Never To Be Repeated

Thanks to VAR, scenes like this will never be repeated for any club.

No longer can you enjoy that spontaneous moment of joy when your team scores a goal.

You looked at the linesman, you looked at the referee, if they signaled a goal.

It was a GOAL.

Of course there was the odd mistake, but life is about mistakes as well as success.

What were Martin Tyler’s words in the commentary?

“I swear you’ll never see anything like this ever again! So watch it! Drink it in! Stupendous!”

So don’t know why you’re getting your keks in a twist and blaming VAR.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
As I was at the game, I didn't hear Tyler's commentary so I don't see the relevance of that comment.

As I didn't film myself during those final moments, I selected a video clip that reflected my emotions on that day.

Anyone who doesn't get the point of this thread has obviously never been to a live football match.

It was repeated as the Etihad last season. Pep was celebrating like he won the CL until Var gave Aguero offside
----------------------------------------------------------------------

That’s the point! Was horrible going off when we scored only to get it chalked off moments after. That’s a regular feeling at games now and I’m not into it!

Your point was it won’t be repeated. You’re just plagiarising Martin Tyler’s words.

Prefer not to have referee errors in the game. They don’t balance out over the course of the season.

Good, goal hangers like Sterling getting found out

Goal Hangers?

I didn't realise we'd gone back to the Gary Lineker era.

Maybe you’ve not noticed who is on top of the league and champions of Europe.

The point is, is that anyone who's been to a game where a dramatic winner has been scored will recognise that feeling of elation.

Having to wait 2 minutes for VAR to check it saps all the joy.

You genuinely think if the same circumstances happened but with VAR the crowd wouldn't go just as mental?

Only difference would be the tense minute when the goal is checked before getting to celebrate a second time when it's given.

That process is the problem I think though. Obviously goals have been ruled out before, but not as often and it really takes something away from the experience

You've obviously never been to a game where a goal has been ruled out by VAR.

Of course people jump up, it's a natural reaction but when you then sit there for 2/3 minutes waiting for a decison it's a bit of a mood killer.

I'm sure people that watch footy on TV don't realise that the people in the stadium don't see all the replays or hear any of the analysis that TV viewers get and that's what's killing the game as a spectator sport.
