    You gotta have people that have played the game involved in these rule changing decisions, it's the only way.

    Right now everything is for sponsorship, and money. The idea of a 0-0 draw scares them as they believe that goals equals entertainment.

    VAR is a joke and this is just another example of it being so.

    I'm actulaly pleased our officials have come out and said that. Yes it hurts. But at the time for both Rose and Sissoko, I didn't think either were pens. They were under the rules of the day arguably, but should they have been pens in a rational, logical sport? No. At least our English game and officials have some sense.

    Neither would’ve been ones under any sensible refereering
    European football may have better refs but their softer with a lot of decisions

    Scouse style petition to get the game replayed?

    Reality is even in the PL most refs would have given that Sissoko penalty. Not saying they should've, just that they would have. Arm raised in the box would have been enough.

    Time to move on.

    That is bizarre. I would expect at least two per game. There are so many big moments per game with possible red cards, yellow, penalty, offside... way more than Riley mentions?

    I hate that referee with a passion. He gave the penalty so confidently after 25 seconds, minimal VAR input and a game ruined. That shouldn't simply be forgotten behind the red haze of Liverpoo winning their sixth European Cup.

    I think I misquoted him. I was discussing this with a friend and he reckons 2 per full fixture list is way too low. I'll see if I can find the original article (it was behind a paywall) but in retrospect, he was probably talking about occasions where the ref goes over to the off-field monitor - something the refs' organisation is trying to discourage with the mantra "trust the officials on the field" - rather than VAR decisions.

    Apologies to all; this is how misconceptions get started.

    you'd expect it to get that once its a few years in, once players realise they are going to get caught, they'll stop cheating

    So, much as I'd like to stick it to the Dirty Digger and reprint the whole article from The Times, it is behind a paywall so I will just quote a couple of bits under fair use policy.

    The full article is here: https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/english-game-will-be-lenient-on-handball-mike-riley-rjbf5pztt

    Despite the handball law, which came into force across all competitions last month, Riley thinks that there is flexibility for English football to interpret it in a way that will not cause a big increase in the number of spot-kicks.

    Premier League officials would need to be convinced that the defender was making a deliberate attempt to make the barrier bigger rather than extending their arms for reasons of balance.

    VARs have been used by the PGMOL [Professional Game Match Officials Ltd ] in 69 trial matches and that has led to 14 decisions being changed. Riley said on average that a review which stops the game is used once in every five games.


    So, a fairly sensible approach to keeping the game flowing and eliminating the need for defenders to keep their hands behind their backs when trying to block.
