VAR was brought in to rid the game of bad errors , it can’t pick and choose which handball to look at it’s either all or Fck all , your either using Var to rid the game of them errors or your not can’t have it both ways , a blatant penno not given and you still say it’s working
Every handball is looked at. Every incident is looked at. When the VAR has different evidence to what the ref says he saw on the pitch, he sends him to the monitor to review it. The VAR is there to assist him, (basically a 4th official with a screen) not re ref the game for him.
Webb says releasing VAR audio is a small step forward. My opinion: Getting rid of it full-stop would be a big step forward.
No it wouldn't be, the VAR quiz would replace it. And nobody wants that back, me included.
What has certainly happened is that without VAR use on several occasions this season, we would not have won the Charity Shield, and we would now be staring down at Conference football for next season and as a consequence, senior staff/players queueing up to flee the club. But at least you would be thrilled to have no VAR in the ECL group stage, bringing back the dark days of wrong offside calls and divers back into the game to "win" their penalties, rather than earn them.
I found it amusing when the "I can't celebrate goals anymore" whinge was dragged up again elsewhere during the week. These are the same fans who celebrate their teams getting penalties, even though 1 in every 5 penalties is missed. Some of them don't even bother to look. What's the point? Do they not look at corners or free kicks around the box either?
