    Every game they've struggled to break teams down in they have had a 'helping hand', either VAR or the referee awarding a freekick in a dangerous area.

    Ive not seen Liverpool’s game today and have absolutely no intention to but, I think your right - I don’t think it can be reasonably argued that the same rules have applied to everyone

    They’d have probably won the league anyway but what’s happened this season is clear and obvious as far as I’m concerned

    Liverpool have deservedly won the league and we have let our high standards slip but this discussion is about VAR and we have been robbed by it several times whilst they seemingly get the benefit of it every single time it actually matters and is needed.

    Sorry, you seem to have skirted around the bit about Scudamore’s comments. Be honest, it simply doesn’t add up does it?

    What doesnt add up?

    Utd, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal have a far bigger global fanbase than we do, especially in the markets the PL makes huge money from.

    Why is it then strange to you that the league would like those sides to do well?

    I think people miss the fact that some of the games we played 'sh*te' in that the match officials had an influence on the way we have played, not Just VAR, but 'traditional' methods of game management. Yes' we've missed many a chance in front of goal, and their is no excuse for that, but given a level playing field we would likely be at least level.

    You're wasting your time mate.

    You’re deliberately avoiding the question. Scudamore said it wasn’t in their interests for a team to dominate. Liverpool are dominating more this season than any team in history, yet you still think that the authorities are going out of their way to facilitate this. It doesn’t make any sense.

    We’ve won it more times than Arsenal and Liverpool and are one behind Chelsea. If you look at the last 10 years, since the takeover, we’ve won 4, Rags have won 3, Chelsea 3, Arsenal NONE, Liverpool NONE. Since 2012, it’s even more stark. (4, 1, 2, 0 and 0). This conspiracy is piss poor at delivering the ‘right’ result, that’s for sure.....

    Sometimes you just have to shake your head. Surely they don’t actually believe some of the stuff they’re coming out with? Imagine thinking that everything is that corrupt. Presumably you’d just the bin the game off altogether?!
