Use goalline technology but sod all this VAR nonsense.

Even if we do end up with the correct decision to the letter of the law it's taking a hell of a lot of enjoyment away from the game for me.

It is bloody ridiculous - some games you might find that the stoppages are more than the playing time. If it ever gets to our level and we are all cheering a winning goal in a Wembley play off final only for it to be snatched away because of an offside toe.

Top strikers who play on the shoulder of the last man are going to be hesitant now aren't they - previously they might get away with being 3 inches offside.

As you say, confine it to goal line technology and let the game and all its human mistakes (players and refs) flow.

The problem with VAR is that it will only chalk off goals and not create them, hence there will be fewer goals per game in the future, but goals are what the game is about, would you rather whatch a 0-0 or a 4-4 draw.

Totally agree.

Although on this occasion the decisions benefited England, that game was totally ruined by VAR.

Haven’t seen many games and missed this one, but what I have seen have been played in a good spirit. And US-Sweden and Oz-Norway were both played at a high tempo putting many men’s games to shame.

Well it created England's second goal.

Heard the same sort of stuff in the pub watching the game, sexual innuendos all the time.

I'm no prude but I think the women's game deserves a bit more respect, I wish I could have played that well when I played.

Technology is here to stay and yes games will be longer because of it. The decisions will always be argued if it doesn't go your way ,but will you moan about VAR  if the opposite happens. The real problem is the refs. Cameroon should have had 10 yellow cards and at least one sending off. They brought the game into disrepute and the ref let them them do it.

It's been a good tournament and some great football technically. Cameroon played like an under 10's team under the watchful eyes of overbearing parents though, and took the game back some distance. Ref was weak and not good enough for that level, but well done to England for thorough professionalism throughout.
