FA Cup Coventry vs Man Utd

Loving it! Very impressive sea of sky blue. Despite the embarrassing thrashing I liked the visit to Coventry, they seem a proper club.
 
That is the narrowest overturn of a goal I have ever seen. Offside by a tenth of a toenail?
 
That’s not truly offside- offside should be the whole player a foot or so ahead, not a margin too small for the human eye to detect, that gives no advantage to the attackers. The problem here isn’t really VAR itself, it’s the overly pedantic way it’s used.

Not sure, it looked more offside in real time, VAR seemed to make it look closer than it was.
Anyway, can't have teams like Coventry winning, time to scrap the FA Cup altogether

It is a cancer on the game the way it is applied
 
Has the person in charge of stopping the footage to judge the exact moment of the offside got it spot on? There has to be an element of doubt so how can we be sure he's not inside? It's too close to call, or it should be!
