The bottom line is that we were given a lifeline ( at 2 -0) by a valid sending-off, yet we failed to capitalise on it for an entire 45 mins.
Their iffy penalty was the nail in the coffin, as I couldn't really see us coming back to score a further 2 goals.
At least it wasn't the thumping than many here expected, but we certainly had a chance to salvage a point....possibly more.

WTF. its either a pen or corner. If u Believe what you posted then you must be a corrupt ref like the rest.

Unfortunately it’s not. Go read the laws of the game

What a bizarre game.

A lot to think about.

Another game where refereeing was all over the shop and completely determined the result.

Being on the wrong side of it this time, we have every right to feel aggrieved.

The refereeing in this country is an absolute joke. More often than not the drama is with the erratic refereeing, rather than the game of football itself.

Wouldn't say we deserved to win... Or lose... Who knows what the result would have been if we had reliable refereeing in the PL.

There are about 5 people who post on NSC who do that.

For the rest of us we shrug and move on :shrug:
I shrugged . . .now I'm moving on . . .

I still think VAR should be binned. Its just wrong on every level.

Maybe not corruption - but explain why Caicedo didn't get one of two blatant second yellows.
Exactly..he should have been off..who knows how the game would have panned out afterwards. Milner v soft pen but think he should have left it for Steele to deal with. Very frustrating to have so much possession for 60 mins with very little to show for it. None of this detracts from the fact that Chelsea are the most objectionable club in the league though.

Important match against Brentford next.

These are the games we need to win if we want to be in Europe again, next season.

Are we really going to be one of those teams with embarrassing fans that scream corruption when things don't go our way
Clearly is when he didn't give a corner. Clearly is when he doesn't give Caicedo a 2nd yellow with 2 dodgy tackle, 1 from behind. Clearly it's when they get a penalty and we don't with virtually any difference, although neither should have been given. I could probably go on. If there was only 1 big iffy decision you'd say fair enough but really.

Was the reffing bad today? Can't think of much wrong with it, and we got a lot of fouls given for us that i didn't expect.

Caicedo should have walked and they should not have had a penalty but the shenanigans around Pawson not signalling very well will get most of the grief on here despite it being a rare occasion when VAR worked correctly as Pawson made a blunder they could intervene on.
