Surely has to be told to have a look again at it.

didnt get him with his high leg like it looked in real time it was the trailing leg which was on the ground and not studs up

terrible decision. Almost felt sorry for AU if they hadn’t stitched us up to many times before

Looked to me like he got him with his high leg.
Even if not...that would've only missed him by inches. Come in with studs at knee height, asking for a red.
And the left leg - studs came back up after he kicked the ball. So, 2 feet, 1 at knee height, both studs raised...yeah, it's a red.

can some with a better understanding of the rules .explain why this is no goal.
they say it's for encroachment . i don't understand what they mean or why it's no goal .
Law 13 - Free Kicks:

If, when a free kick is taken, an attacking team player is less than 1 m (1 yd) from a ‘wall’ formed by three or more defending team players, an indirect free kick is awarded

All players know this - the 1 yard wall was brought in a few years back, though it was mainly to stop the problems that come up with the jostling at a wall. It's the correct decision.

Hiroshi Ibusuki's red card has been overturned.
My understanding of the criteria used for rescinding a red card was there had to be no offence worthy of even a yellow card and it was a very difficult level to reach especially in the VAR era. Things like mistaken identity, getting tricked by simulation, etc.. Rightly or wrongly that was the bar and that was that. Now they've backflipped on something that could have been a yellow what does that say and how do they apply consistency to it?

IMO this says a lot about our officials and none of it is positive. Are they going to cave to pressure? Treat star players with kid gloves? Where's the spine and leadership? Where's the accountability? They've opened pandora's box now and it can only lead to more inconsistency..

TBH Caceres should have been on a card for a myriad of tackles before he was tackled. I wasn't paying attention and saw him on the ground and thought someone had tried to pay him back.

As it was I think it was lucky to be a foul yet alone a yellow or a red. Caceres was way late to the action and went looking for contact and then made the most of it.

This is the same judiciary that thinks slipping into somebody warrants 3 weeks, while a leaping studs-first kick to the face is 2.

Usually the judiciary take longer into the season to show what a farce they are. They've outdone themselves.

Not to mention, the FA have literally come out and publicly apologised for red cards we've received in the past while choosing to uphold them.

And there is why Arzani won't be going to the world cup. Tries for goal from a set piece when it should have been a cross. Selfish.

I don’t care but I would be blowing up if it happened to us. Definitely no penalty and definitely not a red. VAR is a joke helped us today but seriously I would rather cop a bad decision from a ref who has a split second to make a call then a bad decision from a idiot who is watching replays slow motion and still gets it wrong
