    what about the Liverpool penalty appeal where Firmino was held down with a free header on goal before the Southampton one. Both were stone wall in my opinion but you never mentioned that one for some reason.

    Why should I be upset the game I love is being stolen away from us by money men, criminals and bookies?

    You have to ask?

    ‘Both we’re stonewall buddy. You cant have both hands on a players shoulders pushing him down in the 6 yard box when there’s a free header. Ings got chopped twice so also a penalty.

    perhaps just trying to even it out so it doesn't look like the dippers have been helped to much so didn't give it , but when Southampton got through VAR went back to type ...shit we cant have the dippers losing its not allowed my the bosses, as once said we have a plan to have different winner every 6 years . This season its the dippers and VAR will make sure …..its simple really

    you can put your hands on another players shoulders when defending of course it depends on what team is defending

    In the games they've been gifted a goal when they've been struggling to get going, just imagine for a moment that the hadn't managed to score. Those games could so easily ended in a draw or even a defeat. Instead, they were gifted a goal and went on to win comfortably.

    There's a reason for that. The opposition know they've been mugged, and they know that no matter how hard they try they aren't going to win. I've seen that kind of mentality in our players ( Chelsea at home is a prime example).

    You can if you're the media proclaimed best defender in the world, VVD.

    Nothing gets past him because he has free license to be as physical as he likes.

    Its called game management from the officials.

    I know it as cheating.

    I'm not talking about the people who complain that VAR is shit. It absolutely is. And while it's made the game less enjoyable, I'll continue to watch as I still love the sporting contest of it all.

    I'm specifically referring to the "Football Is Fixed" believers who think the whole thing is rigged and results are pre-determined. If they genuinely believe that, why bother watching at all?
