A question for you guys out there. During the Carabao Final, an excellent through-ball left Eden Hazard one-on-one with the City keeper, a situation which usually ends up with the ball in the back of the net. Unfortunately, as we are all aware, the idiot linesman raised his flag for offside (which he is not supposed to do when VAR is in operation) . Had play continued, we should have gone 1-0 up and could have 'done a Tottenham' on City and held them off for a deserved victory and meaning the whole Kepa saga would have been avoided. My question is this: Even though the idiot with the flag signalled for offside, should not the ref have ignored this until the play had ended and then referred to VAR for the offside decision?

{Ed002's Note - Yes he should.}

As Sarri mentioned before it took some time getting used to in SerieA aswell so it will take some time in the EPl also. Just gutted but with time i think it will all come good. Might slow down the pace a bit but if the ref does what he is suppose to then i think the game could still flow good. In rugby they have mastered the TV replay and it works perfect. I think with time it will all work out.

I think seeing the flag would’ve put hazard off too, I don’t quite remember but he definitely didn’t run through and finish the chance, he just stopped.

Funny - if it wasn't for Kepa's antics, I think the press would have made a lot more of the two officials potentially costing The Blues the final.
