Var is a joke, Sheffield united player was judged after nearly 4 minutes to have his toe 3mm offside .
Its killing watching a game live, spoiling the experience.
VAR was introduced to clear up clear and obvious mistakes not was he on side by 1mm.
Not that many times on the bus home have I really thought we got done by a bad decision, most time it works itself out . compare that to the wIting and not celebrating each goal.

VAR, I don't think is the issue. The technology is fantastic, it's those above who cannot use it. The rules need the be changed back, obvious offsides, deliberate handballs.

The interpretation of the rules, that's the real issue.

Years ago it was clear and obvious offsides, then they brought in tougher laws to aid the linesmen/ women and referees. VAR has been introduced and what you are getting is every hairline and body part being questioned.

Offside was brought in to stop goal hanging. Go back to older rules and VAR will be used better.

But jred regardless if it was his toe he's offside that's the rules

Var is good for instances like offside but the referee should be going to a screen and making the final decision.

Totally agree with you jred, your nostril can get done for a goal, when var feels like, then a clear penalty and it doesn't get involved,
A joke that var, the day of celebrating a goal Is gone.
Sorry 70,000 people we must just check was his toenail offside.

next they will have better cameras that will see your pubic hairs and then say his shorts were definitley offside.

That decision was a shocker, there was nothing clear or obvious about it and the game is becoming a laughing stock. Why don’t they make it about the players feet? If your feet are level then you are onside and if it’s millimetres then the attacker gets the benefit of the doubt. ir change it so that there has to be daylight between the attacker and the defender (copyright ken) so if any part of you is onside then you are onside. Whatever the solution, current decisions are plain silly.

A bad workman will always blame his tools. VAR isn't a problem they use versions of it in several other sports without major issue.

The problem in football is two fold. Firstly, people aren't sure on how it's supposed to be used are those using it don't seem to know how or when they are supposed to use it. It seems like there is too much interpretation by the officials on how they can use it.

The second issue is the current laws of the game have been written for officials who don't have the advantage of VAR. The offside law has been an issue for years. The law states any part of your body you can score with is beyond the last man then you are offside. Yet they also so if your not 100% sure then you should give the benefit of the doubt to the attacking side. This is something that just doesn't happen. The number of times you see the replay of an offside decision that was given and on the replay you can see the player was offside by half an inch, which can only be seen when slowed down to half speed. Yes the official may have got it right, but there is no way they could have been 100% sure. They made an educated guess. That isn't how they are supposed to officiate.

He was offside though so correct decision at least.

How do they measure the exact moment the ball leaves a player's foot? Surely that is a matter of millimetres?
