The Dutch do their own thing, and it seems better to me..

Once upon a time it was just the 3 officials on the pitch that could be corrupted but now there’s more. And they can bend imaginary lines to trick us into believing they are right. It’s a disgrace

Yep, good shout this. As Iíve said before, VAR in itself is not an issue but the implementation of it. The PLís implementation is piss poor.

Absolute no brainier. Much better use of the tech.

Yep, but probably isn’t compliant with UEFA rules, but the Dutch don’t give a chuff I guess.

Yep, the interest here is in making the game fairer and better. As soon as the stupid lines come out with armpit locators the goal should instantly be given, and the way to prove it is as above.

I was thinking yesterday that if they ever get to the stage of showing these decisions on screens in stadia there will be riots over decisions like that.

And they do need to, as it keeps the process honest.

Again, works in Rugby where the process is totally transparent and the refs micíd which doesnít stop them from making tough decisions. The culture is used to it.

Seems like such an obvious an immediate improvement.
All those hairline 'offsides' would count, more consistency, easier for fans to understand the decision. Far less time fucking around with VAR and maybe even a little more confidence to be able to celebrate goals.

No brainer.

Could they also not make the lines drawn to where the foot lands not the shoulder? It’s called football, not armpit ball or Lean ball. The lines are drawn on the ground so just make them measure where the foot lands or is? All this shoulder:armpit nonsense is just... nonsense. The Jota one for me is miles onside. I’m not having the vertical line to armpit thing at all.

Yes, that too. You're unlikely to be gaining an advantage by leaning forward (head) or being sidewards on to goal (shoulder, armpit, t-shirt line, etc), at the point the ball is played.

I guess it’s conceivable that someone could be almost an entire body length in front of a defender if going for a diving header.

Doubt anyone will begrudge them that advantage if they're prepared to throw themselves for a diving header before a cross is even made.

I want to see this goal. Some sort of delayed scorpion kick?
