Son's? Soft penalty imo . Seen similar situations where the verdict has been not enough contact for one but I suppose contact is contact and he was in full pelt. Very surprised it didnt go to VAR tbh.
VAR checked it but ruled "not a clear and obvious error" ie not enough evidence to change the decision.

How can a life ban from all football grounds be policed? Surely not every ground in the country is going to recognise him if he turns up.

he hasn't been banned - not yet anyway. Should be obvious, he hasn't even been identified so how could they ban him?

He has been identified (see Newcastle thread) I think.

Apparantly the cost of VAR in cup games where ties are held at at EPL grounds is over £10k and is billed to both teams.'That VAR money is deducted from the gate receipts amongst other expense, before the money left over is shared 45% for each club and 10% into the central pot to help fund the prize money.So in effect, clubs such as Rochdale and Oxford (as well as Newcastle) have lost out on almost £5,000 each due to VAR, when they played at St James Park....With tickets costing £10 and £5 concessions, you probably had the sales of around 3,000 ticket across the Rochdale and Oxford matches to pay for VAR been used. For clubs at the bottom end who look to the FA Cup as a major chance of an injection of funds, is VAR really value for money in the FA Cup? ' Kieran Maguire, Price of Football

Thats over £100 per hour that Mike Riley's PGMOL are raking in for sitting in a portacabin near Heathrow watching screens.
Footnote: Dont know why but VAR not used at every tue held at an EPL club

Yep. Not only did Liverpool reduce ticket prices for the replay with Shrewsbury because Klopp wouldn't attend, meaning we lost out on gate receipts, we also got a bill for the VAR system that disallowed our fucking goal.

GAH.

Crowds would be low anyway but just think what this did for Shrewsbury's share of the gate money!

Was a sell out actually, so I suppose you could argue it balanced itself out if you're saying it wouldn't have sold out otherwise, but yeah reckon it cost us hundreds of thousands.

Sadly one of the things that probably really counts against the FA Cup is that international football audiences don't really care about it. If audiences in China, South Africa or the US cared about watching say Exeter City or Rochdale play a big name team it would be huge financially but they don't because they don't know who these teams are.

It filled the stadium

I would be a bit pissed off if I was a Shrews fan but the FA decided not to show the game, probably due to Klopp/first team not being there.
Klopp playing kids/reserves was the only reason Shrews got a replay to be fair.

The FA and PL should be scheduling better! Klopp was told to respect the break and he did.

Bit of a shame all round but there it is

maybe it is a valid reason, but there again, maybe it isn't.
For me, all cup ties should be played at 15.00 on a Saturday afternoon, including the final.
I remember FC United last year or year before turned down live Sky coverage of one of their FA Cup ties on a Monday night saying the same thing. The FAs position was if you dont play the fixture at the time Sky want it you are out of the FA Cup.
