Are there going to be any amendments to VAR for next season, not heard anything, such as the offside and the stupid lines and refs having to go to the pitch side monitor
Also playback should be in real time. I can't remember what game it was and it took 4.5 minutes to make a decision. Bloody ridiculous .Fuck VAR.
But yeah, it should be better being used properly. The silly lines are definitely gone, but offside needs to just be watch a couple of replays and judge with the naked eye whether it is clearly off, any doubt don't give it. Hate to always bring up other sports when discussing this, but works well enough in rugby.
Jinks - You're assuming all the ref's will have the balls to admit their own mistakes. I can think of a few like Dean, Moss, Atwell that won't.

The entire VAR panels should be independent of PGMOL and FIFA trained. They should also swap leagues every year so no bias can grow and become involved.
There should be an ex ref, an ex player involved in the team too.
Neither of which would have been affected by VAR, irrespective of who is operating it. One was a failure of a different technology, the other not part of the review system anywhere in the worldThink how many ridiculous decisions would have been overturned/corrected with the simple tweak that the referee can pop over to a screen on the side of the pitch to get a second watch of an incident.
It would have made so many of the controversial decisions (like the villa keeper catching the ball and jumping in his own net or the free kick given against us v Chelsea) null and void. Simple word in the referees ear - “you might want to have another look at that” - done.
But it seems common sense has gone out of the window for those in charge of football.
Agree, if someone at work spots a mistake or oversight in someone else's work and they're better placed to correct it when time is at a premium then you let them do it. You don't get the person who came to the wrong conclusion to go and waste time having another crack at it, they can review it later and educate themselves for next time.I don’t get this concept of how a referee watching it on a shitty little screen on the side of a pitch is going to come to a better decision that a different referee watching it on multiple massive screen in a nice warm studio with a cup of coffee. No other sport thinks that.
If they are a work colleague at the same level within the organisation then undermining them alters your working relationship and makes you reticent to do it.
