Nonsense.

If it wasn't for VAR, Sterling's last minute effort would have stood.

Maybe it should have stood?

Why? He was offside.

Whether by a few inches or ten yards, he was, according to the laws of the game, offside.

The standard co commentator measurement of a marginal decision "he was half a yard offside"

Was he though?  The footage BT sport showed made him look offside but also ignored the line they used wasnít correct clearly ignoring the defenders elbow. In addittion they didnít seem to have any correction for the fact their cameras werenít in line like have been seen in some games the last two seasons. Iím not suggesting he was onside and perhaps the VAR officials had better coverage and lines but on the basis of what Iíve seen Iím not convinced one way or other.

Barcelona won the La Liga title tonight. Messi introduced at half time and scored the only goal of the game v Levante.

Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Vertonghen is in bad shape there.

Spurs looking poor.

That was absolutely disgraceful behaviour from the Spurs medical staff, it was clear that Vertonghen was in no condition to continue. The ref was absolutely correct to question their decision to let him back on. Soccer clearly still has a lot to learn when it comes to head injuries.

He was in bad shape there. Just about managed not to collapse. I havenít been to a premier league in a few years but last one was spurs whoís medical staff let loris back in similar scenario.

Spurs a wee bit disappointing. Moura very greedy. Ali too lazy.

Medical staff handled that Vertonghen incident very poorly.

Ajax just need a draw at home for this underdog story to continue into the final. Tottenham's quarter final win over Manchester City will count for little if they are knocked out by Ajax, tonight playing at home they were poor.  Just 1 shot on target all night and lucky they didn't ship a bigger defeat.

Liverpool had a similar scenario the other week with Fabinho and thankfully learned the lesson from Karius from last years CL final and removed him from the game straight away.  Medical staff in soccer could maybe get some peer learning from their rugby counterparts.

Spurs medical staff have had a right bashing today mostly from people with little or no medical knowledge. I'd sooner wait and see what protocols they did/didn't use. Where soccer currently is at a disadvantage to rugby and the GAA for that matter it that there is no mechanism for a temporary replacement while someone is monitored.
