Jones: You can’t celebrate anymore because you know it’s going to be VAR

NATHAN Jones lamented yet another Saints goal after Newcastle United’s defeat, insisting “you can’t celebrate anymore because you know it’s all up to VAR”.

The St Mary’s team thought they had equalized during a 1–0 loss in the EFL Cup semi-final when Adam Armstrong fired from behind the line at close range.

However, VAR Andre Marriner correctly flipped the handball goal after it bounced off Armstrong’s hand along the way.

It was the third goal Saints missed out in their last two games after both Che Adams and James Ward-Prowse went under in a 1-0 loss to Aston Villa on Saturday.

“You can no longer celebrate a goal or show emotion because you know he’s going to VAR one way or another,” Jones said after Tuesday’s game.

“Unless the player takes the ball from the goalkeeper, hits 11 players and pushes the ball past the goalkeeper, nothing else will happen.”

He added: “You can’t celebrate a goal. We thought we scored two good goals this weekend, but both were canceled by the VAR system, and today everything is exactly the same.

“You can’t experience emotions and you can’t get high, you need to wait. When it turns off, you start to go down a bit.

The Saints now have to travel to St James’ Park next week to bounce back after Newcastle have lost once in their last 19 games.

Eddie Howe’s side have not conceded a Premier League goal since Romain Perrault in Ralph Hasenhüttl’s last game as Saints manager.

Jones praised the result: “I’m frustrated, but it’s really difficult because these are one-off games, performance improves, but sometimes we are naively defensive, which costs us dearly and we miss opportunities.

“If we could bring everything together, we would be a good team, we are aggressive, we follow the game and we work hard.

“We have a young roster, look at the difference in size between the two teams tonight – we are probably the smallest and they are the biggest, so we showed a lot of character.

“There are performances, but only the edge makes or breaks good teams and seasons. We’re just on the wrong side.”
