REVISE that score!

0 ( +1 / -1 )

You cannot recise a score post match as if the goal was awarded (which it should have been at the time), the dynamics of the game would likely change and there in no way to know who would have put the next 2 or 3 of 4 goals in.

It could be that a goal would motivate the opposition into scoring rapidly and therefore change the outcome anyway.

We can never know this.

It happens to all teams, so revising post match scores would be an even further blight on the game and contentious.

Imagine the horrors that would unfold as each team tries to comb through videos of their matches to change the points in their favour?

Horrible.

To err is human. To forgive is divine. Just like football players, VAR officials are human, fragile and mortal. Fans and admirers of the Beautiful Game need to forgive the officials and allow them to carry on serving the game.

There have always been incorrect decisions made in football matches. It really shouldn’t have happened with the VAR but it did and at the end of the day, you just have to accept it in the same way you would any other bad decision. Over the season I’m sure Liverpool will have a few bad decisions go their way. They’ll just have to suck it up and move on to the next game.

It is too obvious. The PL, FA, PGMOL, would do anything to help that one team to win year after year. Even with 115 charges against them, they are allowed to keep on playing and winning. It is not jealousy or bitterness, it is just too obvious now. It is not only Liverpool but every team has suffered in some ways in order to benefit that one team. The PL is so rigged and corrupted. It has come to a point where you almost cannot watch it anymore.
