They've let it significantly impact a World Cup final. No game is safe from the creeping influence of VAR

i didnt like that call either but this one was even worse.


i really dont know why common sense has gone by the way side, there was a reason it says deliberate handball.

How many handballs are deliberate, at the end of the day? If that incident had happened anywhere else on the pitch, nobody bats an eyelid. Sissoko was daft to have his arm hung out like that, and if 3-4 ex-refs and numerous pundits (not to mention the ref at the game) think it was a penalty, I’m not going to argue...

by deliberate i would count the unnatural position too and as i said (even though he was pointing for coverage reasons) if the ball had hit the hand directly, i would of been fine with it but it deflects off his chest.

Winks was ok but Rose was definetly our best player on the night.

even when we made the changes we seemed to struggle to generate anything but shots from outside the box.can easily say now that Kane shouldn't have been left on once we started making changes but much easier to take of others than your star even when he is so un-fit.

it wasn't a handball as most fans would agree or like to see given but Uefa have decided that's there bench mark now and as we saw with the PSG hand ball for the united winner or Danny Rose in the man city 1st leg if it hits an arm/hand in the box from any distance then they are going to give a penalty.

in England we have had a rule where if it deflects of a chest then hits the arm it wouldn't be given but wonder if next year we go with the new interpretation.

sadly Sissoko had his arm waving around and gave the official a reason to say penalty and VAR was never going to over rule even 30 seconds into a major final.

in a way taking deliberate out does help the ref's as its hard enough to be consistent these days without having to try and get into the minds of players but even with this decision it hits his chest then his arm pit area so is it even really a hand ball,its not like he steps towards or dips into the cross the ball comes straight at him.
