    Thanks for confirming you're not worth conversing with. Not one person has ever said anything close to this.

    That you struggle with something so simple is incredible.

    AMN was MOTM (in the real world rather than Keown's World of Weird) by a country mile.

    1 Arsenal player made a shockingly bad tackle the kind that Killed Diaby. Palace did all game what we knew Palace would do. Why the surprise?

    Surprise comes from the blind eye that was turned when Palace, and particularly Ayew, put in a similar foul and many other fouls without comeback. VAR is utter shit. It's killing football. The ref knew well that Auba was late, not malicious. He saw the incident in real time. He could judge the intensity. He could judge the intent. But he'd let a lot go and he was prepared to let more go. The trouble with VAR is it steps in without reference to the overall game. I'll go along with it being a red - PROVIDED the same standard is applied evenly.

    It's not.

    Agree there were double standards, tompkins should have had two yellows if not a straight red

    It was kinda both tragic and comical watching our players huddled around the ref all turn their heads at the same time at the big screen and wince at the sight of Auba's tackle, LOL! Why it was shown is anyone's guess and really didn't help our cause.

    The refereeing in our last handful of games has been pretty poor in the league. Even in the one we actually won.

    I like Pepe but he was seriously dreadful in this game and really needs to do more off the ball runs. My son AMN is coming of age though.
