Sheffield United: Club’s VAR post prompts frustrated fan reactions

Sheffield United: Club’s VAR post prompts frustrated fan reactions - Sheffield United

Loads of Sheffield United fans have been reacting to a post from the Blades’ official Twitter account showing pictures of the first-team celebrating goals disallowed by VAR. 

Due to the ongoing pandemic, clubs have been trying to find ways to keep supporters entertained during the nationwide lockdown, with many posting funny montages and reaction tweets to pass the time.

Since its Premier League inauguration at the start of the season, the video assistant referee has become a controversial hot topic, and has proven to be a regular thorn in Chris Wilder’s side throughout the campaign so far.

Wilder’s team are currently seventh in the table, tied with Wolverhampton Wanderers on 43 points, two points clear of Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur, and just behind Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United, with a game still in hand.

Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs notably benefited from one of the worst calls in the English top flight last year at the expense of the South Yorkshire outfit. David McGoldrick thought he had scored a famous equalizer against the Lilywhites at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, only for the Stockley Park officials to outrageously overrule the goal, as John Lundstram’s toe was ruled to be offside (talkSPORT).

It is hardly surprising many SUFC supporters are still dismayed by the decisions they’ve received up until now, with one angry fan lamenting the “stupid technology,” and another expressing he is “gutted for Didz,” – a nickname for McGoldrick.

Take a look at some of the frustrated reactions down below…
