    Even though it went for us yesterday,I hate it.. You will find out next season when you can't celebrate a goal until they have checked it with VAR. The game has been ruined by it ..

    I'd agree but is this how it is wherever VAR is used (thinking of the European leagues)?

    VAR is the biggest load of b o l l o k s ever to come into football by the so called bigwigs,

    It has spoilt our beautiful game, i do not know one person who i speak to about it that thinks it is any good,

    Some will argue that it needs tweaking here and there until they get it right,

    But for me it can f u k right off,

    Do i want to get to the Prem, too right i do, Do i want VAR, no thanks, but looks like its here to stay unfortunately.

    Agree 100% Alf
    Went to St Marys to see Southampton v Spurs, Game ruined as you say - the automatic reaction when a goal goes in has now become diluted/muted imediately after as you wait for VAR to dissallow a perfectly good goal.. takes away spontenaety.

    I think it has completely ruined the game. Ought to use it like at tennis - two challenges per game or something similar IMO

    I agree with the exception of a goal line cam. pretty simple to do with modern technology. ball crosses the line it's a goal. otherwise play goes on. This does not come up very often in games and it's one area when even the best linesmen/ref can't be on top of the play to spot it. You can also do this real quickly without ruining the flow of the game.

    Championship has the goal line stuff, just not the constant second guessing on every decision in open play that VAR seems to be used for. I thought it was there for decisions the match officials had difficulty with, not to review everything (like what happened to Bournemouth against Bumley, disgraceful treatment and I can only imagine what Eddie Howe would LIKED to have said in the post match interview, he was very restrained!)
