    • I totally agree Billy. It has already to an extent spoiled the best thing about football - the passion of celebrating a goal. Now any goal could be wiped for something you had no chance of seeing from the stands or even on TV. It will be in the back of fans mind every time a goal is scored now. People say 'who cares if it's the right decision'... well I do. The above is more important to me. I don't care if a few marginal decisions get called wrong. If it takes 3-5 minutes of 3 refs looking at multiple angles and replays then it was hardly a 'clear and obvious' error - I would argue if it can't be easily dealt with in a few seconds then you may as well just have gone with the refs gut call anyway. Goal line tech is great - takes 1 second and is binary. Right or wrong. Next season will be a nightmare. All that will be talked about is VAR. Penalties every game for contact in the box and goals ruled out for minor rubbish that nobody would ever have even noticed. It will be talked about more than bad reffing ever was... yet another reason I'm actually glad to be watching Championship football next year. 
    • Preston in the league and Lincoln in the cup is my guess  
    • 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. 
    • Just read the 15 Of Boro's Most Memorable Opening Day Games on the club site and I’ve got to say the 3-3 draw with Liverpool was my favourite.
