VAR for 2020/21

Post by faaip »

So listening to Talksport earlier and it's been announced apparently that all pens will be looked at to check for encroachment from defenders and attackers and also if the goalkeeper moves off his line before the ball is kicked if the kick is saved or missed

If so there will be a re-kick. I think that's about 100% of pens this season that were illegal

Also linesman are being advised to keep their flag down for tight offsides. The VAR will make those distinctions after a goal had been scored. I guess this is so teams don't stop defending if they see a flag go up, there was a case of a goal being ruled legal after the linesman put his flag up and the defenders stopped last season. Forget who

2 hour plus football games anybody?

I wanted to flash this watch, I flash it all the time. It's my antique pocket watch and it makes me look British...and I need that for my analysis. It is a gorgeous gold pocket watch however and I'm very proud of it. You see my grandfather, on his death bed, ..sold me this watch!

It should also be a slight disadvantage to those teams new to VAR, so the promoted teams.

Always makes me laugh when they spend ages looking at VAR, give the decision and then people back in the studios are still divided on the incident.

Only if it's used well which currently it isn't.

so how would you use it?

in a tight offside, linesmen are encouraged not to flag, if a goal is scored vat will check it.....suppose strikers boot is 2 inches offside, do u say, oh award a goal he is pretty much level......so what about 3 inch...or 4 inch....where do u draw the line? if its offside, its offside.

the controversy occurs when its really referees interpretation, such as hand to ball or ball to hand.....offside player interfering with play or not?

another problem is when var looks at incidents missed by the onfield officials......such as the mitrovic incident last month....play continued....if after 3 minutes of nonstop play fulham scored.....would var had disallowed the goal? How would we have felt if fulham had scored and the goal was awarded cos the mitrovic incident had been missed?

Is disallowing such a goal a fault with var insofar as play can be pulled back several minutes....should the goal stand? then what? does var award a free kick and send mitrovic off.....then how can the goal stand....should mitrovic get away with it if the ball stays in play for x minutes?

I would have thought that the Leeds captain could ask the referee to stop the game to check var at the time of the incident.
