    The best example being the 3 goals we conceded at Old Trafford after Jan Bednarek was incorrectly dismissed. The result of the game might not have been altered, but the effect on our goal difference might have been a huge factor at the end of the season.

    I've seen it reported that Rob Jones did see Vestergaard touching the ball. Which makes it even worse! You saw it, and yet you still sent him off!!!

    In turn, that is also the suggestion as to why the VAR didn't send him over to the monitor. Once he told the VAR that he did see the touch, his view wasn't obscured, and that his conclusion was red, the VAR essentially took the view that there was no point getting him to look at it again. If he had no defence in getting in wrong once, why bother asking him to get it wrong a second time.

    We've had three total howlers go against us. Bednarek, Vestergaard and Cash. Thankfully the independent panel has removed the two red cards, but we're still left owed a penalty please. (We've had many other bad decisions too, such as Bertrand. But those particular three were off the scale bad - zero justification for being called the way they were.)

    He didn't even want to blow for the penalty. If you watch it he goes to put the whistle to his lips, stops, then realises var would give it anyway.

    That's crap. He's allowed a few seconds to process what he's seen.

    What like a ****ing handball? Surely it's easier to just blow for what you saw? Watch it back and tell me he doesn't think twice about it.

    I remember it. He puts his whistle to his lips, yes he does hesitate, but he makes the right decision. He did blow for what he saw. Who cares if he waited a few seconds before blowing - too often referee's blow the whistle before fully processing in their brain what they saw. I've done it. It was actually good that he waited, thought about it, and said that's a penalty.

    You don't have the backup of var though. It was always going to be given!

    Actually I'm with Tom on this one. The ball bounced from Iheanacho's hand on to his head. Jones was replaying it in his mind to make sure it didn't hit the head first, which in the strange world we now live in, would have invalidated the handball.
