We wouldn't need VAR if the laws on handball and offside were simple and clear to all.

Handball - deliberate arm to ball.

Offside - foot in front of the last man, at the time the ball is kicked.

I watch our other youth teams, the championship, I never miss VAR.

Refs do make mistakes, so have clear simple rules to make their task easier.

We wanted VAR to work but it didn't, and everything we have done to make it work has made it even worse.



Agree completely we should have kept the game simple,just as you say. But once TV got its hands on the game it was never going to be simple again. I have said this elsewhere but VAR has only happened because TV was already doing off field introspection of decisions. Now it does off field inspection of VAR decisions.
The bottom line is some rules now are so vague they can only be thought contentious when ruled on ,no matter the system. Someone back in the thread says it needs ex players. I wouldn’t agree simply because the players want it all ways as long as it goes their way. Most changes we see have happened because of player,manager whinging .
Take Wilf, he can’t move unless someone grabs , pushes, kicks ,trips him, and all he gets is he goes down to easy , he buys it ,and so on. This is what the players want until it smacks them in the face.

Deliberate Handball is not a Simple rule.

Handball is a Simple Rule, but one you start adding players thought processes in (i.e. it was deliberate), it becomes one for interpretation by the ref.

Offside is a simple Rule, but VAR in it's current state isn't good enough to accurately determine it in those times that it's 'marginal'
It needs changing; and here's how:
1) Ignore arms. Torso, legs and head are the only thing that can be offside.
2) a 'buffer' added to the attackers 'line'. say 30cm. If the VAR lines then overlap, you stick with the onfield decision.

Really, the only was to Stop this speculation by the pundits is to have the Refs explain their decisions. or be mic'd up. or both.

The implementation is shocking. We were certainly fortunate on Saturday, but I've seen far worse VAR decisions which didn't hit the headlines.

Said it before and I will again... Scrap it for normal play and give each captain 1 review per game to be used on penalty/goal/red card incidents. Captain will keep the review if they correctly overturn the decision. 20 second limit to review from two angles - shouldn't need more time than that to spot a 'clear and obvious' error.

VAR was introduced to prevent phantom goal situations and clear errors which might realistically happen 5 times a season. Not interfering with every goal incident. Can't celebrate goals anymore. Hate it.

Retrospective bands for diving should also be reintroduced. Good idea, but never implemented properly.

One can just imagine Staveley chocking on her saveloy as the Newcastle goal was disallowed.

I think you may be correct on all points . Some very strange comments about taking things forward with the authorities!

Absolutely agree with everything there.

Tennis the most obvious comparison for me but not 3 'challenges' I'd say 1 'challenge' per half or even game.

If you get it right, keep it. If wrong, you lose it. Teams would then be far more selective about which decisions they'd want reviewed and ultimately be responsible for their own fate. Would draw attention away from referees for criticism too or expose them for how useless they are.

 


Now Zaha's got a bit of green grass ahead of him here... and finds Ambrose... not a bad effort!!!!

The problem with this is that, the same idiots are making the decisions

Amazing that the only league in the world that VAR does not work in is the Premier league!

Yep very true.

Unfortunately the incompetency of officiating in football for me has been ever present. It is as though they've all read the book and done the course however never played the game in their lives.

Which is why I prefer the 'buffer' for offside It's one less complicated decision for them to make; any doubt, then it's the onfield decision.

I know a gentleman who detests VAR and seemingly every conversation I have with him contains a diatribe from this chap expressing his view in forthright fashion.

One of the issues he has raised concerning the celebration of goals with players and supporters unsure if a goal is to be awarded, often having to endure a break in play whilst the referee is waiting for the dialogue from the VAR.In bygone days one simply had to look at the referee's signal confirming the goal.

He also expressed the view that the authorities over the years have tried to aid the flow of the game citing the back pass to the goalkeeper and the multi-ball system yet now the game is interrupted by the referee having to wait for the VAR and in some instances having to refer to the pitchside monitor.

He has also asserted that in bygone days one found fault with the decisions of the referee, now fault is found not only with the referee but the VAR.
And don't get him started on "Clear and obvious" !

The trouble with a 'buffer' is where does the buffer end? The offside rule in theory is very black and white - as is the line call in a tennis match. We just need to keep it simple - using the end of the foot is the obvious solution. It becomes a total nonsense when we start using shoulders/arms etc.

As per my previous comment, only refer to the offside VAR if the linesman's decision was challenged.
