VAR is fine - the way we use it is moronic.


100% correct. I have no idea why in this country the ref's ego or standing has to be a factor. Refs should not be famous. They should do their job and call the games. That's it.

Whether the ref is being "undermined" is not a factor. The rules exist for a fair game, and the rules should be enforced fairly and correctly. I watch a lot of Serie A, MLS, and the Bundesliga, and VAR works fine there. The English FA, as usual, is being a bunch of dinosaurs, afraid of stepping on their ref chummies' toes. It's ludicrous.

Watching the City game against Atlanta and the use of VAR is much much better and the ref takes complete responsibility by going to check himself the penalty decision. The EPL refs should learn

Why should the ref's employ a dog and then bark themselves? Surely they can rely on those already employed reading and scrutinising the monitors?
VAR slows things up enough as it is, without the ref's trundling off to view a monitor when he has the relevant information already in his ear.


Yes I understand what you are saying but when VAR is new and we look at the experience of the referee Atkinson against that of the VAR official we are talking about 15 years in PL v 15 games in the PL. Given that level of experience difference we are not going to get much reversed unless the man in the middle can own up to his error.

Yes I can see the point there. What I don't understand is how Atkinson got to be in charge of the Var, given his well known decisions where Liverpool is concerned?
