    Yeah, the West Ham fans were all over that chant as well today.

    It's pretty much the end of football as a spectator sport. All you do is spend your time watching to see if the ref has his finger in his ear.

    Why not? It's clearly a handball.

    More legit than the one Wolves had chalked off last week, at least the ball went to Jesus off his arm. Boly had no chance or idea about the ball hitting him.

    It's not clearly handball, but the ball clearly hits his hand/arm, which is a strict liability thing now for that (absolute bullshit rule change but lol City). I doubt it's a penalty in his own box (unless given on field).

    There have been some silly handball calls with VAR, but this one was ok I think. He plays the pass that results in the goal with his arm.

    It's clearly handball under the current handball rule. Given it's impossible to police handballs unless they make it like they have now, I think it's the correct way to have the rule.

    This is the kind of instance where a single game xG total is useful. It's just a shot count but better, and just tells you the exact same thing as what Spikey has said in the post above you.

    This is pretty much it.

    If VAR has to check things, it's better to make it as black and white as they seem to have. Still leaving it to an interpretation with VAR would see it being relatively pointless.

    They do still need to do a better job of communication in the stadium. I know someone who went and he said all they got was a blurry photo on the screen and that was it.

    It wasn't, there were constantly arguments about "was it intentional, was it not, does it matter" blah blah blah. Rose tinted spectacles.

    And there was nothing wrong with the arguments. Same as with fouls etc. You can't make football black and white to this degree.

    It probably is. Jesus had two touches in the spurs box for the disallowed goal. At a corner, in the last minute of the game at 2-2.

    If it hits the hand, it's handball.

    Even if an opposing player twats it straight at the arm/hand of a defender?

    Has anyone tried that yet if so?

    Im old school I love the flow of the game and the enthusiasm. But if we want to get the game better Im fine with it, but I learned after the game if the ball touched the Tottenham hand then the goal is disallowed which is absurd."

    That's what De Bruyne said. Would it mean that the ball is just dead if it hit a Spurs hand accidentally?

    They won't VAR it unless it leads to a goal/penalty so effectively it'll only be called if it leads to a major advantage.

    Shit's going to hit the fan with the handball rule once someone Maradonas one in only to have it chalked off because it grazed someone's little finger in midfield in 'the build-up'.
