Wolves had a late Anfield winner ruled out for offside and as those in the VAR room had their rulers and protractors out trying to reason who and why the goal was offside, everyone inside the stadium has little idea what was going on.
Speaking about the lack of clarity on this issue, Eni Aluko said: “These are all state of the art stadiums with screens everywhere, just show it on the screen why the decision was made and it eliminates all the questions”.
It’s hard to do this in our home as there are no big screens present, then there’s also the issue of getting a message across because it’s always likely to upset one set of supporters and could lead to more problems than it solves.
Those present inside the grounds when decisions are made are often the last to know what is going on but it’s hard to think of a way that this can be safely solved, so maybe blissful ignorance is the best case scenario – for now.
