Normally the ref bottles it sending someone of early in the game (such as Vidic on Gabby), but guess with VAR they are more accountable for making consistent decisions

Well, second year in and VAR is proving to be a bigger bag of shit than last season. The impact of VAR is getting worse, not better.
The powers that be have tried to fix something that wasnít broken and have succeeded in fucking it up completely.

Penalties given after the final whistle, penalties for handball where the players back is turned, itís become Even more of a joke.

Before VAR, there was the odd game that was affected by bad decisions. Now itís multiple games, week in, week out that are being ruined by this bloody nightmare.

You can add the microscopic movement of a keeper during penalties. Bloody ridiculous, if your good at penalties the keeper has no chance, even if he moves a fraction of a second first.

They can move around these days, but they can't encroach, as has always been the case. Isn't it why linesmen were always positioned where they were, to watch for it? Our 'keeper managed it.

But again itís something over analysed, what was wrong with the naked eye of the linesman? Now we have to watch over the same penalty again to see if the camera picked early movement, which can be a micro second depending on the ref at the time. Another ref might have ruled Martinez moved a zilch too soon.

Ridiculous penalty for Newcastle.  How you can penalise a player with his back to the ball, god only knows.

It is the rule though. VAR is just enforcing it.

It is, but as was said last season, the rules were written expecting refs to employ their own judgement. Sadly now with VAR the rules are being applied literally.

VAR isn't the cause of the problem but it's resulted in a problem that didn't exist before.

The cynic in me still thinks that refs are being literal in interpreting the rules so we can all see how fantastic they were in the days before VAR!

I think the problems are a couple of things, itís no longer ball to hand if your a defender. Your arms have to be by your side, which can be tricky for anyone who moves. Also the other issue I think is everything is so scrutinised.
