No, it's been brilliant. They just need to apply it better, and work out the necessary protocols around it (which trialling it properly before the WC would've achieved).

I read or heard somewhere that during the WC, VAR has improved the amount of correct decision making by the officials from 93% to 95%. I'll try to find where I saw that, so I can post it.

EDIT: It's not in this WC, it's the pre-WC trials that were done, but it took the correct decision percentage from 93% to 98.8% - http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11095/11295403/has-var-worked-statistics-behind-worldwide-use-show-positives

Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.
