It's not the same though. Every penalty is only given after it's confirmed to have been a foul. That's the whole point. There can't be any justification for not checking whether it's a foul because that's what happens with every penalty decision. A penalty can't be given unless it's confirmed that a foul has been made surely? 

They probably just backed Dean, saying it wasn't an obvious error, or whatever.

See the McGuire foul that VAR missed today, Crazy. He actually had the Chelsea lad in a flying headlock.

 

Something gotta be wrong in the game if a Liverpool fan is complaining that Chelsea didn't get a penalty.

No, have a crack at VAR and there's no such thing as the wrong thread.

Three points is all that matters, won't even remember this game in a month's time. 

Be nice to have the odd easy game, every match puts us through the wringer.

 

Other than not being a foul, and also outside the area the penalty decision was a fine one. Before we get too far into conspiracy theories though I should say  that the Jota one looked a stonewaller and I have seen worse handball decisions than Robbo's given this season.

The refereeing was terrible. They basically turned a blind eye after they screwed us.

I have. Still think it’s waffle. Regards.

 

In more interesting news MotD saying match officials are now saying they did review weather Fab’s tackle was a foul or not.

Yep,the stuff that was allowed before the cards were dished out was shocking. What a bunch of grocks they were.

They don't have any choice because any penalty decision has to be checked as to whether it's a foul. You can't say, "We only checked whether it was inside or outside the box". But there was a tweet earlier on here that suggested that they only checked the location of the foul, wasn't there? I'd love to know the source of that because it's an absolutely ridiculous statement to make if it came from VAR itself. It's become such a farce that nothing would surprise me though.

We were champions last year from winning countless tight games that usually ended with a 1 goal margin.

 

We haven’t got Virg but we’ve got a shitload of world class players all over the park and the rest of league are all over the place.

I made the mistake of checking Twitter this morning, and a lot of chat about Jota could’ve given away a “stonewall” pen. I for the life of me can’t think of which incident that might have been.

Tough, gutsy display as we struggle for a bit of consistent form. The midfield two didn't work as they were picking up the second ball while we had four forwards well away from the action. 

Gomez had a good game except when meeting the bombardment from their keeper. We needed another body challenging for the second ball and someone else doing a Lucas stepping back into the forward. We got better at dealing with this in the second half as Hendo and Gini got more into the game.

One on Berge, Davie Provan thought it was a penalty too. I don't think there was contact myself but the angle wasn't great. Berge didn't even appeal for it either, which makes me think it wasn't. Robbo's handball could easily have been given and, on another day, might have been. It just goes to show though - you look at opposition supporters' views of the game and it's all like "Liverpool won because of VAR", etc, and then on here the view is completely the opposite.

Ah that one, yeah don’t think Jota touched him... and Berge just crumbled. Yeah I think we got lucky with the Robbo handball. I can’t see how that’s not a pen yet the Eric Dier one from the start of the season was.. not that I’m complaining.

Three points and that's all that can be said for our performance really.

 

Would have been more comfortable without the VAR cuntery, but lets face it, we didn't look like champions.

Er, what?! That's the type of performance that saw united and chelsea grind out numerous titles. Not always pretty, sometimes under the cosh the whole game but coming away with 3 points.

    • Yes, couldn't name John Mclaughlin. 
    • I might be completely off here but I always got the impression Lampard and Terry didn’t really like Mourinho in a similar way Carragher and Gerrard didn’t particularly like Benitez probably because it’s a lot harder to enjoy playing for negative shithouse managers.  The difference between the two situations was that there were plenty of rumours of Carragher and Gerrard not liking him in their playing days and playing a part in getting him out but since they’ve retired they’ve been up his arse. There was never anything like that at Chelsea but you get the feeling since Lampard and Terry retired that neither are or were particularly found of Mourinho and don’t speak to him either.

Liverpool fans may agree with their captain when you look at the stats. Jurgen Klopp’s side have had more goals disallowed by VAR than any other Premier League team in the 2020-21 season so far. The poll shows just 28% of Liverpool fans believe VAR is being applied consistently, as do 31% of Manchester United fans, compared to 39% of Arsenal and Chelsea fans. And just a quarter of Liverpool fans feel VAR has made football more exciting.  The FA Cup third-round tie between Brighton and Crystal Palace on 8 January 2018 was the first domestic game to use VAR, and it was subsequently used in one Carabao Cup semi-final and the Carabao Cup final between Arsenal and Manchester City. The Premier League introduced the technology for the 2019-20 season. In July of this year, Fifa took full control of VAR from the sport’s lawmakers, the International Football Association Board (Ifab). Since then, there has been an increase in referees using pitch-side monitors for goals, red cards and penalty decisions. VAR continues to rule on factual decisions and advise on matters of subjectivity. Premier League fans still to be convinced Scottish football authorities have discussed introducing VAR, but the technology has not yet been used in professional league football there. VAR was introduced in the German Bundesliga and Italy’s Serie A in 2017 and Spain’s top flight La Liga and the French Ligue 1 in 2018. As with those European leagues, changes have been made in England to try to adapt and improve the system. But the poll showed more than half (51%) of Premier League fans feel VAR is applied inconsistently. However, Premier League chief executive Richard Masters said earlier this year that VAR was delivering on the “principal reason” for its introduction in improving the accuracy of decision-making. “In key match incidents we are up to 94% accuracy with officials, 97% with their assistants, so we are seeing an impact on results and a positive impact on the league table,” he said. What they say about VAR Former Manchester United defender and Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville: “[Referees] look like they have been programmed like robots. They are briefed like mad, they are programmed to the nth degree, they are frightened to death.” Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho: “We’re going in a direction that’s really bad for the beautiful game, the game that everybody fell in love with.” Former Tottenham and Newcastle midfielder and Match of the Day pundit Jermaine Jenas: “The players and managers have been unbelievable in mentally getting over these hurdles that VAR has thrown at them. It’s supposed to help the game, and it’s making it far worse.” Savanta ComRes interviewed 5,476 UK adults aged 18+ online between 20 and 24 November 2020, 2,100 of whom qualified as football fans for the purpose of our survey according to Savanta-gathered data on football fans and their demographic profile. Data were weighted to be demographically representative of UK adults 18+ by age, gender, region and social grade. Savanta ComRes is a member of the British Polling Council and abides by its rules. The full poll is published here       “I’d rather play without it.” “Ruining the game.” “I don’t know the rules any more.” The video assistant referee (VAR) was brought in to improve football. But Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson, Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish and Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne have all spoken out about controversial decisions made by VAR recently. And it seems football fans are also less than convinced by VAR in its second full season in use in English football. In a poll for BBC Sport, only a third of football fans across the UK said they believe VAR has made football better. The poll of 2,100 fans, carried out by Savanta ComRes, shows that while 30% of fans think it has improved the game, 44% of fans actually think it hasmade football worse. While most fans are now given the option of seeing VAR decisions on screen – whether in the stadium on watching on TV – almost half of fans said they believe the introduction of VAR has made football less exciting. The poll also shows: 36% of supporters aged 18-34 believe VAR has made football better, compared with 29% of fans aged 55 and over. 59% of fans aged 55 and over said VAR is making football worse. Arsenal fans (44%) are more likely to believe that VAR has made football better, while 37% of Chelsea fans, 34% of Liverpool fans and 32% of Manchester United fans felt it had improved the game. Younger fans are split on whether VAR is being applied consistently (35%) or inconsistently (33%) by referees. Controversial VAR decisions West Ham v Aston Villa, 30 November – Villa manager Dean Smith said VAR “frustrates everyone but there’s nothing we can do about it” after Ollie Watkins’ late strike was ruled out for offside because of the position of his arm  Manchester United v West Brom, 21 November – “I’m very disappointed with the decisions from the referee,” said Baggies manager Slaven Bilic after referee David Coote reversed a penalty decision, ruling Bruno Fernandes had touched the ball in a challenge on Conor Gallagher Crystal Palace v Leeds United, 7 November – Patrick Bamford said VAR is “ruining football” after his equaliser for Leeds is ruled out because his outstretched, pointing arm is offside Everton v Liverpool, 17 October – Reds manager Jurgen Klopp said he “doesn’t understand these decisions” after VAR fails to review a challenge from Jordan Pickford that injured Virgil van Dijk, while Jordan Henderson’s late goal was ruled out for offside against Sadio Mane

That's right, she gets in the car and I go "Hi Rihanna, it's lashing down out there. Did you not bring an umbrella-ella-ella-eh-eh-eh"   Rihanna laughed a little awkwardly while Adrianna sat there and fumed. I have no regrets.'     And nor should you have, it's what any self-respecting dad would do.
