    I still think there is a use for VAR for some things. The offside has to be obvious it’s offside. If they have to zoom in and out for ages then it’s onside.

    That should fix it.

    There’s zero place for VAR

    A video replay showing what happened can only be a good thing, the people looking at it don't know what they are doing and/or are corrupt, that's where the problem is.

    Put £30 on MU to win. Odds were far to tempting especially when we will have Emil Krafth playing.

    It’s not a good thing. Technology has ruined football

    Plenty will cry when an offside goal ruins their weekend though... let's not forget the no contact dives for pens and red cards too.

    It just needs to be a quick check for offsides and pens.... not this ott looking at everything.

    Exactly. The technology itself is fine; it’s the idiots behind it that are the issue.

    Odds were 9/5 shot £32 quid on and get £91.53 back.

    That's the key point. It's meant to be for 'clear and obvious' decisions the ref has missed or got wrong. It you need 5 minutes to check 6 different angles in slow motion and draw lines, then it's not clear and obvious. They have let it dictate rather than enhance.

    Not for me, semi auto offsides next season will be great.

    I hate technology in football. It’s completely ruined the game. (Game not business)
