Re: World Cup 2018

Interesting* point on VAR made on the 5 live commentary just now. Everytime the ref is called over to the TV to check for a pen, he has given it. Would take a brave ref to view the footage and disagree I guess. May well save time just to give the pen when VAR give the nod. Fair point to make I gues...

Yeah VAR seemed to work ok for the Iran goal

Though I have no idea what the point of a linesman is nowadays. Don't even bother flagging champ, VAR will decide....

odd law that I have never heard of, and still part of me doubts. But looks amusing as they do it anyway https://twitter.com/BantsFootballFC/status/1008647459445313536?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw&ref_url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.bigsoccer.com%2Fthreads%2Fhacking-vodka-and-dashboard-cams-fifa-world-cup-russia-20...

Re: England’s World Cup Finals 2018

I do wonder if there will be more players going down under any contact as they value their chances on a referral. i.e. any contact will look worse in slow mo. But that shouldn't mean its a foul imo

Re: England’s World Cup Finals 2018

Still not convinced by VAR or that it will ever "be used properly" So far we've 'gained' 2-3 pens that were slight enough that had they not been given the teams would have been miffed but not outraged (i.e. they weren't outrageous howlers from the ref not to give them) .....and we've had ...

Why no VAR?
VAR and ref obviously don't think it was had enough to be a proper foul

Re: World Cup 2018

* weirdly for the France VAR decision, they also kept showing the side view, which was also the worst angle to see if the defender got the ball or not. Yeah i noticed that, the angles they were showing you in the VAR were the worst ones for judging the incident The Peru player absolutely played for...

Re: VAR

The Argie one went out for a goal kick so once he allowed play to restart the ref couldn’t go back whereas the Peru one the ball didn’t go dead, who knows how long they have to look at it mind you? Certainly none of the commentators Yeah guessed that was the case, but as you say, how long does it g...

Re: VAR

'zactly, until someone whispered in his ear

They were adamant that the ref in the argie game couldn't go to VAR as he'd allowed play to continue.........is it because in the peru game play didn't actually stop and then the ref looked at it once there was a break? I assume so
