I'm pulling for Liverpool too mostly for the same reason. I don't have much reason to dislike Liverpool; I just don't actively support them. I do disdain Real Madrid so it's an easy call. I wish City hadn't made that late comeback Sunday so that this could be for a historic quadruple. Oh well; it's still going to be a big match.CL final coming up! Pulling for Liverpool only because of the EPL connection. Not a fan of either team.
Went ahead and changed this thread to 22/23 given the domestic league seasons are finished.
And that is my issue with VAR. It is so inconsistently applied. The VAR official will miss things like this and then turn around and spend 10 minutes hyperanalyzing to disallow a goal because the striker's nosehair is offside.Nottingham Forest won in highly controversial fashion. You'll ready that 2 penalties in the 2nd half should have been called to give Huddersfield a chance to tie and take a lead. IMO, only one was a penalty, but even VAR didn't award it.
Also, Horvath played the last 10 minutes or so after the starting keeper for Forest took a knock and couldn't continue. Really happy for Forest.
I'm good with it bc I wanted Forest to win, but that should have been a penalty. The other one I don't think should have been a penalty but Taylor Twellman, in his infinite imbecility and hyperventilating way wouldn't get off of it. I agree about the VAR delays on offsides calls. If it's not completely obvious it shouldn't disallow a goal. But I think VAR is a net positive bc, while this was missed, it still corrects countless other egregious misses that can decide games.And that is my issue with VAR. It is so inconsistently applied.
