    @Dougs he broke from a counter, was one on one with the whole half to himself, took too long to get the shot away, Romeo came flying in behind him. In real time it seemed inconceivable it couldnít not be a foul, but it was an incredible tackle.

    Nice. Mine was more a comment on flashscore's rubbish summaries!

    I picked up Bamford for fuck all in my fantasy league auction. Inspired pick. Shame the rest of my team is bobbins.

    This has very quickly turned from ďif we win this I donít know howĒ to ďif we donít win this I donít know howĒ.

    Iíll take that. Donít think it was a 3-0 over the 90, but a massive improvement second half.

    PPG home vs away, for this season and last - we'll never see anything like this again.

    Gah. Shame West Ham couldn't get even a point there. Super interesting season up until about January and after one month I just CBA to watch much more of it now. The race for the top 4 places just doesn't hold that much interest. Fair play to City, somehow they seem to be even more impervious than Liverpool were last season.

    Free kick for Brighton, Johnstone is lining his wall up, Brighton ask if they can take it quickly, Mason blows his whistle, Dunk shoots and just before it goes in the net, Mason blows his whistle to say they can't do that and have to re-take.

    He then gives the goal, but VAR tells him that because he blew his whistle a second timebefore the goal was scored, the free kick has to be retaken.

    This pitch is Spurs getting back at us for selling them Jack Clarke for £10m.

    Mason has had an absolute mare there. Itís obvious what happened, he blew for the kick to be taken before checking the goalie was ready. Mistakes happen although itís very poor, but whatís really embarrassing is them desperately using VAR to find some sort of infringement to get him out of trouble. Thatís really not what itís for.

    He looks like an absolute cock. The whole system - bar VAR itself - needs replacing. Scrap all the refs, get in younger and fitter ones - as well as those that can actually handle the situation. Telling a bunch of players to "stand the fuck over there while I make a decision" should be a basic requirement.

    It was a fuck up but it happens. VAR in its current state is in my view ruining football. Suggesting all refs need to be scrapped (I am unclear why) fixes nothing. The offside rules and VAR and how refs and assistant refs should be using the technology needs immediate review.

    Challenge system please before binning it all. Each team allowed to do 5 subs a game, and you lose a sub for each unsuccessful challenge.

    Thing I don't get is from albeit limited experience (watching Arsenal in the EL and some CL games) it doesn't seem to be the same clusterfuck in Europe. I also remember the World Cup it was used in being generally fine and being convinced by the end of it that it would improve the PL (because of the quality of refereeing, which is the common denominator here).

    Personally I think the refs do make too many mistakes, but it's because they are under too much pressure. I would massively clamp down on player behaviour. Just book any player who questions the ref except the Captain. Book a player for swearing. Book them for appealing anything, the ref isn't an umpire, they are a referee. Send off managers if they mouth off from the side lines. Just clean up the game and change the culture. It's only football where you can just harrass the officials without consequence.

    That should lower the temperature over time and give them space to decide on facts without the emotion from the teams. Then use var for clear and obvious errors and incidents that the ref didn't see.

    @Mark1412

    Honestly the Arsenal Benfica match last week I barely realised there was VAR.

    If it was like that maybe I would be on board with it.
