    aye that's what they did in that friendly. France scored and the crowd went wild but it went to VAR and everyone sort of stood around with hands on hips. The goal got chalked off and the crowd were a bit miffed.

    funnily enough, there was also a goal disallowed for offside that was then awarded by VAR. the crowd sort of went "yay" but it was a really muted response to a goal.

    VAR wont remove all doubt, there'll still be room for subjectivity as their is in rugby and cricket

    That was evident the other week when a Juve shot hit an Atalanta player on the shoulder and it went to VAR and the ref still awarded a penalty!! If ever you wanted evidence that Juve get all the decisions then summed it up.

    If there is a contentious issue then the game stops anyway.

    Just don’t get why they don’t start with offside first. The tech for tracking players positions is already well developed and the rule is pretty black and white so it should be possible to automate it. That may then allow the “referees assistants” to actually assist.

    Yes but only for seconds mostly not minutes, which will only get longer when the advertisers get hold of it.

    Hope they only use this for goals, penalties, and red cards. Don't need them to be reviewing and stopping matches for ever call.

    At first I was right behind the idea. Having seen it being used at the confederations cup and in Serie A I can safely say that I do not want it in its current form. Maybe for offsides, goal line technology etc but no other decisions.

    Unless they show it on the big screen it's a waste if time.

    Thought it would be good myself but have similar doubts now.

    Forget about the ref what if the video observer has a bias and pulls the game back to reverse a previous good decision by the ref..
    As you say if enough commercial bias is there it gives a second opportunity for their personal choice to be shall we say rewarded.
