    They do JC. However that then makes it a bit of pantomime. VAR is fine if you just want football to become the NFL or another sport just for TV, however for folk going to games and with any emotional investment in it, imo it is *. As you say decisions are still discussed after it with folk having different opinions so for me I lose more from VAR than I gain.

    I mentioned earlier in a German game they took over 3 mins to decide a perfectly good goal should have being allowed. Then at the end of the half added on 2 mins injury time. That is not making the game fairer. It is the exact opposite. As Gary Neville said today put yourself in the other teams/supporters shoes. If that was Celtic and we were pressing for an equaliser and VAR had cheated us out of that extra minute I would be fuming.

    It could have been the officials deciding we didn't get this last minute

    Aye, however if the officials had spent more time earlier in the game" reviewing" decisions. The full time whistle goes for the throw in and we don't score that goal ;)

    Then they need to ensure referees add on the correct amount of time. Problem solved. There was always going to be issues that cropped up and they can just as easily be ironed out.

    There are so many different tins of worms that have been opened by it. As I said earlier, I'm still for it (just), so long as it's done right. There were a few dodgy ones yesterday as well, Spurs game, Burnley game etc, they've been * it up regularly.

    Wasn't in the EPL but I think the worst thing I've seen as a result of VAR so far was in the champs league and Chiellini dived during a goal going against Juve, so it was chalked off. VAR also relies on the honesty and integrity of professional footballers and you're on to * plums wi that.

    Aye. VAR is still just some * looking at a video and making a decision in their opinion. Before you even get into which decisions they do or don't look at . They'll get some right and they'll get some wrong. Like I say though for me the game loses more than it gains from it.

    I'm sure the reason behind that is they didn't want to cause more delays getting the correct decision. They put the trust into the guys at Stockley Park to make the right call. I think that's a good idea tbh. Means there's less pressure on the ref as well, can't be influenced by the occasion or the crowd etc.

    They're down to 10 obviously but Southampton's defending is as bad as I've ever seen, they're so * slow to every ball. He's off in the morn that *.
