    Ridiculous.
    They need to deem everything onside unless there is daylight between the last defender and the striker. If there isn't, it's level and onside.

    The people running VAR are turning the game into a laughing stock, you have to be a total anal retentive to come up with some of these decisions...

    You wouldn't mind if the linesman had made a haims of the decision but look at his position, perfectly placed to decide he's onside only to be overruled by a pixel.....

    Not football but worth a mention.

    Rachel Blackmore became the first woman to ride the winner of the Grand National. Great achievement by her. She is some jockey.

    The first 5 home were all trained in Ireland.

    Football fun for science teachers, Americans and train spotters.

    I backed the winner because she was on it, Finglas. Superb jockey.

    She is from a little village in Co. Tipperary called Killenaule. If you get a few free drinks tonight, you can have a sing song, it's a long way to Tipperary. Lol.

    Enjoy Stroller. Delighted for you. Half the country over here seem to have backed it. I should be shot for picking something which finished nowhere.

    After his team is beaten by Newcastle Sean Dyche (pronounced Dick) bleats on about how little money he has to spend on new players. I’m just amazed that a man of his talent hasn’t been snapped up by one of the ‘big’ clubs......

    I would love Fulham to stay up at Burnley’s expense.

    Is there anyone left who thinks VAR was a good idea?

    It’s hard to imagine how they could make such a total hash of the technology tbh. Every other sport seems to make a good and generally positive use of it - but football, especially our EPL, seems totally capable of ****ing it up!

    I think it should be used at top levels in a far more limited form, for goal line, and side line technology, to avoid goals like the one Clint scored at Bolton we could see was in from behind the opposite goal, not being given.

    What I've seen of it in use, ruling offsides on finger nails, ruling goals out for the slightest touch like Man Uniteds last night is slowing down the game, cancelling perfectly decent goals, and encouraging play acting / cheating like Son's.

    The drawing lines on a monitor thing can get in the bin. Even if you go for a ‘daylight’ rule you don’t lose that faff.

    Giving the ref an opportunity to have a second look at a potential red card or foul that could prevent a goal shouldn’t be going as contentiously as it is. There’s always going to be inconsistency with calls like Son’s and the one Tarkowski wasn’t penalised for. It would help a lot if the ref’s decisions after seeing a replay were explained afterwards as they’re hamstrung a bit by laws of the game which go against what the bloke on the street would assume to be the right decision. Nobody wants to see Son given a free-kick for that.

    I think the concept is good. It tends to be right on offside's most of the time and it tells for definite if the ball has crossed the line.

    Regarding contact in the box, 9 out of 10 times any sort of contact is given as a penalty and the acting by the players seems to have increased an awful lot. They are all going down screaming, pretending to be injured for nothing. It is more noticeable now without crowds as you can hear every sound in the stadium. The Spurs V Man United match yesterday had at least 20 dives in it, both teams totally over reacting to any sort of contact.

    Bin it. It’s not ready yet. I’d rather have refs and linos cocking it up without the pseudo science of poorly drawn angles read by a twat in a studio.
