No seen it a few times, like the liveroool one last season, ready to go down.
It’s what Michael Owen started doing years back and others have followed.

Ed – I used the “fan” when referencing the spurs fan because it was a completely isolated incident. The problem with Chelsea is it’s ingrained in them. There are incidents involving them on a nearly weekly basis, not just anti Semitic but nearly always racist and not a single person on here says a word. If this happened with spurs fans every week I would accept there is a problem with racism within the spurs fan base. 999 even admitted to singing racist songs aimed at Jews and no one batted an eyelid. He also tried to defend a song referencing “tottenham are a bunch of yids” saying it rhymes with Madrid and is part of a song, not a chant. Well I suppose it can’t be racist if it rhymes in a song. Chelsea have had this reputation for decades, not just with their fans. Look at the reports that came out recently about racism in their academy and also the way they handled John Terry. They don’t care about it. Anyway I’m done. I assume you’ll all stay quiet on the subject and just ignore it.

Evening people, I haven’t posted on here for ages. If anyone remembers I am totally anti VAR.
From last night, a match I didn’t watch as I was coaching, I did however see the penalty/offside decision, offside no, but that’s the problem if the camera isn’t perpendicular to the last man, you can also get parallax error and with the low resolution it’s pointless. The penalty, unfortunately that’s the way the game has gone and would have been given for any team.
What does anoy me is the fact that the official that controls the game doesn’t make the decision and has to uphold someone else’s opinion, and that again is the other problem it’s still opinion based, whereas in Cricket with the other tools available to them it’s done on a matter of fact…..Pagan9th January 2019 at 8:25 pm #31162
V A R is in essence Video Assisted Referee. It’s very easy in a moment to get ourselves in knots, but revisit last night’s incident:
Oliver did not stop play.
Nature was allowed to take it’s course and one ‘incident’ followed another, quickly. Communication transmitted as input.
I would like to think The Ref Michael Oliver HAS the ultimate authority to make the call. That’s my perception of the whole ideology.
I truly hope VAR is NOT in place to undermine the duties of both the Ref and the Lines-people, otherwise, there’s conflict galore. If anything, there’s collaboration.
It’s there in place to support and being smart in how it extracts video footage with accuracy as one would see either from Real Time or the Camera Angles shown by Television Replays.

Mr. Balance, the ref didn’t review the incident last night, he did as he was told, If we have to have VAR, then in my opinion he has to be the one reviewing the incident, that way all incidents within the game, reviews or not, should have some level of consistency….Pagan9th January 2019 at 8:41 pm #31166

This is what I don’t understand about last night’s decision as I understood it VAR can only be used to investigate Goals, red cards, penalties and mistaken identity.
Without the use of the VAR rules have changed on that basis VAR shouldn’t have been reviewing the offside because no goal was scored and on that basis it seems to me that the Linesman’s decision should have stood as it pre dated the penalty claim.
All water under the Bridge now though.😊 But I’m still confused.9th January 2019 at 8:45 pm #31168
Opens to interpretation from observation of a fan or anyone else for that matter:
Was Oliver instructed or advised?
Honestly? I want the latter and that’s how it should be.
As far as encouraging transparency goes, definitely for the entire set up placed in the vicinity of the Referee for him to refer to – on ‘Ground Floor’ 😀 🙂 😉9th January 2019 at 8:48 pm #31170

Nine…you and I are confused about decision makeing. I think the FA or whoever it is needs to put out a clear statement for fans on how this works and who makes the decisions. I can see a big problem ariseing if it is not sorted, fans need to understand what they are watching and maybe a brief explanation over the speakers9th January 2019 at 10:14 pm #3118110th January 2019 at 8:56 am #31183
What a liar Paxton is or was. Never let anyone else’s success blind you. It puts you in real bad light.
