Just on the topic of referees, I'm watching the rugby, and Quins scored a try. They check it using the Video ref, but the on field ref (who is mic'd up), explains what he saw and what he thinks. Then watches the replay and changes his mind and again explains why he has reversed his decision.
I wonder if half the problem with VAR in football is that we can't hear the reasoning behind what the on-field ref and the video ref are thinking. Just a thought.
My memory isn’t that great but I do remember us scoring and the general consensus was that it was offside it was earlier in the season. Some were saying that yesterday’s goal was offside too.
As I say, these things even out and the best teams succeed regardless of refereeing decisions over the course of a season. The ref made an awful decision yesterday, but it’s just one of those things. The fact that he’s being harassed by Boro fans on social media is embarrassing and wrong.
Our players made mistakes to concede the goal; Howson and Bola with that ridiculous backwards header and Mendez Laing with that storming run towards his own goal! You could argue that without those 2 mistakes we could have won 1-0.
Not saying you're wrong, but could you name one?
I genuinely cannot remember a single offside goal counting for us.
I can remember multiple "offside" goals being disallowed for us though. The one against Reading sticks out most.
These things tend to even themselves out over a season. There are plenty of decisions that have gone our way, there are some that have gone against us. We’ve scored a couple of “offside” goals that have counted this season and nobody has cared.
