It's there to get the league to the right ballpark where possible over the season, and then execute desired results in specific games.Oh and just to be clear, var is not used to shaft us and us alone. Remember last season when a rag player fouled a defender in the box and yet was given the penalty?
Var and pigmob were there to help the rags get a Champs League spot.
Many teams get shafted by var, mainly when playing the rags and dips.
Nick 3 points off City v Palace to keep us in check so we don't build momentum and run off? Done. Protect the Dippers v us and Chelsea so they don't suffer 2 home losses and drop too far behind too early? Done. Need Rags or Dippers in the CL in the last 8 games? Done.
Only way to mitigate is to go so above and beyond and be ruthless so they don't have chance in enough games to interfere. The last 4 games we've been deliberately interfered against, it's systematic at the moment to check our progress.
We're not ruthless enough to prevent it happening this season, unfortunately.
