On a side note Steph Frappart the referee tonight has been consummate, poised and unfussy. Handled all the VAR protocol well, but she's had good exposure to it.
Will Adrian take a pen?

If the ref calls it and the VAR uphold it or change it, then everyone who is adversely affected by the final outcome will complain. Human nature says the officials cannot win no matter what.
Players are to blame for a lot of the crap we see on the pitch especially the play acting and shirt pulling. The powers that be should ordain shirt-pulling as a foul every time, no matter where it happens.
At one time, only one or two players had reputations for 'diving' but these days it seems a pre-requisite for all players entering the penalty area.

Another cup for that lot and we couldn't beat Millwall or Southampton last season. Telling you that I would be happy to finish 17th this season if we won a cup.
