Re: REPORT: VAR farce at the King Power

I was crammed as a bloody wasp all last night. Ask the mrs , who went to bed early before Match Of The Day came on.

Is it a single person checking the decisions at all the games or does each game have their own VAR ref There should be a panel of ex players, ref & managers watching each game. At least then there would be some consensus There is a VAR & AVAR for each game. I always name them when I do the ...
