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.

McGinn seems to look knackered every second half. Today is no exception.

It's been disappointing but we've had about 20 shots, missed a sitter, had a goal disallowed, been denied a penalty and they should be down to 9. It's not like we've done fuck all.

Villa and Brighton have each had nineteen attempts on goal so far today.

They all go to VAR, for some reason VAR doesn't seem to want to give blatant penalties.
