It’s the rules bro. Don’t like it though, but that’s how it is...
You can’t have 99% onside...



Offside that you require a microscope to see?


That’s what video review is about.

Let me be clear, I can understand the frustration. Felt the same on Firmino’s disallowed goal and Manes, but it’s about the rules of the game not VAR.


It is about stupid human application of the VAR. The refs will wave off penalty claims as not clear and obvious but will chuck off perfectly score goals over not clear and obvious offside.

What if VAR technology allowed a hair strand to be measured for offside position? Is it still a valid offside if your hair is in an offside position?

The purpose of the offside rule is to stop attacking teams from getting an unfair advantage on the defense in a race towards a ball behind their lines. Its not meant as a measuring rule where you use a microscopic ruler even for cases where there is clearly no advantage.

VAR has its moments, but the EPL application of VAR for offside needs to change ASAP

I unfortunately agree, this travesty has to continue till seasons end for fairness sake.

If only this was 1-1 as it should be.

Wolves very impressive, well drilled. Liverpool the look of champions, unbeaten throughout the campaign. Poor performance today and yet, 3 points on the board.

It’s about the offsides rule not VAR or its application.

To some of my CE brothers criticising the guy, there's more than one way to skin a cat. I beg, not everybody go look like Raheem Sterling or Eden Hazard. End product matters. Defenders fear the bobo, no be small. We can REALLY do with someone like Adama Traore right now at Arsenal.

@GWG, on the contrary, a speed demon on the flank would be squandered by Beloved. Not nearly good enough on the counter and far from the necessary directness.

I would rather describe it as a tired performance, not a poor one...

Liverpool XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Keita, Mane, Salah, Firmino

Subs: Adrian, Milner, Lallana, Origi, Phillips, Jones, Elliott


Expected line up. Sheffield will bring their usual toughness. Strong in the middle and defense. Need to be patient. We go again RedMen! YNWA....

I expect an improvement from the Wolves game. Bench is a bit thin.

Young bench. Well Origi and Lallana will probably come in before the young ones. Hope Naby not serious. I was hoping he would be the difference in midfield

Marathon staying powers from Liverpool, how many of their line-up were rested during the meat of the season? Surely an -ov in suffix from a WADA investigation.
