    Don't ruin the narrative, everything is VARs fault, from ref fudge ups to covid and everything in between.

    It's about time we scrapped VAR, what's the point of it if it can't give United spot kicks when they want.

    Baffles me why VAR decisions cannot be time-limited. If it takes more than say a minute to decide what happened then it's patently not clear and obvious. The tortuous delays whilst the VAR takes a slide rule to calculate milimetres or replay the same incident 20 times from different angle and at different speeds is not only absurd, it's puncturing the thrill and spontaneity of the game.

    Yes of course we all want to get the big decisions right, but how can Son's toenail be said to give him a critical advantage over his opponent? It's not as thought the technology can ever be that precise about when the ball actually left the boot of the player passing the ball to him in the first place.

    Players routinely steal yards at throw-ins and free-kicks and get away with it. We lost our first game of the season 0-1 to Everton when they craftily moved the ball several yards forward for a fk that directly resulted in them scoring the winner. In that instance it was whole yards that made the difference, so why the preoccupation with milimetres when it comes to offsides?

    As The Athletic's video points out, VAR are not, there will ALWAYS be mistakes, so let's just scrap use of the slide rule, limit the VAR to 60 seconds to decide what happened then get on with the game.

    What a joke VAR has turned into. Someone needs to be sent to the stocks.

    Why is that worse than someone guessing without the benefit of slowing it down?

    They're still guessing though, just at the other side of it (when the ball is played, bit of it). In this case it looks like it's already been played when they've decided to take the judgement frame and judge everything to the millimetre. They're also having a bit of a guess about where arms start.

    When a computer can do this without the help of some halfwit referee, then fair enough let it decide in a split second like it does with GLT. It's a bit silly at the moment.

    It's still guess work, but it's going to be far, far more accurate than without the technology.

    Let's not make the perfect the enemy of the good.

    I understood the whole point of VAR was to eliminate clear and obvious errors. If the VAR can spend eons deciding whether the hairs on someone's elbow gave him such a critical advantage over the opposition why then does he not also wind back to the previous throw-in or free kick when ten yards were stolen in the first place?

    The way it is being operated, the VAR is taking all the fun and excitement out of scoring what are perfectly legitimate goals.

    It's a disgrace that one, clearly deliberate. But in fairness to VAR, this comes down to the two clams who can't do their jobs properly.

    I mean, he wasn't getting sent off without VAR either. On field clam didn't do anything.
