      Yet another shocker of a call this time in the Spurs - Sheffield match where they spent 4 minutes drawing lines til they could get someone's toe offside...

      plus it was 1 or 2 fazes of play before the goal

      First. course of action should be to sack mike riley and to implement the pitch side screen. What mandate does he have to say what should or shouldn't be used

      He is the head of referees in the league.

      The idea of ignoring the screens sounded  good at the start of the season, given the criticism it received for how often it was used during the summer tournaments. Now it's an issue. They should use the screen but when they start doing it, all the old "slow the game down" moaning will be back.  Riley's focus seems to be about not slowing the game down. VAR is not an egg timer, it is an essential tool to help referees make the right call. In this league, there is too much at stake for major decisions to be left to guesswork.

      One of the biggest games this season is at our house this weekend. We haven't been too badly affected by VAR so far relative to other clubs, but there will be the standard 8-10 checks. They all have to be correct, and the referee should use every available resource to get a call right, so that he is not subjected to the full Buffon treatment from players over a major decision he makes. The monitor is like an extra linesman, it's there to help him and make his life easier, not undermine his authority, so he should use it.

      The ref who missed the handball at the Newcastle-Watford game appears to have vanished off the radar since. The amount of available refs for VAR needs to be expanded, as it's always the same names every week in the headlines. One ref was a VAR for two games last week on the same day. You wouldn't ask players to play twice per day, so you shouldn't expect refs to either. It's a high pressure job with heavy responsibility. We have a USA based referee from Ireland doing the VAR at the WCC. He is recognized as the best ref in MLS, but surely there must be other FIFA qualified refs out there to do the job with him.

      So they will rule out goals that are 1mm offside and deem it as offside is offside. But won’t give penalties if it’s not “clear and obvious error”. So much hypocrisy and double standards with the officials over VAR.
      they may as well just rename it to ‘Offside technology” because it’s pretty much the only thing they are intent on using it with, even that they are getting wrong though.

      VAR debut season will go down as nothing other than a complete embarrassment.

      Mike Riley finally sees sense and apparently is about to tell the referees to start using the monitors.

      Think that may help a little bit, but you just know the ref will be under huge pressure from fans and players.

      Every complaint actually. Gives the biased media and Gobbiola the chance to detract from our performance in burying our biggest rivals.
