    they could improve it by only counting the feet as being in the offside position as sterlings shoulder being offside by an inch while his feet are easily onside makes a mockery of the system. also theres plenty of time and evidence to decide if a handball is deliberate or not as the wolves goal being disallowed was farcial as well

    If it spoils the premier league then good enough for the bloated uncompetitive pile of shit that it's become.

    We'll enjoy our competitive var free games in the lower leagues thank you very much.

    Obviously the chelsea game would have worked, but theres so many tight decisions that it wont..
    I'm all for it tho. For the obvious decisions

    It was bad enough when you had the possibility of the lino giving an offside while you were in the middle of celebrating the goal your team desperately needed, now you could celebrate a goal, nip out for a piss and come back to find the goal you're so chuffed about had been disallowed some minutes after it went in.

    It'll be the end of limbs after an El Topo Shelfo, nobody will want to celebrate until it's been "confirmed".

    But most city fans get tanked up before the game and miss the original goal WHILE having a piss , so when they come back, nothing has changed score wise.

    The game is reffed differently in every country to a degree. What you can get away with in Serie A you couldn't in Spain or whatever. VAR is trying to unify it. Nuno will be the first to object to a British type tackle we thinks fair on one of his players not getting a yellow but when Fifa sripulate a defined definition of handball and it goes against him he's cross. Just fuck odf. Its happening whatever. Just deal with it you eskimo prick.

    You’ll get all the managers in the PL having a swipe this season if it goes against them

    You think this bearded nonce would be piping up if Leicester has one chalked off?

    Twat.

    Cunt.

    Prick.

    Why don’t they do what they do in tennis? Give each team a set number of challenges per game and get on with it.
    Eliminates the apparent need to check absolutely everything incase a strikers fingernail is marginally offside.

    All the people talking about it killing the atmosphere I’ve never witnessed anything like that Man City v spurs game, I thought var was done well in the champions league apart from a couple of hand ball decisions because no fucker actually knows what hand ball is anymore :shrug2: the European refs seem far superior to the English ones

    I agree. VAR was pretty good. I thought Lorente's was handball if you remeber that and the PSG was a bit tight but it worked well. Im sure it depends which muppets are sat in the truck VAR'ing it as such...

    Lorentes would’ve been harsh as fuck, how man yo had a pel I don’t know but I have no idea what hand ball is anymore, I like the idea of var as I think it will even it up against the big boys but it will take a few years to perfect

    Would have been harsh but I thought that was the point of VAR. It is handball or its not. It affected the flight of the ball. How could it not ? No grey areas with VAR as such. That's why they've tightened it up this year. Hits your arm, hand or whatever - Handball.

    I’m not a fan of var at all.

    I have no problem with the use of technology to help the ref but not if it’s to the detriment of the game.
    Of course the telly companies and the fucking armchair fans will love it, it gives an added layer of tension, a bit like a reality tv programme.

    How long will it be before Davina McCall or Dermot O’ bastard Leary announce the result of the var decision after a predictable and pointless 10 second delay?

    “the refs decision is in, and the result is.........................................................................................................................................................................PELANTY!”

    I agree with Nuno, it’s bollocks, sack it off.

    thats fair enough, the only thing I would change is the tmo makes the decisions and none of the ref looking at the screen nonsense which seems to be the case
