    Appears the prem want to relax the rules on VAR decisions..apparently if its close they dunt want VAR refs to interfere. my view is

    VAR shud be like cricket. the captain requests a decision.
    Only 2 VAR each per game.
    Offside shud be like the bowler and a full foot ova the line.
    Any manager makin VAR tv squares at the ref shud be booked

    Then agen wot di i kno....

    Erect an ideal working area for VAR officials by using the finest construction materials from SELCO Builders' Warehouse.

    SELCO - it's where the trade go.

    Man City and Brazil forward Gabriel Jesus has his own view idea regarding VAR. He was sent off in the
    3-1 Final of the Copa America Cup against Peru.

    He kicked a water bottle and gave the VAR monitor a good shove on his way off.
    I agree with the FA's decision. For me, the uncertainty are certainly talking points and can add to the
    tension of a game. In the past there have of course been some blatant errors, like Lampards
    non goal at the World Cup and cameras can and should be used to give clarity over such incidents.

    VAR has definitely got its uses, but we should hope that its not allowed to constantly interfere with the
    flow of the game, by over zealous VAR observers, because it could soon turn a lot of supporters away from the game.

    Just completely sack it off. Football is a game littered with mistakes from both players and officials and now even VAR is about interpretation from the ref. It takes too long n'all I wanna be in pub for 5 o clock complaining about refs.

    Dont like it. I hear people say that it means the 'right' decision is always made. Well actually it doesnt. Was the disallowed goal for Englands woman a handball? It was still down to the judgement of officials. VAR is only used in certain circumstances, certain parts of the pitch which them means we create double standards of officiating in the same game. Also the confusion and time delay is another issue. Analysing marginal decisions isn't the way to go for me, taking flaws out of a flawed sport. Players aren't perfect and if they were we would get less competitive entertainment. I personally agree that there needs to be a rethink in how its used or widen the tolerance to ensure the game flows and only where there is a clear intentional advantage ie 200mm not 1mm offside for example. We have seen many times this past year where VAR is concerned it has not been used for clear and obvious errors.
