The handball rule....not rocket science

I think if a Liverpool player kicks the ball and it hits an opponents arm it should be a penalty and if it hits a Liverpool players arm it shouldn't be a penalty.

Would make it simple to enforce.

Not always easy to determine whether it was on target though.

The solution was to leave it as it was. There was nothing wrong with it. Sure, you get some subjective and inconsistent decisions but I think we're quite clearly seeing it was the lesser of 2 evils.

The major rule change needed is to get some fecking referees that know how to referee. The standard of refs is appalling.

Let's be honest VAR is a cluster fack and they need to either address this handball rule or get rid of the thing.

Rival fans will say it will even itself out, will it fack.

It’s not VAR its the idiots behind it. VAR is a great tool. We cant really complain..it helped get us to the Champoins league final. My issue is the dumb illogical rules that are behind the technology.

Yeah so is it now a pen if a player kicks the ball at the arm of a player from his own side while clearing it from the box?

So I want to see us on Tuesday blasting the ball at Chelsea defenders Arms from a yard and see how many free kicks/penalties we can get.

Much as I wish it hadn't been given I thought the cl final one was a pen and Sissoko asked for it by standing there doing an impression of a one armed scarecrow. It was only when I watched it back I realised how long the idiot was stood there with his arm out.

However todays was scandalous Dier wasn't even facing the play.

You can’t really have it so that the ball has to be on target, what about crosses that could lead to goal scoring opportunities?

posted on 27/9/20

Had to be Dier again though. Did he really have to wave his hand like that? Another brain fart. Still fuming.

posted on 27/9/20

But we go again. Chelsea on Tuesday without Son . Be good to see more of Stevie B though. Every cloud..

I haven’t seen it myself, but in what way did he have his back to the ball? As a young defender I was mostly coached to always have your eye on the ball....

Jose gives Dier more chances than Dele and Rose. all should be in the same bucket.

I'm no Dier fan but he was astonishingly unlucky today.

But deciding if a handball is intentional is conjecture also. My point is, you can’t just award a penalty if the persons shooting at goal, you’re opening up another can of worms and creating fresh problems.

Trying to find some positives. We get to see more of Stevie B start in the Prem with Son out. Missed the last 20 mins but heard Ndombele had a nice little cameo on the radio.

Thought Winks played much better today. Hopefully todays result will make us hungry for Chelsea and Dele starts(and hopefully bangs one or two in).
