Whats people foughts on the current discussion that VAR could be scrapped next season my opinion i would keep it but it needs a proper adjustment the handball rule seriously needs addressing to i think we need referees from abroad cause our current refs all seem to be helping eachother out including stockley park even when they are wrong and then but last why havnt we got ifab i watch la liga takes 7 seconds to show if a player is offside where takes us 5 minutes an a 8 year old is on Microsoft paint drawing offside lines at stockley park ?.

I would get rid of it Andy mate or at least put on hold until big improvements are implemented.

Totally taken the joy out of watching the game, human error still talking point and caused more debate and arguments then solved.

As you say the handball rule is subjective and needs looking at big time. Don't like the offside decisions far too marginal imo and needs been some kind of margin of the attackers. Also the time involved to make decisions is a joke, I was all for some kind of appeal system in place for managers or captains to challenge decisions but I guess that would only take a age and stop the flow and enjoyment.

Football has always and will always be a game of opinions. It does generally get more right but the speed is a major problem. When I watch at home even the so called tight ones, I rarely get the offside wrong and I take a second. Handball rule needs to revert back to it's simple deliberate or not and sack off this no goal nonsense even for accidental handball. I say keep it but simplify it. And the ref should not be overruled unless it's a howler. I like the accuracy of off sides but let the refs do the rest.

Yeah some good points in you're post mocker but yeah hand ball rule definitely needs adjusting but not sure if you watched the united match last night but how did var not review the tackle on gordan was a blatant penalty and his sock was ripped from that tackle ?.

Rugby league has used it perfectly for years proper people in charge of it decision made in seconds problem is footballs run by clowns.

Its not the technology its the people using it, no consistency. If we stay with it then over time you should be able to use machine learning to populate a large enough data lake for AI to make the decisions based on a set of determined values. This would take all the personal interpretation out of the equation providing greater consistency. Or we could just go back to Referees and assistants making the decision and stop whinging when they get its wrong or seem to be biased towards certain clubs.

Yeah I did watch Andy mate and watched few times since, like you can't believe it wasn't given and Gordan is right, what is the point of VAR!

Statistically it may be getting more tight decisions correct, but the key static for me is my enjoyment of the game since it has been introduced has gone down. Fact!

The technology is great and there to be used but still doesn't solve the subjective calls and as others have rightly stated other sports use it better and more effectively at pace, it's the inept officials we have nowadays and what seems to be a celebrity culture amongst them.

Absolutely garbage, get rid of var for good would be my perfect solution.

16 May 2024 15:36:30
Get rid of it. There's no joy in the game anymore. VAR stick their noses into everything. It was brought in to assist refs, not try overrule them. It's the incompetent refs who are in the var room that var was brought in to try improve. And everyone has a different interpretation of fouls, handball etc. Just chick it in the bin.

I'm all for VAR for catching the off the ball incidents or the foul leading to a goal. As for handball it needs simplifying. Offside by an eyebrow is pathetic and no amount of cameras or techno wizardry can accurately be conclusive. Why not make it over half the body (i. e. two arms and a leg, two legs and an arm, one leg one arm and a head) . Easy to see and will not take such a song and dance to sort out.

Always thought that with offside Nick. If any part of your body that can score is inside it should stand. simple.

17 May 2024 08:32:06
Keep VAR scrap the referees.

18 May 2024 12:24:04
Scrap VAR. Tried, failed and it really is a no brainer. Football was a much better free flowing game without it. I prefer watching two teams than three.
