Bizzarely... I'm not sure i do.

There's a part of football which allows me to feel robbed. To blame someone else Etc

The same part of football allows me to laugh when things go our way.

It also allows me to engage with other people who have a different opinion. 

Whilst i understand the need for VAR (especially with the money that is on the line) I'll miss that part of football when it's gone.

So if VAR could be used the in the championship eventually, play off final we're robbed of going up because of an offside goal, would you rather be robbed or promoted? I'd rather the right decision.

Obviously i wouldnt want City to be robbed in any circumstances. 

But I can't help but feel VAR will eventually errode some of the emotional elements that are part of the reasons i love this simple game in the first place.

I know it's daft - just how i feel.

VAR is only a thing because of a number of high profile awful decisions.

It's being brought in to eradicate them, but it's treating the symptoms, not the cause. Which is a decline in refereeing standards.

 

I agree.

And It's not the marginal decisions that are the problem. If last nights goal had stood the general opinion would have been "he was offside but it was so difficult to tell in real time".

Whereas Azplilcuetas goal against cardiff the other week was an unbelievablely bad decision.

If the officals were getting ones like that right then there would be less calls/need for VAR.

There is that but I still prefer it ending in a correct decision. 

I agree that the correct decision is what we want. 

For me, not so much to ensure the refs mistakes are cleared up, but to address the unfairness of cheating.

There has always been good and  bad decisions, mistakes have always been made  by officials. But players make far more mistakes than officials, also players cheat, officials do not. 

I think our officials are bloody brilliant, it’s the hardest job on the football pitch, these officials are ‘now’ under intense scrutiny because of the amount of TV games and cameras. A linesman gets one look at an incident, the referee gets one look from ‘his angle’ at any incident. TV viewers get about 10 views from different camera angles. Most bad decisions aren’t picked up until the armchair experts have seen at least 2-3 replays!!!

 I’ve a son who is a referee at a decent level, he’s still young and potentially could go a long way, people who constantly criticise referees don’t realise the constant scrutinising of every decision they make, not just from players and coaches ( some who don’t even know the laws of the game, seriously) but from the accessors who are severely strict. 

Everything a referee does, from his pre match talk and warm up, to his positioning at corners and even how he. blows his whistle are marked. It really is incredible how in depth everything they do is looked at and reflected in their marks. 

It amazes me how so many on forums like this slag off referees,  but they themselves ( this isn’t aimed at you cider-manc ) have never attempted to referee a game and never will. I just wish some would try it, they would then actually understand what it entails.  

Being an official in ANY football match is one of the hardest things to do, doing it at the highest level with the hatred and criticism that goes with it ,must be horrendous at times.

Trouble I have with VAR is its suppose to be a clear and obvious mistake. 

Aguero is offside by 1cm that isn’t clear and obvious, but if spurs had cleared the ball and Man City had scored 3 seconds later he wouldn’t be offside for it’s the next phase.  Same as with Salah Liverpool first goal against Southampton, surely offside is offside no matter where it is in the goal. Player has gained an advantage they shouldn’t have had.

Personally it’s either all in the build up to a goal or none at all. Ref must see every angle possible not one after on TV ref didn’t see Llorente goal.

Should just be left as it was goal line technology and that’s it. Some teams get to use it in FA Cup and some don’t how’s that fair.
