    As far as we know it never went to VAR though other than a quick clear and obvious check, otherwise the monitor would have been used, same with the red card and penalty.. Simple fact is VAR is used much more like it was intended in C/L and other leagues than it is in the premier league.

    Or if more had made the same decision - not just at City but within football generally, we might not have VAR and the game of football might be in a much better state.

    But it's only because people take pride in wanting to be the biggest blue/red/mug that the broadcasters and football authorities know they can take the piss out of people and do what they want to the game without any consequences.

    Enjoy your VAR, electronic flags, and £70 replica shirts.

    We were always getting VAR there was almost a clamour for it a few years ago. For most leagues it works fine and will improv, and at some point will in the P/L too.There are plenty of flags, electronic isn't an issue. Expensive replica shirts are hardly a recent thing. Are there niggles with modern football, yes,then again there were in he past too, are they worth giving football up for, not for most of us.

    I thought VAR might be a good idea too but I was wrong and didn't think through the consequences of not being able to celebrate goals fully anymore in case they're reviewed and disallowed 5 minutes later. I don't know any league where they don't use VAR to check goals and can't see it ever not being used for that purpose so I completely disagree that there are places where it works fine and it will work fine in the future.

    I never said I've given up football by the way, just my season ticket. I wish more football fans would have done the same to be honest because I think the game would be better but I suppose it's not just your SkySports subscriber who likes VAR although then again, aren't you from Scotland so I can't imagine you get to many matches anyway?

    More like if caught speeding, you can take the points or do a course.

    The mitigation of the pre 2012 contracts was an allowed route to compliance which was taken away.

    Keep PiGMOL and their corrupt lackies away from VAR and it could be implemented properly .

    If the PL has any serious intent of making the game better ( and more honest ) then the twats at PiGMOL and Stockley Park would be given the boot or made to implement it as it is intended to be used.

    There was no clamour for it , I think some of us knew how it would go & it’s been worse , the effect of non celebration of goals I don’t think anyone saw coming , it’s destroyed the best part about football.

    Do these hacked emails still exist somewhere? Maybe still with Der Spiegel? I’m wondering if ‘stuff’ exists on other clubs and who, if anyone, is looking through them all.

    There is nothing wrong with VAR. The problem is with the guys who are in Stockley Park and are implementing it. Afterall they are the ones that take their time to check the video replays. They had no problem last night with VAR all decisions were done within a minute, and were correct.
