Yesterday I think VAR did us a favour. I think there were 2 instances for penalty shouts which the referee did not give. Instead he allowed VAR to review and they were both turned down or in other words the referee passed the buck to the technology.

I wonder if VAR wasn't operating would the referee have given them? The big boys do have a history of getting soft decisions so I was happy how VAR operated yesterday.

That's a good point Badger. Interestingly though at the England rugby yesterday the ref overruled the VAR on foul play in a lineout and awarded the try to England. I do think football will become worse if the ref passes the buck on every decision as it will slow the game too much.

Let's be honest - we deserved a break but were really VERY lucky.
On another day at least another penalty would have been given .. but the Gods were with us for once.
Let's rejoice in our good fortune.

One big cloud on the horizon:
Luka Milivojevic - seems a disaster waiting to happen, lucky not to be red carded this week and last. His contribution has been poor, the penalty he gave was cynical but, lucky for us, a post came to our aid.

And one bright cloud:
Gary Cahill, the leader our present captain is not although he too was fortunate to get just a yellow.

For today what's not to love about var. Man u fans outraged by couple of decisions they might have got but didn't. I Am happy to laugh at them and remind that this how it will be now that refs are going to be more accountable. It won't and decisions will still go to big clubs but seeing their little irate faces is cracking.
But it gets better Brighton had a goal disallowed through var again and Locadia missed a sitter which if it had not been for var would have been flagged for offside. It wasn't and Brighton supporters are going mental at the miss. Happy days

I have read a number of match reports from the tabloids this morning. In case you missed it apparently Palace were involved in a game at Old Trafford although you might have missed that as the coverage was all about Man United.

This is why I hate the big clubs. When they win the media falls over themselves to talk about how great the club / manager / players are. When they lose rather than talk about the other team the direction of the story is "big club in crisis let's discuss".

Hodgson had a plan yesterday and it worked, yes we got lucky with some of the incidents but considering we have had zero luck at Old Trafford for decades I think we were due a bit. However very little is being said about Hodgson's tactics and team selection, rather it's about what their manager and players did wrong.

By the way we may have only had about 30% possession yesterday but Man United had the same number of shots on target as we did 3. Well played lads and sorry I wasn't more confident before the game.

So true!... Even the sports news roundup on the BBC started with the fact that Rashford had suffered racial abuse on social media for missing a penalty.... then after a bit more blurb about the rest of Utd, they finally mentioned "in their 2-1 defeat by Crystal Palace" almost as an afterthought.

The same conversation arises everytime we beat a top 6 team, we should all know by now that they're never going to give much thought and time to lowly palace when they could be talking about pogbas shoes or Salahs hair or what de bruyne had for dinner, clearly more important topics to be covered.

Just recognise there are millions of people who say Manchester United are the team they 'support' and palace fans, considerably less. Of course the media are going to focus on them, they want to sell newsprint/advertising and have to appeal to the masses.

We're doing all right, most of us like most of what Palace is all about.

We were very lucky yesterday. Let's just hope we haven't used it all up. Last year I certainly feel we were very unlucky, at least until Xmas, so perhaps just getting what we were due. Cahill's and Ayew's performances were real plusses other that that I think the rest were pretty poor.

As for 'getting the better of the decisions':

1. Imagine the 2 so-called penalty shouts being awarded as spot-kicks AGAINST ManUre. The media would become apoplectic about 'soft' penalties being awarded.
2. As far as I'm aware, both 'shouts' were reviewed by VAR, so there's an end to it, surely?
3. Anyone else spot the ManUre no. 2 grab a good handful of Jeff's shirt, to make sure he didn't get to the ball during that passage of play when we were 1-0 up? The incident where JS ended up on the deck and Wilf's shot was saved at the near post? A penalty in my eyes.

Obviously a rubbish result last week but why do we get 45 pages on the match thread and this week the polar opposite and we are 20 pages less (so far ) is this a sign of the modern football fan I wonder.
Well done the lads

Can we get a new manager for home games only?
