VAR

As we're unlikely to see terraces again at football, this is the virtual equivalent where you can chat to your hearts content about all football matters and, obviously, Arsenal in particular. This forum encourages all Gooners to visit and contribute so please keep it respectful, clean and topical.

FFS. Don't give them ideas. :lol:
Give it twenty minutes and those cûnts will have 200,000 signatures on a petition demanding a government inquiry, they'll be boycotting everything in the entire world and lighting fucking candles every two seconds. And probably murdering Juventus supporters, mugging their own fans, idolising racists and cashing dead men's giros. Because that's what they do.

Full on kick to the bollocks from Maguire to Batshuayi there. Cowardly and obviously deliberate.

Play on.

Even better - Chelsea goal disallowed because Fred pushed Azpilicueta into Williams. Couldn’t make this up.

Would be annoying if it wasn’t Chelsea getting shafted.

Would also be funny if it wasnt Man United benefiting.

Willian also booked for diving which looked harsh. VAR couldnt review it as it was outside the box.

Agree it was a definite red for MaGuire ... but he stays on and has just added a 2nd goal.

If Barry the mole was responsible for the still hilarious sight of Slippy G singlehandedly shitting on his own legacy and losing the league for the victims then Barry the fucking mole should get a Nobel prize for services to humanity. 8)

A few of my Scouse supporting mates reckon that Stevie G's slip didn't cost them the title, it was Brendan's tactics that day that pushed poor Stevie over

Well contrary to popular belief it would appear that TOF still has one brain cell rattling about upstairs. He is proposing to do the obvious and rewrite the offside law for next season so that an attacker is onside as long as any part of the body that he can score with ( :shock: ) is level with the defender. If we are lumbered with VAR then this is a step forward at least and will make the cu.nt referees in the PL put their slide rules away. No more offside armpits or big toes :roll:

:D

It would be an improvement but wont it instead be a case of the slide rule coming out to prove someone is onside instead of offside?

Maybe we should have kept Iwobi. Part of that massive backside would be onside at all times wherever he is on the pitch :roll:

Nah you can usually tell from the first look whether the players are level and that will take care of most decisions.

Fair point about old lardass - I guess there has to be some consolation to having him in your side but you are making an assumption as big as said ass that he would ever find himself one on one with the last defender :shock: .......he'd have to have gotten lost for that to happen :lol:

Yep exactly. It will just be swapping the farthest forward part of the body to the farthest back. So it would be his armpit is onside instead of his armpit is offside. Can't see any improvement gained from it myself.

Unless somebody has the nous to ditch VAR then this is still the better outcome from a wanky decision and we want goals. It will be far easier to see that a player is definitely onside from a first look at a call so I'll take that all day long over the current bs.
