That’s Premier League African Car Reverser to you.
To commemorate the levels of chaos normally reserved for African football*, a new special limited edition EP (so rare you may never actually see it):

‘African VAR Reverser’

Do we have any African referees in the Premier League? Trying to work out the odds of getting an actual African VAR Reverser.

You couldn’t make it up could you?
Further update, looking it up that decision itself was reversed to go back to the original result https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/49273022

The decision to put up a blue plaque on andyaston's house was reversed by VAR on the grounds that it had no claret on it.

You could always ask Luke Roper to create one and trade off two established names for the price of one?

Is Andy still around? Hope he wasn't chased off the Internet for not being 'woke' enough.

Just giving this a bump (often happens when reversing) from East Africa as part of the build up today, served us well in preparation for the last trip to Wembley...

Disappointing that someone didn’t bump this thread on its seventh anniversary :)

Hmmm. Prompted by Pauliewalnuts description of Samatta’s parking challenges:
(beyond the OP’s 2nd comment still being there) no harm in bumping this thread, I think we’ve tried pretty much everything else, may African or frankly any miracles in our favour abound.

My son, Holte Lower RR 114, has bought the back catalogue of Tales of the Unexpected.  The African Car Reverser must have an episode in any future series.  I just realized the ACR  would be a perfect replacement on any plinth vacated by toppled slave traders.  If ever the statue of Nigel Mansell gets put up in Brum, the ACR would be a perfect companion piece.  Nige could be BCR.  Brummie Car Racer.
