    After this season is finished they should change the law to something more common sense but bot before IMO.

    Just have VAR show the evidence of the ball touching the arm. And use this disallowed goal as the baseline to judge everything else against.

    I don't want to see Liverpool for example benefiting from a change in the law or it's interpretation because they got it wrong in our case which cost us 2 points. Let them also suffer the same faith and perhaps the same points loss.

    2 points is nothing mate, there's 36 games to go.

    Keep it as it is, and we'll be losing more and more points IMO, whereas Liverpool's fouls will be conveniently ignored.

    Don't believe me? Watch this space.

    Referees should come out after games and explain their decisions, cos if Oliver comes out and says he saw the Rodri/lamela incident and there was not enough in it to warrant a penalty then he shouldn't be a premier league referee, if he says he didn't/couldn't see it then he should have asked for assistance, both ways it was poor refereeing. VAR will kill football as we know it.

    That is not the point,there are going to be plenty of tight games which VAR uses wrongly can decide

    I really can't wait until VAR fucks these ****s over. Let's see if Poch loves it then.

    Still stunned by how poor Ederson's positioning was for Spurs' first goal. Horrendous. He genuinely has no idea where his posts are.

    Agree that was not exactly his finest moment. He nearly got a hand to it and with better positioning would and should have saved that comfortably.

    To be fair to the bloke, he'd probably nodded off.

    and thats the bit that is unclear......if laporte had gained possession (ie the ball at his feet) and them slammed it home it would and should have been disallowed (I wonder what would have happened if he had headed it onto his own arm and it had done in (ie head to arm to goal without anyone else touching it) - agin probably righfully disallowed. However the team have gained possession and we have gained an advantage because of it (ie possession of the ball which doesnt go to Gabby possibly if the deflection off the arm doesnt happen)

    for me the defelction off the arm has given us possession and therefore a handball is part of the build up to the goal (and has a direct impact on it)....

    the law does need to be clarified...again it would be very difficult to tell whether GJ would have got the ball or not....it could be argued that the deflection off the arm made it eaiser to ontrol as it slowed the ball down but alternatively it could be argues that the deflection made it harder to control cause if Gabby had seen it coming anyway he would have had to readjust to take the deflection into account....
