It's incidents like tonight when the penalty decisions are clear and obviously wrong and VAR don't overturn them.The technology will improve rapidly.
I find it difficult to make an argument against correct decisions being made.
We keep seeing examples of VAR changing big decisions the refs had already got wrong.
If you scrap the idea, it won't improve. Stick with it, fund it, and in 15 years the way VAR is used now will look like the stone age.
Yes and they said the VAR team didn't have access to the images we had on BT Sport, which is fucking weird and an example of issues with the technology.It's incidents like tonight when the penalty decisions are clear and obviously wrong and VAR don't overturn them.
Spot on. I'm actually not celebrating goals as wildly anymore, and I hate that. I think we've left the referee in a terrible position. There's still these 50/50 situations, and now everybody expect the right call. Even though we've got the same agenda on this forum, people never seem to agree if it should be pen or not, even after watching 10 slows.
