Wonder if there will be as big an outcry with that lo celso decision as there was with maguire on Monday night. It didn't look too clever to me. VAR again 🤷‍♂️🤦‍♂️.

Think there will be a retroactive suspension because they admitted making a mistake.

According to the ref expert on bt sport they can't because it was only a VAR mistake and not the ref. Its just the VAR official holding his hands up but they can't retrospectively ban him. Total farce is what it's become.

Confirmed by the pgmol that no action to be taken against lo celso as the incident was seen by both the ref and VAR. bloody hell what a shambles. It seems to me that we have more controversies this season with VAR than we had last season without it. So much for it helping to clear things up 😂🤷‍♂️🤦‍♂️.

You can bet your ass there is a lot of talk about it. No clue how they got that one wrong. That's about as clear a red as you can get.

Not the only decision today either. How hard is it for the ref to look at the monitor and make a decision? Make it like rugby where the onfield ref and VAR have a chat both see the pictures and then the pitch ref makes the final decision. Is that too difficult and hard to understand?

I think what VAR is showing is the poor standard of referring in the EPL.

The system in Rugby works because the reffing teams understand that they still have to make common sense decisions. Somethings, like if the ball was over the try line, can be decided by the video in certain circumstances. But it is mostly used as a mechanism to help the refs make better decisions.

VAR, in contrast, is being used by refs as a technical decision making device - i. e. the refs are trying to use VAR to make their decisions for them. This has resulted in a ridiculously bureaucratic implementation of the rules that take no account of the actual specific context. This means that all common sense is suspended to absolve refs from any actual responsibility for the decisions.

In short, good officials can use video to help them make better decisions, bad ones use it to make the difficult decisions for them.

100% agree. Its a get out of jail free card for the refs at the minute.
