Premier League 2020/21 Thread

Recommended Posts

Would've been a nice bonus if West Brom had nicked a point but tonight shows that these are tough games against the teams down at the bottom. We won both these matches comfortably.

 

Long way to go, plenty of twists and turns.

The West Brom offside was given by the lino.

Didn’t realise that to be fair, the question remains though. Can anyone still think VAR is good for football?

Is there anyone left out there who can say VAR is good for football?

 

 

We benefited twice in recent weeks. Chelsea home and Arsenal home.

We may have, but overall taking what it’s done or not done for us personally. For the game as a whole it is ruining the enjoyment of the game.

I agree its ruining the enjoyment in terms of what it used to be, but VAR has made many correct decisions that would have been incorrect decisions years ago. I also accept the men behind VAR have made many farcical decisions.

 

The handball rule is not a VAR issue. Thats something to do with the laws of the game.

I think if we don't win our next two games we will end up not finishing in the top 4.

We've had a bonus with Liverpool falling apart and Chelsea sticking with Lampard for so long.

 

Those two are the most likely to overtake us, I reckon. Still think we are doing really well.

Define "good for football" I guess.

 

It sure as hell frustrates fans but it does prevent the majority of wrong decisions.

 

It jusy exposes the rubbish rules that sometimes exist like handball and what part of your body is offside.

 

I don't hate it but it does take something from the game emotionally.

I don’t think it’s as bad as made out. They get it right more than wrong but I’m more critical of the people using VAR than VAR itself as a concept. The pure concept of VAR drawn up by IFAB works, the issue is the version implemented by PGMOL. They have taken a concept that works and implemented it incompetently.

I’ve have done more so tbf. Every so often I’ll succumb to the Prem but the number of disallowed bloody goals literally ruins it 

 

Does the number of goals that it 'gives' ruin it as well?

The success of football as a whole is based on the fans and their enjoyment of what they are seeing.

Anything that frustrates the hell out of those fans can not be good for the long term good of the game.

Some of us are already hooked on football, but those new fans coming in to the game, when getting frustrated by endless rules that make no sense will switch off.

VAR gets majority of decisions correct. Tbe handball rule and offside rule is not a VAR issue. Its,the lawmakers of football.

 

I do agree that it has ruined the pure excitement of goals beinv scored and the immediate euphoria.

I don’t think that’s necessarily true, the way it’s implemented all over the world is shocking and takes away the enjoyment of the game.
