    Justin was actually fouled by Chris Wood ... if he'd pushed a Liverpool or United defender like that, I suspect the goal would have been ruled out ... he's still very young and will learn ... and will be a beast when he fills out properly.

    Justin was caught in a mismatch against Wood at the far post, so all credit to Burnley for engineering that situation. The good thing was that he didn't let it affect his game. Just love his attitude. He might not turn out into the best player we've ever had, but what a team player.

    On their opening goal, whether it was a foul or not, the ball clearly struck Wood's arm. Have VAR relaxed the rules on handball leading to a goal this season?

    The actual rule says this:
    • ‘accidental’ handball by an attacking player (or team-mate) is only penalised if it occurs ‘immediately’ before a goal or clear goal-scoring opportunity
    so I can only assume the word 'immediately' is the problem here..

    It couldn't have been any more immediate!

    I fully agree! The trouble is with 'immediate' being in quotes like that, they have simply covered their backs and can interpret tt however they like! :steam:

    It is this daft T shirt rule - will create far more controversy

    How are they going to define it if players are wearing long sleeves?

    Personally I didn’t object to that goal standing. Probably in the modern game by the letter of the law there was definitely one maybe two offences but I tend to ask myself how I would feel if it was up the other end and if we scored a goal like that and it got ruled out I don’t think I’d be the only one pissed off by it so just glad it didn’t affect the result. I think the bigger issue is Justin’s learning curve and that he uses the experience of being bullied by a big, physical team to his advantage for future.

    Can just see VAR placing a line on a players arm to judge whether it would have hit a T-shirt

    Have to disagree on that one John ... if Slimani or Ulloa had shoved a defender like that to get to the ball I would accept it was a foul if the ref blowed ... you are not really allowed to raise your hands to an opponent ... never mind shove him out the way <laugh>

    Fair enough. As I say, I recognise that I would be annoyed so can’t let myself be biased when it went against us. I suppose I’m thinking from a defenders point of view that he should get his positioning better and not been bullied out of it but then I was not a defender when I played and was the devious little winger who would be putting the unseen niggles out there <cheers> same with Nacho’s disallowed goal at Norwich earlier in the year, I felt it was harsh so I’m not feeling aggrieved about Wood’s the other day. I do think Justin was awesome going forwards though and links very well with Barnes

    Looks like Diabate might be off to Trabzonspor...

    ... and Rennes might be back in for Slimani...

    Diabate.... one minute we thought he was the answer to our prayers after a debut performance against a third tier side; the next he'd vanished, never to be seen again! How transient are a footballer's fortunes.

    Wtf is with all these injuries! We used to get next to none due to the medical and sports science team being so good. Is it Rodgers training regimes? It seems that same with Ricardo, Ndidi got injured but was not brought off probably exaggerating both as well as Ndidi and Maddison being rushed back last season and making things worse.
    Ive been impressed with how Rodgers has got the team to bounce back in the first two games after last season but it does seem concerning that we suddenly have lots of injuries and then not taking them seriously...

    at least the midfield is currently overloaded with ready made replacements in form. Mendy, Praet, Choudhury (if required)
    although the sooner we get the back 4 settled the better methinks

    Is Evans back on Sunday? Hopefully the cup counted as one of his 3 match ban. I did read somewhere though, that he is injured!! If not, Evans for Ndidi I can live with.
