There was a summit recently involving referees and managers in the Premier League in Scotland. The introduction of VAR (Video Assistant Referee) received overwhelming backing.
I’m fine with this in principle – as usual it’s how it will be interpreted that matters. I’ve seen recent examples where it’s been used to rule a goal as offside when it would have been nigh-on impossible for a linesman to see that in real time (and where the benefit of the doubt is supposed to go to the attacker).
It will be invaluable for clear situations such as ‘did the ball cross the line’ or mistaken identity but it does need clarification on the rules before being introduced more widely I feel.
