Just switched MOTD on and I'm already fed up of fuffing VAR and I've not even finished watching the first match highlights.  It's redicilous! This may be the point now where I stop watching the premiership / MOTD full stop.
Must be horrible in the stand having to wait after the balls hit the net to celebrate or to see a goal, see the lineo has their flag down so you celebrate, your opponents take the ball to the half way line for them to decide actually it was offside.

I love VAR though and think it makes the game far fairer.Think of the decisions throughout football that were wrong ones and changed the course of things.Hence Frank Lampards goal that should of stood against Germany in the 2010 world cup or Spain's goal in the quarter final of  the 2002 world cup against South Korea which should of stood .

Sat watching mod and am hating var destroying the game, it’s getting to the point when you can’t cheer a goal until the screen tells you so

Why should they "of" stood? VAR did not exist, the officials did what they could with instant decision making. Football is a human activity not a computer game. I turned the bloody thing off last night, sick of seeing and hearing about VAR. It will kill the game as we know it.

I've just watched the West Ham vs Man City game highlights. Crazy when goals are being ruled out literally on a toe being in front of the defender. Hardly clear and obvious but Pandora's box is open now. At least think the offside rule needs reviewing. Back to daylight between defender and attacker to be offside?

Anyone who thinks VAR (not goalline technology) is a good idea in its current format might as well fook off & play tiddlywinks and let the rest of us get on with enjoying some common sense.

The offside rule is designed to stop players getting an unfair advantage - can anyone tell us what advantage players are gaining from having a part of their shoulder millimetres in front of the defender’s shoulder when moving in opposite directions?

The millions of pounds paid to pundits and not one of them has offered any insight beyond “well there’s a lot at stake nowadays”...yeah, like what? Prem teams are handed hundreds of millions of pounds a year and don’t even pay their staff a living wage, so what’s really at stake is an extra ten, fifty, hundred grand for some whopper to be sat on the bench.

The Premier League has absolutely killed football at that level with their insatiable greed, it’s disgusting. The problem is the sycophants & enablers they allow it to happen.

VAR should be used to highlight cheating and when players try and con the ref, ie diving to get penalties or off the ball incidents.


Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

I agree with Ska but we're copulated. Now it's in it won't be going anywhere.

I'm all for VAR, obviously there going to be teething problems at first. It's the actual rule for offside that is wrong, VAR just following the (terrible) letter of the law in that instance.
