Shocking mis-use of it in many games today. Not fit for purpose.

From what I have seen and heard I would say it has been VAR's darkest day so far. I look forward to the MOTD verdicts on our game, the Wolves game and the Spurs game.

VAR needs to be suspended until next season. A complete (sensible) review needs to be carried out. A complete and utter shambles run by idiots.

Was ours today the first time it has gone against the referee?

I've watched it back three times now, and I still can't see what it was overruled for.  If it's supposed to be used for 'clear and obvious errors' then that certainly wasn't one.

VAR is an absolute disgrace.  I haven't seen a single instance of it doing anything right this season.

Itís a giant fun sponge, sucking all the joy out of celebrating goals. Scrap it.

I get that every set of fans think that the refs/VAR have it in for them etc but fuck me we really have been on the end of some pathetic decisions already this season.

I think it's now safe to assume that VAR will not disallow our winning goal.

I jumped up at my desk at work and fled forward like a bit of a twat when Targett got the winner, I quickly realised that I needed to get back to my screen asap and watch the replay carefully to be sure my outburst wasn't in vain. It shouldn't be like this.

At least do away with this Ďchecking every goalí cobblers, itís a recipe for disallowing goals on really tenuous grounds, and it takes far too long. Refer goals to VAR if thereís some genuine doubt over them, or give each side two reviews a half, and a time limit for calling them.

it needs to be VAR like at the world cup - where the referee still has the final decision

It's the God-awful 'experts' analysing the VAR that's the problem not the system itself. They should mirror the rugby set-up and also allow us to hear the conversations between the ref and the visually- and hemispherically -challenged twats in Stockley Park.

I donít think VAR is the problem, itís the way itís being applied. It really does need to be stopped for the rest of the season while thought is given as to how make best use of it. For me, the ref needs to be able to access a monitor at the side of the pitch when concern is raised.
