“The PGMOL should be banned from officiating for us. That wasn’t a penalty at. The video they displayed wasn’t the right one. How was that a hand ball? We are being robbed every single time”-Man United fans exposes The VAR on how they wanted to take Man United out of the competition as they are all making the same point after last minute penalty decision

Manchester United supporters are echoing a common sentiment following the controversial penalty decision against them during the FA Cup semi-final against Coventry.


Initially leading 3-0 with goals from Scott McTominay, Harry Maguire, and Bruno Fernandes, the Red Devils found themselves facing an unexpected turn of events as Coventry staged a comeback. Ellis Simms and Callum O’Hare’s strikes narrowed the gap, setting the stage for a tense finale at Wembley.


In the dying moments, referee Rob Jones awarded Coventry a penalty after Aaron Wan-Bissaka handled the ball in the area. Despite VAR’s review upholding the on-field decision, Haji Wright converted the penalty, sending Coventry fans into jubilation and forcing extra time.


Many United fans expressed frustration over the decision, highlighting what they perceived as inconsistency compared to a similar incident involving Jack Grealish in a previous match. One supporter lamented the situation, noting the similarity between Wan-Bissaka’s handball and Grealish’s, which went unpunished. Another fan criticized the refereeing for its apparent inconsistency, while others questioned the difference between the two incidents.


The prevailing sentiment among supporters is confusion and frustration regarding the perceived inconsistency in refereeing decisions.
