Var decisions should take no longer 10 sec otherwise refs on field decision counts. Clear and Obvious should be the criteria.
I was meant to be but never happened. They somehow managed to forget or ignore that pretty important  point.

I wish they would retire VAR with him.

From the Beeb:

"Breaking news
The Premier League is to review the operation of VAR with referees' organisation PGMOL as a matter of priority.

More to follow."

VAR has gone to VAR.

Verdict - not enough information to overturn VAR.

As Iíve said before (Iím sure) all it seems to have done is pass the controversy to some person sat watching a replay, rather the actual ref. Itís also a very poor experience to the actual paying spectator.

TBF it was offsideÖbut 4 1/2 minutes to check it and the spectators had no clue.

Itís a joy killer

Yep, the time was the problem there, not the decision.

I am for it in principle. But the implementation of the rules donít seem right. This weekend has seemed a mess all round for VAR & officials.

It took Rugby 10 years to get TMO working and they introduced this with very little preparation.
Itís a complete fuck up.

Not mentioning the goal that Villa had disallowed because the stupid linesman didn't allow play to continue so that the outcome could be VARred as required. Doesn't suit the narrative to mention when the Sky 6 have had a decision against them.
