Since when has the benefit of doubt gone to the attacker? Offside hasn’t changed. Level is level, offside is offside. There’s no spirit of the law for offside. It’s an is or isn’t decision.  

The law (before dotted lines) is that level is onside and if the assistant is unsure, that the benefit of any doubt goes to the attacker ...

Yes and if the VAR assistant is unsure when he assesses it then he gives onside - like the Jesus goal against us.

There is no such thing as unsure now ?   Those lines really can’t be on top of each other 100% ....... Jesus was clearly onside when the lines were shown freeze framed ....

Only by a toe - a close close call that when players have been shown to be clearly offside, people complain about it. If you want the benefit of doubt to go to the striker than stop using VAR otherwise we are talking about making offside now onside.

The issue being the point at which the ball is played in not reliable with the technology - that’s where this conversation has come from

We're way past the point where there should be an emergency meeting of the incompetent officials who have come up with the offside and offensive handball rules. So many good goals being disallowed by rigid unthinking application of ridiculous laws.

 

Need the final decision to be given back to the on field ref as well so all VAR can do for big decisions is refer them to the pitchside monitor for review.

 

Everywhere else it has been implemented it is a success so it's clear it is a problem with our rules and our sub-par officials.

I understood why they brought in the rule because technology needs as much clarity as possible but how can it be that a defender, with his arm, knocks it against an attacker's hand and one is penalised because of the position on the pitch and what it leads to?

 

Basically, neither player deliberately handballs it, the defender touched it more yet the attacker loses out.

A rule dreamt up by complete morons enforced by a system that makes brutalism seem joyful now only supported by people whose favourite position is missionary

Nah, someone who’s favourite position is missionary would be precise and correct with their decision making in a smugly confident way.

 

Var is dreamt up by a virgin who’s skimmed through the Kamasutra then tries to fumble through as many of the 64 positions as possible in his two minutes of premature humping.

Exactly. Touching the defenders hand first is not handball but touching the attackers hand after is? Is that the law? 

100% touched the defenders arm first.  100 x replays will show this. 

 

So why not a free kick to Leicester City at the minimum? How come they get a free kick?

 

VAR is a joke. Sick of the dam thing now, sick of it.

 

Oh and to prove this, WOLVES beat us 1-0 the other week.  Drawing to a good goal not given because a bloke was a nut sack off-side 25 yards away from the goal is a JOKE!

in these instances, VAR is only enforcing the laws of the game ...... it’s a reflection of poor planning by IFAB not to think that a situation like this couldn’t happen

VAR is ruining the game.  Whatever the armchair fan thinks or the "black and white" argument, its rapidly turned into game destroyer, not game enhancer.

 

I stand by my point. 

 

IMHO Wolves beat us 1-0 the other week and tonight it was our handball at the minimum for the disallowed goal.
