(BBC) "Why no VAR penalty?
Bournemouth 1-3 Man City

A bit more on that VAR decision not to award Manchester City a penalty after he appeared to be brought down by Jefferson Lerma a little earlier in the half.

The appeal was considered not to be a penalty by the on-field referee. As a matter of course, the VAR checked it. We understand that, because this was a subjective decision, the VAR deemed that there was not enough evidence to overturn the original call and so stuck with the on-field decision."

"Subjective?" They've certainly got it figured out.

Fans will surely warm further to VAR now that we've had this explained.
Basically what we said it will be used for, to manipulate results

Not enough evidence ? You mean the lack of video showing Dave's foot being stood on ?
Yep it’s fucking useless
