Crystal Palace: Lots of fans react to Townsend’s comments on VAR after Bamford offside

Crystal Palace: Lots of fans react to Townsend’s comments on VAR after Bamford offside - Crystal Palace News

Many football fans are not happy with Crystal Palace winger Andros Townsend following his latest comments about VAR whilst he was speaking on talkSPORT today.

Palace took the early lead against Leeds in the 12th minute during their game at the weekend thanks to a Scott Dann header. This goal looked to have been cancelled out in the 18th minute by Patrick Bamford, who slotted home with a delightful chip after a clever through ball. However, VAR decided that the goal was offside, with the striker’s deemed to be offside after using his arm to point where he wanted a pass to go.

Townsend, who was on the pitch when this happened, has spoken out and even though he says he ‘sympathises’ with Bamford, he believes the decision was correct with the current offside laws.

The decision was very tight, and Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa should definitely feel frustrated following the decision. Many supporters have gone to disagree with the winger, saying: ‘Of course he’s going to say that. The decision was in favour of his team! It’s a ridiculous thing to come out and say.’

Here’s how fans of a range of clubs reacted to Townsend after these comments:
