The football world is in a state of shock this evening after a Liverpool goal was ruled out by VAR in their match against West Ham United.

The offside decision for Sadio Mané’s tap-in meant that the 4-2 scoreline quickly returned to 3-2, and a ‘thorough investigation’ has been promised by The FA, UEFA, FIFA and the International Criminal Court in The Hague.

A source within Liverpool Football Club said, ‘We are outraged.’

‘When you are playing a world class team like West Ham, it is hard to tolerate this technology being used for its intended purpose in its intended manner.’

Meanwhile, it has been confirmed that a special evening for West Ham supporters will be held in the Summer at the Circus Tavern called ‘The Night What When We Only Lost By One Goal At Anfield.’

A selection of the players will discuss the match at length, with the event compered by Tony Cottee or whatever.

Memorabilia will be raffled off in aid of the 1966 Trust, a charitable organisation that works all over the world to make sure that anyone who doesn’t know that it was actually West Ham who won the 1966 World Cup does indeed realise that it was actually West Ham who won the 1966 World Cup.

The FA has also hinted that The Hammers may be relegated to League 1 in the event that they finish in the bottom three, mainly because football chiefs are ‘sick of this whole yo-yo EPL – Championship shit.’
