I don't know if anyone else is watching Roma vs Milan (I doubt it) but the standard of officiating is ridiculously poor. Referee giving penalties, throwing yellow cards around etc. What is the point of having VAR if someone doesn't whisper 'you're being a twat and got every decision in the second half wrong' in his ear?

I really fear for the future of football if the last month or so around the world is anything to go by.

I agree about using the Rugby model. We definitely need to hear the discussion and rational, and let the on-pitch referee make the decision.

I'd also advocate using referees that have reached retirement age as the VAR ref. They've built up experience and don't need to worry about the physical aspect of refereeing a game.

VAR shambles in the Chelsea game.

Chavs get a penalty for ricocheted handball and Rennes player gets a second Yellow and red for the handball.

Fuck VAR

By CL rules, it was a handball, as the player had made himself unnaturally bigger...what I did disagree with was the red, as that was given for stopping a goal scoring opportunity. After the ricochet, the ball was going nowhere near the goal.

Not exactly a VAR issue, but one of the things that has annoyed me recently is players getting penalties when they are going nowhere. In its simplest terms, a penalty should be awarded as compensation if a player is illegally denied a goal scoring chance. I'm thinking of the Kane and Fabinho incidents recently, despite the fact that they weren't even fouls, both attackers were going nowhere, so why should they be rewarded with an almost guaranteed goal? Even to a lesser extent, the Salah pen as he looked to be going nowhere, although arguably one turn and he was in Salah range. There are many more examples, these are just the more recent and I think something needs to change.

The double jeopardy rule was introduced a few years ago as a red card and pen seemed too severe a punishment and I think the same should apply here.

Neil Atkinson made a fair point on LFC TV's press box that perhaps the boxes should be made smaller. I think this would be an excellent idea. They should definitely be more narrow, as how is a player who is fouled at the left or right hand side of the box denied a goal scoring opportunity? Likewise, it's a harsh punishment for a defender blocking a cross who accidentally handballs it in an innocuous area.

IF VAR are going to check everything and we are going to keep hearing "by the letter of the law...", then something needs to be done to downgrade some pens to free kicks. If the boxes aren't going to change size, maybe referees could decide if a foul denies a goal scoring chance then pen, if the player is going away from goal or the ball going out of play then indirect free kick. Could even make the handball rule a bit easier, deliberate hand ball or denies a goal bound shot then pen, if it's totally accidental (like old rules) or takes a deflected then indirect freekick.

Obviously I've massively simplified here, but f something like this was introduced and there were less match defining calls being decided by VAR, then there would be less publicity around it and hopefully start giving the officials the opportunity to improve their use of it.

Ludicrous, but it’s as much the new handball rule as VAR that’s the problem there. Same as our disallowed winner against Everton.

I'm not sure I agree. The law is the law, and referees have to implement it.

That said, the law is an ass.

Itís not a subjective rule though. Offside is a black and white decision with VAR. Youíre either off or on. Oliver was correct in process, itís just that the process is bullshit.

Its not black and white though. It has been discussed to death that the frame rate of the cameras are insufficient to process such precise margins.

And the decisions should only be overturned if it is clear and obvious and from that image it isn't clearly offside

The may well be the case about the frame rates, but thatís not taken into account. The bottom line with VAR is it literally draws a line between on or off. Common sense on how theyíre not actually gaining any advantage by having their shoulder or T-shirt line 2mm ahead of the defender doesnít come in to it.

I thought it was a definite pen.

The VAR rules regarding top of sleeve have to change. It was fine last season when it was start of shoulder. They got it wrong with the handball rule start of season and they need to come out and say they have got this wrong. That Bamford goal is 100% onside in the game we have grown up with and loved.

The manager and players should refuse to play until that shit is sorted out.

We should have made a bigger stand with the Henderson goal at Everton.

All teams should call the officials out for what they are. Fucking idiots. Or at least direct the anger at the referees chief.

It is a bit of a joke now alright....

and i think you might be right about what needs to happen. I don't think that they won't play, but definitely needs the LMA and the PFA to kick off about this.

VAR is a fucking joke. Yes, it's supposedly 'black and white' for offside but there are still pixels of greyness depending on who stopped the play, who drew a fucking straight line or an angled one, where a shirt sleeve starts and what colour boot the attacker is wearing. Any if it's viewed in real-time, half-speed or slow-mo - all will give you a different result. Then, to add insult to injury, the complete fuckwits in the VAR office ignore stuff the ref didn't see... but overrule stuff he does see and has a different take on it... even when it's micro-marginal degrees of difference. It's an absolute farce and should be canned. If it can't be 100% fully automated, it's still interpretation and so exactly as it was pre-VAR but with a few extra angles. Utter shite.

VAR has been an absolute disaster. The only thing it has highlighted which we already knew, is just how poor the standard of officiating in the premier league is. Ref's dropping a massive bollock in nearly every game and too arrogant to correct themselves.

100% agree on the ref's attitude to correcting their errors. They can't admit their mistakes, which is screwing up the process.

They can though can't they? Every single time they go to the pitch-side monitor (bar once, I think), they overturn their original decision.

Not saying it's good, cos the whole thing is a clusterfuck. But it seems once it's gone to VAR, and especially the monitor, we all know the on-field decision is getting overturned. It's like the whole charade is cosmetic, performative.

True, but for a VAR decision, take it from either the head or the foot, which ever is furthest forwards UNLESS the goal is scored with a part of the body not within this region and that part of the body is visibly further forwards. In these circumstances, use that part of the body as reference.

yeah ok i sort of agree, i think the frustration is the crass offside & handball rulings; i have yet to see a ref go over & look at an overturned offside decision. i think they should & then be allowed to use common sense (Hendo goal, Bamford goal, etc)

I'm not a defender of VAR but to be fair it is the changes to the rules that are the problem, mostly the changes to the handball rule, it has now become a nonsense. It results in stupid penalties like the one we saw against Gomez at the weekend. Under the current rules that is a 'clear pen' but last year or any other previous year it's clearly not a pen. VAR just enables the referees to see it and highlights the stupidity of the rule. This change to the handball rule is also what has resulted in these stupid offside calls like the Bamford one and probably the Mane one in the derby (although I still can't see that one).

The tight offsides one is a VAR issue though for me this comes from the officials and those involved in the VAR system not knowing (or not acknowledging) it's limitations. I have suggested a better way to use the existing technology for offsides to make it a little fairer and give the benefit of the doubt to the attacker but they wouldn't go for it.
