Explaining the VAR drama: Why Fernando Llorente's goal stood as Spurs eliminated Man City

The FC crew argue the referee was not provided the proper angles to see whether or not a handball was committed on Tottenham's third goal.

In a perfect world, we would have been talking only about four goals in 11 minutes, one of the wildest quarterfinal matches in history, how Manchester City's season is reduced to a "mere" potential Treble and how Tottenham are 180 minutes away from their first European Cup final. But we live in an imperfect world, and one of the legacies of Wednesday night at the Etihad is the controversy surrounding Fernando Llorente's goal and the use of Video Assistant Referees (VAR).

After speaking to multiple...

UEFA Champions League final four: Why Barca, Liverpool, Spurs and Ajax will or won't win it all this season

It's a cliche because it's true. With just 270 minutes (plus extra time) left to play, anyone can win the Champions League. Liverpool were in the final just a year ago and Barcelona were the last team not named Real Madrid to actually win it. Ajax and Tottenham look like the longshots but have earned their places by taking down Borussia Dortmund, Real Madrid, Manchester City and Juventus in the past two rounds. Plus, thanks to the fact that the quarterfinal and semifinal draws were made at the...

Liverpool's Roberto Firmino does the simple things right and that's why he's so important

In simple terms, it was the classic Plan B: a backup striker coming off the bench to get on the end of a teammate's cross and nod home in the closing stages.

Except for the fact that Liverpool had already wrapped up their 6-1 aggregate win in the Champions League quarterfinal tie against Porto by the time Roberto Firmino headed goalwards in the 77th minute. And that their substitute centre-forward isn't the classic Plan B at all, but a slender, mobile centre-forward once considered a false No. 9.


What we learned from the Champions League: Llorente actually made Spurs worse...

Champions League knockout ties are meant to be tight -- instead, we were treated to 18 goals in the four quarterfinal matches this week, with almost non-stop action from Lionel Messi's brilliant opener for Barcelona against Manchester United to Raheem Sterling's disallowed goal against Tottenham in the final minute. Here are some key talking points from a wonderful week of European action.

Liverpool show again they can win 'by any means necessary' to set up a showdown with Barcelona

PORTO, Portugal -- If the apocalypse comes and all life is wiped out, Liverpool will be right there next to the cockroaches.

They're the side that won't go away. They're the side that in the space of a year has turned from a reckless teenager into a furrowed-brow 30-something, from a side just as liable to blow teams away as explode into one that wins by any means necessary, grinding out results when you didn't think them possible.

Seven goals and VAR drama as Tottenham stun City. Was this greatest UCL game ever?

MANCHESTER, England -- It was Pep Guardiola's Jose Mourinho moment. A late, dramatic winner in a Champions League tie, followed by the victorious manager sprinting down the touchline to celebrate wildly with his players.

But then, in the flash of a video screen, it wasn't.

The Etihad Stadium went from raucous noise to mournful silence as Raheem Sterling's 93rd-minute hat-trick goal, Manchester City's fifth on the night, was ruled out -- correctly -- following a VAR review that ruled that Sergio...
