    wondering where it all went wrong
    A driving force behind Var was the wrestling that goes on,unpunished, in the penalty area.When it is highlighted by tv it brings the game into disrepute. The situation is "only after a goal is scored is Var employed", yet we were led to believe that "all incidents are scrutinised". Obviously that is bollox.
    Once again pgmol have been shown to be incapable of being fit to administer the game, just amateurish knee-jerk responses that have made matters worse, let alone laying themselves open to "favouritism". Without the media on side, the situation will not change, but the media have their own agenda so fans are left with forums on social media to vent their dissatisfaction. Not good enough, the game deserves better and so do we...Until accountability is forced on the adminastrators its SNAFU......

    a player gains control/possession of the ball after it has touches their hand/arm and then scores, or creates a goal-scoring opportunity

    But surely he never gained control of the ball so whether it went on to create a goal-scoring opportunity is irrelevant?

    I disagree there, I think the important bit is where it says 'a player gains control/possession of the ball after it has touches their hand/arm and then scores, or creates a goal-scoring opportunity'.
    With the ball only glancing off Laporte's arm at no point did he have control or possession of the ball so there was no way he could do anything involving an 'and then'.
    The rule is written to prevent occasions where a ball accidentally hits a players arm and the ball either drops to the players feet or is diverted towards a teammate. A ball brushing a players arm does not constitute 'control or possesion'.

    Another fair and balanced summary of the game. We can rage all we want - and with justification - at VAR but missed chances, bad defending and some poor decision making when in good positions to hurt Spurs ultimately cost us the three points.

    Not sure how anyone without an agenda can say it wasn’t a foul on Rodri. Incomprehensible that anyone looking at that can say no foul. Can only draw the conclusion that someone is bent

    Spot on. Either the law needs rewriting or it was incorrectly, maybe on purpose, interpreted yesterday. Same with the Wolves goal last week as Boly didn’t gain possession or control of the ball.

    If City can maintain that level over 38 PL games we will win the PL VAR or no VAR.

    Where's the pic of Rodri being strangled? Has it been removed in case it offends VAR Officials?
