Transfer window has just gone dead since the World Cup (as expected). The three weeks after the cup and before the start of the season/window closure are going to be mental

Re: England’s World Cup Finals 2018

Yeah, that's my point. VAR is meant to stop the officials from missing stuff so teams aren't hard done by, it's still happening except now we've got annoying breaks in play to go with it.

Re: England’s World Cup Finals 2018

The problem with VAR at this World Cup has been it not being used when it should have been, not in the use of it when it has. Which leads me to believe the refs haven't been trained properly. If you're going to bring the technology in for a World Cup then everyone needs to know what they are doing....

Re: England’s World Cup Finals 2018

There have been incidents reviewed and corrected with VAR that otherwise would not have been. Why is that not good? It's also missed things. It's the most prestigious competition in the world, it shouldn't be being trialled. But those things would have been missed without VAR too. Not particularly,...
