Brilliant news


#183

VAR is shit. The soul of the game continues to be sucked dry, what a shame.

Next thing in the agenda, a playoff system no doubt.

RIP Tottenham


#185

VAR is way more fun. May start watching the PL again next season :tada:


#186

#187

Oh that thing that fucked up this years world cup final.


#188

I must admit I’m not overly looking forward to VAR, half sucks the enjoyment out of celebrating a goal, as you are wondering wether it will be overturned by VAR.


#189

Not every goal scored is gonna go to VAR


#190

Just enough of them to ruin the fun tho.


#191

I know I’ve seen the way it’s used, I do watch other leagues from time to time + the World Cup.


#192

Luca wannabe.

Goals get called off as it is, without the use of VAR, I don’t think that stops anyone from celebrating. “Hey, we scored but let’s hold off the celebrations in case the lino flags it offside” - said no one ever.

Sounds like you are just resistant to change.


#194

It won’t.
As an Aussie & cricket fan, I am sure you have yelled out in excitement or disappointment, when a decision for run out is declared on that large screen.
The anticipation makes it even more entertaining.

The sudden excitement when the goal is scored will always be there. It will be a whirlwind of emotion when you are left to check yourself for a review.
I am actually looking forward to it


#195

Have to admit I loved waiting to find out what the ref was going to give when it went to VAR at the World Cup. The anticipation is fantastic haha


#196

There shouldn’t be anticipation though. VAR is only supposed to be used for clear and obvious errors. Therefore we shouldn’t be wondering what VAR will do, we should know.


#197

How are clear and obvious errors defined?


#198

If it’s a clear and obvious error then we wouldn’t need VAR? Surely it’s use has a wider remit


#199

Maybe. But i’m just using the terminology they used themselves. If it’s only supposed to overturn decisions that are clearly wrong then there should be no surprises when the decision is made. But so far that hasn’t always been the case.

No more fake penalties
