To V or not to V.

Go down

To V or not to V.

So now we have it, the VAR is a shambles according to the pundits who disagree with the video ref's decision. So from being the so called "way forward" to eliminate controversy it still relies on human opinion of an experienced official who allegedly gets it wrong, even with electronic assistance.

Given the choice, I would sack the pundits and the VAR and just go back to living with real time decisions, warts and all.

There's a lot in what you say Nos, I think the main problem is most pundits say if you are touched, no matter how slightly, you have a right to go down and claim a penalty. Bullshit!

Should only be used for goal line.
Some weak referees will be badgered by players to use it for all minor mistakes etc.

I agree with Vince, only for goal line. Pens and fouls ar a mystery to me these days with players going down at the slightest touch, is football a contact sport or not?

I’ve been looking forward to it, it’s not great winning a match with a dodgy decision and it’s bloody awful losing a match by a dodgy decision.

Having said that it clearly needs a lot of tweaking before it’s unleashed on us all on a permanent basis.  Certainly players and managers trying to use it as a ‘tactic’ needs stamping down on.

If it cuts down on the more obvious errors.. it has to be helpful. Sometimes the ref and the players are the only ones not to know what actually happened. The  crowd (mobiles) and those watching on TV  have seen the replays fairly instantly.

I dislike diving intensely.. he was entitled o go down cos he felt a touch.. is 9ne of the phrases I hate

In Rugby you pretend you are not hurt.. in football you pretend you are 

If VAR can help with this and pens offside etc and does it quickly ... we should go for it

I don’t like var
Maybe for goal line 
But not for the rest of the game there will be to many players asking the ref for the game to be stopped and tv checked 
Not the answer for me

The original rule book was always on the side of the ref with the phrase "in the opinion of the official" - two of them looked at it so no pen is no pen. Live with it pundit and manager.
