    cant see it getting any better either, trouble is do a poll with city fans on VAR and it would most likely be only 15% for it, do the same poll with Liverpool fans and it will be 95% for it,only way it will ever be dropped if there is a player strike however would Liverpool players strike never in this world

    I used to think that bent officiating would be far too complex and discounted the idea in my mind.

    I was probably overthinking it though.

    Ref is told before a game under no circumstances to award a penalty to X team. Just crack on with the game and we’ll have three blokes in a van work out the best excuse to gloss over any irregular decisions and if necessary pop a statement out to shut down any dissenters.

    Where possible we’ll also have the media toe the line.

    Now tally ho, brown envelope will be waiting for you in the car park afterwards if you do your bit!

    VAR is not the problem. Without it, we would have had the same corrupt decisions. The point is even when VAR shows an error, they choose to ignore it. As bad as the TAA handball was, the Salah offside was worse - after 4 mins ruling out Sheff Utd's goal, this one didnt appear to even be reviewed. Unfuckingbelievable

    also-you would think that to minimise controversy thhe guy doing the VAR check would be from an independent source ,not one of the inept feckers that its meant to help

    99% for Spurs,but it's not just about what teams get the luck,it is the system itself,flawed.

    Souness just come out with a cracker,he says when people say luck even's itself out over a season he disagreed and said it's over a career !

    So this new dawn we are now in has to go through a lot more time now if people believe chat like that.

    Load of bollocks
