Ridiculous offside decision

I’m far from a Liverpool fan but come on.

He was onside imo.

I can live with the offside decision. Swings and roundabouts.

What I cannot accept is Pickford's assault on VVD going unpunished. A potential carreer ending challange, which some morons on here seem more than happy about.

Whoever was on VAR duties for that decision needs disciplined.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
So what was your take on the elbow by Mane on Tierney?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
His elbow didn't make contact. It was his forearm.

It could and probably should have been a red.

The comparison is misleading. Pickford's challange could easily have long term consequences for Virgil. Mane's challange was a pretty standard occurance on a football pitched and was punished. Pickford didn't even get booked for a leg breaker.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
It was reckless but it wasn’t intentional. A bit likes Son’s on Gomes.
----------------------------------------------------------------------


That was deliberate. Horrible bloke

Please let me see if I've got this straight: Klopp wants the FA to review a couple of VAR decisions that he didn't like. But wasn't it a decision of the FA to implement VAR? So wouldn't that mean that VAR would be reviewing it's own decisions? Wasn't VAR introduced because it was superior to game officials on key game decisions?

And, if by some strange chance, VAR would decide that VAR had made a mistake, then what????

Mr. Klopp, have a good night's sleep.

Did you determine whether you had it right or not?

I suppose you decided you did.

Well you don't. Klopp has asked for an explanation of the decisions, not a review. Why was Pickford not sent off? How was Mane offside? Everybody knows the decisions can't be changed now so asking for a review would be pretty stupid but does of course make good headlines and incite debate amongst fools who can't use their own mind.

Ok! You want to play word games. I seriously doubt if Klopp would have said anything about VAR if the end of game "off-side" decision if it had gone his way. Your referring to everyone who disagrees with YOU as fools speaks to your character more than anyone else. As for your other complaints, they usually even out over the course of a season.

Pickford wasn’t sent off as he placed his hand on the floor to take the weight and reduce impact. It wasn’t his fault VVD leg twisted as it planted leading to a low energy challenge causing a horrible injury.


Hope it not ACL and just medial.

TOOR, what will explanation achieve?

Shall we all write to the FA for an explanation when there’s a bad decision? Hope you’ve got enough ink in the printer.

I actually have no issue with Liverpool writing to express their dissatisfaction, particularly if VVD is badly injured.

But your description above sounds absurd.

I think explanations of major decisions should always be available. That way we get to see why a ref made that decision, and how it applies to the law.

I think it would massively improve VAR of you mic up the ref and VAR and can hear their discussion and what they are checking and what they have seen. This is how it works in Rugby and it makes decisions far more transparent.

Welsh, I don’t disagree.

But that’s not what is happening here.

Liverpool have asked for an investigation, not an explanation. We all know the decision was wrong so there’s nothing to explain.

TOOR is just doing his usual of justifying something in his own head and then working from that basis.

Some people will see Liverpool’s request as sour grapes and they’re entitled to that view.

Personally, I think if VVD is badly injured then I’d be inclined to do what Liverpool have done. Although they presumably did it before they knew the extent of his injury.

Sure but i think the point for me is to find out why the wrong decision was made, which is the investigation, so that similar situations are not repeated in the future. Was it because the VAR didn't check the challenge and if they had seen it they would have recommended a review? Or was it that they did heck it and felt it was fine?

The end result will always be the same but it is just nice to know what happened and if the PL see it as an error or a fair interpretation.

I’d rather just call it a complaint than an investigation to be honest.

Liverpool would be entitled to complain.

If it were Sunday morning and VAR was somehow in play over the park... I’d be writing a complaint about the officials after that one, no question.
