    Surely it's only a foul if it impedes them in any way?

    Don't think it was a clear and obvious error by any means. If Liverpool got given one of those against you lot you'd have been crying about Livarpool for weeks.

    As I predicted before it came in it's now a non contact sport in the penalty box.

    There’s a bottle of rum about to get pegged at the wall and his son’s Xbox is getting the claw hammer.

    I didn’t realise you made predictions before it came in bro. You’ve never mentioned that.

    What the **** is Walton warbling on about?
    Robertson takes a big swing, completely misses the ball and hits Welbeck. Why isn't that a foul?
    It's like they're talking about something else entirely.

    "In the past, we'd have just carried on." Yeah, that's what VAR is supposed to correct, FFS. <doh>

    Didn’t Docherty give one away for us in a similar fashion?

    didn’t see Libby going crackers over that

    Nah, that’s a straw man, you can’t argue with that call imo. He’s gone to clear the ball, missed it completely and caught Welbecks foot, it’s a clear foul. I don’t get the crying about it one iota. You see one similar virtually every game, usually as a striker goes to block a clearance from a defender and gets caught on the follow through. Foul given.

    that's because no one gets banned for diving on contact, despite it being obvious they dived.

    I'm sure everyone is having fun and rightly so but nobody is happy with VAR overall.

    I long for the days when in the Mane goal situation I celebrate wildly only to be denied seconds later by a linesman's flag. It was football and you lived with the decisions.

    The way I see clear and obvious is by asking if it's one of those where there'd be days of talk about it afterwards in pre-var times. Didn't think it was one of those personally.

    Each to their own.
