'I don't know the rules any more' - rule changes fail to eradicate controversy.
New rules and new technology were supposed to reduce the number of controversial incidents in the Premier League, but players and managers appeared to be just as frustrated with refereeing decisions after a number of incidents on Saturday.
Manchester City had a goal ruled out for handball in their defeat at Tottenham, Aston Villa saw a late penalty decision overturned via VAR in their loss to Brighton, while similar incidents cost West Brom at both ends of the pitch as they were beaten 1-0 at Manchester United.https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/55031796What they say about VAR
Former Manchester United defender and Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville
: "[Referees] look like they have been programmed like robots. They are briefed like mad, they are programmed to the nth degree, they are frightened to death."
Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho
: "We're going in a direction that's really bad for the beautiful game, the game that everybody fell in love with."
Former Tottenham and Newcastle midfielder and Match of the Day pundit Jermaine Jenas
: "The players and managers have been unbelievable in mentally getting over these hurdles that VAR has thrown at them. It's supposed to help the game, and it's making it far worse."https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/55160134#:~:text=In%20a%20poll%20for%20BBC,it%20has%20made%20football%20worse.Gary Lineker
