What on earth was with the VAR offside delays? None of them should have taken more than a few seconds to review. One took 3 nearly minutes. (And no added time in the second half - don't say nothing was at stake, City could have set a record score.)
I can only assume they had a temporary technology issue, can't think of any other reason as it was pretty obvious.
Standard practice for seniors referees in cup games to kill it bang on 90, or add at most one minute. Goal difference doesn't matter, and the law of sod dictates that if you do unnecessarily play added time something will kick off and you'll end up regretting it.
A. It's the rules.
B. I can see a team that needs to score having several minutes taken off the time that should be added on for VAR.
C. I paid to watch football, not sit looking at a referee for 3 minutes.
D. We always complain about UEFA and with good reason.
