Blaze, to keep everything as simple and as efficient, both the Ref and VAR can work together using a set Framework.
As Nine rightly points out though, the magic word is Interpretation and how the person in control of the officiating views the incident. Take the Sissoko handball.
I though apart from maybe a minority of moments/incidents, VAR overall in the Women’s tournament was supportive.
We obviously need to allow the whole system integrate and settle into the Premier League next season, and I’m sure there’s allowance to improve and modify should there be a need to do so.10th July 2019 at 6:04 pm #43209

Mikus, that’s true about the fluidity of Rugby and Cricket. Games will be a bit longer when VAR is utilised but imo that’s a price worth paying if we get the key decisions right.10th July 2019 at 7:21 pm #43212
Hightown lol, you and me both mate if it’s not going our way – this is probably coming with a Premier League Health warning hahaha 😀 😛10th July 2019 at 7:26 pm #43213
😀 I’m getting a premonition we’ll finally win the PL by a VAR decision – put your money on it, ha! 😀10th July 2019 at 7:41 pm #43215
I wonder if all the players played the game in the correct spirit if we would have ever needed VAR in the first place… perhaps if they were all a bit more “honest” the refs wouldn’t need to check to see if anybody was “cheating”…10th July 2019 at 8:16 pm #43216
Chucks, the reality is and I’m sure you know this, there are Managers, that ‘programme’ their players to play in a certain manner that’s going to cause infringement.
It be flattering to think this as a ‘last-decade’ thing, but I sense strongly, it’s something that’s gone on over 30 years, so honesty and self ownership and responsibility maybe is asking.
I keep referring to the Women’s game, but bar Cameroon and their antics, the Ladies in general to a degree out there put the Men’s game to shame.10th July 2019 at 8:45 pm #4321710th July 2019 at 8:48 pm #43218
And with regards to the women “behaving” themselves, the reason is very obvious if you think about it.
There is nowhere near the level of “cash” in it, the players are still playing for, dare I say it, honour and glory… I’m willing to bet several pillowcases of Monster Munch if/when the cash gets the same as the men’s game they’ll be going down like Linda Lovelace…10th July 2019 at 9:01 pm #43219
Mate, that’s the ultimate recipe for disaster, once the money comes in. The state of a human mind changes as preciousness breeds in because of Stakes and because if Greed (regret in thinking cynically).
The BBC are and have been cringeworthy and desperate in their way to Market the Women’s game and raise it’s awareness, but once the big-bucks takes shape, that’s it.
Those Lefties, won’t admit it though – they’ll be looking for a Scapegoat.10th July 2019 at 9:07 pm #43222
Chucks, for the record mate, never wanted that type of outcome re the CL final. A lot of our feelings come from what happened last year and Real Madrid. That was just awful in how Salah was treated.
Always go back to what Glen Hoddle pointed, but then I hit a brick-wall in Man City and being pointed out that they shouldn’t be begrudged of all their domestic trophy triumphs, and some may argue the point in rightly so.12th July 2019 at 2:07 pm #43278
“Almost two-thirds of fans of English Football League clubs want video assistant referees (VAR) and goalline technology introduced, according to a survey of nearly 28,000 supporters.” BBC Football.12th July 2019 at 2:10 pm #43280
“I’m willing to bet several pillowcases of Monster Munch if/when the cash gets the same as the men’s game they’ll be going down like Linda Lovelace…”
Chuckster never going to happen mate not in our lifetimes anyway.12th July 2019 at 2:17 pm #43282
Wouldn’t bet against it pal, the girly tennis players get the same cash for playing less tennis, only time when there will be a law saying the women have to get paid the same as the men…12th July 2019 at 2:27 pm #43284
