Premier League 2020/21 Thread

Why is this particular decision being bemoaned more than the million similar ones last season? Just because the one angle we saw made Mane look level? 

 

Unless its an incorrect drawing of lines or technology failure, then that's a separate (worse) issue.

If the freeze is consistent across every single check then that’s ok but how would you do that ??. 

You can't. You'd have to take frames per second and relative speed of movement between the defender and attacker into account - let alone when you determine the pass as being made. It's crazy - this wasn't how VAR was sold to us.. Today it has missed a clear and obvious red card and given 2 barely detectable offside decisions.

It is Liverpool on BT Sport. They'll always make a bigger deal out of it.

 

Their meltdown is glorious.

Genuinely think they should have markers in their gps vests (That they use for tracking movement anyway) and a set distance inputted to go off for offsides to avoid the issue of arms/legs etc. Will still be close calls but if you can input the same distance, it could be a fairer system.

Lol what? Wider? That’s the opposite of what I want. Those lines should be razor thin.

Don't see how razor thin stops the 'games gone' brigade. If anything it exacerbates the problem - the mirage of technical perfection which can't happen when the technology is controlled by humans. 

 

If the lines were a fair bit thicker (the equivalent a football's width seems too wide, but along those lines) the rule could change such that if the lines overlapped it wasn't offside

Personally I don't think we even need lines. We just have to be sensible about it. They should just freeze frame, look and if it looks off then it's off, if it's too close then give the attacking player the benefit of the doubt. The problem has always been MOTD, or live TV get camera angles and people would see (without these lines) that the linesperson made a clear mistake and constantly moan about it. They weren't getting these rulers out and defining it to the slightest of millimetre, the mistakes would be a foot off and so clearly wrong. The problem it strikes me is that the people who make the rules want to remove ALL element of subjective ruling. It's why we saw that stupid handball rule last season.

  • They always use the first frame in which the ball has left the foot. In this case it is always consistent. 
  • The lines are drawn in 3D space using multiple camera angles, we only see from the one angle they choose to show us. 
  • Offside is offside. 

What pees me off more is the interpretation type VAR's i.e. dives, hand balls, red cards where it is still down to a bloke making crap (IMO) decisions!

It's amazing how much difference it can make to a players confidence to not have his own fans booing him every week. He's always been a good player with fantastic potential but our fans are just toxic sometimes

Yep. Sometimes fans don't exactly help. Listen to Lampard talk about his time at West Ham, it's mental to think their fans pushed him out.

As if grown men would boo and hound a talented you footballer who is still improving during their time at a less fancied club?!

Have zero interest in what Chilwell does at Chelsea. He's moved on, he's just another opposition player now. But it is interesting to note that he was withdrawn from the England squad with "an injury" and yet less than 3 days later is starting for Chelsea and setting up a goal. We clearly need to start pulling the same kind of trick to protect our players.

Seeing pundits and ex pros slag it off is even more enraging, given that they’re the ****ing ones who wanted it to begin with 

I think its causing a lot more controversy than when it wasn't around, without VAR you would maybe have 1 or 2 incidents in a game which anger the fans at most VAR is just creating more problem situations for no reason.  BIN IT

Oh I do. Its great seeing that most of FT was wrong about something (and very vocally so) - although it is early days.

 

Agree on the England point although players probably more bothered if they're not first choice in England team already.

Totally agree. Im still.amazed man city didn't make a.move for him to replace that absolute tool (in relative terms) Mendy and the sub sub par Zinchenko

Leg bends back, similar to Zouma and Ibra?

 

 

Seems we’ve lost any balance between protecting the keeper and protecting the attacker.

 

Can you imagine when Ederson sees that Pickford got away with that?  He’s going to be the most dangerous unarmed man in England.
