The VAR thread
« on: Tue 04 Sep 2018 17:04 »
Probably about time we had a thread over here.

Don't think there was too much to note from the recent League Cup games.

Telegraph reporting that VAR will be tested across all Saturday 3pm games in the Premier League on September 15th to ascertain their ability to cope on a busy Saturday afternoon with multiple matches but obviously VAR won't affect the actual decisions in this case and they won't be communicating with the on-field officials.

Could be interesting to see who is left off the list appointments for that Saturday as presumably they will want current SG referees plus possibly Swarbrick/Jones to be used.

I would have thought that they won't be enough officials to fulfill the fixtures across the board if SG1/2  for example are used as board duties in the top flight to cover VAR when it's fully operational.  NL officials would then be needed to supplement the championship.

Just the one decision would have been changed apparently - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/45534893

So they wouldn't have disallowed David Silva's goal for handball in the same game then?

As the ball clearly bounced up and is controlled by Silva on the chest, no.

There is a Douglas Costa VAR incident that is doing the rounds? I haven't seen it yet.

I can't watch the video - the photos made me feel sick. What a vile, disgusting thing to do! Hope he gets a long ban for it, apart from being vile, it's a health hazard.

VAR is to be used for six matches in the next round of the League Cup - the games at Manchester United, Wolves, Liverpool, Arsenal, West Ham and Everton.

I don't think the refereeing appointments have been made yet though? Will be interesting to see if every SG referee is used as both referee and VAR for such games across the season.

Following on from Saturday's trial in the 3pm PL matches, apparently there were some VAR trials at St James' Park yesterday, with amateur teams being given the chance to play on the pitch with SG officials taking the games and the system in operation.

Has VAR changed any decision in the League Cup yet this season?

A bit unfair on the clubs that get eliminated. Let’s hope that Liverpool PSG or Napoli are KO’d by a dodgy decision!
