VAR promised a lot but under the ever changing interpretations of VAR it has turned the game into a shambles. There is almost no consistency to the decisions. How was Deli's not handball? How was Sonny's a yellow then a red? None of it makes sense. Why so many checks?

Scrap the way its done now and implement the way its done in Union big screen and all with refs call being final. Players and managers to keep at least 10 yards away while the decision is being made.

Rugby is certainly the closest equivilant.

The peopel in stadium should see the issue. Theres no reason to believe wholesale riots will ensue.

The ref can look up at big screen just as easy.

Mike him up. Lets hear him discuss the issue and solve it live.

Simple.

This running over to a small screen rubbish is just admitting half the grounds are rubbish.

What we saw this week was the fact that the camera positions at villa part were inadequate. How can they operate a system where the angles different from ground to ground. nuts

It's clearly incompetence by English var refferees. In every other country it's working great.

Does make you wonder if they're purposely making it crap. The Premier League never seemed particularly interested about it when it was initially talked about. This way they have an excuse to back it with the public backing.

Problems is if all other countries are using it and using it well then we'll get left behind if we aren't.

* an excuse to scrap it

posted on 4/11/19

Yeah all the criticism and attention should be directed at the officials. This is a good chance to do that IMO. How are they so crap even with VAR. Perhaps they should all be sacked and we can start afresh.

Cara on Sky for a start said that though he thinks we were right to give VAR a try the way its being handled has made him change his mind and he thinks it should be scrapped. Personally as I said I think it needs an overhaul aimed at the actual game and not at upsetting fans at the match.
Instead of having phases in a game that reflect an incident have a time limit if a goal is scored. If plays continued for 20 secs that's as far back as you can go. This then means no matter where a foul, handball etc occurs on the pitch we have a definite rather than a maybe or even a definite maybe cut off point between the incident and the goal no matter how unfair it sounds we all abide by the same rule.

Again the implementation seems to be the issue. It doesn't seem to have caused as much controversy in the CL or WC (a little bit but not as much) so why can the PL simply not implement it in the same way? failing that 2 reviews per game per side, so let the managers decide when it's used. If you need more than two then you are having some really bad luck.
