    Video Ref

    Suppose this deserves a thread of its own as its quite prominent now

    Plenty of errors been seen so far. The Chile boys elbow only being a booking in the confed cup, the wrong cameroon player being sent off in the confed too, Chiles perfectly good goal being chopped,guess what, confed cup too. Englands pen and France losing a man in the process, Atalanta game this season where the ref stopped for 4 mins in the second half where there were 6 subs made but still only 3 added on, just off the top of my head. There have been alot more

    Tonight another bizarre one

    Lazio v Torino. Ciro Immobile tries to cross the ball into the box hitting Torinos Burdisso on the hand. Its as stonewall as you like. Clear view of ref and the c@nt behind the goal. Budisso and Immobile clash with immobile kind of shoulder/cheek butting him. The video ref pings and Immobille is sent off. Surely to f@ck the video ref should have pinged for the initial blatant as f@ck penalty. You wont see a clearer pen. So Lazio went down to 10 and got pumped 3-1 when they could have went up 1-0 if they scored the pen changing the game(Torino very good for their money to be fair) .Puzzling

    Video ref controversy again. Again in the Olimpico in Rome

    Roma v Cagliari

    93 min at 0-0 Kholarov swings in a free kick and the keeper punches it of a Roma boy (who was onside) but the ball landed at Fazio who knocked it in. Fazio was infront of the Roma boy who intially touched it and there was no defender between him and keeper. The goal was given although it was clearly offside. Then it went to VAR and it was still given.

    Roma won 1-0

    I've looked at it a few times. I could be wrong but it looked to me that the keeper hit it against the same lad that scored.

    The fact you can still debate the incident, shows how pointless the whole thing is.

    Interesting to hear after the World Club Final yesterday Real Madrid have said its sh@te and they don't want it in Spain(where it is coming in next season). They had a controversial decision against them too

    Dont think it's TOTALLY pointless but it's certainly not foolproof. I was at a couple of game in Lisbon last week. In one the visiting team claimed for a penalty. Eventually, after the ball had gone out, the ref reviewed it. He turned down the appeal. Checked out the highlights on YouTube and .... it certainly looked like a penalty to me. In the other game, the ref used the video to check on a goal that Estoril scored against Benfica. After viewing it he gave handball against the attacker and booked the player. Again, the highlights I saw on Youtube were inconclusive. Both decisions went for the home team.

    Think it's worth a try though. Like Considine's goal yesterday would have stood, both teams might have had a penalty.

    Aye but would it. It was Bobby Madden

    Who decides if it goes to the VAR? The ref? Or is it the VAR who calls him in his earpiece? If it's the ref then it's a waste of time here.

    The ref and the video ref watchers are the only people wirh the power to decide The ref doesnt have to view it and can take the word of the the two VAR dudes.

    At the Benfica match on saturday night, the ref seemed to ask the guys on the touchline - I dont think he left the pitch to view it. The goal was chopped off for handball. (having looked at it again and bearing in mind my thoughts on the op, it was a tough decision). At Belenenses on the sunday, the ref came over and viewed the monitor off-pitch and he made the decision. This seems inconsistent but there are a few variables.

    Ithink the problem with the ref being involved in the VAR decisions is that they'll be biased towards their own original decision. Should be the guys on the side and no one else.

    Agree 100%

    You - after watching the Pacos penalty appeal against Belenenses - it looked like a pen to me but the ref (who made the original decision) disagreed.

    Serie A again tonight. Genoa took a 2-1 lead v Lazio. In the lead up to the goal the Lazio defender tries an acrobatic clearance when the Genoa goalscorer is not even a quarter of a yard behind him. The ball hits his hand and hes in and scores. His hand isn't away from his body its not directed towards the ball and and hes a ball hair away from the defender when it happened.

    VAR and goal disallowed. Incredibly incredibly f@cking harsh. I would say its a mistake by the ref. Again

    I wonder what VAR would have made of John Beaton's ludicrous decision to kill today's game by awarding a penalty to Celtic at 1-0 for a challenge that was clearly outside the box even when viewed in real time.
