  1. you 're advice is great, but I am still pssed off with the ref .

    He was biased, soft pen, not making them retake, and calling a foul over in Peroz, when Vardy would have been through on goal in the 86 min cost us the win.

    i forget he also missed the push on Soy, but decided to book Hamza instead.

    Yeah but did you read the bit at the bottom?


    VAR wouldn't overturn it because Milner scored...

    I don't think you understand the issue, it is not really that difficult.

    Here is a summary of what can happen( taken from the fa website)


    " If the outcome of the penalty kick is a goal, encroachment by an attacking player will result in the penalty being retaken"


    The referee missed or didn't care because it was Liverpool at Anfield in the last minute.

    I'm well aware of the encroachment laws. If the ref spots it he should disallow or order a retake. If he doesn't, which it seems he hasn't on the occasion, VAR won't intervene. I imagine refs are treating it thr same way too, as it make little difference, especially when the penalty is scored directly.


    As per this article here https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.bbc.co.uk/sport/amp/football/48703852


    So do some research before you call peoples factual posts twaddle :thumbup:

    More twaddle, that article makes no mention of encroachment, it is about goalkeepers.

    Why are we still banging on about this?
    It was given, we lost the game. Pundits have all had their say and think Mane dived and bought the penalty. VAR didn't overall due to it not being an obvious error.

    Just move on instead of pulling every tiny detail of why it shouldn't have been given. 


    And did we really need a separate thread for this?

    the thread is about the penalty goal, not the decision to award the customary anfield pen

    The premier league said at the start of the season that encroachment wouldn't be punished unless the player came into play. So when Rice was playing for West Ham and managed to clear a saved penalty after encroaching, then it was ordered to be retaken, had he not got to ball it wouldn't have been retaken. Had one of the Liverpool players that encroached scored a rebound then it would have been ruled out, but otherwise it's let go.

    2019/2020 rules, don't know how you have come up with that twaddle



    The players other than the kicker and goalkeeper must be: • at least 9.15 m (10 yds) from the penalty mark • behind the penalty mark • inside the field of play • outside the penalty area



    2. Offences and sanctions Once the referee has signalled for a penalty kick to be taken, the kick must be taken; if it is not taken the referee may take disciplinary action before signalling again for the kick to be taken. If, before the ball is in play, one of the following occurs: • the player taking the penalty kick or a team-mate offends: • if the ball enters the goal, the kick is retaken •

    Lets not call Mane a cheat but lets say he is clever and took a big risk at the end of the game. Lets face it the worst would've been a booking. He dived there is no doubt about that and got away with it. I cannot comprehend why both the ref and VAR decided otherwise 


    As for Klopp my respect for him was great but now stands at zero. 

    you are on the wrong track blaming var.

    The referee has given the penalty,

    Var can only advise the referee has to whether it is a clear and obvious error.

    Which it is not.Blame the ref for bias, but it is not the fault of var.

    Very detailed and complimentary article, however there’s a lot of ‘Sky Sports News understands’ which I’d take with a pinch of salt. Says Benkovic didn’t impress Rodgers in preseason, wasn’t he out injured for all of it?

    If he was out injured for all of preseason, then there is no way that he could have impressed BR, so sky sports are right.

    At least from a footballing perspective.

  8. We need top 4 badly, failure and it is goodbye for sure, Perriera, Chillwell, Maddison.

    Possibly Tiellamans and  Soyuncu as well, would be a disaster.

    I am hopeful of a result Saturday, drew last year in the middle of our worst run of the season (lost 3 consec, drew at Anfield, lost the next 3), maybe we are suited to play them better than most.

    If we lose, not the end of the world, at the moment playing Liverpool seems a free hit.
