Wily Boly having a long talk with Mariner - be afraid, be very afraid Andre

A point better than we got last season so that is a positive.

No rule is wank. Accidental is foul or it’s not a foul. You can’t have it been a foul in some scenarios, but not others.

Apologies for the c&p

VAR is wank

The new law on handball in a goalscoring situation is wank

The interpretation was correct, but please don't anyone tell me from a fans experience perspective it's the same as an offside flag you missed when the ball hit the net

Good point though

Utterly robbed. I can’t get over that.

It’s a very good point. A tough away game, robbed by VAR decision and Mariner doing everything he could to go against us. It was laughable by the end.

Some really good performances there. Boly immense, Rui a calming influence. Forwards looked sharp but should have done better with their opportunities.

0-0 isn’t a bad result, but we deserved better. The VAR was bad, but Marriner was beyond awful.

We probably tested Schmeichel more than they tested Rui

They had possession, but no real penetration - no real hangover from the long trip to Armenia, but it's still early doors & neither side was fully sharp

Decent performance and good point robbed of all 3 by a shit rule and technology that will ruin the game of football. Said it last season and from what I've seen in the first round of fixtures nothing has changed my mind. They are happy to use it to rule out goals for the hand ball but when Leicester did it further back nothing given, and this.is the type of grey area it will cause. What if 5 passes later they score after that? How is that fair ?

On a positive - Travelling 6000+ miles wasn't a problem for us so well done the team behind the scenes who managed that trip and the players.

The handball rule is bullshit. I fully get them wanting to stop goals scored via the hand, accident or not that is fair enough but accidental hand ball in the build up is utter shit. If you are decided that ball to hand is an offence when it leads to a goal then any handball anywhere on the pitch, accident or not, is an offense.

If the rules disallowed that goal, the rules are wrong.

Quite an impressive display as a whole, and Boly was a tower, but the decision totally ruined the game as a contest.
