Var was supposedly brought in to stop this shit from happening - serious questions must be asked of friend and the var controllers - we were awful today and very poor but that was Cheating by friend

Just seem it on twitter. Jack does go down but it's because a) he stretched to make the pass and b) he was fouled not once but twice. Referee had a great view but there's obviously a few quid sitting in a foreign bank for the corrupt, bent word removed. I hope a tree falls on his car on the way home.

That is possibly the worst refereeing performance I have ever seen. Kevin Friend is an absolute joke of a referee. 

Does anyone agree with me that VAR is an absolute joke now? What is the point in VAR if teams are still getting screwed over by ridiculous referees.

Still raging over it 

Look at the way cahills legs and body reacts after the contact

Cahill goes down clutching his shin FFS but there's not contact and its a dive?

We probably didn't deserve a point but that late ref blunder certainly cost us one ...... stonewall penalty and the ref will know that when he sees it this evening !

Villa moved the ball forward reasonably well but the final ball was lacking ...... as in there generally wasn't one. We failed to put enough crosses over and we lacked an incisive runner to slip passes through to ...... so we reverted to passing back to the half way line again and again !

My main concern at the moment is Wesley. He may have potential but you'd need to drop to at least League One to find a level where he would be considered a threat. He lacks pace, he lacks strength, he lacks aerial prowess and he simply is way off the pace for this level. Davis offered far more in the short time he was on and deserves to start the next game if its a choice between him and Wesley.

Surely after not just this performance but his previous performances we can ask that he never referees us again. The evidence is there for a corruption case.

perhaps you can tell me then - does the game stop for a dive ? - I always thought you played on then booked the player ?

used to be referees discretion.  I haven't kept up with rule changes the past few years.  There were a lot this summer.  So to can't say with certainty.

FFS - its even worse because both players fall over - did he book the other one for diving ?

?? - He did a plan b - Davis - the fact that you didn't like the plan b and the plan b didn't work - doesn't mean he didn't have one.

To be fair if the rules of the game applied it would have bought us a point. Surely a complaint to the FA over Friend is warranted?

I'll be honest here... that did look like a dive. You can see Grealish leaves his left foot dragging along the ground from before Cahill makes contact, and the moment of 'impact' is conveniently obscured on the replay by the referee. Obviously can't tell for certain as the replay isn't great, but it does look like a dive. I'm not sure VAR would have overturned the ref's decision.

Trezeguet's two bookings were also fair enough. Not saying the referee was without fault by any stretch of the imagination - the inconsistency in bookings was ridiculous. 

We were up against it all game and Palace were the better side. We didn't deserve any points from that game anyway. Move on to the next game.

No it doesn't even seem they bothered with VAR, the referee should of gone over to look at the incident on a monitor or something, i mean wtf is this ?

Away in london says it all really -  what I hate about the PL.

If you disallow a goal in the 93rd minute - how can VAR not be invloved

I don't think we were any worse for trez going off - he was having zero impact.
