    V.a.r.

    VAR is useless at the moment as it takes forever to make a decision. Offside is assessed on micrometer judgements and even then is not conclusive so would it not be better to take the cricket approach and use the referees original decision as the benchmark and let the lasers disprove it as a monumental error ? If it is close then the ref is right and that is that.
    It really is taking the enjoyment of scoring a goal to have this farce going on for two minutes or more, I would rather moan about a duff ref than someone being 2 mil offside by his left ankle.
    Goal line technology is fine but VAR needs a lot of work.
    I am glad this tech is not available in the Chumpionship.

    I'm 50-50 on it, Test.
    There's nothing more annoying than when you suffer from a poor off-side decision. On the other hand, the time involved is bizarre at times.
    Even in cricket, mistakes are still made. The equivalent of the video-ref made a terrible decision when he overruled the umpire on the Taylor LBW, the other day.

    It's just another thing for Dyche to blame on the defeat that day.

    Did they check the Spuds fifth goal on VAR ? or did they just give it as they had been working hard all afternoon.
