It’s a shambles to be fair. They continually get decisions wrongs, miss the blatant stuff and then they don’t intervene when the ref gets it wrong.

The bruno Fernandes penalty was absolutely shocking last night. Possibly the worst penalty decision ever, considering officials have VAR now.

Think the biggest problem is that VAR brought solutions to problems that were never there, absolutely nobody wanted offside to be given over the sake of pixels on a screen. Nobody was asking for goals to be disallowed because the ball glanced an arm and was practically undetectable by the naked eye. The moment they went against all our definitions of "Clear and Obvious" errors, is when it started to fail. Also I honestly think the best VAR decision was our goal against Sheffield, that's the spirit of VAR I wanted to see, a clear mistake by the linesman rectified, though a good portion of praise also needed to go to the ref in that incident for having the awareness to let it play out.
