On the Wolves non-penalty call it’s as much Boly charging his own man as anyway else.
Overturning the red is a fair call. There’s no doubt the foul by Lindelof wipes the player out but I’m struggling to call that as excessive force. Thinking rationally and trying to understand the original call, I can only suggest it’s one of those that looks horrendous from one angle but not as bad when looked at from 180 degrees further around.
Lindelof's tackle was a red for me. It could easily have trapped the opponent's lower leg with a disastrous outcome.
Rashford's, although two footed and ugly, was nowhere near the opponent and so posed no danger. Yellow was fine.
Orange for me as well, meaning I think if I was VAR I'd back either a red or a yellow on the pitch as neither being clearly and obviously wrong.
Without wanting to bring up an old argument again, I think the signalling was far clearer on this one than an incident we discussed a few weeks ago where a yellow was upgraded. Call the player back, cutting the grass gesture to cancel the previous decision, show the yellow card. No need to add confusing by pulling out the red card, everyone knew what was going on.
Yes, this is the strategy in the UK
I think it works far better than the circus of the OFR, but it does lean towards the VAR being the chief referee. Given that the ARs are now just ball boys, It's the direction in which this is all heading anyway
