We've had exactly a year of whiny little boys crying about offside & busses:VAR: Gets decisions 100% correct: leaves their dreams in tatters: They Whine! Pepa continues his abject failure in the only Cup the owners covert.The European Cup: They Whine even more!Get ready for another year of similar whines!Thanks VAR: Already a legend for that single night of Joy!* * * * *
After seeing the ‘behind the goal’ footage Llorente has now admitted to teammates and friends it was handball
VAR can be a little slow sometimes, otherwise there is no problem with it. There is a problem with the offside rule. What a stupid, pointless rule? It is time to scrap offside so that the players can get on with the job of scoring goals.
The away goal rule is there to stop teams just putting 11 players behind the ball. It works, why change it.The penalty against Spurs wasn't an issue with VAR, it's the handball rules that are the problem.
They've been operating a system very much like VAR in American Football for years. And yet with all the money spent and years of experience running it look what happened in this year's NFC Championship game: even having stopped the game for ages and had the officials look at the incident on screen they STILL got a history-changing moment spectacularly wrong.
I think VAR is a positive, provided that it gets the crucial decisions right. If nothing else, the decisions can be understood better and hopefully, in the main, justified. Referees often make bad, game changing mistakes, mistakes which they are never held accountable for. VAR takes away a large amount of that sense of injustice if a crucial decision is proven to be correct.
Did Spurs vote for VAR to be used this season?If not, it would be the supreme irony that a club who voted for VAR are dumped out of the cup on the basis of a VAR decision given in favour of a club who voted against it.
It adds to the excitement! But there should be more interaction\communication with fans - there is in other sports. Very sad for the way it happened to City but they will rise again. Good luck to them & Liverpool in the title race
Sanitising the beautiful game! Will eventually become a bore!
Having been watching football for some 50 years or more I think the var is improving, and on this occasion was spot on and the referee was first class throughout. How many England fans would have liked var in Argentina’s game in 1986?
will make the inevitable spurs semi final bottle show even more entertaining!
Cruel but dramaticI am not a fan of either team and have no axe to grind but think that VAR got this one right.Guardiola says it was cruel but to be fair he does not say the decisions were wrong. Cruel is about right in the sense that the emotions can go from euphoria to despair whilst the review is under way.Had VAR been in operation at Swansea then city would not be in the FA Cup final.
VAR has taken away the joy of celebrating the ball hitting the back of the net as now we will always be half celebrating whilst watching the referee to see if he is going to review the goal. Yes the right result is important but at what cost? If the correct result is all that matters, how far do you take it? Review all decisions after the match then amend the result accordingly the next day?
