Yes, your eyes aren't deceiving you. I'll start the thread.

It's hard enough getting a hiding from a team as good as this, but tonight's officiating really hasn't helped.

Can't defend this one.

For me, the Gross one has the foul outside the bix

The Pedro one is a terrible decision, absolute bottle job

Piss poor, just atrocious. From start to end really. Thing that pissed me off the most was not booking Walker for taking about a minute to give someone the armband when it could have just been thrown or passed

Reminder on the decisions, VAR is now “tweaked” to overrule less, this is almost entirely on the gobshite with the whistle

The only positive thing about that officiating is that it didn’t effect the result.

Conscious or subconscious, there’s definitely a bias there, especially when you compare the Foden free kick and the Pedro penalty incidents.
Yes - and they were both ref's decisions (i know VAR backed the ref up on the penalty - but it was his initial decision).

Several poor decisions, not a conspiracy or anything and we were losing anyway as we were awful. VAR added no value, would prefer honest mistakes.

Giving a freekick for falling over a blade of grass helped them get goal number 2.
