    In theory this is a small change but in practice it's quite a big one because it gets rid of the accountability void.

    At the moment theres a gap where no one can work out if it's the referee or the VAR who have fucked up and that lets them slide on things.

    When the monitors get involved the referees are 100% to blame for any mistake and theres no grey area about what the VAR can overrule.


    It's a really big change.

    Especially if it brings about pressure from clubs for it to be used for many more offences .

    Presumably a response to IFAB telling them to get their house in order over the VAR protocol which Riley's ignored.

    My first reaction is that I agree - it puts it on one person, and I'm sure people will try to keep an eye on the images that are shown.

    Could certainly be the first crack in the dam.

    When var wants to change it is the key part,they don't want them using the monitors really so the ref can just tap his ear and shrug like Oliver does when he refs us and there is no come back just like now

    Given they used us as the lab rats to show off their shiny new toy at the start of the season i think the one time it's used it will be on us,it won't be used on the likes of Robertson

    Premier League managers have contacted FIFA, asking for the handball rule to change, with the League Managers' Association listing instances where goals have been harshly ruled out after VAR intervention. [via @MirrorFootball]

    It’s become more and more farcical as the season has developed and there is no longer any sporting integrity left. Decisions that could favour a team because of a pitch side tv review wouldn’t have favoured others at the start of the season when it wasn’t being used that way. That gives teams an advantage or disadvantage depending on the circumstances. Changing the implementation of the Sytem as we go is, for me, corrupt. That’s what it is. It is being staged managed and everything about VAR this season should provide even the biggest naysayers all the proof in the world.

    This is no longer about a ‘new system’ and that we are ‘still learning’. This is a choice. It is a calculated decision to move goal posts and like I said above the integrity has now gone.

    Are we a deliberate victim? I believe we are but that is another debate not for this topic.

    VAR in principle either had to be left, even if it wasn’t working, or removed entirely whilst the process was addressed. That is a rational way to look at it but what’s actually happened is neither and that for me is outright cheating.

    There was no VAR check done. It has been swept away under the carpet. The initial argument is that the system wasn’t working on the day, there were things moving around in social media circles on the day that that was the case. The more I’ve thought about it I no longer agree that is what happened. At the time I did.

    I believe the system was fully operative. They just chose not to use it.

    Sky have a lot to answer for that day. They were using there own tech for VAR calls and not one cuñt has stepped up to shout about it.

    They haven’t done that this season. Whenever a VAR review is called it is clear that it’s not there tech, the pictures the consumer see are those of the official VAR process.

    I maintain that game was rigged from the start and that many people know about it, they just dare not speak out.

    As PEG once said, if I speak I’ll be in trouble.

    From day one -var will NOT interfere with the referees decision on red cards and penalties and linesmen/women will not raise their flag for offside decisions ,referees are discouraged to use the pitchside monitors as it could slow the game down
    today- complete opposite
