The anti villa camp in the ref association has hit a new low. For Mike Riley to come out and say there have only been 4 mistakes with VAR and obvious errors and Jack's 'dive' to not be one of them is nothing short of scandalous.

Echoed mate.

{Ed001's Note - the whole thing was a joke. There were loads of obvious ones they missed. PGMOL protecting its members rather than doing its job.}

Hi Guys, the way i understand it is that VAR could not get involved in this decision as the referee had stopped play.

If he hadnt, the goal would have stood after VAR review.

I think what this shows is that play needs to be continued beyond a possible VAR intervention rather than the referee just stopping the game. However, how can this by appropriately implemented?


{Ed001's Note - they could get involved with the decision as it should have been a free kick on the edge of the box to Villa. They are making up nonsense as they go to protect the incompetence of their officials. The goal would not have stood, but you should have had a free kick or possibly a penalty, depending on where it was decided the offence took place.}

Simply put, they are in a position to say 'you got it wrong' and should do. Yes, the ref was a Wally and shouldn't have whistled when he did but the VAR could at least confirm which way the infringement actually occurred ie foul or dive.
I get that they don't want to negate the position of the ref by overruling everything but if you're going to implement it, use it properly.
Get the senior refs in there who don't have the legs anymore and have them properly advise on what the call should be. 2 birds with one stone, VAR does its job and younger refs get effective on the job training.

{Ed001's Note - I have also been saying that they should get older refs in there. But one thing that made me laugh is they have Lee Probert unavailable to referee due to a bad back and they also say he is not fit enough to be in the VAR studio! Surely he could still do that?}

I'd put Dermot in there, his Ref Watch feature on Sky Sports is a good read. His analysis shows that while he's sympathetic to what the ref can see in real time he will still call them out on it.

{Ed001's Note - any of the retired ones. They might have missed things on the pitch, but that is in real time, with a video to watch they should be able to spot things.}

Personally I feel disappointed by this news. We currently have one unproven striker, one who has never been proven in the PL and another who isn't ready to start in the championship. As well as this, we now only have 3 wingers, all 3 of which could get injured and be left with no substitute to replace the remaining 2. As much as I respect the vision of the club; to not sign another winger after letting Green go out on loan is baffling to me.

08 Aug 2019 14:12:59
We have a huge squad and before people say it we have 3 strikers 4 1 place so we are fine. This team we have has enough to stay up that's all I want this year then we build!

08 Aug 2019 14:37:29
Probably needed another striker/ winger after letting green go, but other than that excellent business on paper.

Kingy it's got to be 4 out of 4 to get us to even think you might be in the know.

07 Aug 2019 21:24:41
Blimey kingy I think every media source in the land is talking about us getting Benrahma, do you really think we believe you are in the know when you state common knowledge.
When you say bb I take it you mean Bjarnason, where is he supposed to be going to.
