That second penalty yesterday was just ridiculous. The fact that they didn't even question the initial call is just ridiculous. Sanchez didn't even put in a challenge! They should have pulled that one back and booked Vardy for simulation.Vardy diving and winning pens all season shows what a disaster VAR has been
VAR needs to be binned off.
Sky Sports News understands the club are absolutely incandescent at recent refereeing decisions and they are demanding at the very least an apology for Frank Lampard and his team; Toffees were denied a penalty in 1-0 loss to Manchester Citywww.skysports.com
That is my main issue with it. It has taken away the joyous spontaneity of celebrating a goal.Hate it it’s shit. Ruins celebrating goals. It’s shit.
Calm down Cloughie, It's not 1987 anymoreFor me if your in an offside position you should be given offside. As for this bollocks about not interfering with play what's he doing on the pitch then. The law makers have fucked about with the offside rule many times but, the best rule is if the attacking side has a player in an offside position then your offside. That would make the rule clear to everyone.
Exactly. The people who are misusing the VAR system are bringing about this condemnation of the part it has to play in modern football.I don't agree, but I do believe that they have proved that they have zero appetite for reform, or even introspection on any fucking level whatsoever. I've said before that when VAR was first introduced I seriously thought that the rules were so bad that they were honestly self-sabotaging VAR so they could be justified in retracting it. Then it just kept going and they never learned anything or tried to improve anything.
The league has more or less adopted the position that they invent the rules for VAR on the fly, and to suit the attitude of the on-field referee.
VAR in this league is run by a pack of clowns.
Vardy fouls Sanchez if anything then throws himself over he does it all the time. Even the Toby one he sees Toby's leg coming out an makes sure he goes over itSome players are just getting clever with it. But even on a second viewing you could see Vardy instigate "contact" by grabbing Sanchez's arm before throwing himself. Disgrace.
