Re: Andy Robertson

There is nothing to discuss. Joey is in front of Robertson, stretches and plays the ball and Robertson manufactures the contact by running into Joey's legs. This is happening more and more in the modern game and is just an attempt to 'win' a penalty by conning the officials.

Re: Premier League confirms wrong penalty decisions in all Thursday games

Offside is the only decision which VAR can correctly rule on because it is black and white
Fouls, tackles etc. are all down to opinions both on the field and off it.
