    The France game? I thought it was 6 -7 minutes?
    And that was because there were 2 VAR reviews - one that led to the pen being awarded (correctly so imo) and the second review that led to the missed pen being retaken (very, very harsh I thought).
    On the retake - it was due to the Nigerian keeper having moved off her line. Which she did but pretty insubstantially. There will be fun and games next season if VAR imposes retakes for situations like that.

    Ahhh ok, I read 10 minutes but happy to take the 6-7 minutes.

    Out of interest do the 6-7 minutes get added on for playing time or is the clock stopped?

    Certainly looked like it was to help favourites France to through against Nigeria. The French players encroached on the retake and they let it stand.

    VAR will become a tool that ensures even more decisions work out nicely for the top teams.

    Good question. From recollection I think there was added time of 5, maybe 6 minutes. Tbh I wasn’t paying too much attention by that time, it was just on in the background. I can’t recall whether the clock actually got stopped. Trying to think back to our City games, I don’t think it did.

    The American one against Chile was even worse, clearly outside the box.

    I have said this from the off when people mentioned the Medes as a reason, both choice of what to review and the editing of the pictures will lead to people thinking its more corrupt not less (this is already happening in Italy / Spain & Germany ) whether it is or not.

    This thread could be fun for next season. It certainly has the potential to be a long thread if this is how VAR will be enforced.

    I think it was 8 minutes of added time on the board and they played 9 or 10.

    Two terrible instances of VAR. If VAR is meant to only correct clear and obvious errors, then it wasn't a penalty. The VAR official reviewed the incident and then called the referee over to have a look. In slow motion it was a foul, but such fouls often don't get called even when the referee sees it.

    Then the retake. The goalies foot was marginally off the line but she didn't make a save. Wendie Kompany was very lucky to get a second chance for such a lazy penalty. Her own goal showed more conviction.

    Fair point about the first review. I only saw the slow motion replays, and that can definitely distort perceptions.

    It does seem that more VAR reviews are being passed back to the ref to look at again than I recall being the case in the CL or in our FAC trials - or maybe I am imagining that?

    maybe we could bring VAR to the thread itself,just for fun, should someone use an incident as an example of resounding success or incompetent failure of the VAR system and then be proven to be wrong they get a avatar change to a dumbass pundit, savage, Murphy or the like

    My favourite thing about VAR is how much it upsets all the dinosaurs.

    I look forward to a world of football dominated by stats and VAR where Redknapp and Sherwood are locked away in a small room, banging their faces off of a wall in angry confusion.

    I still remember this penalty incident from the 98 world cup.

    The thing is there is no rhyme or reason to the way that it is applied. In one game a handball is called, in the next it's not looked at. If a penalty is being retaken for encroachment then that should apply to the attackers as well as the keeper, plus a large amount of these calls are not errors in the way that was stipulated when VAR was bought in. The way that it has been implemented will just lead to bigger teams getting more calls in their favour than before, instead of evening things up.

    That's as maybe, but remember also that bigger teams (us included!) usually spend that much more time in the opponents box, which usually means weaker teams resorting to desperate tactics more often.

    Explain the penalty retake in the Scotland vs Argentina game. What an absolute disgrace this is:

    IMG_20190620_091733.jpg

    VAR has been used to decide the keeper's off her line after making a save! If that's how the game is going to be officiated moving forward I may well find something else to do with my time.

    It's easy to blame the rules being set, but VAR allows the powers at be the enforce them when it suits.

    I'm younger than you by the way.
