VAR has ruined football and everybody just let it happen.

"Clear and Obvious". Like saying Lampard's World Cup goal did go in, Taggart's header too. Our goal v Leeds wasn't offside because the ball was pulled back.

If it takes 5 minutes & 8 camera angles it ain't 'clear and obvious'.

I hope VAR is gone by the time we are back. This is shite


I'd have to stop watching us. I won't watch any 'live' game anymore that has VAR. I just hate it.

Think Barton is bang on


Joey Barton might be bang on there, but he's right less often than a broken clock.

 No doubt. On both points. I can’t believe it’s just happened and is accepted now.

It gives the Internet football fans something to argue about (when not shoehorning Messi and Ronaldo into everything) and generates content, it's what top flight football has become.

No doubt. It’s gash. I was surprised it’s being billed as one of the best Monday nights ever. Mind blowing, but as you say………

It’s just not for me. When we get back I will probably slope off. It’s a farce.

Surely it's only a matter of time before they have VAR in the championship, and realistically that's where we'll first have to endure it.

 I can’t see clubs being up for investing in it. Didn’t we sell our goal line technology as soon as we could ha due to becoming rubbish

In the Newcastle v Arsenal game it was said there wasnt conclusive camera angles to determine the three factors in the build up to the goal (looked a deffo push to me) so if the prem can't get it right then they shouldn't be rolling out further 

And imagine the standard of VAR you'll get in the championship if the Prem is a joke

I've no problem with it being used for off-sides.

The rest is so slow and cumbersome it's not worth it.

id agree

nothing else really

and only if its clearly visible to the naked eye at full speed

otherwise, bollocks to it

Barry Knight, The Everton goal, Galanza etc etc are all part of our history and another tale to tell.

Every club will have the same tales of woe.

Human error is part of what makes our game so impulsive and tribalistic.

Why do we have this quest to make some kind of utopian perfect game with no mistakes?
