I think i'm more perturbed by DM thinking we played well and that it was a good performance.

Read the rules properly, the law quoted above only applies if the attacker does not go on to score or assist
This is really confusing. Rice didn't go on to score!

Hire a tactical dinasour as manager and this is what happens. It’s 2020 and our entire game plan was playing long balls to Haller all game and hope we didn’t concede. Embarrassing

Good to see we’ve got deluded David Moyes at the helm. According to him it was a really good idea performance and we possibly deserved more than the point we almost snatched 😂😂😂

We are in big, big trouble with idiots like that in control of our club. We were terrible tonight. VAR was irrelevant, didn’t deserve anything regardless.
I’m not Moyes’ biggest fan, but that is excessively harsh.

We had more chances than them, we didn’t play badly. The system we set up with was to nullify them and how they’ve been playing and having success against teams all season.

They scored from a mistake from our training ground keeper.

We got **cked over by a shocking VAR decision that seems to be ok for Liverpool but not for the rest of the league.

At least the tide is turning against VAR now. Players, pundits and certain managers are all speaking out against it. It has to go, for the greater good.

Ahh David Moyes..because he’s had such a successful career, built on playing good football....NOT. The guy is clueless, a tactical dinosaur. A managerial career littered with sackings and relegations.

On the flip side you need to open your eyes and see he has been here 5 minutes and already got us playing dead football :lol:

Now where have we seen this before? Oh yeh the last time he was here

Again read the rules properly, it doesn't matter if it is a deflection, that rule is overridden if the player goes on to score or assist (which rice did)
Man - that is the dumbest rule I have ever heard of! Add to that the fact they have not been applying it consistently, and the fact they are using some guy in a room poring over TV footage in case of the slightest infringement and this game is totally f***ed this season.

I'm happy with the performance for where we are at the minute. That would have been 3-0 under Pellers. Barring the Martin f*** up, we looked fairly solid. We also had some great chances. All this while we were effectively 2 players down in Noble and Lanzini.

We lost the game because Lanzini, Anderson and Haller all fluffed their chances.

Moyes' job this season is to stop us being a soft touch and conceding 3's and 4's. He seems to have done that already.

They have applied it consistently apart from one incident with Dele Alli (to whom The VAR rules don't seem to apply)
