    Never a red, lucky if it was even a booking for Son. Spurs will likely win an appeal which means another VAR *-up, seems to be 2 or 3 big mistakes alone every week in the EPL. Firmino never looked offside in that goal yesterday either.

    That's down to the idiotic offside law, not VAR. And I'm sure the linesman flagged it anyway.

    Red card was ridiculous. Personally I think it was a yellow. He had, had a few decisions go against him and it was a swipe. Happens literally hundreds of times every weekend and is usually a yellow, but seldom a red.

    But he looks onside, just with the naked eye it doesn't even really look close to offside. I think they made a * of the lines and ruled it out wrongly.

    That line is never inline with Firminos shoulder it looks more like it wuld be in line with his chest

    I would say Firminos shoulder is probably more in line with that pink line, also the red line at Firmino isn't even straight its tilted towards firmino where as the blue line at the defender is straight.

    I think they rushed the lines and * them up.

    Even if you make another line at the exact angle of the line they have on the pitch, when you move it close to them it touches the guys knee before its anywhere near Firmino...

    Spurs are a shambles. Edit: VAR is an even bigger * shambles!

    You asking if it was offside mate or whether it was ruled out for offside ?

    That wasn't actually the phase of play where they scored as well (apparently) :56:

    * VAR.

    Fix the offside law for * sake. It's a shambles.

    Ruled out.

    Doesn’t look anywhere near offside in that still.

    I don't even think it's solely VAR it's the * arrogant as always English officials who've absolutely butchered it from day one.

    I’m watching it the now and it should never have been ruled out. Sheffield Utd should be 1-2 up.

    Looks like in that instance they have decided to draw the lines from the feet and ignored the defenders shoulders and head.

    Next week( or in other games today) they might decide to look at it a different way.

    The person who’s looked at that and decided it’s offside clearly isn’t up to the job or is a spurs fan.

    From what I’ve seen mate they are using it in a totally different way down there compared to on the continent. But I really don’t like it, the stoppages and breaking up of play are a riot.

    No watching it mate, however the guy on the BBC said the 3 and a half minute delay disallowing the goal just sucked all the atmosphere out of the game. I think it's crap,ruins the atmosphere and doesn't make the game any fairer.( I may have said this before :lenny1:)

    Chris Wilder is doing an absolutely fantastic job btw. As he did last season. It was no fluke they finished above Leeds last season. Towards the end of the season they put in a great committed performance at Elland Road.
