Are they obliged to show that Alan Shearer clip before the game? it puts me in a bad mood before the games even started!

Me too. Norwich didn't show it the other week. Maybe today it was for the tourists in half and half scarves.

Iíd love someone to explain to me why Var stepped in to check the Mane booking was correct and it wasnít a penalty , after ref blew to stop play . Was that not the exact same situation as at Palace when Jack was booked , and apparently there was no mandate for var to check for a penalty then as , um , the referee blew to stop play ? No consistency at all as far as I can see

It seems to me that they change the criteria every week. Itís a joke.

It totally ruined the first half. Not being able to celebrate a goal until 2 minutes after it's scored is just nonsense.

I just don't understand how they can watch technology working so well in both cricket and rugby, where the VAR/TMO talks through his rationale and everyone in the stadium watches it on the screen (in rugby at least) and think it's a better idea to keep everyone in the stadium in football in the dark.
The cynic in me says it will happen in football when they have a signed a sponsorship deal or deals.  Goal check sponsored by spec savers. Red card check sponsored by Virgin Money. Etc. We all know itís coming

Yep 100% that is what VAR has been brought in for.
Itll improve the game my arse , itll just be another cash stream once its established.

Could see there was a real attempt on MOTD to avoid the mention of VAR - pity there grovelling to the Premiership was ruined by Frank Lampard's comments.

No doubt they will start editing out mangers comments in future regarding our favourite subject.

Imagine showing a replay of why our goal against Brighton was disallowed, in a relegation/title decider? Or more accurately, imagine trying to stop the ensuing riot?

Surely it helped us yesterday as they was barely anything in the Firmino "goal." I'd have given that personally as I generally dislike seeing those sorts of ones called for offside, was same when Spurs had one chalked off at Leicester. We will get one offside like that at some stage in the season.

Dave, you're normally the first to get pissed off when the authorities treat the fans as animals. And some fans already think the refs are cheating us and don't riot so what's the difference?

Treat us like adults and you never know, people might behave like adults. If fans can't control themselves because they think we've been cheated by a video ref then they should rightfully get banned from attending.

The ref was a bloody joke yesterday. Does he consult with VAR before he ties his shoelaces?

I'm still convinced that making a mockery of it is just a way to numb supporters to VAR so that it can be used to make sure the right team doesn't lose in certain matches.

3 minutes worth of replays at Goodison Park to try to determine wether there was a handball or not 😴😴😴

It certainly took a while and in my opinion they still got the decision wrong.

I think it was Mings and Engels that were either side of Trezeguet. If either of them had got onto the end of the cross and scored, it would have been ruled out.

For me Firmino's was a goal too. It's daft that they go down to the millimetre. There should be some margin of error - there is in cricket when they're working out whether the ball is going on to hit the stumps. I preferred it when they had the rule about daylight.
