    Ridiculous that an article like this is written only a month into the season.

    Yet you clicked on it, read it and promoted it.

    So the article was actually as perfect as it could be.

    Indeedy.

    Looked at the table but didn't actually read the article.

    To me it again highlights how insidious VAR is becoming in football reporting/media.

    Same article came out last season about how the table would look if VAR was operating.

    That is not the problem...not one EPL ref has resorted to the screen yet, yet Fabio has to get some attention from the off and waste 3 minutes. That would not have been overturned in EPL due to their "high tolerance" policy.

    Yeah and there have been numerous errors by EPL refs and VAR...even the refs boss said so after 5 rounds. The reluctance, I.e. arrogance not to use the full technology shows how the EPL thinks it’s above the rules...the 3 min “waste” got the correct call.

    Agree to disagree....I think the EPL are on the right track. Let the refs do their job....and only call the absolute howler when it happens (your Maradona, Henry type of call).

    Honestly, are we any better off with this thing and the aggro it is causing?

    The EPL is trying to reduce as much of delays or stoppages of play due to VAR as they know it will effect fans attending games

    We'll see the same as last year. High frequency intervention to start the season, fans become disgruntled, media latch onto it, A-League conducts a ''review" and reduces intervention. Fans become happier.

    Oh I agree with let the refs do their job but why use the system half assed...use it to get everything correct or not at all.
    I reckon the mm measurements for offside are bullshit too..if it’s offside by less than could be determined by the linesman’s it shouldn’t be called offside..for **** sake no linesman can see a 2mm offside from halfway across the pitch...and don’t get me started on passive offside bullshit...

    If it's not a clear and obvious error then they shouldn't intervene. Period.
