Very good VARing in United-Reading. Fred was offside when he scored but Mata was clattered after the pass was played so it was pulled back for a penalty. Good call.

My first view of the replay was “looks offside, great call by the lino, wouldn’t be surprised if they give a pen for clattering Mata”

They gave a pen... I wasn’t surprised :whistle:

Good use of VAR although I would like to hear what the refs are saying like they do in Rugby. Would have explained why they were taking so long.

It needs to be a far more open process with the replays on the big screens etc too.

The VAR decision in the Burnley game is crazy. The ref literally stops the player during his run up to take the penalty to pull the decision back for an offside.

United v Reading is probably the least exciting fixture of any round in any competition. I long for the day when United don’t get shown on tv in an FA Cup tie.

I doubt I’ll ever see it...or not see it?

Reading outplayed United and we're unlucky to use. For all the feelgood factor, I think they're in for a bucket of cold water when they start playing decent teams.

We are good enough to give whatever defence they put out a real pasting. Their attackers are rejuvenated but their defence remains just as dodgy.

The last time we won the cup was on my birthday. 18th May 1991. The final is 18th May this year. So is my birthday.
