Got to feel for Ralph Hasenhüttl..
His whole game plan ruined in 3 minutes!
Was unlucky to have that goal disallowed too.. Ridiculous VAR decision. Seriously!
Manchester United took advantage of 10 men tonight and produced a good performance. Well played.
Still think Manchester City will win it[premiership] by a canter...

Yes as a United fan, well played against an under strength team. I also think City will win league, not sure about ‘at a canter” though.United are still a player or 2 short to be consistent challengers.
Personally I think a minutes silence for Captain Tom should have taken preference over the Kneeling tonight. Removed

Unfortunately, its the law that if a player doesn't play the ball then a direct red card should be shown when a player is through. He was better off playing the ball would've got a yellow. Same thing with David Luiz red card im sure match of the day will mention it. Hope that helps

First red was fine - tough to give it that early but if you can get away with anything in the first few minutes then there will be dangerous play in the first few minutes.

The second red was textbook double jeopardy and should be rescinded, but it's not like it meant anything by then except increasing the chance of another 9-0.

First sending off was harsh as it was the second minute of the game for a young player who got his timing and positioning wrong in the middle of the field. I could not say it was clearly wrong but I would have given yellow.
Foul on Cavani on the line was a clear penalty.
Goal by Adams was onside.
Martial was going down before he was touched so no penalty or red card.

How can you win 9-0 but the ref gave them a helping hand?

You need to give your head a wobble.

We should have been 5-0 up in the first half, but had a clear penalty degraded to a free kick and had the ref played on Greenwood was through in goal!!! Where is the helping hand then?

Cavani looked like he was on the line, so that should have been a pen. This one was the most debatable though.

Saints goal clearly level.

Nobody should disagree with this, VAR is an absolute shambles. How that was offside I'll never know and also after all those VAR decisions and somebody decided to add the bare minimum 3 mins? No conspiracy just incompetence.

Everything is micro managed now to the point once VAR is looked at it's letter of the law time, accept no substitutes and referees can't then use common sense.

The rules of the game are being badly shown up by VAR. I'm a man u fan & no fan of David Luiz but look at that Arsenal game. Had he hacked the Wolves player down in an "attempt" to play the ball then he would've got a yellow. He pulled out of the tackle & got a red instead. Its all madness. VAR got three decisions wrong in the man u game. The use of VAR is being very badly used.

VAR isn't the problem. It is the officials, and not all of them, that choose to take the rules and decide they want to see them how they prefer. Some of the officials bottle it when it comes to certain teams.
Was against it from the start.... not because of how well it might work, but because it would detract from the spirit of sport, which is after all what it's all about.

Don’t blame VAR for issues with the rules - this red card for accidental contact is just a bizarre interpretation. It will now be clarified now doubt. As for offside needs to be given a margin of error and/or done by eye, no lines. But I’ll happily take the pen that was a free kick being overruled.

And also benefitted by VAR this season and the last one. Saints were very poor tonight with no fight . Safe from relegation but nothing to play for . The middle bit of the Premier league is a bit dull with teams showing how bad they can be every now and then by getting hammered.

As a United Fan myself VAR works both ways as against Sheff Utd when we lost it was VAR that cost us that victory. The Ref and VAR admitted they both got decisions wrong but result still stand.
Agree on the second Red though. Jan Bednarek foul was a bit tame.

Its not a red card, once again the officials making decisions on a technicality. By not attempting to play the ball, that does not mean trying to avoid contact. It means deliberately catching a player through on goal without going for the ball. Same as the stupid technicality with the City offside, reading too far into into. That rule was changed, this will too. Crap
03/02/2021 00:44:30 6 4

Pretty sure this decision was made to support the Luiz sending off, Dean was giving free kicks to Southampton when their own players ran into each other at one point, smacks more of incompetence rather than bias

Actually the rule already states no red for non deliberate denial of GSO in box. Refs just don't seem to know the rules , or imagine that every foul that isn't a mis-timed tackle is deliberate. That one was a yellow going by the rules , since it was clearly not deliberate.

If VAR needs to be used for offsides can we get rid of the lines. The point of VAR is to correct clear and obvious mistakes by the officials. If you can't determine if a clear and obvious mistake has been made without putting lines across the pitch then its quite possible that there wasn't a clear and obvious mistake and the on field decision should stand

The 'Umpire's call' use in the Decision Review System in cricket works very well.

Where there is an element of doubt (surely, there is a margin of error? Could they use +/-1cm? 5cm?), they should just be going with the call on the field.

VAR could work if applied fairly and consistently. It's pathetic how it's used currently.

I thought all this had been resolved, however, it appears not. VAR had good intentions, but is seriously flawed. If there is no gap between the lines, in my view the decision should be given to the attacker. With regards to offside, it's OK to rule out a goal if a player is offside during the build up, however what if a player is deemed offside incorrectly and play is stopped, no VAR to correct???

I wrote to the PL & FA to point out that FIFA & EUFA both state categorically that VAR is not to be used for micro-measurements in tight offside calls, others have suggested a 100mm (4") demarcation line between defenders & attackers to give clear air but nothing has been done & i dont believe anything will be done. Clubs are allowed to have VAR turned OFF in their games so why dont they!
