Oh cheating is still happening even WITH VAR.
the game was happily played for over 100 years without any technology needed.
Basically it's all about the money.
Yeah the amount of money is a factor now. Billions are resting on the correct decision made. That wasn't the case 100 years ago.
We're into the 5th year of this, and the 11th year of GLT. Whinging about how the game was refereed 100 years ago isn't going to suddenly change things.
Would love across the water to tell me how that goal wasn’t offside for City just now?
This is the worst start to a season for VAR, shouldn’t it be getting better and the people using be more experienced? It’s gone majorly backwards.
No it hasn't. Apart from the first week, it's been a fairly quiet start to the season by VAR, with interventions relatively rare.
The goal was given because the ref, linesman, and VAR all agreed that it wasn't offside. Simple as that really.
Up in Scotland, VAR is just as sh*t as down here.
Celtic defender dallies on the ball and gets caught, he then kicks the Rangers forward, Rangers break and score. VAR then sends the ref to the screen to look at it and he somehow thinks it's a foul. Not a million years.
Should be 1-0 Rangers but VAR has fu**ed them over.
You're blaming VAR for the referee making his own judgement. When the ref saw the forward trod on the defenders foot, he thought it was a foul. Yet you blame VAR for it.
It's only a couple of years since the lack of VAR in Scotland was allowing players to score goals in that fixture after clearly handling the ball. Thankfully those days are now gone.
I've given up reading his nonsense. The forum is about opinions freely given without fear or favour and I'll debate most things with anyone....but this poster has his head in the sand and is incapable of reason, lacking the maturity to engage with people with any degree of respect.
The forum is about giving opinions without fear. That's what I do. Apart from the mad manc, I respect everyone here. After 12 years here, I believe I'm mature enough to engage with anyone in a respectful manner. I don't frighten anyone, threaten anyone, belittle anyone, swear at anyone, defame their character, or question who they support.
To survive on football forums, you never give up. This club is all about not giving up. You say what you need to say and you defend it when challenged. This thread was set up after the West Brom game in the cup, and I made it fairly clear from the outset what I thought of the use of VAR. That has not and will not change, no matter what.
