Ffs. A goal in the 94th minute. Didn’t deserve a draw anyway, I suppose.
Liverpool should have won that well before the 94th minute. Not sure how Jiota didn’t score from 5m out.

Anyway let’s hope Man City fall in a heap. But with their depth I can’t see it.

Good to see Brentford score 2 late goals to beat Watford 2-1, puts them mid table and takes a bit of pressure off them.

R Jimenez, real dumb. Senseless sendoff when Wolves were coping well & frustrating Man City. Now have to play with one less for over 1/2 a game.

Garbage penalty gifted Man City the lead. Mystified how VAR could uphold a clearly incorrect decision. Ball hit player under the armpit, no hand ball. That decision would not have been given at the other end of the field. Gutless officiating.

The send off, deserved but the penalty a clear gift. Poor officiating & blind mice overseeing VAR.

No argument on the send off. Brain fart & Jimenez knew it too but the penalty just 'something else'. Woeful. VAR more to blame than onfield ref.

get rid of the VAR. team scores, players and fans celebrate, then the VAR dismisses the goal coz the player had a toe nail offside. Go back to the good old days when the linesman makes the call. If it's too close to call too bad. Also what's with the linesmen delaying the offside call these days. It used to be if you're offside the flag went up straight away. The game is worse off now IMO.

Get rid of that shaving cream the refs carry around too.

I'd make so if most of the player's body is level, play on... a fingernail in front shouldn't be offside

Arsene Wegner proposed a decent change some time ago

According to him, a player should be judged offside only if any part of the body with which he can score a goal is past the last defender.

Wolves make enough mistakes themselves without **** VAR adding to it.

Geez Leeds tonked 7:0 by Citeh. They won't sack Bielsa after his heroics getting up to the top flight, but they are really finding it tough these season.

Can't see Newcastle recovering

Not only his heroics getting them up. But a really solid first season in the top flight too. Second year blues are not uncommon. But gee, getting nervous now. Pressure is on.

Thought they had turned a corner coming within a whisker of holding Chelsea to a draw. Then wow, where did this belting come from!

Although I think a few of us have commented on here before. Beilsa is a purist. He has a specific vision of how he wants his teams to play. It’s a never die wondering, very attacking game. If a team scores against you, you don’t try and rescue a draw, you try and score more than them.

When it comes off, it really troubles opposition defences and can look beautiful. But by not being more pragmatic, gee it leaves you open at the back.
