I believe you can't  have some technology.  All in or not at all. 

Agree Brian.

Type 'Kevin Friend, Leicester' into the command prompt of the attack helicopter.

Make the technology work for us.
👏👏👏

Apparently there is a meeting planned this week of the PL with the referees to discuss how var is being implemented. Top of the agenda is the issue of them not using pitch side monitors. Every other league in Europe has been using them. What i find astounding is that we are a quarter of the way into the season and this is only being discussed now. Therefore the Premier League with all it's might and financial clout appear to have just sat back and given the refs carte blanche.

Surely Swarthick forgot to add the minus sign before the 7. Who on earth does he think he's kidding, this spin would embarrass a politician.  Just as idiotic as Gallagher trying to justify the unjustifiable with a straight face.  It's an unmitigated fuck up so far and every man, woman and their dogs know it. 

The ""atmosphere" line is pure Dowdism - I reserve the right to not give a foul in case I upset the ManYew/Plop plastic fans or Sky.

We have to make the man on the pitch make the ultimate decision and that means using the pitch side monitor.  The VAR should only be advising there might be something to look at.  That way they remain answerable for their decisions but can't hide behind a mate/subordinate/superior backing them up or bailing them out.  We'd also hopefully remove  excuses for "atmosphere" (bottler) decisions made in the heat of the moment.   

Yes, it's unbeliavable.  In what other billion pound industry would you get away with such a half-arsed way of introducing a radical new system?

Have you had any dealings with HMRC 😜

It won’t happen but football people in this high profile forum need to say it’s not working and lets scrap it before anymore damage is caused to our game

Yes indeed. In the recent past we have been quoted in the top end broadsheet newspapers.

Imagine driven from pressure from the premiership teams they decide to shelve it for a season and iron out the issues (A serious consideration IMHO) I guarantee the very next game a Manager / Coach etc will scream blue murder if they feel a decision has gone against them with out it.

We have opened Pandoras box with this im afraid

Anyone hear Purslow on the radio earlier?  The PL big wigs have had a meeting with Riley’s lot and made it clear how pissed off they are and want changes in speed of decision making, communication to the fans and videos of the incidents being looked at.  Christian comes across so well it must be said.  Glad he’s our CEO.

The big point was about the spontaneity of celebration, which is the heart of the game, being killed.

Hopefully referees being told to use pitchside monitors as well.

It's the number one reason why i believe var will ultimitely fail. I am also of the opinion that it's been deliberately sabotaged by the referees. The game belongs to the clubs and the fans not the bloody refs. They should be held responsible for this current fuckfest. What's to stop the PL setting up a kind of refereeing training centre? Train up some new guys to a high standard and get rid of the current crop? After all not one was adjudged good enough for the last world cup.

They have issued a statement saying that they will continue to use the monitors "sparingly"

Never ceases to amaze how often blinkered idiots get handed the controls to something.  But Football has a long history of it.

It's supposed to be clear and obvious.  What was so fucking clear and obvious about Sheffield United's disallowed goal last week.

It was clear and obvious that it was scored against Spurs.
