It's taken him 30-odd shots since he last scored.
This is after another one of those awful VAR decisions were an excellent Spurs goal was ruled out for offside by a nose-hair.
Can't believe the VAR nonsense from yesterday, where an obvious penalty was denied by the ref, and not given by VAR, but what was given as a penalty and accepted by VAR was ridiculous, the attacker kicking the ball out for a goal-kick and throwing himself at the defender.
I hate it.

If only we had spent £25m on Maddison and £20m on Pereira rather than £45m on Siggy i'd be feeling much happier about our squad!

VAR is effectively the same tired incompetents making the same incompetent decisions. I've no idea who was in charge of VAR at Leicester but I'd be surprised if we didn't recognise his name as one of the usual woeful suspects.
We need to start personalising it, or we are giving them a get-out clause.

Good game at the Emirates. Villa leading 2-1 and Arsenal down to ten men.

VAR - Very Advantageous to Redshite

Same marginal decisions in favour of the favoured teams.
Unwritten law, don't contradict or undermine the onfield referee, no matter how deluded he may be.
Name the names, don't blame VAR!
Call them out, VAR is the same crap decisions, by the same crap referees, just once removed.
Every VAR decision has a name behind it.

Let's be honest, the RS and Utd are always going to get favourable decisions but by standing up and pointing out the errors then maybe we can move forward. Remember when Moyes sent the tape of Andy Johnson fouls to the FA? I'm sure we got a penalty the week later.

I was under the impression that three referees studied the incidents under consideration.
As it is and has been pointed out, it's the same old system moved from the field of play to a studio, so it's quite possible for the league title to be won by referees in a studio, more than possible.

Also who decided that all decisions would be made at Stockley park, and why are the paying punters not shown what var is looking at. If you attend cricket, rugby,tennis the fans can see what the officials are checking but you cant possibly incite the morons who go to football by letting them see what the officials are looking at.

Our VAR ref was our old friend Lee Mason on Saturday, according to the match programme. A miracle that nothing disastrous occurred, other than the appalling display of course!

Bernardo, and possibly Mendy, miss the point that these kind of "jokes" are passive racism. It sends the message that it's ok to poke fun of someone's skin colour because look over here, he's a premier league footballer doing it and his mate found it funny. This then leads someone else to do it to someone who is not their mate and does not find it funny, and then they can say the victim of the "joke" simply has no sense of humour.
If Bernardo and Mendy did this in private, then fine. Nothing wrong with that. It's between them. However, they did it on twitter for millions to see. The joke is a racist one and by it being "ok" sends the message to others that it's fine to make the same joke. This is what Bernardo needs to understand.
