What is VAR all about. Definite penalty, Jesus was clipped in the penalty box - fact. Mahrez was onside for his goal - fact. Stephens fouling at will but only one yellow. It didn’t matter because City won, but it could have and could do if it comes down to goal difference. Given the Martial dive last night and Bednarek sending off all of which were similar, all I ask for is consistency.

Flock off, dive. He got clipped and said it wasn't a foul as it aas an accidental coming together. A penalty but not a red. Sterling falls over far more cheaply.

There needs to be accountability. If I make mistakes at work they get picked up and I am accountable. Idiots like Dean (and the normally dependable Atkinson) make mistakes, don’t seem to learn and therefore need to have sanctions applied. Same for the VAR muppets at Stockley Park. I’m pretty sure that would ensure they look at the screens more and as a result make better decisions.

Why do people constantly blame Var? It's just a tool the refs use. Blame the refs not the system.

While VAR is operated by referees their decisions will be influenced and biased. The referees club now own the game even more than before VAR.
The amount of dubious decisions given or not given have risen since the introduction of VAR. Why is there no impartial overseer? a non referee for example' and why should the referees' onfield decision be upheld as a deal breaker? If it's wrong it's wrong.

There's nothing in the laws of the game that says a slight clip in the penalty area is a foul & automatic stonewall penalty. It's up to the discretion of the ref to decide whether it was enough to bring the player down. It's more likely to be given if a player is clipped when running at full speed, than if he's just turning on the spot & can leave his trailing foot. Basically it's up to the ref.

Boring, boring Man City. It's getting like watching Man Unt in their heyday when all they would do was win, win, win. The unexciting brand of possession football, stretching the opposition, creating chances and invariably scoring goals with nothing coming back their way is no recipe for an exciting game for a neutral. If I want to fall asleep and Man City are on TV, they are the team to watch.

Not a supporter but when City are on it there isn't a team in this division that is anywhere close.

Couldn't care less what money they have, every team buys their success in the PL and ALL those usually in the running have spent an absolute fortune pursuing it.
Nonsense.

City get their money from a depraved human rights abusing state.

Stop throwing everything in one pot, no club is as morally bankrupt as city.

IMO there is a big difference morally and in terms of fair play between success which is financed by income that a club has generated itself (eg Man Utd, Liverpool) and success which has been bankrolled by outside wealth for the benefactor's own cynical political ends (Man City, Chelsea).

Standard/consistency of refereeing every week is questionable. Not that the decisions would have impacted the result but Jesus should have had a pen, offside lines are childish.

People who think they can decide an offside by drawing lines across the pitch are lacking numeracy. At 50 m from the origin of the lines, which is probably a camera in the stand, the error of being 0.5 degree out is .4m, roughly 1 ft 3 in old money. Then there's parallax error because the camera isn't perfectly in line. Wasn't the original intention of VAR to correct obvious errors only?

I hope that Garlick and Banaszkiewicz, who have each made fortunes in this Yank sell out; (the club reportedly now £90M worse off and saddled with debt); looked up from counting their money to see the side and bench Dyche had to put out.

Boring, boring Man City. It's getting like watching Man Unt in their heyday when all they would do was win, win, win. The unexciting brand of possession football, stretching the opposition, creating chances and invariably scoring goals with nothing coming back their way is no recipe for an exciting game for a neutral. If I want to fall asleep and Man City are on TV, they are the team to watch.

What is VAR all about. Definite penalty, Jesus was clipped in the penalty box - fact. Mahrez was onside for his goal - fact. Stephens fouling at will but only one yellow. It didn’t matter because City won, but it could have and could do if it comes down to goal difference. Given the Martial dive last night and Bednarek sending off all of which were similar, all I ask for is consistency.

There needs to be accountability. If I make mistakes at work they get picked up and I am accountable. Idiots like Dean (and the normally dependable Atkinson) make mistakes, don’t seem to learn and therefore need to have sanctions applied. Same for the VAR muppets at Stockley Park. I’m pretty sure that would ensure they look at the screens more and as a result make better decisions.

Couldn't care less what money they have, every team buys their success in the PL and ALL those usually in the running have spent an absolute fortune pursuing it.

City get their money from a depraved human rights abusing state.

Top sides dont need pens, var or Mike Dean.

Top sides dont rely on fortune week in week out.

Pep has sorted the leaks and even without aguero all season, city will still have biggest plus goal difference, and a 15pt gap to liverpool in 2nd, followed by leicster and hopefully west ham

Wrong HYS but BBC not brave enough to have one on this subject, the abuse directed at England legend Ian Wright via social media by that lad was absolutely disgusting and should have been a prison sentence. .no room for racism in life never mind football.

BBC never opens hys on such matters, perhaps because of the fear of more abuse on its own platform and the sad reality is it will happen.
Can't believe this problem still exists in this day n age.

I see PIGMOL applied the sliding scale law in tonights match. I'd love them to explain why our refs don't get selected for world cups, maybe FIFA do not like the way they apply the laws of the game. A FIFA ref would have gone to the monitor. I know we invented the game but really, we need to apply the laws of the game as they are in the rest of the world. But the PL need to control the "Product"

What was with the commentator's pronunciation of the City's players names? He sounded like a Belter. (Expanse series reference)
