Offsides get far too much weight in this discussion than they should have. With a fairly minor amount of cost and effort (given the size of the league) you could pretty much fully automate it because it's both binary and entirely objective (other than the discussion over whether someone is interfering or not). Get that done and out of the way, just like we have with goalline decisions, and then see what VAR looks like without what is probably the most contentious part of it.

All I'll say about the penalty is that I'd have been annoyed if it had been up the other end. I can see the argument for it being so and not being a pen, but we'll see this happen against us I'm sure. Within a week you'll see a very similar challenge in a game go to VAR and not get given. It's like the Gordon pen in Newcastle Brentford compared to one that was denied for Brentford a few weeks back. Consistency is dire.

Was it the last world cup where they had "virtualised pitches" and a sensor in the ball so the computer replicates the players positions as soon as the ball is registered as hit. Not sure what it would take to fit the cameras across all 20 stadia, especially when someone like Luton appears, but it takes some of the fractions of a frame out of the equation then.

Re: the pen.

Fuck it. We benefited. So I don’t care.

Garth Crooks is a thick ******. The fact that he's being paid by BBC to do this useless team of the week crap by people who should know better and not waste Licence payers money is a diabolical state.
he is a fucking shambles

I'm quite happy to agree it wasn't a pen, just to piss everyone else off.

After this match, we now have the 3rd highest xG (I know, I know) across the top 5 leagues only behind Many Citehad and Barcelona.. Brighton a close fourth.

Well done Villa.

It’s a pen - I can see if you subscribe to the tired cliche, “he got the ball” which is applied far too broadly to any touch at any point, then you might feel aggrieved. But it’s a pen - if the MOTD pundits had spent more time concentrating on that rather than coming up with Duran Duran puns they might have clocked it.

Seems fair to me, we've created loads of chances in pretty much every game, only really Liverpool where you could argue we didn't do enough at that end.

This was a point Emery made after the game. He said previous weeks we took those chances and had the game pretty much won after 20 minutes. Obviously against Liverpool we didn't create much at all, and then first half against Palace we didn't take the chances, but generally speaking we're creating loads of opportunities to score.

xG should count double. And sexiest bra stats treble. Best VAR countdown choreography should get direct entry to the Europa League group stages.

That would definitely improve operations.
