In your honest opinion what do you make of Video Assistant Refereeing in football. Should it stay or go. If there were changes made what would you do?

Itís so frustrating every week seeing a wrong decision being made. Itís highlighted two key areas of the game that perhaps didnít get as much negative press in the years preceding it Ė the offside rule, and the handball rule. Neither have consistent VAR decisions and thatís what gets to me that it doesnít work, but also, this rule about a incident being ďclear and obviousĒ is never applied and the smallest of margins are causing major game-changing goals to be disallowed for incredible reasons.

If there is one more thing to mention about VAR failures, it would be the dormant use of the sideline video monitors that the referee is supposedly meant to be checking and they never do. What is the point if itís never used?

VAR is fine. The incompetent people using it, are not.

Yesterday was surely VAR's worst day in the Premier League so far. Two clear red cards were missed in the Chelsea v Tottenham and Sheff Utd v Brighton games. Leicester were denied a clear penalty for handball and had an equally clear penalty awarded against them. Surely the whole point of VAR is to avoid inconsistencies like that.

Then there was the farcical Burnley v Bournemouth game. The first goal Bournemouth had ruled out was partly a result of the new rule that penalises a forward for handball even if it is not at all deliberate, but it still seemed to hit his shoulder which doesn't count as handball. The penalty Burnley were awarded (thereby ruling out a Bournemouth equaliser) was equally dodgy. Given how much it has been debated, it cannot possibly have been a "clear and obvious error". I don't see how Sean Dyche could claim that the part of his arm (again, arguably the shoulder) can have been in an unnatural position. Unless you are a contortionist, it is practically impossible for your shoulder to be in an unnatural position. He didn't lean towards the ball so it cannot have been deliberate. I don't think I've ever seen Eddie Howe as deflated as he was after that match sad.gif

The Var was a disgrace in that game, could relegate Bournemouth.

VAR has led to a marginal increase in the accuracy of decisions but it's absolutely not worth the massive drop off of the fan experience. It's appalling and has shown on occasion to be completely farcical.

No VAR for a month, how it is used by incompetent people has made the game look farcical at times.
