VAR in its present form will absolutely ruin football. The game as we know it will change beyond recognition. It will become a non contact sport because every coming together will be analysed.
Next season, Match of the day pundits will spend more time discussing VAR decisions than the actual games themselves.
The over scrutinising of match incidents by TV pundits has lead to the introduction of VAR, to a certain extent, yet it will be TV that suffers when views grow bored of 100 minute plus games, goals that have been celebrated, then annulled due to a toe being slightly ahead of a heel, linesmen refusing to call offside and constantly retaken penalties.
Im not sure how long it will last, but I hope it isn’t here to stay, for the good of the game.
Sorry Dan, did not see your post. Was not being rude.
Oh that is good news that they are under an embargo because from what I read their manager looks decent but if their hands are tied somewhat that will hopefully reduce his effectiveness.
