Lingard giving it large on VAR

If it hasn’t already, VAR has often proved itself entirely unfathomable but sadly there will be no putting the genie back in the bottle – it’s here to stay.

And once again when those overseeing it tell a referee to look at his pitch side TV screen we all know what the outcome will be as was again the case at the London Stadium yesterday – a red card.

It happened at Fulham to Tomas Soucek and this time around it was Fabian Balbuena who became a victim as we went under 1-0 to Chelsea.

And honest Jesse Lingard  made it absolutely clear that he was deeply unhappy with the whole technological drama surrounding what is basically a very simple game.

After David Moyes had gone on the record in describing the red card as a “rubbish decision” Jesse had no hesitation in backing the managers view big time.

He took to Instagram to make his position clear saying: “Heads up and keep fighting. Still five games left P.S VAR IS A JOKE #believe,” read Lingard’s caption.

  1. He’s right VAR was a joke if you can’t kick a ball to defend then there would be at least 6 reds in every game , funny how a so called big team for the decision. I know that sounds paranoid but happens to often real punishment for a team to be so arrogant & sign up for Super League . Rant over a bit upset today I really feel for the lads . Rice responded to that tweet bu J Lings said something like and I’m paraphrasing ‘ Five finals to go bro! We got this.” Looks like we will keep fighting , I love this squad attitude and fight , never give up attitude. That is the West Ham Way ! Never give up , the lads know it’s in our own hands . I fancy the lads will try and win every game left and earn the right to play in CL . I can’t see Chelsea doing that , I feel it’s our destiny , I believe in our teal , come on lads , COYI ⚒
