Unbelievable decision to award a penalty against Rico Lewis for his finger brushing against the face of an opponent as he headed a ball away.
What has this game come to.  Was it a clear and obvious error?  

Especially when minutes earlier Maguire pushes over an opponent which to be fair looked a penalty yet VAR was happy with that.

I've always detested VAR but it is just getting more and more ridiculous as time goes on. No referee in the world gives that penalty in real time. If you look at it often enough in ultra slow motion you convince yourself that the gentle brush of the face with a finger whilst jumping, has turned into a full frontal assault.

I’m all for improving the game using technology.
However I think that VAR should be suspended until officials find out how to use it.

Too many incompetent decisions taking too long at present.

It's funny because Maguire blatantly fouled one of their players in the box earlier in the match but it wasn't give. Make it up as they go along.

The ref would fit in nicely in L2 tbf.


I was there, the day Bradley Wood scored a 35 yarder!

From the black and white striped shirts
To the fish in the sea
You'll hear us singing
Coz we are Grimsby.

You won't hear us crying
But you'll hear us shout
Coz we are the Grimsby
And this is our chant.......... Grimsby! Grimsby! Grimsby!

I just wish England would speed it up a bit , too much sideways and backwards movement.

Grealish, annoys me he never cuts in and has a shot he has got the ability to do it but he passes it back instead of driving into the box and getting us a pen or even scoring a goal himself.

We need Kane on now.

Maybe VAR is not the problem, it could be the match officials and those in the VAR studio, who are also current match officials who may be incompetent.Think FIFA, EUFA or the premiership are looking at having specialist VAR people in the studio.

Dreadful performance by the ref. Some inexplicable decisions.

But that doesn’t excuse a pathetic and boring display by England. Aweful.
