I’m claiming about 6 shite VAR calls / non calls against us in a row in the league. Not even biased - factual 🤷🏻‍♂️

@Bodian posted a clip on the match thread but I think this is probably a clearer angle - Gilmour could have made a lot of jerking his head away and dropping down to the ground but it looks like there was definite contact and no intention of going for the ball imo

Watch part 2 - his fist is nowhere near the ball Wissa hits Gilmour’s face (imo)

The best you can say for the Wissa defence is that he threw a punch but didn’t intend to connect.

The notion he was aiming for the ball is for the birds.

Meh - something and nothing for me.
He's looking at the ball and swings his left arm to knock the ball out of Gilmour's arm. Gilmour simultaneously moves the ball away from him and Wissa's fingertips happen to catch WBG's face.
If you ask me the ref/VAR got it spot on - caution for WBG for delaying the re-start and caution for Wissa.

There is no ‘fingertips’. It’s a fist. Knuckles.

The ‘intention’ argument is irrelevant. He connects with Billy’s face.

Yep. A lot of blue and white tinted glasses on this thread so far.

I think the officials are just trolling us. We can't do a thing about it. The whole pen/corner/drop ball at Stamford Bridge was one of the most embarrassing moments of officiating I've ever seen. Even going to the screen to double check was just insulting.

The punch today, I've kinda given up on officials. They're all f***ing idiots and I think they take joy in our misfortune after how publicly the manager, players (Dunk) and fans have told them they are twats. Dunk should have got a medal, not a ban.

He was trying to slap the ball out of Billy’s hands because he was preventing the feee kick being taken quickly. Caught him in the face completely by accident. Yellow was the right call.
Isn’t that a sending off offence anyway?

“SENDING OFF

Sending-off offences include (but are not limited to):

  • delaying the restart of play by the opposing team e.g. holding onto the ball, kicking the ball away, obstructing the movement of a player”
