for the shot. Most would have panicked and tried to score themselves.

And then claimed the goal anyway!  Brilliant!

As I mentioned in the Post match, that small deflection took it up and out of reach of the keeper. I think it might have been saved without that. Just glad it didn't take it over the bar though. Small margins etc.

Had it gone over the bar VAR should have given us the penalty as the foul meant Mings couldn't get out of the way

One thing of note was the absence of VAR in the match. We didn’t have any horrid VAR moments that I remember, we celebrated goals when they happened, and the ground didn’t even need to unite for a F*** VAR chant.

I was a bit surprised we didn't get pinged on AEG for the first goal. There's an argument he could have been impeding Foster in the goalmouth. I dont think he was but you've seen worse decisions given by VAR.

We’ve seen utterly nonsensical decisions given by VAR.
