News Update


Bad refereeing hurts “livelihoods and reputations,” said Wolves manager Gary O’Neil after their loss to Fulham.

O’Neil said that referee Michael Salisbury agreed that giving Wolves the first of two penalties was wrong. He also thinks that four other important decisions went against the visitors.

O’Neil told Sky Sports, “Maybe tonight has finally turned me against VAR.”

“You are having a huge effect on my reputation, the club’s reputation, and people’s ability to make a living.” We should be able to talk about the game instead of the choices, but we can’t.

“I believe it is a very complicated matter.” I’ve always supported VAR, but I believe it is currently causing issues. I believe VAR cost us that one.”

On Monday night, three penalties were given. Nelson Semedo caught Tom Cairney in the area and scored the first goal, giving Fulham a 2-1 lead.

For a long time, VAR agreed with Salisbury that there should be a penalty kick, even though Semedo did touch the ball when he hit Cairney.

An hour later, Tim Ream caught Wolves’ Hwang Hee-chan, who scored to make the score 2-2.

In extra time, Willian’s second penalty, the third of the game, gave Fulham all three points.

When Harry Wilson and Joao Gomes collided in the box, Salisbury at first waved play on. But after the VAR told him to look at the monitor on the field, he changed his mind and gave a penalty.

Also, Carlos Vinicius of Fulham was lucky to only get a yellow card when he stepped up to Max Kilman and hit the center back in the face with his helmet.
