    Of course it will...if that came off van dykes arm today and salah slotted it in they'll be celebrating 3pts....if Pogba gets wrestled to the floor at the swamp then var will kick in and they'll get a penalty. Keep watching coz it'll fuckin happen sooner rather than later mark my words.

    There will be a time this season where the Dippers will get a penalty because 'there was contact', and City won't get a penalty because 'there wasn't enough contact'.

    There will still be an anonymous referee making a decision, and it will still be subjective, and there will still be no recompense for an incorrect decision, and we will still get shafted and it will still be corrupt.

    Dammit, just watched MOTD.

    Final take away on this arm drag back, is everyone is confusing when it came(twitter for you).

    There were two phases. The drag back comes from his starting position as he sets off to meet the ball. It was a clear as day drag on the arm though to stay with his man. There was contact when the ball arrives but that is just normal bracing/feeling.

    So it didn't directly lead to the handball and makes the claim a little weaker but it's still there. The point is they owed us one and that was an opportunity to make it right, while applying the letter of the law. A generous one to make up for missing a stonewall one in the first half.

    Before any Spurs fans make the comparison, this was not the same as jostling for position(normal), as someone claimed for the Llortente incident last season. For simply bracing against him, with the only hint of a push after the ball was already goal bound(seen all the time on corners too). Plus you weren't denied a stonewall pen before it and thus were owed nothing.

    Taking it one game at a time
    VAR is a farce. The new handball rule goes too far.

    City still aren't clinical enough.

    Defending was not good enough on their goals; especially from Eddie on the first.

    The good news: most of our game was superb considering that preparation wise we are still in preseason.

    Looking for the orange one
    Despite all the VAR bollocks I thought we played really well today and were clearly the much better side.

    Rodri had a really good game and is starting to look the part.

    KDB was excellent before tiring.

    We need to stop missing so many chances. It allows VAR to impact the result. We had pure chances to wrap
    It up today but didn’t take them.

    I’ve seen enough to know any **** wanting this league will need to finish above us.

    Played well in spells, looked vulnerable at set pieces without vinny, they only had a few but just that little more nervy without him.

    On a side note ! How bad was Mahrez when he came on. 3 or 4 give aways. 10 backward passes, then added to that, he just walks about. Not a fan of him.

    Onto the next
