“the Ladies in general to a degree out there put the Men’s game to shame.”
What about the disgraceful over-celebrating from the US women’s team against Thailand? I can’t remember ever seeing a mens team do that nonsense.14th July 2019 at 5:17 pm #43384
“Nine out of ten full reviews by the video assistant referee (VAR) at the Women’s World Cup prompted the on-field match official to reverse initial decisions, according to a Fifa review which lays bare how the technology is increasing its influence on the game.” Sunday Telegraph.4th August 2019 at 7:30 am #44341
VAR if implemented correctly will benefit City. We were on the receiving end of many wrong decisions last season including some major ones.4th August 2019 at 7:42 am #44342
Given City’s offensive attributes and how they tend to dominate games I think that’s probably right Jim.4th August 2019 at 7:47 am #44344
Has to be implemented correctly, not half arsed and selective like it has been so far.4th August 2019 at 7:55 am #44346
Still don’t like it, half-arsed or not.4th August 2019 at 8:06 am #44350
You liked it at the Etihad no doubt lol It got you thru.4th August 2019 at 8:32 am #44351
Yes, Large James, there will be times when my boys benefit from it, there will be times when they don’t, there will also be times when your boys benefit from it, and times when your boys won’t. Overall, I still despise the system and do not think it’s good for the game, certainly not for the fans watching.4th August 2019 at 8:45 am #44352
I think it needs to be implemented properly. Show the decision on the screens. What are they scared of, makes you wonder some times. To have it and then still make obvious wrong decisions is a complete farce.4th August 2019 at 10:27 am #44357

Haha, I thought Liverpool really benefited from no VAR last season. Kept you lads in the title race! That and all the last minute keeper errors.4th August 2019 at 11:05 am #44365
Nine out of ten full reviews by the video assistant referee (VAR) at the Women’s World Cup prompted the on-field match official to reverse initial decisions, according to a Fifa review which lays bare how the technology is increasing its influence on the game.
Overall the statistics show referees in France relied on video review significantly more than officials at the 2018 launch of VAR at the men’s World Cup in Russia. Fifa said 535 incidents were checked at a rate of 10.28 for each of 52 games played this summer. The equivalent numbers were 455 at a rate of 7.1 for each of 64 games in Russia last year.
Of the 33 full reviews in France, 29 led to a U-turn by the referee. The 33 decisions reviewed at the women’s tournament compared to 20 in 12 more men’s games the previous year, and the rate was one intervention every 1.6 women’s games compared to once every 3.2 men’s games.
The full reviews this summer caused an average delay of a minute and 33 seconds. The decisions led to 13 penalties, four penalty cancellations, four goals disallowed, four goals awarded, three encroachments by goalkeepers during penalties and one red card. Crowds and players in France had expressed frustration at repeated delays when referees have jogged across to the monitors to double-check decisions. During England’s incident-filled 3-0 second-round victory against Cameroon there was more than 16 minutes stoppage time. There was also criticism that the tournament was used as a “guinea pig” for new rules on penalties.
The Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL), the body responsible for match officials in English professional football, has since issued instructions to ensure a “high bar” will be set for referees deciding whether to use the pitch-side review area. Fifa, however, said it had “reflected with satisfaction” on their performance in France. Pierluigi Collina, chairman of the referees committee, said: “The performances seen on the pitch were absolutely in line with our expectations.”
The BBC showed this summer’s Women’s World Cup, with a record-breaking 28.1 million people watching the tournament on television. Yesterday the corporation confirmed it had secured exclusive rights to the 2021 Women’s European Championship in England. Daily Telegraph.
Love it or loathe the above suggests VAR is getting more decisions right than wrong which overall can only be good for the game. Time remains a bit of an issue bit overall I think it’s a case of us just getting used to it.

Might have won the league Jim
If we had got one or two decisions but ah that’s old news mate
City fully deserved the title. That team is relentless. Never seen a team win the ball back so quickly. Excellent then with the ball. Outstanding side and it was one hell of a run in.
Just said at the time, once we lost the leaf, city would never let it slip.
Great season Mate
Don’t think we will get as close this season4th August 2019 at 11:13 am #44371
It’s still a wank stain in the game…4th August 2019 at 11:40 pm #44434
Now, being more favourable towards Technology, I didn’t think I’d say this, but I’m actually glad there was no VAR today.
I know Atkinson is not a lot of people’s cup of tea, but for me, both Him and Sian Massey did pretty good.
We are going to be reliant on machines as well as humans in judgement. Whenever I see anything related to goal-line tech, it now reminds me of Tennis when calls are made to ‘microscopically’ check whether the ball is out or in.
There was disgruntled faces and signs of frustration and aggression coming out from the recent Wimbledon final between Federer and Djokovic.
Imagine the team being on the receiving end of a goal disallowed because of a few millimetres? It may well happen!
