      How many City fans waited to celebrate the ghost goal v Spurs? Crowds will celebrate as they always have. Whether the immediate decision given will stand or not, is a different story.

      Watching the cricket final at the weekend, was not a great advert for the team challenge theory. At least 2 major decisions were called wrong, and could not be corrected because the team concerned were out of challenges, and clear and obvious wrong decisions had to be allowed to stand. To be restricted to 1 challenge over 300 balls as they are, makes me relieved that the officials in our sport, still have the absolute authority to make final decisions on any incident in the game.

      You really do have a case of verbal diarrhoea

      But that's the f**king problem, especially when the refs are jobsworth cu*ts. Give me cricket and their video system over Var and our useless refs any day of the week. At least the umpires know and the crowd in general know what the f**k is going on.

      Same with both codes of Rugby they are both officiated so much better than the EPL . Why not improve the training and fitness of Refs before killing the game with un-needed technology

      They're officiated better because they have help. In general, English refs are not better or worse than any other refs. But when you have one chance to make a decision, mistakes will be made, so refs then look worse than they are, when it happens. Now they can see everything they need to look at when they have to look at it, as many times as necessary.

      With the biased LFC hat on, I'm looking forward to all the extra goals penalties and points we're set to get, that we didn't before. We got our first of many in Porto. I'm also looking forward to the team going to the toilet, and not been terrified of what the ref is going to do anytime the mancs get near our box. If the cost is an extra minute or two injury time, I can take it.

      couldn't agree more the EPL refs are just bloody awful . They have little authority on the pitch and look like frightened Rabbits caught in the headlights at the first sign of trouble. Why not get the best Refs in from other leagues and pay them well .

      Just watching the VAR feature on Sky in the build up to the game.
      Just a thought. If the Ref, 4th official and VAR official are all PL referees are there going to be enough to go round or are we going to be getting some 2nd level refs in some games?

      I'm one that's always been open for  VAR improvements but now doubting my own opinion. The late goal by city under VAR rules was the right decision ( but harsh ) However, how come there was no VAR review for the penalty claim which would surely have been given if VAR intervene. This is where I get tottaly confused with it all.  :f_doh:

      Can't believe it was reviewing that but then not a peep with the Pogba dive.

      James lucky to be on the pitch as well, should have had a second yellow.

      What is harsh about it? It's not an injustice, the law is crystal clear. Therefore the VAR has no choice but to step in and tell the referee to apply the relevant law before play resumes, and he did.

      Not a VAR matter. Straight red card incidents only.

      Want saying it was, was just a statement in reply thi another comment. To be honest though, I've seen straight reds given for the dangerous kind if tackle he did though.

      After the initial goal and celebration it's like the atmosphere went flat waiting on the VAR decision.

      At the end of the day, makes a distinction between the different forms of the game, which is wrong. Should be the same rules for all whether Prem League, lower leagues, grass roots even kids footy.

      Agreed, with the introduction of VAR those questionable officials face even more scrutiny over their mistaken calls, it's been said before and is patently true - VAR gets it right more times than the faulted judgement of some visually challenged/biased/tired official.

      Initially in favour now I can’t stand it , all seater stadia take a lot of the atmosphere , now we got all the hanging about with this sh*t , was all for goal line technology, but this has gone way to far , and that useless tit Mike Riley wants a rod up his hoop for his interference with the handball laws mans a fckin idiot , worse than that he’s being paid to be a fckin idiot ,

      Whether one is for it or against it (VAR) The one thing for sure it will take a lot of excitement out of the game, the sheer emotion and instinctive reaction to a goal.  Might be a bit too much to ask from the rule makers because they are useless at their jobs.  But really need to relax the laws of players celebrating and taking their shirts off or dare I say celebrating with the fans, to try and make up some ground.  Because this VAR is really killing the entertainment.
