Anyone got a link to the engels tackle on son from last season?
There you go and don't be surprised if Son looks a little different in this tackle :)


Perhaps London Villan is Steven Bergwijn's dad, though?

What the fuck was Trezequet doing, rolling around as if in intense agony or if he was being rogered in the immediate aftermath? Twattery behaviour.

It's amazing how many football fans don't understand the rules. The Brighton player does get a little nick on the ball but that doesn't negate the fact that he kicks Trez straight in his shin. It's a foul therefore it's a penalty.

Why canít football get VAR right? Cricket and Rugby get it right. Sometimes the players donít even expect goals to be ruled out. I think the cricket model is best with a certain number of challenges allowed and if they are justified they donít lose the challenge.

Itís not about fans knowing the rules or not knowing them. The decision not to award it went to multiple officials and they deemed it not a penalty. Your point assumes they donít know the rules.

Yeah you can rely on those guys at Stockley Park to interpret the rules correctly every time.

They are applying a rule so literally that it is ruining the game. There is almost nothing about VAR that fans agree on that is a benefit for the game.

But they are not. If Ollie was offside he was also fouled. So ok disallow the goal but don't ignore the obvious foul that anyone with two eyes can see.

Got to go back and think of the intent of the rule and then apply the tech from there.

Iíd rather we sorted our own shit in defence and in front of goal than debating something we have no control over. 
We do that and it becomes peripheral in this particular contest.  Iím more pissed off with some of our players than VAR. Fuck me, Cash managed to give the ball back to them twice in the build up to their 2nd.

Carragher and Neville are saying the same thing. The VAR has only looked at the offside and totally ignored the foul. If Watkins had gone down it would have been a penalty but he tried to stay up.
