Manchester United vs. Liverpool analysis: VAR strikes again | Premier League

  • Published on Oct 20, 2019
  • ESPN FC’s Craig Burley, Frank Leboeuf and Steve Nicol react to the use of VAR in Liverpool’s 1-1 draw vs. Manchester United. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp criticised the outcome of the VAR review on Marcus Rashford’s opening goal for Man United, which he says should have been overturned because of a “clear foul” on Divock Origi by Victor Lindelof.

    Bad refereeing and bad VAR operators are not a good combo.Any team playing against ManU.with Atkinson Refereeing and Mr Magoo doing Hawkeye are up against it .
    It works in any other sport far better than football.

    ffs how much do then guys get paid VAR cant overturn the goal as it was not a red card tackle (and they did look at it for that) , the only ones muddying the water is pundits not knowing the rules

    Martin "MAN UTD" Atkinson was the best player United had out there today, he controlled the game for them and did everything possible for them except score himself 👏👏👏👏👏

    By the laws of the game if you go through the back of someone, make contact with them and not the ball, that is a foul. So lets just clear that right up. And in that game Liverpool had 14 fouls given against them. 14! I am willing to bet any money that at least 4 of them had the same amount or even less contact than Origi's.
    So what does this say, well one of a few things.

    1. Atkinson had a serious bias in favour of United because 6 fouls v 14 is absolutely fucking ridiculous no matter what team it is against, and Young and Rojo should have been booked multiple times. Young in particular as their was one instance where he slid through the back of TAA and cleaned him out of it and never even got close to the ball.
    2. VAR is being maniupluated to aid a few people, be it bookies, the FA or anyone, because this season is being absolutely ruined thanks to idiot ref's and even bigger idiots behind the poxy screens and the only explanation for this level of stupidity on their behalf, is a few brown envelopes arriving at their doors.
    3. The rules are a shambolic mess and need to be ironed out big time. Craig said it as good as any pundit i have ever heard "This clear and obvious rhetoric needs to be stuck up where the sun dont shine.

      Did he even make fucking contact with Origi? It actually looked from most angles like he kicked between his legs. If there was contact, it was almost non-existent. Origi went

    The issue is Mark Riley, head of refereeing, doesn’t allow refs to go and look at the screen.

    Football changed. Footballers became athletes. Thus the game needed an extra ref & 2 extra linesman. VAR is overkill.

    No chance of the obvious foul on Origi being called, Atkinson on the pitch, Moss on the sideline and a junior ref at Stockley Park!

    do what they do in rugby. Have the conversations on audio and let the people who are reviewing the incident and let them make the decision. Its works there

    Did he even make fucking contact with Origi? It actually looked from most angles like he kicked between his legs. If there was contact, it was almost non-existent. Origi went down quicker than Alexis Texas on a Friday. Stop trying to suggest every bit of contact is a foul nowadays. You idiots need to learn people aren't made of glass

    We shouldn't have needed VAR to beat the worst ManU team in years. We just didn't turn up and made an absolute mockery of "Our Identity is Intensity". Loudest wake-up call against one of the poorest teams in the division at present. Need to bounce back pronto! YNWA

    THE VAR MATTERS NOW BECAUSE UNITED SCORED ON A FOUL. You all only wanted United to loose so you can have something to laugh about. But United was far superior over Liverpool. Give the credit when it’s deserved. You people sickens me to my stomach.

    If you watch the game the ref waved it on, therefore overruling VAR before they can get involved, the ref called it, all that above is just nonsense. Fact

      He kicked the back of his calf, ever played football, thought not, dickhead.

  • Entertainment Expresso

    Craig hate man utd so much that he want to call lindelof’s leg shoving origi’s thigh a foul. You guy must be blind not to see it all on those advanced technology in your studio. So blunt of you guys.🤯

  • mewe1771
    mewe1771 24 days ago

    Pundits talking nonsense. Just because there is contact does not make it a foul. Maybe 6ft 2 15 stone Origi stood stand up like a man rather than fall to ground like a bundle of washing because someone brushes his calf. Whilst rolling about on the floor he was holding the wrong leg...says was a clear dive, just like Mane's against Leicester...
