    He could have just stood. There's nothing in that that warrants hitting the ground. If he'd just continued, instead of throwing himself like he'd been shot, he'd have kept the ball. That's nothing and doesn't warrant a FK.

    the dipper still dived like a clam, but if you kick someone it’s a foul

    Even if they lose, which I expect them to win, they'll still have a nice gap between them and city.

    I agree, it was a dive but it's a foul

    It's a duel for the ball. He doesn't get impeded in any way. Football is a contact sport. It's not a FK every time someone touches you with the boot.

    That's true but we are going down the route of any touch and its a foul. Rewind 20 years ago and the players wouldn't have even asked for a foul.

    Mane will do a Maradona next week to win it and the man in VAR van won’t want to upset Klopp and the cult again.

    Considering we spent our VAR luck this weekend too, we're in for a technological horror show next weekend. This thread will be 150 pages by the time the match is over.

    Sheesh... Vertonghen to get sent off when Ham Salad throws himself at his feet just outside the area for the opening penalty then!

    I reckon next week is the week where a ref will use the pitch side screen for the first time this season. There's been too much noise about it this weekend.
    That would be a good thing - but sods law it will be in our game and will result in the ref changing a decision that would otherwise have gone in our favour.

    Have they just hired on some new staff? VAR's finest hour to date, the overturning of the penalty Oliver awarded to Chelsea, with Hudson-Odoi instead booked for diving.

    Didn’t like it at first but the Southampton red was also correct!

    Perhaps if this thread reaches 100 pages they'll discard this useless piece of brick system. I can't believe what I'm seeing.

    They spend minutes watching endless replays of a situation with absolutely no chance of making a 400% clear cut decision whether it was a handball or not. They let the ref punish a rash, but unspectacular challenge extremely harshly because of a freak injury, yet seemingly do nothing about it afterwards. The offside decision from yesterday...Firminho's armpit, really?

    It's a useless, expensive, time consuming, unwanted and frankly ridiculous system. The perfect example of what you get when clueless idiots with no apparent knowledge of football - definitely without knowledge of what football fans have wanted for a decade - finally gets pressured into action, creating a monstrously poor system with ambigious and complex rules that no one understands, and everyone can interpret either way they see fit.

    The most spectacular fail in the history of football.

    IMO they didn't spend three minutes discussing if it was handball or not, but whether they could just ignore the whole thing as the Everton player is clearly elbowing Alli and climbing all over him.
