Episode 1612: 3pm Frenzy, Pep Points Finger, Bizarro-VAR, Deconstructing Harry
Saturday saw probably the most heartbreaking come-from-behind win of Pep Guardiola’s career, as City returned to their dressing room only to hear that Liverpool had scored a late winner of their own – but were the City manager’s supposed comments about Mané’s diving misreported?
Mané didn’t really dive, of course, as VAR should have decided – and no, we can’t avoid talking about VAR forever – it’s clear now almost everyone has now turned against it, we discuss what’s going wrong and why.
Pep Guardiola with a less than subtle dig at Sadio Mane: “Sometimes he’s diving, sometimes he has this talent to score incredible goals in the last minute. He’s a talent. Next week we go to Anfield to try to play them.” (BBC)
