No respective red card for Lo Celso
Complete cock up by VAR official for obvious red
The whole thing is a joke
Spurs should be down to 10 men

We must stop blaming VAR, and name the culprit.

It wasn't VAR, both were decisions by wankers. The same wankers we see every week. We now have wankers second-guessing wankers. No wonder we get the same bad biased decisions, but now with twice the chance of an error.
Rob, Terence Trent Darby?

Bottom line is, it proves, when they were out on the field, many of these referees were inept.

All with a poor process governing how decisions are reached, all overseen by Mike Riley(?) the wanker's wanker?
Why don't they look at the monitor?

Barkley played well today. Unfortunately, he was determined to leave us regardless, so nothing we could really do.
I think the way he left could have been better handled by all parties. Great shame.

Neither decision was a clear and obvious mistake by the referee and neither decision made by VAR was ultimately correct.
The Premier League will be responsible if there is an outbreak of trouble at a stadium, due to these ever ridiculous calls by VAR.
I'm not condoning trouble of course, but imagine today's incident happening at Goodison next month; we celebrate wildly as Everton breakaway score the winner in added on time only to discover that a dodgy handball given by VAR leads to a penalty to the other lot instead and we lose???

For fans like myself and others who have watched football for 30 plus years, it's killing the game and it's really starting to kill my enjoyment of football now in general.
It's like the officials who run VAR pick and choose what goals they want chalked off or given or what penalties or red cards they want to give, regardless of the clear logic of what every man, dog and his fuckin goldfish can see on the television screens.
It's completely destroyed the game and if it's still here next season, the demolition of football as we knew it will continue under the bulldozers that is VAR and Premier League officials.
ps: That Burnley lad Dwight McNeil looks a tidy little player, definitely one that I am hoping Brands and Carlo are watching closely.
