To separate from the main Premiership discussion, following probably the worst implementation of VAR to date on the weekend, surely it is not fit for purpose?
VAR as a principle is fine for me, but the problem isn’t the systems nor the rules… It is still at the mercy of human intervention and sadly the standard of officiating in this country is just horrific. I don’t trust the bias of certain refs and the complete lack of transparancy just gives them freedom to do whatever they want, there is no comeback for utter failings time and time again.
We must be at a point where VAR has to conducted by a completly separate body from the FA, most importantly an independant body. They would at least have the balls to tell the on the field ref that they made a mistake (which by the way is fucking ok, thats the fucking point of using technology to assist the ref, not to undermine).
