VAR. Apologies if a thread elsewhere.
Totally ruining football.

I'd prefer to be in the Championship.

A hand offside? Farcical

That SHOULD be a goal
The intention of VAR should be to rule out howlers like Milner in the Liverpool game at London Stadium not for a toenail by the corner flag

Another fucked up decision, as Wolves have a goal ruled out.

VAR really is a fucking joke and ruining the game.

I wasn't paying complete attention, but I think they were two parts of the same incident.

There was a goal at the weekend that was scored and given and then checked by VAR and by var guidelines should have been disallowed but was still given

They can’t even be consistent with fucking it up

Did VAR just look at the wrong video clip in the Villa-Leicester replay. I wasn't particularly paying attention but the clip showed the ball hitting a Villa players back. Another clip showed it clearly hitting his hand which was up in the air?

They could also have a camera in the linesman’s head and every time it sees a Liverpool badge attacking it sends an electric shock to his arm & paralyses him so he can’t lift the flag.

And microphones around the pitch could be connected to a system that uses AI to detect racist or homophobic abuse to determine if a goal should stand.

Re: VAR. Apologies if a thread elsewhere.
it could actually be automated. GPS sensor in each boot (they are tiny and accurate to the centimetre) and an impact monitor in the ball.

if when the peak of the ball's seismograph happens the attacker's boots are in line or behind the defenders, then a goal counts.

it would be as instant as goal line tech.

Re: VAR. Apologies if a thread elsewhere.
Wow, not often that Souness talks sense.

The point of VAR was to look for clear and obvious errors. So if and offside decision needs a micrometer to determine the outcome, just go with the on-field decision.

They are going to change it...



possibly?

Re: VAR. Apologies if a thread elsewhere.
I understand Graeme Souness came up with the suggestion that if any part of the player is ONSIDE then it should be given.
It’s a roundabout way of having the idea of daylight between the forward and defender and I think it would be a major improvement.

The referees should also go to the monitor on the pitch for a second look at pens as the turds at Stockley Park seem reluctant to overrule even on blatant errors like with Haller (x 2).
If they see blatant dives it should be a red card & a 3 game ban.
2nd offence 10 game ban.
3rd offence , full season ban

Re: VAR. Apologies if a thread elsewhere.
VAR should be useful for overturning completely incompetent decisions like Liverpool's goal against us last year when their player was two yards offside. If it's a matter of centimetres then stick with the onfield decision.

Unfortunately it's being used to ensure certain teams (like Liverpool) get the vast majority of close decisions in their favour, and obvious errors like TAA's handball against Man City being ignored.

Re: VAR. Apologies if a thread elsewhere.
It’s useful for cut and dried decisions like offside that cannot be argued with when you see footage. However they need to change this trailing foot or hand bollocks and just measure from the torso of each player like how they judge the winner in athletics. Far fairer.

As for all subjective calls it hasn’t really helped. Our ‘penalty’ against Southampton being the classic example. Ref gets it wrong then it’s compounded by the VAR folk agreeing when everyone else on the planet says it’s nailed on. How can that be allowed to happen? We all know if that situation happened to Liverpool or Man U it would be a penalty given by the ref anyway, or if not then, given by VAR. So nothing has changed.

We’ve already seen variances in interpretation for handballs where Man City and Liverpool have both got away with a couple that are identical to things other teams have been penalised for. It would work IF it was being applied fairly and consistently. Which it isn’t. So we are just back to square one all over again only with more stoppages and delays happening to come to the same inherently biased or wrong conclusions.

It hasn’t helped or changed anything. Keep it for offside but fuck it off for the rest. The decisions lean far too much on the integrity of the on field decision and the reluctance of those in the booth to change it, depending on which team is playing.

Re: VAR. Apologies if a thread elsewhere.
Apparently when VAR was introduced in Spain last year it went as badly as here but it's improved somewhat this season. The main turnaround has been that if they review something and they see that it is not going to be clear right away without several replays then they just leave it and move on.

France is supposed to be as bad as us with long stoppages and goals disallowed because in an earlier phase of play someone's chin was offside.

Re: VAR. Apologies if a thread elsewhere.
Interesting stat from MOTD 2 last night. Linesmen got 97% of offside rules right. The feeling was that VAR shouldn't be used to determine offside decisions its trying to fix somethingvthat isnt broken,leave that part of the game to the officials rather than have aall the controvesy we currently have. I find it hard to disagree with that.

Level is now offside. It's beyond shocking.
