I didn’t say I had the answer but trying to get ex professionals into refereeing isn’t it.

I guess trying to get young people interested and improving coaching would be more realistic.

Re: Var needs to be put in professional hands

Do it like Rugby League. Everybody sees the screen and including the ref , the players and the fans. Slow motion and frame by frame are included where necessary. Was it a foul , a dive , or an attempt by the defender to con the ref? would the defender have any chance of preventing the ball crossing...

Re: Time to get rid of VAR

Man City have just been denied a penalty by VAR, in what looked far more like a foul than Wood's today. That kind of blows my theory that they've changed the way it's being implemented out of the water. Should have booked DeBruyne for diving. He did the Jamie Vardy trick of sticking his leg out, wa...

Re: Var needs to be put in professional hands

I know that VAR can overrule a ref and disallow a ‘goal’ or award a goal that a ref has disallowed. I didn’t know that a ref could overrule VAR so what would be the point of Moss checking a monitor AFTER VAR has given a ruling? Moss could have taken the decision into his own hands and checked the m...

Re: Var needs to be put in professional hands

Again a Var decision is wrong for Burnley. I’m totally in favour of var being introduced, but the var referees have to be X professionals, either managers/players/coaches. Today’s goal if viewed by an x professional would never have been disallowed. No intent on the foul, no chance Evans would have...

the thing is tht even under the 'VAR' rules, its only supposed to overturn clear and obvious errors, which this wasn't. That’s the big one for me.

I tend to agree. It really hasn’t added anything to the game but judging ‘level’ offside decisions one way or the other.

The VAR disallowed the goal, not Moss, but he could have gone to the screen considering that at that stage of the game the decision was likely to define the result. But he couldn’t be bothered.
