    I've watched it about 50 times, and what bothers me most is the lack of any mention of the grab on Laporte's arm by the defender a second or so before the handball. The ball ricochets between Laporte and the defender. The change of direction of the ball suggests it hit Laporte's arm, but equally it also appears to have hit the defender's arm. Like you say, the grab was surely a pen, but the pen should be overridden because we scored despite being fouled. Suspend VAR and only bring it back when it's as absolute and instant as goal-line technology.

    This deserves better than a like. Sums it up perfectly. We'll never be able to celebrate properly, its natural to be guarded when you've been kicked in the stomach one too many times.

    I tend to keep very quiet on here and rely on Mrs Bluepants to keep me up to speed - lazy, I know! However, I wanted to stick my five eggs in as I feel sick to my stomach about recent events. I'm not going to hurt the club I support by flouncing off in a huff, especially having spent the last 10 or 11 years travelling from where we used to live near Bournemouth to every home game (I moved to Cheshire in November 2018) and during that time have seen City become one of the world's greatest football teams. Absolutely no way. I don't hold out any hope that City will not suffer from all kinds of bias during the forthcoming season but I really fear that VAR could actually precipitate a riot. What I would like to do is humbly make the following suggestions to offset the utterly negative impact of VAR which, worryingly, has forcibly manifested itself after only the first two games of the season - I apologise if I am repeating what may have already been said: (1) change the offside rule, (2) change the handball rule, (3) as soon as VAR kicks in, sound a fkin loud siren or klaxon so the paying punters get an immediate warning of what's happening.

    Does anyone think VAR is ruining the game?

    I watched a Bein video the week after the West Ham game mate (on youtube) Andy Gray said the var technology runs at 25 fps.

    I agree, I think we are in a dangerous situation where the var official can see what he wants, without any comeback. The non penalty being a prime example as well.

    I haven't really watched the disallowed goal back as I'm still too pissed off to watch it tbh.

    25 or 50 frames per second isn't enough mate. Sane was clocked at 22mph last season which equates to 10 metres per second.

    If FIFA say offside is triggered when the player making the pass first touches the ball, & the time it takes a player to kick a ball averages 0.055 seconds, that means in the time it takes to make a pass, Leroy would have covered more than 5 metres.

    VAR doesn't account for this which is why this element of VAR needs to be suspended & returned to the ref & his assistants, until a better mechanism is found.

    At 50 frames per second, huge amounts of movement by a flying player will be missed. The absolute minimum which should be used is 960 fps. Obviously TV can't handle all that data for broadcast, but specialist VAR cameras fed by fibre optic lines straight to Stockley House is more than possible.

    This is the difference 960 fps could make when looking closely at offsides & penalty area handballs. No bullshit blurry images, or AI making best guesses.

    TV and Movie frequency's, we are talking Sky TV here, the vertical frequency of television was set before colour TV came out.









    Having said that they would change the TV system in the UK and Europe for the Candleholders and Rag twats

    Can’t change the rules this season, as it would be unfair to those teams already affected by VAR, including game changing goals.
