  1. Implement when it is used differently, I believe VAR can be good for the game but is used incorrectly. Clear and obvious to means that it has been seen by a player or players &/or officials, but has been missed by the referee for whatever reason. Use a challenge system whereby the captain can call one VAR per half (carried over if correct) or the referee can call VAR if he genuinely believes that he is unsure of a major decision to make. After all, if no players on the pitch see it and complain to their captain, no officials see it and after the game there appears to be a toe offside, a slight handball, a dive, then who can complain???? Todays goal would have stood, but on the other hand, Wolves handball in the opener would not have been seen and Tottenham's toe offside goal against us would have stood as nobody on the pitch saw it, only VAR, therefore to me that cannot be Clear and Obvious! It would also give the captain more responsibility and if you have the ruling that only the captain and / or manager can make the call, then it would become more tactical as they would only trust who they think are their honest players / team mates and not heir divers / feigners.

  3. Mine was a 2-2 drawer at Elland Road when I was 9 as from Leeds. Larry May and Alan Smith.
  4. My daughter is 11. Supposed to be having a 1 on 1 day and the plan was mountain biking, but due to storms asked her if she fancied going to her first football match. Couldn't get tickets as Leicester sold out. Got home tickets in the family stand on the understanding that even if we do score have to stay quiet! So we drove up from South Devon It was a brilliant experience yet at the same time surreal and a true test of holding in our emotions. Her reaction - "Daddy, that was EPIC!"
  5. I went to the EPIC record breaking and equalling match last night. Took my daughter for her first game, drove up from Devon. SSSHHH, but in Southampton family stand trying to be quiet as couldn't get Leicester tickets. Some home fans around us started leaving at 2-0!!!!
