Anyone seen anybody having a go at auguero for touching the lino? Seen piers Morgan saying it should be a red hahahahaha

Not sure it’s a red, but some action should be taken. Players simply can not touch the match officials.

I’m not one to agree with Piers too often but don’t think he’s wrong. I guess it’s a culture thing. In any American sport that’s an ejection. The swarming of the ref after every call has always been one of the more jarring things about soccer to me. Should be a yellow. The time wasting may be the most annoying part of it. 

 

Would he have put his arm around the linesman in that situation if it were a man?  I don’t think so. It’s kinda creepy.

It doesn’t matter that it’s a foul in your opinion (or even the ref if he looked at it again) 

the ref didn’t give it 

so unless he has made a huge mistake not to give it then the on field decision stays as it is 

100/100 people have to think that it’s a pen for it to be a clear and obvious error 

It wasn’t one of those 

 

VAR is not supposed to ‘re referee ‘ the game 

 

it’s there to correct clear errors re pens/goals and to judge if a goal is valid or if a sending off should/shouldn’t happen 

 

Don’t disagree with anything you said. I’m just saying once they identify that play and start looking at it, there was only going to be one outcome. 

 

I really think a challenge system is the way to go. It would solve a lot of the biggest current problems with VAR

VVD might be out for the rest of the season. That may mean they will give Pickford a retrospective ban. The VAR admitted he didn't look at Pickford's challenge, so it would be within the PGMOL rules for a retrospective ban.

 

Personally I think it is about time goalkeepers were no longer allowed to assault other players. I am old enough to remember Harald Schumacher on Battiston in the 1982 WC semi final - you'd think that would have been a watershed moment. But no. As we know from Ederson on Iheanacho. What's it going to take before this is dealt with?

Goodness me, a couple of decisions go against them and the world has ended. 

 

The big clubs having controversial, crucial calls not in their favour and the ensuing meltdown is thoroughly enjoyable. Especially in a week where they believe they should run the game.

 

Plenty of stuff on social media of Liverpool fans "classily" wishing injury on opponents in the past and singing about broken legs. Quelle surprise.

Good for the rest of the league, hopefully more comical results like the 1-6 v Spurs to come lol

i think it's hilarious. it's like he'll never get sacked but still give them a tiny glimmer of hope. he needs to be sacked, similar with southgate at england. 2 managers way out of their depth

Sometimes it takes shit decisions going against one of the Big Clubs to change the shit show we currently have. I won't weep if the use of VAR gets binned.

The only way there is any punishment is if the report states it wasn't looked at. It's been suggested thats then case but we'll never properly know what happened. State of the injury means nothing also, look at Gomes last season. Aurier caused that injury and got nothing

VAR isn't the issue, the people using it are.

Given their appalling behaviour this week in trying to rip off the Premier League, hopefully they'll be told to **** off.

 

Will they ask why Robertson wasn't sent off for his challenge on Allan?

I feel sorry for Van Dijk but what a bunch of self entitled cvnts.
