Also I’m seeing a lot of Man City fans saying de Bruyne was protecting his face? Surely that’s not an excuse?

Then either head it or duck.

So VAR shows the ball hits Billing's shoulder - replay shows them pulling his shirt prior to that. Didn't bother considering a pen to Bournemouth though.

Bournemouth must be absolutely shell shocked

Both times the ball hitting the shoulder but Stockley Park, inexplicably, saying arm 

What the fook are those tossers looking at?

Their online bank account balance as Man City's oil money transfers in, probably.

Actually we should Thank VAR...its actually Showcasing how incompetent and Power corrupt the ref -fraternity is.Their Moral fibre is up for grabs...

Like I have mentioned before,they are Cheating the sport....

Because if they are Really Not blind,and willy pullers,like all honest fans for One & half centuries innocently believed...

Then what other excuse could there possibly be..!!

 

Or Alien mutants have landed,took over anything representing blackshirts,and have no Human Concept of their own created footballing regulations.

Because if they were normal peaceful Aliens,they wouldnt create such controversy over something so common-sensically obvious...

It began One lost Night on a lonely English Country road,looking for a short cut..........

We fans all feel like David Vincent,trying to persuade  a skeptical world,that an allen  Invasion is taking place,the Nightmare has begun...!!

They're getting to us through our love and hate of football.....

 

We know and accept BJ is not Part of this World,but its got worse than Brexit Part II...

Its unreal how bad it has become. It must be the PL implementation of the VAR system, that makes refs second guess and overthink every decision, so they lose all logical football sense.

I think this was always likely to happen. The problem is not VAR. VAR has simply exposed how inconsistently the laws are applied. Especially handball.

I think what's good, and if it can be seen as a positive, is that people are talking about the context and (poor) quality of decisions as opposed to what was being talked about earlier on in the season, which was time taken for VAR to make a decision.

Theres still the odd longer decision but generally they seem quicker to make one. 

 

Hopefully the intense scrutiny of what happened yesterday across the 2 televised matches (and the Burnley/Bournemouth game) is a motivation for PGMOL to improve the standards. If not now then at the very least in the summer in readiness for next season.

The human element undoes the potential benefit of VAR, who knew!

 

Just let SkyNet IBM make the sodding decisions.

I havent watched much other leagues this year but last year there was definitely howlers in theirs too.if I remember correctly,a cross which came off a players head backwards and onto a foot up to a players hand and hand ball,penalty and yellow card was given by var.🙄.another this year,a goal was scored,looked good first showing but almost 5 mins later var said all good..there was absolutely nothing to look at all.oh and time added on to half 2mins??

VAR is crap and I don’t want it in the game regardless if it gets decisions right, because it’s clearly not. I don’t wanna hear about human error. A human error in my job and I’m in big trouble. These professionals get paid near 4x the average uk salary and have top training facilities. Don’t get me wrong the odd time on the pitch you’re gonna get a stinker, but make these idiots accountable for incidents like yesterday. VAR or whether it’s a shocking decision on the pitch. If I was a referee I wouldn’t want it in the game either. It’s making people finally see how inept they all are. They’re now scared to make a big decision as well. Majority of the time, VAR will back up his mate as they don’t want the scrutiny. It’s all a joke and I seriously hope we vote it out of our league at the earliest stage possible.

Shouldn't human error be called out though, even more so if they're earning more than whoever? They shouldn't get away with it just because they earn x times more than someone?

Right, but if the referee today was the only one in charge, he would have missed 3 clear pens? 

 

If I was a ref,id be thinking leave the close ones to Var so maybe not.

I think the speed of the game the odd thing missed is understandable, what VAR has done has put the same people who are missing those things onfield in front of a screen for them the still miss them. Onfield its understandable, in front of a screen its inexcusable.

 

All VAR has done is confirm how shit some of our refs are.

I completely lost it at that penalty decision given against us. We’ve had four handballs of a similar nature not be punished and we’ve had two against the top two teams. It’s hard not to accuse corruption.

That was kind of my point. They have the best of everything and they’re still getting a lot of things wrong. Even with the help

of technology.

How can you give theirs and not ours? They are pretty much the same incident. And I'm convinced Ederson on Iheanacho comes under excessive force too. 

 

That's probably four penalties we should've had in the past month not given.

Yet according to VAR and their interpretations, he only missed one.

The penalty at the Etihad where soyuncu arm was by his side! It’s beyond belief really

Oh lol

You said you don't want to hear about human error so took that as not using that as an excuse. My bad.
