"Getting stupid, hate to admit it": Twitter reacts to Liverpool VAR incidents

This weekend saw yet another hard fought win for Jürgen Klopp’s men. The Reds were very much at it again. Liverpool beat Wolves at Anfield with VAR yet again taking centre stage in a controversial game.

The Reds went 1-0 up after Adam Lallana flicked Virgil van Dijk’s pass down for Sadio Mane to volley home. The ball came off Lallana’s shoulder but was given as handball on the pitch. Liverpool had the lead after VAR overturned the decision, leaving Wolves incensed.

Shortly after, Pedro Neto swept the ball into the bottom corner at the Kop end. Following a VAR review the goal was disallowed for offside. Whilst the forward was off by a millimetre or two, offside is offside. Wolves were apoplectic when their goal was chalked off.

The Reds held on and ran out 1-0 winners, extending their lead at the top to 13 points with a game in hand over Leicester City in second place. Twitter has reacted to the Liverpool and VAR controversy.

One Kopite was quick to joke about the fact that other fans rarely give us credit where it’s due and would rather just chalk up all of our success to the new technology.

Another Red said that he doesn’t mind the fume, he’s happy living rent free in their heads.

Whilst one fan pointed out that there is never the same level of scrutiny afforded Manchester City when marginal decisions go in their favour.

The Tactical Times was defending Jürgen Klopp’s men again, insisting that there’s too many blatant lies surrounding the Reds’ success.

One Kopite made the solid point that VAR decisions don’t effect us like other teams because when they go against us we still find a way to win.

Brian McFadden was magnanimous, saying that it’s getting ridiculous the lengths other fans are going to to explain away the Reds’ success.
