Arsenal lost today and maybe it's the chance City wanted to get into the fight for the championship
quite a surprise, I didn't expect them to lose against Everton
its very hard to stay on top . see all the trouble chelsea and liverpool are having ( and to a lesser degree man city ) . opponents adjust ,players get injured, egos are bruised ,management styles clash ,etc etc . also , the seasons are so very long .
I had that feeling too but I think that VAR would see it. Anyway 2 big points lost today. And with that play I can't see them how they can steal a point in the next match
I've read some news after my previous post. I have to say that I'm surprised that at this stage we have this kind of errors. Considering that he made other mistakes in the past he should be sacked form his position.It has already been admitted by Lee Mason who was 'in charge' of VAR that they did not apply the offside lines onto the footage - they have noted it was a mistake. How? There were two offsides before Toney scored...but...the awarding of the foul was ridiculous in the first pace as it was Toney who faked getting fouled and the referee fell for it.
A few things. Lee Mason is regarded as one of the poorest referees over the last few decades but somehow he is now reviewing VAR. Mason was also responsible for disallowing the Martinelli opening goal at Man United - which PGMOL later apologized for as the wrong decision...but here is Mason changing outcomes yet again.
Notable yesterday, the ref at Southampton/Wolves making a ludicrous decision to send a Wolves player off for contesting a call, and the decision to not award a penalty to Chelsea playing at West Ham. Fans have had their fill of really poor refereeing and in case you are unaware there are consistent calls to either fire most of them or overhaul the whole refereeing organisation from top to bottom. One of the demands is to replace British referees with one from Europe because people believe there is a bias (if not corruption) threading through the UK system.
All that said, Arsenal did not deserve the win and Brentford were the better side yesterday. However, that does not change the fact that Lee Mason and his team spent minutes reviewing the play and then made a suspect decision without even bothering to use the technology at their fingertips.
I honestly did not think they would, but they did have a great winning streak and were ahead of City by a few points. Yesterday's loss to City precisely was really bad, it could be the start of a downfall that I don't hope for.Arsenal has started this Premier League very well, Do you think they can sustain this good level and fight for the title?
I was thinking that Arsenal will obtain a more facile victory today. Still I didn't had the courage to bet on their victory.Oh my days.
2-4 and a few heart attacks.
