Watching SOU-BUR. Surprised to see the BUR keeper in yellow, same as the referees.

Son finally gets one past the AVL keeper. Some great saves before that.

Busy soccer week, as half of Final 16 Champions League first-leg matches this week and first leg of all Europa League matches, while MCI host WHU in make-up match from some named storm (stupidly doing this in Britain, Ireland, and Netherlands, too).

I didn't see this happen to Son, wondering when it did:

Says he played with the broken arm vs AVL.

TOT play CHE, WOL, and MUN in EPL between now and 3/15.

Chelsea got hosed by VAR yesterday. First, ruling against Maguire that looks incredibly close to Son getting red, goes in favor of ManU (Maguire later scores). Next after scoring a goal, it's reversed due to a foul. The foul, player getting pushed by ManU player (Fred) pushes ManU player in front of him. Really couldn't avoid. Should have been foul on Fred. Offside call on second Chelsea goal was offside by a smidge. Tough day for Chelsea. Don't care either way, but VAR is certainly not making officiating more consistent and better.

Dude was offside. So, better.

I think the difference between Son and Maguire is that Son's reaction was not knee-jerk (pun pending). And I like Son. Maguire reacted to the CHE player possibly landing on him.

Didn't see the push. From the accounts I've read, Fred pushed CHE player into MUN player. So, possibly a foul (depends on when Fred pushed: before or after the kick).

So 2 out of 3. That's an improvement.

VAR is making officiating more consistent and better, but at the cost of waiting. And that is what most of the complaining is about.

WHU having a rough couple of weeks. Have to play MCI and LIV in midweek matches while relegation competition rests.
