VAR Controversially Rules Out Wolves' Opening Goal Vs Leicester City
VAR have controversially ruled out Willy Boly's opening goal for Wolves against Leicester City this evening.
Boly headed home to seemingly give his side the lead but VAR decided to rule the strike out.
Pedro Neto was judged to have been offside by inches earlier in the passage of play much to the dismay of the Molineux faithful.
Check out the decision below.
Boly thought he had the opener...
But Diogo Jota was offside in the build-up to the goal

Fans on social media were quick to react to the decision believing it was incredibly harsh.
This is what was called offside for #Wolves. Sure, the trailing foot of Neto is technically past the line, but it has absolutely nothing to do with the play. Yuck VAR pic.twitter.com/eZY8NvOPlF

If that's the best VAR can do, bin it. They've had half-a-season now to act with a semblance of common sense on decisions like this. That was utterly ridiculous. Offside by a stud's width? When he's standing by the corner flag?

What a waste of time this is becoming. People will stop watching. And everybody will lose.

I thought var was going to be used for obvious mistakes not to inspect every foul every possible offside etc!

The game had been a drab affair prior to the VAR controversy and the game is 0-0 at the break.
Both sides had chances but failed to convert.
Do you think the offside call was harsh or the correct decision?
