The speed of getting to a decision should improve in a couple of years as well, understandable that they are taking a bit of time during its infancy to make sure the decision is as uncontestable as possible

Can't see how that's fair like. The rules should be the same for everyone.

Interpretation of rules seem to change from game to game, and from ref to ref anyway, so I don't think it particularly matters that VAR will be used in some games and not others. If anything it will help to show how glaringly necessary it is, and how the games it will be used in will be more enjoyable knowing more correct decisions are being made.

Let's hope they make a better fist of it than the absolute shambles that took place in the FA Cup last season.

Yep - bollocks that - it has to be the same for every match in the competition - I said the same last week about it being used only for Premier League ground-held League Cups ties - s****!

Unless they use it for every match one weekend, but even then the fixture list will obviously mean it's inherently different for each club.

Its not going to be used to affect actual decisions during this trial. They’re just doing it to get used to the logistics of monitoring all the 3pm games in the same place in preparation for next season

Australia had VAR last season, and it was woeful - in the news almost weekly because of some bad call or another.

First week of the new season, and an outrageous decision is made. Enjoy Mark Bosnich ranting about how appalling Australia is doing VAR (coked up, judging by his near-hysteria):

(Link includes footage of the penalty. Just, wow).

Damn. Stopping the game for 5 minutes is such a momentum-killer. What a buzzkill.

Don't suppose it's any different for when they use it for certain cup games, but not all the games for whatever round it is.

I guess points are at stake mind in the league, can of worms if that happens.

Really don't get how VAR can be implemented in anything other than a positive manner. Video assistants have been wildly successful in almost every other major sport.  It can't be that hard to look at how it's been done elsewhere and take those models forward.

Although on the other hand, football referees are so ball-shrinkingly poor across the board, if FIFA/UEFA/The FA can't even get some referees who aren't comically incompetent and/or manifestly bent, then there is no hope for anything other than free penalties for 'Big' clubs for ever more.

Not saying that two wrongs make a right, but it's the same with Goal Line Technology I suppose.


Anyway, good-ish news I think.
