    PGMOL have already said they couldn't get an angle on the player so they went with the on field decision :o

    Despite them using technology on the wrong player?

    Honestly what a mess

    It's because they couldn't see the correct player, they couldn't draw a line so had to go with the on field decision, it's nothing to do with drawing a line on the wrong player really.

    I'd hope they have massive fines, before a potentially huge game as well, as a team mate I'd be absolutely fuming.

    You could?

    They said Liverpool's goal was offside at the weekend and couldn't even see the ball.

    They didn't need to see the ball, they can check when the ball was played from another frame, you do need to see the player though. As much as people want to knock VAR, they done nothing wrong there. If you cannot see the player, you can't overturn the decision. This was an incident where an audio feed allowing us to hear the discussions going on would have helped though.

    Gotta admire Rodgers for the way he took a stand and handled it...

    To say before tonight Everton had a chance of getting top 4 says alot about the league. Dire.

    they have been awful since xmas, multiple chances to get in the top 4 and they just bottle it..
    A lot of injuries, but that was a shocking display.
    Not sure why Carlo keeps bringing on iwobi!

    Wish Brighton were more clinical, they've got a pretty tough run in so it's gonna be squeaky bum time I think.

    I saw some stat that if the League was based on xg then Brighton would be 4th. It's not that shocking when you watch Brighton play - they're a really good football side, they just can't score to save their lives.

    Potter has certainly worked wonders with the team, it will be interesting to see him with a better team/budget.

    You cannot see the deepest part of the defender in that image, can you? If you cannot plot the points then you can't use the tech.

    We don't need to surely. It's so obvious why do you even need a line??!

    The part we can see shows he's onside, I'm not sure how a deeper part would be needed. Can't they just use the attacker as the deepest point and see how it's not offside?

    Since when did var just decide whether somebody was offside by looking at a picture? The process is they need to plot the furthest foward part of the defender and the furthest forward part of the forward - no camera angle allowed them to do that and that's why it couldn't be used.

    Right I get that but we can literally see it in that still image?

    It's obvious??!
