Yes I agree. Sheff Utd have been poor since restart. Look okay today, mind.

Good goal from Sheff Utd! Thought the change was gone when Berge took it off the other guy but a very nice finish.

Omg that's actually been disallowed. That is a horrible decision. How can Lucas avoid that xD

VAR has ruined football as a spectator spot. Can’t celebrate any goal any more. 
 

That pathetic handball rule that’s come with it too.

Again, how can anyone take that decision seriously?

Just remember that the referee's union will meet up and discuss decisions like that one and the Soucek disallowed goal yesterday and convince themselves that somehow justice has been done and a prominent former referee will come on BT or Sky tomorrow and explain to us how that's always been the rule and we just don't understand the rules well enough and "as you can clearly see wibble wibble wibble leaving the referee no other option wibble wibble wibble arrived at the correct decision wibble wibble wibble 97% correct decisions since the technology was introduced".

Every football fan up and down the country can see these decisions aren't making games more fair and that's all that matters. PGMOL need the equivalent of Supernanny to come in and get them to sort their shit out. While I accept they get a lot of unfair criticism at times and don't want to be undermined further, they've reached a point now where they just double down on everything and seem to think if they admit they get the odd thing wrong instead of maintaining this false aura of infallibility then players will soon be allowed to knock them out on the pitch with impunity. What are they so scared of that they can't admit some of these decisions are unfairly altering results?

Said it from day one mate. Its criminal what VAR has done to the game. 

Anyway, when is Mourinho getting sacked? He's done, dusted as a top tier manager.

Said this on Twitter, but when I watched the Club World Cup in 2016, I knew immediately that this would fail. I thought that would be a common opinion but then I saw people defending it. Unbelievable really, I was shocked and disgusted to find that out.

It's been 4 years and people still say "gIvE iT tImE". Hilarious.

3-0! McBurnie completes the victory. Good work by Berge in the build-up.

Why is Sanchez not goalside of McBurnie xD? Tries to tackle and block from the wrong side.

I prefer a tainted sport and daisy's like Neymar 1000 times over an artificial sport with celebrating being guesswork. 

VAR was never going to work and the fact people defended it was saddening. Almost like they wanted to see the sport die.

Hardly. Bit much to say you were shocked and disgusted at people with a difference in opinion.

Opinions are fine but not when it could negatively impact the sport. I care about football and that's why I don't tolerate those who defend it.

Again, it's not the technology, it's the handling of its implementation by people who have been getting away with doing their admittedly very difficult jobs to a mediocre standard having only been held properly to account by their current or former colleagues for as long as I can remember.

I still haven't completely flushed down the toilet my conspiracy theory that they don't want more technology in the game as it exposes their on pitch errors so they're deliberately making a complete farce of VAR so that it gets taken away after a season or two and they don't have to worry about it for a decade.

The concept of VAR is like communism. Great in theory, terrible in practice. And it will always be that way if there's a human in charge.  It's a shame but it doesn't really change much unless it's an AI making the decisions, and I don't think we're that far into the future unfortunately.

All you need is a human in charge that doesn't expect other humans to be physically capable of ejecting their arms from their body on demand to prevent them from handling the ball when they can't do anything else about it. I'll do it ffs.

I really don't have a problem with anyones opinion bud, but let me put it in terms you'll understand.

If person A wants to kill somebody on the street and Person B disagrees, is it not OK for Person B to get angry and not tolerate that kind of behaviour?

It's the same here really. If you think it's a good theory, that's fine! I agree with it too. But if you look deeper into it you'll find that all it will do is kill the sport for spectators and even the players.

Comparing VAR to killing someone? 

What a take.
