VAR

As we're unlikely to see terraces again at football, this is the virtual equivalent where you can chat to your hearts content about all football matters and, obviously, Arsenal in particular. This forum encourages all Gooners to visit and contribute so please keep it respectful, clean and topical.

Surprised not to have seen a more recent update to this thread from all those outraged by the technology

2 points gained against West Ham, 1 at Old Trafford for a matter of seconds

Can we go back to blowing up a pigs bladder and having a tape instead of the crossbar though.....much more fun
:D

For a change the technology benefited us but the negative side of VAR was still there to see as the long, silent wait in the ground was ridiculous. Especially when it turned out that it was a really straightforward decision that only needed 1 replay. I just cannot understand why it took 3-4 minutes to reach a verdict.
Exactly. ^^^^ 8)

Ffs VAR finally got one right and it was so obviously onside it didn't fucking even need VAR - and still the shit system took 5 fucking minutes to make the decision. Absolute nonsense of a system killing the game for everybody except towel flicker fans who are used to watching players stand around for up to 5 minutes at a time. What next? Should we introduce compulsory arse fingering so we can be even more like the tedious shit that is rugby? :roll:

Fuck VAR. :censored:
hahaha :lol:

Now that handshakes have been banned it might be the right time to introduce that 8)
I’d give it the thumbs up :wink:

You not going to be buying the VAR dvd of the season then ?

Relive the classic fuck ups in glorious widescreen, pause at the precious moment and get your own ruler and tape measure out and pretend you have supreme executive power.

Change "TV screen" to "PC monitor" and I've managed that all by myself with no need for a referee kit! :D 8)
