It's already been mentioned. The application of it is what needs fixing. Don't know why it takes so long and don't know how the ref makes the decision whether to use it or not?

he's the man on the pitch, he has to have final say or he loses credibility.

That's fine.

But I think the higher ups need to put in place what can be challenged and what can't. Makes it much easier for the ref.

In the NHL and MLB there are only certain plays that you can challenge with the replay system. So you don't have this sort of chaos out on the field when something happens like we do with VAR.

It has potential ...but has to be used correctly ..and fairly for both sides ....I've said it before allowing teams say 2 var challenges per half would work better than for random shit only they see fit to act on again like the Greizmann mark spitz esq dive today or Kanes two obvious penalty shouts in the group's ....just for instance .


It can't be up to the ref when and what to use it for. There has to be clear plays that the ref is only allowed to go back to it, or give the teams 1-2 or 3 challenges on any play. Allowing the ref to just make the decision on the fly isn't going to work. Wait till the derby at anfield and the swarm of red around the him while 50k+ are screaming at him. It ain't going to end well for us or any non big 6 teams.

Its a no for VAR from me. It's going to get to the point were you cant celebrate goals properly because you're waiting for some form of check/analysis. The best moments in football are them last gasp 'limbs' winners, all about being in the moment. I get the points for pro VAR but for me, personally the negatives outweigh the positives

You're only negative is not being able to celebrate a goal properly.

not having a pop at you, but that's a pretty weak argument.
