I'm okay with Chelsea winning tbh. I don't really like Chelsea all that much, other than the Chelsea fans on here... I actually think Chelsea & fans are a bunch of cunts tbh, but letting them lock down 3rd place is fine by me after they beat City.

And I don't really have anything against West Ham as a club, I just hate the porno brothers and Karen Brady... so I've been fine with the idea of them going down for a while.

You are now irrelevant in the season so be quiet.

This is the most relevant Liverpool have ever been in any premier league season ever

What fucking kind of defending is that? Just crouching down in the middle of a crowd with no fucks given where the ball is going  xD

Oh fuck off. Antonio's head while he's on the floor is offside xD

Did that ball touch Antonio? Because if it didn't that's got to be up there for farce of the season.

Can't believe that was given offside. Kepa's view is not blocked and Antonio didn't touch it.

 

Pulisic gains a penalty and Willian slots it away easily. 0-1.

Can someone explain to me why Dave is marking the tallest player on the pitch whilst Tammy Abraham, sitting at 6'3, is marking the post? All bloody season our marking at set pieces has been embarrassing. 

Awful from us. Should be 2-1 to West Ham as for the life of me, I haven't the slightest idea why that VAR decision was given. Antonio doesn't even touch the ball.

I'm actually fuming at that disallowed goal. A competition that determines that that isn't a goal has no credibility. It's absolutely beyond a joke.

Kepa pretty sharp there appealing for offside against Antonio or is that just football now every time a goal is scored, wave your arms around and appeal for some generic offence that has occurred against you so that VAR look at it until they find an excuse to disallow it?

Definitely this.

And if he even thinks Antonio is impeding his view (even if it does just turn out to be his head) there's not a chance he thinks it's offside from where he's standing. It's definitely 'appeal at all costs' in the hope someone, somewhere will be checking it.

The fact it's taken an age to determine a 'clear and obvious error' disappoints me. Same as what happened in our game (22 replays and 2+ minutes to see if Ndidi handballed it). For what it's worth, I think that was a penalty but the inconsistency of decisions in general based on human error/perception also is frustrating.

Eh, I think with the Ndidi one it was just hard to spot whether it his hand or Keane's first. Ndidi handles it first then it's a stonewall penalty, Keane does then it's a goal kick. The number of replays seemed pretty excessive but it was a case of checking whether something that's a definite offence happened or not.

This one was (yet another) example of them looking at the replays where the rule is open to interpretation to decide which sub-article of the rules they can fall back on to overturn a decision rather than looking for something that's clear and obvious which is the whole point of VAR. Okay there was a moment where Antonio's body was between Kepa and the ball but for fuck's sake.

After about 5 or 6 views to me it was clear it had struck Ndidi's hand first.

Whatever that was from Christensen (because it wasn't "defending"), it was absolutely terrible. Just wanders off and leaves Antonio unmarked with an open goal.
