first_img😐— Sheffield United (@SheffieldUnited) November 9, 2019 4 Sheffield United are rocked as David McGoldrick has an equaliser ruled out at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for a very marginal offsideCredit: EPARepublic of Ireland striker McGoldrick was finally “robbed” by John Lundstram being adjudged offside in the build-up, sparking bewildered comments on social media such as “absolute joke”.United were trailing undeservedly to Son Heung-Min’s 58th minute opener when McGoldrick, 31, saw his big moment erased.But VAR then confirmed a point for the Blades, via Eric Dier’s own goal fro a George Baldock cross.Many supporters, though, felt McGoldrick’s misery was the final nail for VAR as Twitter put the boot in.The Blades’ themselves tweeted a glum emoji next to an an image that suggested McGoldrick had been ONSIDE.And they also posted: “63′ After a 3 minute delay. VAR rules it out because of an offside toe. No goal. “One fan said: “VAR is destroying the game… Soccer isn’t the most beautiful game anymore.”MARK HALSEY SAYS…If it is taking 3minutes and 47 seconds then it should not be overturned – the technology is not that accurate for marginal decisions like that.You should be able to tell in five to ten seconds. Is this system fit for purpose? At the moment you have to say it isn’t.Fans pay money to see goals and at the moment we are probably seeing good goals ruled out.The buck stops with Mike Riley and the Premier League is being undermined by the implementation of VAR.The camera angles we are seeing need to be parallel with the offside incident because that was not the case for Sheffield United’s ruled-out goal and it creates confusion.Also, the offside  occurred in the previous phase of play so it should not have been checked.
