You guys have quite a player in Adama Traore, I'd love to know what that man eats for breakfast, besides City defenders obviously, what an absolute mountain of a man. He must seriously hate Pep or something (maybe from their time at Barca or something?), that's the second time he's produced such a performance against them.

Can't believe that Claudio Bravo conceded more PL goals this season than Alisson Becker. That was only his 2nd start, what a ridiculous stat :)

Adama is a funny guy too. You should watch this video clip from 4:50 onwards where he finds out that his FIFA game "physicality" rating is lower than Doherty.

This VAR nonsense is well beyond a joke now.

Indeed.

Determining the position of the shoulder of a player from a "tilted angle image" is utterly ridiculous in my opinion.

I can't understand why they don't simply use the foot position instead, which is much easier to ascertain.

We seem to have opened Pandora's box with VAR.
That Pukki offside would appear to be technically correct (although VAR haven't shared their millimetre perfect view) but is it now beyond the spririt of the game? My gut said 'goal' and a good goal too. Then we get machination. It's not a good look. The authorities and vested interests need to take note,

Agreed. His feet were half a yard behind the defenders feet. It's daft that the angle in which he's leaning at the time the ball is played is a consideration. A great goal lost forever!
