Was that really a penalty in the Liverpool game?

Salah threw himself to the floor and was never getting on the end of that ball, soft as anything imo.

Certainly not one of those ‘clear cut’ decisions we were told it was only going to be used for.

f*** VAR in this format, like. Craig Pawson needn't have existed in that match. Either have a one way system from panel to ref, or f*** it off altogether with these shitcunt refs checking VAR for the weather.

It took 3 weeks KI, for VAR to be used for exactly what you assured me it wouldn’t :lol:

Not a pop at you btw, you’re clear how it should be used (which isn’t this), but it was always going to be wrongly utilised.

That's based on something that they THINK will happen with VAR, not what is actually in place for VAR. You hear it time and time again about these situations, but it's canny clear like. If there's any contentious grey area whatsoever, then VAR isn't used. It has to be absolutely clear cut that an error has been made.

In practice that's absolutely fine, but I don't think it'll work because they won't use it properly and people will continue to not understand its use.

But VAR will be used where there is doubt with a penalty. How many people disagreed over the penalty that Chelsea got at Arsenal? Quite a few did on here.

So that decision would have been reviewed by VAR and it would still be a contentious decision.

The referee wont say ‘sorry lads, I cant review that one cos it looks a bit dodgy’.

No it won't. Or it shouldn't anyway.

Why wouldn’t it? The referee would definitely review it as the Arsenal players would claim a dive and the Chelsea players would be totally the opposite.

The referee would go into it looking for issues around whether or not there was contact, when he’d then get sucked into whether or not the contact was sufficient for the player to go down - which is perception rather than clear cut.

Why wouldn’t the referee review it? Who or what would stop them?

For exactly the reason that I mentioned in the previous post - If there's any contentious grey area whatsoever, then VAR isn't used. It has to be absolutely clear cut that an error has been made. If the referee checks then it should be that they have serious doubts, or it should be because the VAR panel know that an obviously erroneous decision has been made. VAR isn't there for the reasons that you've mentioned, but it seems to be a misconception that everyone including pundits seems to have.

More VAR bashing...

Said it before, but is it not intrinsically unfair to have what's essentially one set of rules for some teams, and another for other teams? It's literally the same round of the same competition

Notts County scored a goal today which would have been disallowed by VAR but wasn’t because VAR wasn’t available so now Swansea have a replay to play. How is it fair? :lol:

Not necessarily. The evidence is clearly inconclusive. Whole of the ball has to be over the line, it's not clear that's the case due to the camera angles.

Yeah I don't think the whole ball was out there, or you couldn't say so with any certainty anyway.

Shame the Notts fans weren't allowed to hang about for years waiting for the decision before the tv lads let them go mild.

We’d be able to tell with VAR, though.

There is a huge inconsistency playing some games with and some without, it’s an utter shambles.

No one's got a clue, man. [emoji38] I watched two long interviews with Mike Riley and then Graeme Poll, who both described it at length as being exactly as in my post. Later Greg assured me that the ref couldn't check the monitor as well, despite having just watched a ref do it. [emoji38] I'd be all over it if it was how they described it, but it's not, so they either need to change it  or get rid of it. I'm already seething whenever I see that poncy VAR hand gesture.

Revisionist nonsense.  I assured you the referee cannot instigate the checking of something. He can't. The VAR does that.

TBF, and I can't stand VAR, even in the sports that use it successfully the same issue exists. Hawkeye only covers particular courts at Wimbledon for example.
