‘The Offside Lines Weren’t Straight’ – BT Panel Discuss Mental VAR Decision During Manchester United Vs Huddersfield

There was a baffling moment of VAR madness during Manchester United’s victory over Huddersfield on Saturday evening.

Manchester United defeated Huddersfield in the FA Cup on Saturday evening after two well-taken goals from Romelu Lukaku. However, in the aftermath of United’s victory, all anyone can talk about is a phenomenally baffling moment that followed a VAR consultation before halftime.

A wonderful ball from Ashley Young found Juan Mata in the box and the Spaniard finished in a tidy manner rounding the keeper before rolling the ball into an empty net.

However, although initial replays suggested the former Chelsea man was onside, a VAR consultation ruled out the goal using a line that was clearly not straight to evaluate the decision.

Discussing the decision at halftime, the BT panel went to town on the ineptitude of the VAR technology repeatedly describing the entire incident and the ruling on it as ‘a shambles’.

‘The line needs to be straight, that line’s all wobbly. How can you possibly have that to work out whether it’s offside or not?’

Check out Paul Scholes and Robbie Savage discussing the hugely controversial moment in full below.
