Premier league clubs to vote on scrapping var for next season . what do you think.

Agree7 Disagree0

15 May 2024 18:13:33
On the fence but think the automatic offside tech should still be implemented as planned.

15 May 2024 18:18:39
I really hope so. It hasn’t enhanced the game at all.

15 May 2024 18:22:56
I would just go for semi automatic offside and goal technology and let the rest be judged by referee on the ground.

15 May 2024 18:34:23
VAR hasn't worked because the people implementing it aren't up to scratch. They can't make consistent decisions, even with video replays.

Scrapping it won't reduce the number of "wtf was he thinking? " moments, Webb will just be able to say 'the ref didn't see it' when he's on Sky Sports.

15 May 2024 18:35:17
VAR has taken the enjoyment out of the game . and the Refs have gone worse too .

15 May 2024 18:38:13
F. k it off. To put it nicely or get some people who haven't been bought with money to run in properly.

15 May 2024 18:57:10
Bin it off. Fair play to wolves for having the balls to stand up.

15 May 2024 19:00:09
Needs a rugby league type system. Yes they have the odd mistake but nowhere near the same amount.

The fans aren't constantly moaning about bad calls and the refs are respected by players. I honestly don't know why it's so difficult to get right with a bit of common sense.

15 May 2024 19:00:56
W automated offsides it serves no purpose. The play acting has gone off the scale since VAR came in. It won't solve that issue completely but the game will be much better without it. There will be some wrong decisions throughout the season like there used to be but for me refs get more wrong w VAR than they ever did without it. Bin it and give us back the passion of football that we've been missing.

15 May 2024 19:02:56
Exactly, Something Red and that is what people are missing. The PGMOL did NOT want VAR to be implemented to begin with as it would take away some of their power over games that keep them famous in the media. So they implemented it in a way to cause chaos and turn people off to the point that now, it could be voted out hence, power is back to Webbo and his bros. Mission Accomplished, me thinks!

15 May 2024 19:07:10
Successfully sabotaged by the PGMOL with utterly horrendous implementation .

Self preservation by PGMOL.

15 May 2024 19:16:47
The automated offside will be in i think so I don't see the need for it anymore, if they could use it properly might be a different story.

15 May 2024 19:31:07
My personal view beyond binning it off is that it should be like cricket, each manager having two appeals each half, lose the appeal if VAR says the decision made by the ref is right and keep it of proven wrong. Goal line decisions being the only thing automatic and VAR being operated by experts who aren’t referees.

15 May 2024 19:32:00
Ron, Oli, personally I wouldn't go as far as suggesting they deliberately sabotaged it (although I can understand that point of view), I think it's just simple incompetence, followed up with a dose of ass covering from Webb when he's talking to Michael Owen on Monday nights.

It's abundantly clear that Webb is quite happy to talk his way out of nearly any ref's decision, no matter how inconsistent with previous ones. So I don't think the presence or lack thereof of VAR will make a difference to him and the PGMOL.

15 May 2024 19:35:10
How long before everyone wants it’s back when there is a terrible decision week one?

I stand by the fact that VAR isn’t the issue, it’s how it’s implemented.

They should be mic’d up, the crowd being in the dark isn’t good for the game. Ideally they’d be screens but not sure that’s viable in most grounds.

Stop slow mo replays, it should be full speed only. Final call with the ref.

And keep with the rollout of semi automated offsides which fixes its biggest problem of offsides (hopefully! ) .

Long term I’d have it independent from PGMOL and effectively have two teams. I think there is still an element of not wanting to say a ref called it wrong.

15 May 2024 22:47:12
WYred, you better believe that the same people saying for ages that VAR should be scrapped will be some of the same people screaming for it to return when they realize that things were actually NOT better without it. We will all be here to see it happen.

15 May 2024 22:53:48
There is nothing wrong with VAR, at least from a technical perspective.

The basic problem is the people applying the technology are prone to human error and once they get a decision wrong it undermines both the trust of the fans in not only VAR but also the match officials .

It has happened far too many times. VAR, as it currently stands should be withdrawn, ‘fixed’ in terms of the human component in whatever way that may be, and them gradually re-introduced on an incremental basis - national leagues first, then Leagues 1 and 2 and then PL and Championship.

There’s also work needed around who triggers the VAR review and under what circumstances and who (or what) acts as QA to verify the VAR decision - maybe something along the lines of RL or RU where the referee provides an on-field decision which stands if VAR checking is inconclusive or in doubt.

15 May 2024 23:06:34
VAR, theoretically, a brilliant tool.

Alas, unfortunately managed by tools.

15 May 2024 23:25:59
The technology has glitches but the main issue with VAR is the people who are using the technology.

They have made some terrible mistakes and they are not showing signs of significant improvement

As it stands VAR has spoilt enjoyment for the fans and in its present guise it should be scrapped.

16 May 2024 00:00:22
I'll take bad decisions before incidents being overanalysed and emotions being drained from the game.
No one watches a game to see the referee get every decision correct. We watch it to get us on our feet and losing ourselves even if for only a few seconds.
Sod right decisions ? and not every decision can be correct anyway.

16 May 2024 00:03:09
gets more right than wrong.
need to fine tune the process and language around purpose of VAR to enahnce it.
caveman mentality to get rid of it because of the big mistakes. move forward and make it better. don't just go backwards.

16 May 2024 00:13:34
Please end VAR now it's bloody awful.

16 May 2024 01:33:14
absolutely no one will be thankful there is no VAR when there is goal after goal given or denied due to a an errant flag.

16 May 2024 01:40:32
Scrap the lot, it was better beforehand. I aren't really bothered and will be ignorant to specifics. It was better before it was implemented, get rid of it.

16 May 2024 06:22:09
Id get rid of it but also get rid of Webb and bring in the grim reaper Collina himself. Pay him whatever he wants for 3 years to sort out the refs and rescue the EPL. money worth spending imo.

16 May 2024 07:50:11
Faith, Sometimes I used to behave like a caveman when we scored. Now I think 'hang on, how can this goal be ruled out? '
I could record games and watch them knowing the score and what happened and why but I'd sooner be a caveman for a couple of hours.
That's what football is for me when I watch it; especially Liverpool. It's a release.

16 May 2024 07:56:49
The absolute idiots could not even see that it was a pen on Gordon tonight when I challenge anyone in the world to see that as anything but a penalty. The humans implementing it are unfit for purpose. But that is the same all over the world in positions of power.

The peasants are in most cases the ones who see things clear as they are not blinded by the disgusting stench of corruption. It’s quite funny that perused call footballers out for their lack of intelligence but they seem to be being ruled by people of zero intelligence whatsoever.

A truly sorry state of affairs the worst season I can ever remember for wrong decisions being given that where clearly wrong as clear as day.
