@dan lcfc you are aware this isn’t 2007 and the handball rules have changed? 

You can say you despise the rule but you can’t say it wasnt a penalty under the current rule. Also VAR was correct because it instructed the ref to give the pen under the current rule. 

Done and dusted.

I don’t understand why the footballing authorities insist on making their lives difficult with regards to handball penalties. Just make it any handball is a penalty and avoid any contention. 

Trouble is they would then be arguing about which part of the arm is the hand then!! It's fine if they are consistent, trouble is they generally aren't.

It's not VAR's issue though? 

 

Both penalties, technically, have been correct. The laws instruct them to give the first one.

It is. This culture of absolutely absurd scrutiny has led to people collectively thinking that first one is a penalty. It's been blasted at him from about 5 yards away. Slow motion replays have totally distorted everyone's minds.

 

The rules have been changed to accomodate VAR. Therefore it's the fault of the introduction of VAR. By the letter of the absolutely silly laws - yes it's a penalty, but I can't get on board with this shambles at all and never will.

There not much hope if we can’t determine what counts as an arm.

Completely agree. There was nothing wrong with the handball rules two years ago. They had to change it to stop the ball going in off an arm counting, but then they added all this new nonsense which has ruined it and confused fans and players alike.
