Not unless it's Utd, Liverpool or City it won't.

Maybe not as clear and obvious as this armpit that was given 50mm offside 😂

The Rugby authorities have said refereeing has been poor so far in the World Cup

6 weeks and no peep from anybody in the Premier League

From their perspective it's working perfectly.

So there's this 3, and the Grealish "dive" / equaliser makes 4 goals that have gone against us in about 3 weeks. VAR was supposed to stop this happening?

Like general refereeing, the smaller clubs will get the brunt of the poor decisions and little fuss will be made.

For offside they need to go back to the clear air rule for me. 

Offside is to stop attackers getting an unfair advantage.  These split mm decisions are not stopping an unfair advantage. 

They can get it nailed on now so I think the clear air rule should work well and better than it did before. By that time they are definetly gaining an advantage being so far ahead.

You just look at that picture and immediately think 'Lads... This might be a bit silly'.

I'll be absolutely fuming when we have this happen to us. Which, at the current rate, will be at the weekend.

I’m 75% sure his hip is actually farther forward than his knee at that point anyway, and 75% is 100% certain going by to the VAR.

You see to me this is largely unimportant. I can accept some offside goals happening which you struggle to figure out on slow motion re-play. 

What I can't accept are blatant penalties not given, or blatant mistakes everyone in the stadium saw except the referee. And ESPECIALLY what I can't accept is the vague definition of whether "a clear and obvious foul was made". 

Can't wait for the VAR to be tweaked. 

In regards to my third point I still can't comprehend how we didn't get our last minute goal against hammers

same. i couldn't care less about the marginal offisides. i get it's annoying, but the ball being a millimeter over the line is still a goal. yes offside is a little more difficult to pinpoint the moment the boot makes contact with the ball for the pass, but it's still being used.

the problem is they dont mind 'undermining' the lino, but when it comes to the ref it's a different story. basically socratis would have had to have made a diving one handed save that heaton would've been proud of in order for it to be clear and obvious. if it's 99% a pen, they wont overturn it

Just having the ref go to the screen like at the WC would already be a huge improvement. It might take a bit more time but **** it, at least you won't have to worry about refs covering each others' asses.

They're really making a effort to make themselves look like idiots.

Another one got the list of var offences. The Burnley free kick was moving in the run up to their goal. What is var for exactly?

To detect possible offsides on a molecular level not visible to the human eye

I thought that too but haven't seen a proper replay of it

There was a lot of outrage yesterday at the time but VAR did its job, he was miles offside, it dis however highlight another problem... It was an easy decision, really easy and yet it took 2 minutes?
