What's everyone's opinion on Bournemouth considering legal action over Hawkeye ghost goal. I've no legal knowledge, so not sure how this would play out. Surely, Hawkeye would have some caveat in the contract saying that they cannot guarantee 100% accuracy.

{Ed002's Note - Bournemouth cannot succeed with legal action under the validity of results acceptance that the PL clubs sign up for. They have lawyers looking in to this but as there as not been "significant" breach of any rules there is no case to answer.}

Haha I’ve just posted the same.

Be interesting to see what the table might look like if all VAR interventions were suddenly ruled out. Just out of bizarre curiosity!

Their lawsuit will be DOA: Dead On Arrival.

Honestly it’s pathetic. The season is a marathon and not a sprint. BFC are relegated next side they failed to amass enough points across the other 37 games.

28 Jul 2020 14:44:41
I think they're crossing a line.

28 Jul 2020 14:45:30
They will be suing refs next for incorrect decisions. Howard Webb could receive an avalanche of backdated complaints.

28 Jul 2020 14:37:30
Thanks for the answer ed.

28 Jul 2020 15:20:45
I have no idea about the legal case but I think their grievance is fair. Based on the fact that on this occasion it was a failing if the systems operation that led to an incorrect call. We can live with a refs bad call because that is an up for everyone. But Hawkeye just simply not working? Nah can't have that and I think it is fair to complain. What an outcome is, I'd not. expect them to have the relegation over turned lol.

28 Jul 2020 15:50:52
I cannot believe the var ref didn't get that one.

28 Jul 2020 15:56:29
Desperation makes you lose sight of logic and common sense.

28 Jul 2020 18:08:50
Faith in works, I don’t think it was a malfunction of the system it was that every one of it’s camera’s (7 I think) were obscured. I would think that that being the case, ie it was a limitation of the system rather than the system actually being faulty doesn’t really give them much to complain about in law.
I could be wrong though.

They were robbed. Plain and simple.

28 Jul 2020 18:30:44
I know it's unlikely to succeed in court. But you can see why they feel aggrieved. Hawkeye has never failed once since it's introduction. Then in the first match of the restart, a perfectly good goal was chalked off and so Aston Villa got a point. They'd have stayed up if that hadn't have happened. I sympathise and feel their pain, but I don't think they'll get anywhere with it.

{Ed025's Note - if it did happen epic it would open a can of worms mate, every bad decision or even debatable ones would be challenged in court, it was a bad mistake and its tough on bournemouth but sometimes thats just the way the cookie crumbles im afraid..

28 Jul 2020 18:37:50
They were and I feel for them. There is no precedent but then Var is new and precedents will be made in some forms.

28 Jul 2020 20:19:52
They certainly were robbed.

{Ed025's Note - i hever heard anyone saying that in 1977 when clive thomas disallowed brian hamiltons goal in the FA cup semi final hopeful.. :)

28 Jul 2020 21:28:18
But before my time that one Ed!

{Ed025's Note - now im not one to bear grudges hopeful.. :)

29 Jul 2020 08:35:19
No guarantees they would have stayed up even if they won that game, or indeed if the goal stood, villa might have rallied and got a point anyway. Its all ifs and buts, i can't really see a case to answer here.
