VAR
 
 
What are people's thoughts on it? Who fully understands how it all works? So many questions I could ask about it I'm just glad it won't be affecting any of our games any time soon haha.

I understand that its a telly that is placed at the side of the pitch. You then watch to see if theres been a fowl. The telly shows it by a camera filming what has happened and then repeating on said telly.

Youre welcome.

But that's just it. The referee did not once go to the side of the pitch to view another camera once last night despite VAR being used four times apparently. There was an incident last night where a penalty could have been given nearly three minutes after it happened!

VAR

 
The VAR is viewed by other referees sitting in a studio miles from the game. The give their opinion when asked via the headphones. The one by the side of the pitch is just in case the ref himself feels the need to see it again.

So basically its still down to a referee's opinion, but sometimes the one miles from the game may have a better view.

Where it falls apart is if you show a borderline decision to a group of referees the chances that they would all agree on a decision are very small, because that is the nature of opinions. Especially when part of the decision a referee is meant to take into account is the intent of the player - and that is always going to be very subjective.

Id imagine if it is more than 1 referee watching tha game them they'd only proceed with a decision if it was unanimous. If not all agree then play on I suppose.

Did anyone watch the arsenal and Chelsea game last night at all? In the 86th min there was a challenge for a penalty that wasn't given, play carried on for about a minute then the decision was looked at and confirmed no penalty. If whilst the game was carrying on Chelsea had scored, but it was then decided it should have been a penalty, what would have happened?

VAR

 
I watch Italian football regularly and they have had it from the season start.... itís weird when a goal is scored the linesmen and referee award it and then a few minutes later itís disallowed for really marginal offside.

Also I was in a stadium when a 25 yard shot went in and there was a 3 minute delay to see if the striker had touched the ball in an offside position or not ...my team were desperately appealing the touch..... then there have been hand ball decisions where they ask the ref to view and make the call.

There is always going to be an opinion view on fouls and hand balls but all the offsides are now given, albeit some are very harsh - itís a whole new viewing experience thinking whether something may be reviewed !

VAR

 
I would imagine its been brought in to prevent absolute howlers.

If the decision, when viewed in slow motion and from different and better angles still results in it being too hard to decide, then like cricket, it will be umpires call. But at least the whining manager, cant bang on about how the decision was clearly incorrect.

I'd say a good thing. There is nothing worse than losing a game because of 1 terrible decision.

It should never happen but fear it is inevitable. Italian football is a complete farce now,every single decision is being urged to be viewed on tv.

It's a bag'o'shyte. I like mistakes and controversy.

The big clubs' argument is always about how bad decisions cost them money. Good! Fvck 'em!

VAR

 
Welcome to the future. VAR for every fecking thing in football. Simple decisions devolved to a faceless TV studio by a referee too scared to make a decision on his own because he'll get fecking cained by the media that he didn't refer it to VAR. This was shown at the BHA game when even the commentator was moved to comment why the VAR had been called upon? Take the human factor out of the sport and it's a further nail in the coffin of normality.

Just like in cricket where the authority of the umpire is now irrevocably questioned by TV reviews, thus it will now be the case for football. And all those who question the importance of football and the millions, that's no reason to destroy the game just coz the billions are heading in the wrong pocket. Personally, I don't give a feck if Chelski lose a dodgy decision and don't win a title in one particular year, they'll get it sooner or later. And the poor souls in the lower depths of the PL are only their for as long as they can hang on (eg Stoke).
