Re: Today’s football 16th May

Atleti cutting it fine again. Can’t help but feel that Simeone doesn’t help the composure of his players with his touch line antics. Anyway they’ve scraped it 2-1, Suarez the saviour.

How was that disallowed! The keeper would never have saved it even without the WBA player infront of him.
Surely not the job of var to determine whether a goalkeeper can or can’t reach a shot. Fact is the offside chap was clearly obstructing Alison’s view , so I reckon the correct decision.
