I've seen Man Utd players try to stay on their feet in situations like that countless of times and not be awarded anything. It's a refereeing problem, it truly is, but it's weird how nobody cares until those situations happens to us and not against us. Other teams don't try to stay on their feet and they get rewarded for it by refs, it's about time we go down more easily. Tired of United being on the receiving end of those decisions and with VAR, it's more unlikely that refs can get away with weird subconscious decisions.It looks like a foul but it also looks like a breeze could knock down pogba.
As angering as it could be, I agree that it's funny how pathetic these grown men, old men, are.. Trying to do their bit to make refs think twice before they give us anything, or else they'll be ridiculed on their show. I mean these shows are not 100% pre scripted like a sitcom but if it wasn't live tv, it would be. It's often semi-scripted not only by basic talking points but actual narratives to cover, probably based on information and statistics supplied from the corresponding newspaper outlet of that station.
It's quite telling when you see Nigel De Jong struggling to balance his own opinion in a way that fits with the narrative that he is supposed to continue hammering down on. Just look at him, saying 'anything is unlikely to be overturned by VAR when it comes to United' then looks for a pat on the back from the host with the most It's really weird and funny, but also scary when you know that United is always being made an example of in these sorts of situations where refs are terrible on purpose against us following days like that, just to avoid being targeted and lambasted by the media for trying to do their job properly.
