We are very poor when we get into the final third of the pitch. Especially when we have the likes of Grealish and SJM who should be doing more damage to the opposition.

75 minutes too late for El Ghazi.

Bringing on a striker in this situation who last scored in 2017 (?) dosen't fill me with confidence, can't understand Kodj not making the bench despite seemingly being in full training for two weeks.

With an extra man at this stage in the game, we should have them on the ropes deep in their own half. They don't even look like they have a man less?!

VAR check on penalty.

Edit: Not given of course.

I can't understand taking Conor off. With their massive defence, at least have a threat from outside the area.

VAR really has reached its nadir today.  Another ridiculous disallowed goal at Leicester.

VAR is fucking shit. My natural reaction when we score now is not to celebrate, but to quickly rack my brain looking for any tiny reason why it might be overturned.


I did exactly that, scrutinized the replay very closely and satisfied myself there was no way they could find a way to disallow it, paying special attention to Wesley's challenge on the keepr - and yet they still managed it somehow.  Unbelievable.

It's being implemented terribly given clear penalties aren't being given.
But giving the Liverpool one,

Speaking of VAR wait until you see the penalty Watford were denied. As stonewall as they come

Ultimately the ref gave that so they're just looking out for their mates.

Refs not even going to look at the pitchside screen is ridiculous aswell for these 50/50 decisions.
