How easy it should be

They've been prepared to look at how it works in Rugby union and adapt it for football.  Why we can't do that I'll never know.

I've still not seen a photo showing Wesley's heel offside.

Rather pointless as the picture as seen on TV with those yellow and red lines which are not accurate as the picture is not exactly in line with Wes's heel in conjunction with the exact moment it was played forward.

I think his heel probably was offside, but it wasn't "clear and obvious" so they shouldn't have overturned the on pitch decision. Plus, the goal was scored a different phase of playing, so there was no need to even look at whether Wesley was offside in the first place.

As things stand if any part is off side its offside. Personally I think it should be changed to the part of the body that makes contact with the ball. Rather than any body part which can legally touch the ball.

I personally think they were instructed not to use it so that some of them weren't made to look bigger c***s than they already are.  ie, Kevin Friend!
I think this is rght, Dave.

So, VAR was used at FA Cup games today where the home side was a Premier League team, but not anywhere else.  How can they possibly justify that?

I think it has been done previously. Still wrong, though.

A lot of whining from Leicester about Marvellous' "handball".  Has anybody seen a decent angle on it?  Ref must have had a good reason - ball going over bar - or something to disallow but I guess we would have been disappointed not to get the decision. 

Hate the idiots however that go that would have been 2-1 to us without accepting that the whole game would have been different.  We may have gone back on the front foot earlier and smashed them 5-1 - no one knows

Attackers are 100% called on handballs due to the new rule change so there is no such thing as accidental then. However defenders still get the benefit of accidental and VAR would have called it on field decision in that case. During the world cup, it was dabbled on un-natural hand/arm position but that seems to have been dropped. If you look at it in real time after slow Mo, the ball was coming so fast that the arms were protecting face. The pace meant it was more ball to hand then vice versa.

It was one which could have gone either way but was not 100% a penalty.

I've just seen the goal Wolves had disallowed last night by VAR.

Aside of the utter idiocy of another goal being called offside by a fraction on a player moving away from goal, I don't think I even understand the offside rule anymore.  From the corner, three of the four passes are backwards - I thought you could only be offside from a forward pass?  But the only forward pass involved in the goal wasn't the reason it was disallowed.

Any ideas?

The fact that the ref didn't seem to have a clue why it was disallowed either says it all and he's supposedly in charge of the game.

Nope, everyone assumes it is forward passes only because there is very little times that a backwards one will be offside.I might be wrong but the attacking receiving player needs to be level or behind the attacking passer still at point of pass otherwise some of these two on ones would be called back.

I've said before, I don't mind the offsides called by VAR as that is now one of the absolutes in the game rules as is. There are still too many others which is interpretation of the viewer. Blame the rules for stating offside is now decided by mm and not the technology though. However, my issue is how far back are they taking these. There has been some goals allowed as fouls in the buildup have been ignored as too soon before the play. However our one a few weeks ago, and Wolves last night was several passes before the goal, and the decision against Shrewsbury in the FA cup replay was so long before the attack scored that even the highlights team didn't go back far enough at the time.

A lot of the anti-VAR sentiment would be fixed if the officials just explained what was going on - Engels today being a good example. Ref tells the stadium what has happened and then you shrug - like with offsides. It's still sh*t though.

It just isn't being used right.  Take the Engels penalty decision as an example today.  Referee on the field doesn't give it, but says to VAR official, could you just check it for me.  VAR official watches replay and either says I agree with you or you might need another look at it.  In the latter case, Ref then goes and views it on a monitor and either sticks to his original decision or changes it.
