      VAR? Great in theory until the idiots from the FA get their stupid mitts on it. Caught a moment of West Ham vs Chelsea where the hammers player was sent off for clearing the ball and follow through made contact. That w**ker Chris Kavanagh shouldn’t ever be allowed to referee any game of footy let alone a top tier game. Anyone who’s played at ANY level knows what’s acceptable and what isn’t. I really don’t know how the FA honestly think the rules that they change on a seasonal basis are any use. Thick as f**k the lot of them...

      So us v barcodes main talking point is VAR ffs, ironically it went in our favour for a change but it was a shocking decision which luckily will change next year.

      The decision in our game, is automatic. I certainly don't want our fate this season decided because an opponent handled the ball and scored from it. They have no case. That's what VAR is there to spot and did so.

      The ref gave a yellow card for the Jota incident. A VAR can't give a yellow card for anything.

      The ref didn't give the yellow he didn't see it it was VAR fact

      We can see when the ball was played because the replay is paused when the ball is released. A linesman can't do that unless it's right in front of him. The rest of the time he has 5-10-15 players blocking his view, so he usually puts his flag up and hopes he's right. The West Brom v Southampton offside call being an obvious example of putting your flag up and getting it badly wrong. This is the EPL. You can talk about spontaneity all you want, but they are factual calls, and you can't be getting those calls wrong.

      Fingers are not used to judge an offside call. Every incident has to be checked. Some are reviewed, and a few decisions from them have to be changed. I hate when we get offside calls against us, but that doesn't mean I hate the system and want to throw it in the bin. I recognise that it is needed to get the correct decision when there's so much at stake. The recent World Cup qualifiers descended into a complete farce, by all the wrong decisions allowed to stand, with no technology available.

      Communication is the major drawback with it atm. It's better than it was but it's still awful, and doesn't help to sell the product to fans players or coaches. And I appreciate it's not always in this language, but even a 10 second delay in broadcasting it, as in e.g. Formula 1 races, would be better than what there is atm. It will happen eventually, and it can't come soon enough.

      Easy solution is make the offside line thicker.
      Also get VAR analysis to be by ex players who actually get the game.
      And with each contentious decision there should be a brief explanation as to why they gave it or didn’t so we are not all guessing.

      What if they're not arsed and can't be bothered with the hassle so settle for a tv pundit job instead?

      Then give VaR responsibilities to the public. A public vote. That’ll do it.
      You could press the red button on your remote for a foul. The green button for a non foul. Maybe even phone a friend.

      I see Balbuena's red for hammers against chelski has been rescinded, correctly in my opinion but the bellend VAR official should be struck off, never even a foul! Who knows what the result would have been without that incompetence

       That's typical VAR, they have time to study what happens and still the decisions are debatable, so with all the delays and dubious decisions we might as well be without it and enjoy the game as it flows
