I agree red was harsh.

I had actually assumed Son had been booked for his laughable dive 10 minutes before (was nearly as bad as Mane's) so thought it was a second yellow.

VAR won't improve radically until they have competent refs on the pitch AND behind the screens -something I can't see happening anytime soon.

Every weekend you think it can't possibly be as bad as the one before, yet every week they actually make worse decisions.  They must genuinely be trying to nobble it, it can be the only explanation for the unremitting shitness of the experiment.

Think Risso is right, did the referees even want it brought in ?  The Precious tw*ts were scared it would undermine them or diminish their authority weren't they?

Iíve thought the same for a few weeks. They think it undermines them so are doing their utmost to make it fail. Twenty first century luddites.

One thing to be said for VAR - it's fantastic for referee job creation! Does it really take two of them to make decisions as mind boggling as they do?!

Before long there'll be more refs than players!

For the last game of the season there will be 4 officials at 10 games and 10 sets of VAR officials. There are 19 Premier League refs. They already call them up from the Championship then on down the food chain.

Itís about to get worse, with managers pressing for 3 VAR appeals per game.
Can you just imagine it?

That's what should happen, take it out of the hands of officials to decide what gets reviewed. That cheating c*** wouldn't have been able to prevent our goal at Palace, then.

I'd maybe go for one per half and an extra one for extra time then an extra one for penalties, rather than three each, but it would seem a step in the right direction.

I think that might be a better system to use you know like they do in Tennis where you get 2 challenges per set.

Instead of VAR checking every single decision, the manager gets maybe 1 challenge per half to use VAR. Every other decision is what the referee in the middle says like the good old days. If the manager uses VAR wrongly to have an offside decision checked, then 5 minutes later the ref misses a stonewall penalty but nothing can be done because the 1 VAR has already been used on an offside then tough.

My concern is managers would use them to disrupt the game, it would become a tactical weapon. Maybe one and if it was a correct appeal they still have it.
There is usually only one big incident.per match.

Fully implement VAR correctly or fully fuck it off. There is no way this half arsed version should have been introduced to the game. The match referees and VAR officials need to be fully trained, all aspects of the technology used (ie the pitch side screens), and clear rules that state when it should be used. The rules of the game also need to be updated to remove so many of the grey areas that remain to be subjective (if itís subjective then the final call has to be with the ref using the pitch side screen).
