Just have the VAR person, inform the referee when he's possibly missed something.

Referee HAS to go and double check. Referee watches replay, makes final decision.

It is nowhere near as hard as they're making it look.

Only took the brain trust 9 months!

In other words, just like rugby's been doing it for years!

Is this the new process? If so, that's infinitely better.

Or as Clampy pointed out, pretty much exactly what they did in Russia in the first place!

I'm not certain the referee has to go a check the replay. But I think it is being strongly recommended.

" referees will now consult the monitors on a more frequent basis for subjective decisions, such as goals, red cards and penalty kicks. "

Just the 11 pens from 16 games so far, meaning its odds on for there to be a pen every game.
Handball rule looking like the main bugbear for this season, with rules now not distinguish between deliberate and accidental.

Hopefully we've been working hard in training to hit the flailing arm

Why on earth has it taken them so long to do what was pantently obvious to the rest of us - look at the bloody monitors?  So much better.

Because our referees have it in their heads that they are superior to all other refs in the world. They think they know best.That may have been the case many moons ago but not anymore which is why our refs are rarely chosen for big international matches.

Yeah, it's a lot better.

Caveat: it works well at the moment as the stadia are empty. Be interesting to see how it works when that is no longer the case.
