VAR is obviously an important step forward, after all the major reffing mistakes that were not corrected. I feel that it's in the same state as the first season of umpiring reviews in cricket, where there were some clear problems which were sorted during the close season. There are always marginal calls and decisions in most sports and it's the very tight ones which take the time, as with our winner yesterday. I think it's the most significant VAR call in any of our matches so far, and am just relieved it came out right for us.

I think it's exciting waiting for the decision it'll soon become part of the game and will become quicker, everyone wants the right outcome. Eventually linesmen will not have the job of deciding offside, it'll all be computerised.

VAR has been good for us so far but we will have decisions go against us at some point.

Its what everyone wanted, wrong refereeing decisions being corrected. If it means having to wait a little while while they review it then surely its worth it. Look how long it takes to review an LBW in cricket.

Perhaps it should be renamed VAL (Assistant Virtual Linesman). Almost all the decisions overturned by VAR in the Premier League this season have been due to close call offside decisions rather than changing the verdict of the referee.

You have made a valid point.

In terms of "Close offside decisions" I have had a view
propounded that there should certain parameters in play to rule out very marginal decisions for incidents which could not possibly be seen by the naked eye. In cricket if an umpire does not award an LBW,his decision can stand even if ball tracking deems the ball would have hit the stumps but only just clipped them ie a certain % of the ball would have to hit the stumps for the decision to be over-turned.But of course this can open up a further debate apropos introducing such parameters into the VAR arena.Well done to VAR on Saturday !!!!

It's been a mixed bag so far I'd say. Not the complete disaster that I anticipated and quite good for us so far.
