They were so sure that would be disallowed that the big screens said "decision: no goal"Why is everybody ignoring the most obvious evidence yet that something is rotten. Spurs' goal.
There's a clear handball by the scorer before he scores. All goals are, we're told, checked by the VAR. Goals given by the onfield ref have been disallowed by the VAR for handball this season. So, the principle has been established and the ref can be overruled on this. One goal was previously allowed to stand after an obvious handball by the scorer and Riley issued a statement confirming that the goal should not have been allowed to stand but the VAR did not see it. Yet the goal on Saturday was allowed to stand by the VAR.
Something stinks there and there's no getting away from it.
