What's your view on the VAR crisis between Liverpool and Tottenham, who did you think is at fault?

VAR is now at a “crisis point”, according to pundit and former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher.

Liverpool had a Luis Diaz goal incorrectly ruled out for offside during Saturday’s Premier League defeat at Tottenham due to miscommunication between VAR Darren England and on-field referee Simon Hooper.

The match was goalless at the time of the incident, with the Reds – who were eventually reduced to nine men – going on to lose 2-1 to an own goal from Joel Matip deep into stoppage time.


Jamie Carragher says the officials responsible for incorrectly confirming the decision to disallow Luis Diaz’s goal at Tottenham “panicked” and “froze” once they realised their error.



It appears that the VAR officials made a significant human error when they failed to overturn Luis Diaz’s wrongly disallowed goal in the match between Tottenham and Liverpool.

The PGMOL (Professional Game Match Officials Limited) admitted that a clear and obvious factual error occurred during the match, and the goal should have been awarded through VAR intervention.

The VAR error has caused frustration and disappointment for Liverpool players and fans, with some losing faith in the VAR system.


BREAKING: Liverpool have made a formal request to PGMOL for the audio conversations between the officials from Saturday’s defeat at Tottenham.


Nothing should happen other than finding a way to ensure these mistakes don’t happen…wolves had a bad decision against them,city scored a goal that was given but was clearly offside,utd against arsenal garnachos goal was onside and countless other games or let’s just say every weekend so far there has been issues…so nothing fixes those games they moved on to the next game and so should Liverpool it’s happened it wasn’t spurs fault just have to learn how to stop this technology from ruinning the game simples


We need to see and hear what VAR officials are saying like in rugby and cricket. Why is it all secret in football? Very few issues in rugby and cricket as you can hear ‘live’ what the on field and off field officials are saying as they replay the ‘incident’.


Match of the Day what happens NOW… Given the profile of the premiership and the constant issues with the current set-up of VAR…

The FIFA World Cup used the ball chip with 12 dedicated tracking cameras and artificial intelligence software FIFA reduced the chance of human error which was considered a success.

the semi-automated off side FIFA used during the Women’s World Cup would of identified and dealt automatically with the Luiz Diaz offside on the weekend.


As Manchester United we are used to it, move on so that next time you can also support us😁

They need to stop crying and get on with it!! Not the first club to be hard done to by VAR.


Give Liverpool a replay , and Spurs get to replay Champions League final again! We don’t have Kane now so we start 1-0 up. I mean come on there are injustices in sport we all have to live with the Referees decision !


Liverpool’s commitment to transparency and fair play is commendable. Requesting audio conversations with officials shows a dedication to maintaining the integrity of the game. It’s a positive step towards ensuring fairness and accountability in football.


Liverpool gained 9 points from VAR decisions last season :tv:

The second-highest amount in the Premier League :chart_with_upwards_trend:


Those Who values justice and fairness must concede that Premier League officials are among the worst in the world. This is not a Liverpool-specific issue; rather, it will benefit all clubs. There is no reason to bring up such issues again if your club has already been robbed without raising any awareness in the past. The statement from Liverpool is commendable, and we all should stand for justice.

Put Rivalries To The Side , This will Only Continue If Nothing Is Done! Your Team Will Most Definitely :100: Have An Incorrect Decision Against them This Season.


:rotating_light: The PGMOL are split over releasing audio recordings between referee and VAR after Luis Diaz’s controversially disallowed goal.



Liverpool midfielder Alexis Mac Allister could reportedly be facing a ban after he controversially posted on social media about Tottenham playing with 12 men in their game at the weekend.

This is a clear dig at the referee and accusations of bias are bound to be taken very seriously, so it remains to be seen if Mac Allister could now be set to miss a long run of games for the Reds.

The Argentina international played for Liverpool in their 2-1 defeat at Spurs, with Luis Diaz’s disallowed goal the biggest talking point.

However, Liverpool also had to play with nine men after red cards for both Curtis Jones and Diogo Jota at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Mac Allister’s frustration is understandable, but there’s also surely no way he’s going to get away with accusing referee Simon Hooper of acting against his club.


The audio of the VAR discussion which led to a Luis Díaz goal being incorrectly ruled out for offside is set to be released once PGMOL has completed its internal review and shared the findings with Liverpool.


:rotating_light: 𝗢𝗙𝗙𝗜𝗖𝗜𝗔𝗟: Statement from PGMOL :point_down:


Jürgen Klopp wants Spurs vs. Liverpool to be replayed:

“The only outcome should be a replay…probably won’t happen. The argument against that will be if we open that gate everyone will ask for it…But something like that as far as I can remember has never happened. That’s why it should be a replay."


Jurgen Klopp wants to see Liverpool and Tottenham play again after VAR’s mistake :eyes:


:rotating_light: There is no chance the Premier League will actually grant Liverpool a replay.

That was the position in the immediate aftermath on the Tottenham game and it has not changed.
