In the ground you normally donít have any idea whatís going on, you need to find out afterwards what the decision was and why. All itís doing is making people angry.

There's a big difference in looking for reasons to disallow a goal and seeing an obvious foul handball etc that needs to be overturned.

With the offsides, as soon as your zooming in and drawing lines everywhere like it's a photo finish of the 100 metre final you're beyond parody.

I think the Russians at the World Cup had the least crap version (which wasn't great) our lot have somehow made it even worse.

Ruining the game we love - not because its either right or wrong, but because it has become such a distraction that fans cant celebrate goals for 1-2 mins in many cases and, I would argue its often being over-used for the most ridiculous "fractional" decisions.

And it's so easy to fix - look at Rugby Union which, is also a fast moving contact sport.  The PL management is an abominable disgrace to the game

Absolutely. I don't think there has been one example in those whole sorry mess of a referee going to look at a pitchside monitor to review a decision.Fair play to the ref in that video - if only ours had done that for the foul on Wesley.

When you have Burnley fans joining in with "it's not football any more" after a decision has gone their way then you know something is seriously wrong. I posted the Villa on Tour video from yesterday and there was virtually no celebration when Wes scored, you're seeing more and more goals scored where players and fans don't celebrate. There is no point to the game if the most important part of a game is being killed. I was in favour of VAR but the version we have is is fucking shit.

It was the same at OT after Tyrone's goal. Very half hearted, everyone just assumed VAR would chalk it off for offside, even though the linesman had got it right. The goal celebrations started at the kick off.

People said this wouldn't happen, well, it is.

I still haven't seen the rationale for the instruction that our refs should not use the screen. What is it?

Think they said it was due to time...which is clearly bolx. At Burnley it took so long that it genuinely felt like they were trying to find reasons to disallow the goal and making it up as they go along.

I personally think they were instructed not to use it so that some of them weren't made to look bigger c***s than they already are.  ie, Kevin Friend!

I think his heel probably was offside, but it wasn't "clear and obvious" so they shouldn't have overturned the on pitch decision. Plus, the goal was scored a different phase of playing, so there was no need to even look at whether Wesley was offside in the first place.

They've been prepared to look at how it works in Rugby union and adapt it for football.  Why we can't do that I'll never know.

Rather pointless as the picture as seen on TV with those yellow and red lines which are not accurate as the picture is not exactly in line with Wes's heel in conjunction with the exact moment it was played forward.

As things stand if any part is off side its offside. Personally I think it should be changed to the part of the body that makes contact with the ball. Rather than any body part which can legally touch the ball.
