    Thank you. Need more threads like this and absolute venom on twitter directed at the idiots who have allowed it into the game.

    I like it. They need to make it better as a spectacle though and they will in time.

    Nah players will learn, especially with encroachment. There's no excuse for that.

    That bit was dreadful. Won't be watching too much football if VAR is used for shit like that.

    The decisions have been brilliant to be fair. Some fans are just upset City are't always offside like they claimed they would be :lol:

    For all you naysayers: are the keepers allowed to go off the line like that? No.

    This is appalling. I knew it would be. Football is natural, flowing game. The referee is a big part of that. A team of video analysts picking every decision isn’t going to do anyone any good.

    How often do we sit after a game and watch a panel of pundits unable to agree of a decision. It’s a game of opinion. And that’s mine.

    Yeah but City got a goal so VAR is bad again. Guaranteed this thread wouldn't be made if it was us vs West Ham and it went our way.

    Exactly this! It will ruin the game. No more sudden feelings of joy (or dissapointment). Fairness is not about being an inch offside or not. Hopefully this farce will only last for a season.

    The pen retake was bizarre. Was it actually because fabianski didn't have a foot on the ball or because Rice came inside the box early?

    Mind you without VAR the score would likely be the exact same as one would’ve been given and one called off.

    That beautiful game where players try every form of cheating to get an advantage? Where mistakes from a referee have massive impact on the game, club or even the career of someone?

    VAR is great and here to stay.

    I imagine there will be an air of fear anytime we score because the slightest infringement and it disappears.

    The real relief will come when a screen says "Goal" and that is fecking grim as a football fan.

    Some seem quite happy to check their emotions until a monitor tells them it’s okay to release.

    I am not saying everything is perfect without it. But I firmly believe that watching a game of football is about great feelings and VAR dampens these thus ruining the experience.

    The problem with football is that many of the rules are there to stop players taking the piss, but in reality we have all accepted these rules being 'stretched' for 100+ years.

    Case in point - encroachment and goalkeepers being off their line at penalties. We all know what the rulebook says, but the rule is there to stop keepers being a yard away from the ball when it's kicked or to stop players being three/four yards into the area. Neither rule is meant to be measured in millimetres and inches

    It's not the VAR that's the problem, it's incompetent ref that can't follow if the keeper stayed on his line while the penalty was being taken. You need to be special idiot to use the VAR for that.

    The goal most people are complaining about is the one that was disallowed.
