    Me too, it hasn’t been great. I’m fully expecting it in the championship before long.

    Very good argument put forward by Wolves and well communicated
    It been horrendously bad for everyone and theres no sign of it getting better
    Needs a total rethink but that wont happen cause the PGMOL wont admit mistakes

    I think it should be reserved for semi final and final of major cups.

    And in the league I'm not entirely sure , but optional or something.

    They’ve put it across respectfully while making some strong points

    Get rid of it. Absolutely bloody awful thing. Implemented badly, operated woefully, but is still a ridiculous solution to a problem that never existed.

    Sadly, some buggers are making good money from it so I suspect it stays.

    I’d absolutely love to see it binned off, the basic premise of it is fine but it’s been implemented completely wrong. Decisions are too inconsistent, they take too long to decide and the margins are too fine. You shouldn’t be offside by a toenail etc. It’s overused and used badly.

    The daft thing is there are ways to fix it and keep people happy, starting with limiting the usage and putting time limits on a decision.

    Shows how **** these refs are where additional technology which should make their jobs as easy as possible, has barely lasted 5 years because of them being so unsuccessful. I think the offside aspect needs to stay with it being a matter of fact but the rest might as well go. Which is **** really because now there will be incorrect penalty decisions and red card decisions which will unfairly impact games (even though VAR hasnt fully stopped this). Needs to be a massive improvement in the performance of referees, they are awful.

    It needs a reset.
    This is what happens when somebody has a good idea which is then passed to a committee of self important suits to thrash out the detail.
    “Offside by a toenail” adds nothing to the game. In fact it destroys the best part of the game. It needs to get back to clear and obvious errors only.

    It'll be interesting to see which clubs vote for and against it. Seems to be popular opinion that it favours the big clubs.

    Really hope they ditch it. It's good at least that they're considering it, shows they aren't blind to how **** it is.
