I can't see how a linesman would see that it's not offside

 

It'll have to be one for VAR you'd think

 

And the lower leagues without VAR?

 

Exactly, there'd be no consistency and more frustration. I personally don't see any need to change the current position massively to be honest

Actually the incompetent buffoonery of refs and the dawning realization that no amount of technology in the universe can overcome their gargantuan ineptitude may be the best argument against VAR of all. Take your (busted) 50fps myths and bin them. Stuff the "b-b-but stoppages in muh beautiful game" blubbering. The depthless, abject, insurmountable stupidity of the referees is the death knell for VAR. Scrap it and save the money.

Yesterday for example, Lo Celso should have been binned. It was correctly reviewed and the third party came to the incorrect decision.

 

Disagree.

 

The officials on the pitch missed the incident and didn't even check it themselves in the monitor.

 

Do they ever?

 

I don't watch much live football these days, so I don't get to see, but every time I see VAR used it appears as if the ref just stays on the pitch, waiting to be informed of the decision.

Peter Crouch podcast with Mike Dean is worth listening to. Nothing groundbreaking but a good laugh.

 

Refreshing to hear from a referee given how veiled they are from the media. A tough balance but I think they should be allowed to speak more and explain their decisions though I'm not sure as to how the best way to achieve this. Definitely merit in doing it though.

I also think, for what it's worth, that the timing of the fact that VAR had missed the red card (came out during the game) wasn't ideal. Would have been far better served releasing it post-match. Worse still, that VAR official did the Leicester v Man City game at 5:30 as well!

Every time we get the referee we got today he always lets the other team make any sort of challenge they want without giving a freekick and gives us a soft one. They could have been down to 10 men today, and should have had a fair few bookings.
