VAR

Still think 2 views and decide is fine. Taking 3 minutes plus is just crazy. However, if you still end up with VAR referees making weird decisions then no point having it especially as fans in the stadium can’t tell what is happening (unlike rugby)
 
Just taken 3 minutes and 20 seconds to disallow a Sheffield United goal for offside.

Both presenters for Sky thought it was a goal. “What has happened to the game” shouts Jeff Stelling.
 
The Sheffield United one is a farce. Contradicts a decision earlier in the season whereby the defence cleared and they still ruled it off, and it’s probably not even offside anyway as they used the wrong frame to check.
 
I don’t know if this has been mentioned elsewhere (can’t be bothered to scroll through the childish post match nonsense on the match thread) but I swear yedlin was offside and they never brought out the red and blues lines. No useful replay. VAR just said it was good and on we went

even if he was onside surely the checks have to be done consistently? All seemed a bit fishy to me

I'm not convinced he was onside either. I saw one camera angle that "showed he was", but the one thing that is impossible to tell, yet makes a major difference, is seeing when the ball was actually played forward

I posted this on the match thread, but it looked like the cross was deflected off of one of our players. So doesn’t that mean it doesn’t matter if he were offside? Since it came off our player?
