That statement is strictly about the procedure but it wouldn't be good reading for Friend if he were capable of such things.

Sounds like ass covering to me. 

I haven't heard 1 pundit say that grealish took a dive.

What they are saying is VAR reviewed the penalty decision. But couldn't rule whether grealish had took a dive or not !!!

Its gets more farcical by the hour.

 

VAR could only review the dive / penalty. It couldn't award the goal because the whistle had already gone. This is 100% on Kevin Friend. VAR powerless, and I accept that.

The penalty decision nobody at Villa appealed for.

I was talking to some Palace fans earlier and they couldn't see what the problem was because the initial foul was outside the box. It doesn't **** matter, we scored, nobody is complaining it should have been a penalty!

**** the PL.

its much forgotten now - but this is why I knew we would lose the POF v Fulham - the london clubs stick together - I seem to recall a blatent stamping in that match. Plus we didn't get ant decisions until we were 1 down. I don't want us to get relegated but hate what the PL has become.

I don’t think I can watch Match of the Day, it’s going to wind me up too much.

How can a player dive if he's played the ball? **** the FA. **** VAR. **** Kevin Friend. All absolutely useless.

"Ass covering". Correct. Funny how the PL and their compliant parasites in the press are now throwing around "VAR WAS checked for the Villa goal" – totally fudging the two separate issues of the goal and the penalty. By the way, I don't believe a word that any VAR official says after the fact. Last week, during Martin Atkinson's bizarre performance in the Norwich v Chelsea game, they were more than happy to say things about when whistles were/weren't blown or when checks were/weren't referred that completely contradicted the evidence before our eyes. Lies within lies within lies.

Yes that's what I mean by the dive / penalty. They were able to overturn the decision to a penalty if Grealish was fouled. What VAR couldn't do is "wave play on" retrospectively.

Had Friend just waited 2 seconds to blow the whistle, VAR would have had much more scope to intervene.

What kind of screamer votes the refereeing performance as Very Good?..

If Grealish dived , that would mean he be lying on the ground, so who passed the ball to Lansbury, VAR?

Old man Woy has supported Friend on Sky sports news. I didn't like him when he was England manager and I don't like him now.

I'm sure he would have not been supporting the referee, had this decision gone against them. Perhaps he would have been better saying nothing, like he did in the press conference after the defeat that cost him the England job!  😠

Having just seen that clip, he says i havent got a view, the ref is best placed and sometimes these things go for you sometimes they dont.

Thats manager speak for yeah we got lucky with that decision

Still Raging.

We weren't good. That's a fact.

But we hung in there despite what was the most awful referring performance I have witnessed - and that was before the sending off and that diabolical decision to deny us an equalizer.

I'm still gobsmacked we had 4 yellows by halftime where serial offenders Milovojevic and Kouyate got nothing.

Oh, you are kidding me. This gets more ridiculous. A phantom pre-goal whistle on the MOTD coverage, while Gary Lineker has a chuckle that Kevin Friend somehow managed to do it "without his hands ever leaving his side". What did I say earlier? Lies within lies within lies.

At the time I thought the ref had blown to give us a penalty .. MOTD seems to suggest that noise wasn’t the ref blowing his whistle ... the plot thickens

 

still everyone on the planet seems to acknowledge we were cheated so I expect the next ref to make it up to us ...
