    It makes you think what was the ref and linesman were looking at when they missed two fouls in the penalty area.

    Mic the referee up to a ref with video in the stand. I am sure UEFA said it is coming.

    To an extent I think we are on the harsh end because the main man involved is Sterling and he goes at such a speed it is difficult to spot. No excuse for the Sterling/Milner incident though.

    To an extent I think this gets exaggerated in our minds because we live with Man Utd who are the biggest beneficiaries. About a fortnight ago there was a stats analysis of pens awarded against top 6 teams at home and they were all pretty similar with one exception. Man Utd were the only team that had a statistical significant difference in the number of penalties awarded against them at home. And then we have the incidents with violent conduct where Rojo and Ibrahimovic can do almost anything without penalty. Ibra's suspended now, but he really pushed it to the limit

    There's talk of it being trialled in FA Cup next season. Not sure if it's confirmed yet

    It has to.... too much money at stake for these errors.... hoping it will come at the start of next season with managers allowed a certain number of challenges... which are un-used of their complaint is upheld...

    Sad that we need these things but the technology is there so let's use it... works in Rugby, works in Tennis, we 100% need in our game

    Never understood why referees are not microphoned up to the TV broadcasters so we can understand the decisions made there and then. I can only conclude they don't to protect collusion.

    Nope, I'm the same, surprised they didn't find a reason yesterday to be honest.
