    The standard of refereeing is great, isn't it? Oh wait...

    At least VAR is there to sort it out...

    After an absolutely horrendous week last week of balls ups, seems this week is starting in the same vein.

    Shout out to @Frogfish

    You seriously want to start this again ? Until the rules are changed this will continue to happen week in week out. Don't be shit-stirring cunt when we're losing.

    I said the rules are shit. I also said the referees are shit, as is their use of the technology.... they're getting stuff wrong within the laws of the game too

    That firmino goal being disallowed is a travesty. Do other leagues/tournaments using var have the same issues, or is this just the PL being clueless on how to use it?

    But the assistant isn't supposed to raise the flag when it is that close. And if they hadn't,  it would have been a goal... such a weird system.

    ... and then VAR would have ruled it out.

    Its a pain in the hole, but no issues with this.

    The Mane penalty/yellow card on the other hand ... with offsides they just make a black and white decision based on red & blue lines, and in the end you really can't argue, but with other decisions the subjective "clear & obvious" muddies the whole decision making process

    VAR would have called the goal back though, the picture above confirms that.

    I've heard it says that offside is offside, you are either on or you are not, but I have also heard things like the attacker is supposed to get the benefit of the doubt.

    I suppose by the exact letter of the law, Bobby is offisdes, but by the spirit of the law, a fucking arm?  Does that really make any kind of difference?

    Who cares though, we won.

    They pick the picture and lines, guys... there is literally a huge margin of error involved (read what FFF shared). If the linesman hadn't flagged the goal would have stood. No doubt in my mind.
    Also since when is the armpit a goalscoring part of the body? I thought it was head/leg/chest...?

    And that is still true, but with VAR the doubt is removed.

    Would you prefer it if the VAR decision making process was "well strictly that was offside, but if i didn't have this  camera angle I can see why there would have been doubt and so I am going to say not offside".

    For me VAR should remove the subjectivity, and it does that really well for offsides and for handball in the lead up to a goal, but then fucking reinvents itself as a subjective decision maker for all other situations

    Even that handball one went out the window the other week. Newcastle scored one that hit the forwards hand and then he finished it. Clearly visible on VAR but was ignored. There's absolutely no consistency.

    Anyone watching the Watford Chelsea game?

    Delefeou just got fouled, but not enough to take him down, then dived a second after.

    VAR gave it. Exactly the same as Mane's earlier, except it was a kick not a stamp.

    It's not even remotely consistent!

    There seems to be something in every single game. It's a complete farce

    It took all my willpower to avoid typing VARce there.

    Refereeing is poor but I’m glad we have Var. It gets more right than wrong compared to the refs.

    Off topic slightly but it pisses me off when deluded fans claim refs are biased. Shit no doubt, but not biased. It’s utterly childish.

    These highlights don't show it here, but you can just about make it out... the ball hits Joelinton on the arm and falls into the path of Schar and he finishes. Should've been disallowed but wasn't. A minute or so in.
