Mike Parry fumes as Conor Coady goal disallowed in Everton v Liverpool Premier League clash
Mike Parry was not a fan of the VAR decision to rule out Conor Coady’s second-half goal for Everton against Liverpool on Saturday.
After an endless onslaught, the Toffees took what looked to be a deserving lead, only for it to be marginally ruled out because he looked slightly offside.
At full-time both sides shared the spoils with it being one of the most entertaining 0-0s in recent Premier League history.
Via Twitter, the Everton shareholder did not mince his words as he wrote, “What the bloody hell are the Football Association doing about the ridiculous interpretation of the Offside rule by the referees they control .. There was supposed to be a new understanding this season that the attacking team should be given the advantage in marginal decisions.”
Parry makes perfectly valid points here and we cannot believe how this goal was ruled out.
VAR is not always definitive so they decided to give the benefit of doubt to the attacking players especially when they’re not unfairly advantaged by that situation.
Coady was clearly in line with the defender and they had to take two minutes to prove that his shoulder was offside which is absolutely shocking.
Frank Lampard has every right to be fuming as nobody gave the Toffees a chance going into this game and they dominated Liverpool.
We don’t often say this but they deserved to win the Merseyside derby and silence the away end once and for all.
However, it was the Everton fans the happiest at full time as their side has done their bit to derail Liverpool’s title hopes if there are any still left.
