FINALLY. Fabulous news. We finally may start getting some decisions in our favour, after suffering for decades.

Having said that, people need to be patient. I'm sure the naysayers will be in full-force at the beginning, holding up the initial jitters with the new process and tech like Luddites hellbent on destroying machines. We need to give VAR time, and deal with all its inherent issues that will surface right away, and refine it over the years so that it works seamlessly and flawlessly. But this will take time, I just hope patience is something that's implemented along with it.

Aye. It's definitely going to be s**** for at least a year. Maybe 10.

It was good in the WC, a few absolute howlers aside. But what makes me sceptical is our s**** refs: when it was trialled in the FA Cup last season it was absolutely awful. The Liverpool v West Brom comes to mind where there was up to 10 minutes of stoppage in the first half alone.
But...6 in a row. But...Calciopoli.

I reckon Haydn wears pure concentrated pheromones.

Until match going fans know what’s going on when they’re using it, it’ll always be gash.

This is true with or without VAR.  We're makeweights in the PL now and are absolutely interchangeable with any other English club that isn't in the 'Big Six'. The FA would happily f*** us over to help out one of the 'Big clubs'.  VAR doesn't change this, it just means that the FA will have to find away to allow their bent refs to favour the big clubs without being caught out by VAR.

I genuinely can't wrap my head around how genuine football fans thinks this is good news. Did its absolute best to ruin what otherwise was a class World Cup IMO.

Definitely didn’t ruin and probably improved the World Cup. The penalty scenario near the start was because of stupid players not var

It was 100% the best thing about the World Cup. Rules actually were enforced.
But only in their dreams can men be truly free. It was always thus and always thus will be.

Except when they weren't :lol: Partly because of their own "Clear and Obvious Mistakes" rule, which wasn't enforced at all, but mostly the stoppage time rule was just completely ignored. Don't remember which game, but there was a game when there should have been about 8 minutes of stoppage time in the last 10 minutes alone, and barely none was given.
Anyone thinking this will lead to fairer games with fewer big decisions being given to big teams are in for a rude awakening IMO, it's just another step towards the big teams not missing out on a late penalty.

How did it ruin the World Cup? :lol: There was a few bad decisions but much less than there would have been without it

Can’t understand a Newcastle fan not wanting VAR
"Lots of young fellas runnin' around in shorts, that's the kind of think you like looking at, and I bet you like that too, only you're probably imagining what they'd look like without shorts, you're sitting there imagining that with a big smile on your face, ya dirty fecker"

Because other genuine football fans think it improved the World Cup? It needs ironed out, but VAR at the World Cup was generally seen as a success and with good reason.

Also, VAR improved significantly as the WC progressed, so much so that we even forgot about it — it stopped getting in the way — in the semi finals and final.

VAR was a relative success at the world cup, still some s*** decisions with it mind.

Great way to disrupt the game if somebody is getting close to an equaliser against one of the big clubs.

I thought VAR might make the game fairer and that surely they couldn't just disregard the 'clear and obvious error' concept. But if the World Cup final was anything to go by, it'll just be another corrupt tool to manipulate games as you see fit if the little side is going against the script. I think the game is becoming increasingly corrupt and this only hands more power to influence results. In theory it should be good news but it ruined the world cup final.

That isn't VAR's fault, it's the referee's

Teams deliberatley make subs in or just before stoppage time if they are winning as they know the refs never add all the time on.

Refs not having a backbone isn't VAR's fault.

Seriously? Ok.


Take our recent game against Man U, If we could have stopped the game for 5 mins at the end and thenonly added 3 stoppages, we would have come away with a point.

Exactly, it's only going to be used in game changing moments, a red card that maybe got missed, a goal that should have been allowed/ disallowed. If a team is try to get VAR to be used, it'll likely be for a red card offense, so it'll ultimately be a detriment of said team.

You all seem to be assuming that I mean it can be exploited by the team winning.
