Man Utd V Chelsea

Not a fan of either team but as a football fan VAR is killing the game.  Penalty given for inadvertently standing on somebody's foot long after the ball is played so in no way did the foot clash change the play.

Something needs to change.

No going back now, too late I’m afraid. Whole thing’s fųcked, best to just accept it.

But VAR only highlighted something the ref missed, then VAR pointed it out for him to have another look, so VAR did it’s job but did the ref get it correct first or second time?

Good point.
Would love to have seen the on field referee say no penalty.

Has a referee EVER stuck with his origional decision after looking at the screen?


If the football is bad you can always watch the gulls.

It was a penalty. Lucky he didn’t break his metatarsal.

I’m no fan of VAR, but there it was justified.

I can see why it was given, only because you become normalised to these things being given.

I just don't see it as a penalty. The Chelsea player is planting his foot in a natural way just as Antony puts his foot down underneath.
It's not deliberate, reckless or endangering the opponent.  Must every accidental contact now be a foul?

There’s just been a VAR delay to check a McTominay goal. It really does suck all the joy and spontaneity out of watching football

I hate the term ‘deliberate’ being used. Who deliberately hurts an opponent, other than a scumbag? Who deliberately fouls someone or handballs in the box? Nobody. Nobody in their right mind would do that. A foul is a foul, whether you mean it or not.

It's not so much about deliberately hurting an opponent, it's about deliberately fouling them.  

There's also the question of intent.  We've seen players lose their head when they feel aggrieved and subsequently dive into a challenge with little regard to the consequences.  They need punishing.

Accidentally treading on a foot that a millisecond earlier is placed directly underneath where you are about to put your foot down is not a foul surely.
