To me it's obvious the VAR had no absolute certainty of whether the ball hit his arm. The footage they used for reviewing were so ambiguous/ineffective/blurry, In the end it's more of a benefit of doubt that they gave it to them. Because not giving it they may be under another stressful questioning after the game by Palace and media yet again while involving us. Also it's so late in the game while we were still leading, so they were just choosing the less detrimental outcome and gamble on that it wouldn't affect the result after all.
Agree.

I remember a couple of seasons ago away at Brighton when Kane was hacked down in the box near the end but as we were 2-0 up VAR did nothing.

The lack of objectivity with VAR is frightening and renders it completely pointless in its current form.

I mean I've no doubt it probably is but who the hell has the spreadsheet for this going back to the early 90's?
Probably the same people that created a new Premier league table after taking in to account the so called ease of schedule and predicted xg 😆

When are the refs going to start protecting our players. This stat is since Liverpool. Seems intentional.


Spurs last 30 fouls - 5 bookings

Last 31 fouls against Spurs - 0 bookings.

I am in a Maccy D’s here on Kilkenny Ireland this morning and picked up the freebie copy of the Irish Independent to have a gander of the sports section to see what last night’s match report was like /

Unfortunately there wasn’t even a mention it’s all chat about Man City & United plus Liverpool.

No word of a lie - nothing.

It was a bit sexist old man-ish wasn't it? I'm disappointed in Roy, he is normally always a real gentleman. Her first question was "Roy, how do you assess tonight?" and he replied: "I can never answer those questions I really can't. How do I assess tonight?" She then asked him what his overriding emotion was and he got sarky again saying it was another question he couldn't really answer before at the end of the interview saying something about his overriding feeling is disappointment about not being able to build on the first half performance. So why didn't he say that minutes earlier? He was also sarky about her asking if he was frustrated that their goal came so late and should they have found a way through before that. He replied "Again, I don't know quite know what to say to that, yeah, maybe we should have scored five or six against them"
Considering how much his team got away with in that game he should have been happy he didn't have anyone sent off. If anyone deserved to be chippy about things it was Ange!
Can see him as Moyse's wingman, prowling London's nightclubs looking for women to slap.

It was super weird because I swear I saw a version on the tv that showed it clearly then weirdly straight after they never showed the same one again. Or maybe I had my biased goggles on or something. But the VAR images were rubbish. You could still see the ball change direction though. But hey whatever guess we should just suck it up.

Yeah they did once, you could see it change direction as it passed his hand.

It then looked like they tried to review that moment again and just gave up.

TBH I couldnt tell if it touched his hand or not. I only saw his hand moving backwards which may indicate that he touched it and tried to move it away. But I cant tell if the ball changed direction. So I would be far from calling it obvious VAR mistake

Honestly its a farce that the VAR couldn't see the ball change direction twice, once off his shoulder/chest then again as it passed his arm.

The only fair outcome of this has to be a replay...that's how this works, right?

What does his reaction have to do with the sex of the interviewer?

Andersen got booked towards the end last night, pretty sure it was for a foul.

I suggested it had the patronising vibes of sexism I didn't say it was sexism. He was suggesting that she was asking silly questions and his tone was very condescending as if she was out of her depth.

As a woman, I genuinely didn’t get that vibe. Just think he was a bit miffed with the result, with the same kind of questions, didn’t want to comment on the same stuff as before.
The questions are always there to lead them too. There are a lot of idiots out there but not everything is that. Especially as I’ve seen him been respectful before.
