VAR madness

Madness at Mainz

Unbelievable scenes in the Bundesliga game between Mainz and Freiburg this evening. Mainz are awarded a penalty courtesy of a VAR decision on handball. Only problem was that the half-time whistle had already gone and most of the players were back in the changing room. They are called back out on to the pitch and Pablo de Blasis, after waiting for the Freiburg keeper to arrive, scored from the spot.

With fans having already disappeared for a pee ‘n’ a pint. I wonder how many football supporters throughout the countries it’s being used are actually in favour of this sack of shite.

Good of him to wait for the keeper to arrive though

Before experiencing it I’m sure many of us thought it was progressive, but reality is very different

Destroys one of the core attractions of football, spontaneity...And that in turn takes reduces the emotional attachment to what we’re there to watch

I’ve never been so opposed to any single development in football ... would ruin the game

It’s the way they apply it currently that makes it so bad. Allow the captains one appeal per half. If it’s successful they get to use it again. If not they lose it. That wouldn’t be as obtrusive as what we have now. Still not a perfect system obviously but as otters have said, a little bit of controversy in a game of football keeps things interesting.

+1 

will catch the big issues (like the Jordao / Lampard goals) and would not play into the hands of skewing things even more in favour of the big clubs (a la Liverpool)

Don't agree as the decision shouldn't be with the captain, it should be with the referee to make the right decision or, if we do have to have this bollocks, for him to refer something he's not sure about. What should happen is only a captain should be able to question a refereeing decision, politely, and anyone else gets an instant penalty (well, 10 yards move/yellow).
