I really hope English officials were watching the World Cup closely.

VAR should only change the on-field officials' decisions when there is a clear eff-up, not because a defender lightly brushed against a forward 25 yards away from the ball.

Realistically, the only situations it should lead to a decision being overturned are clear and obvious fouls which are missed or "goals" which are in fact offside or scored using the hand.

If a contentious decision arises, the referee should either trust the VAR ref that it is indeed a clear eff-up or if he wants to look at the video, no more than 2 or 3 quick views. If the eff-up isn't immediately clear, then it can't be a clear eff-up, and he should remain with his original instinct.

Unfortunately to date, English officials have generally been in line with other European leagues where VAR is used and have been too slow and indecisive. VAR is not a "have as many goes as you like" tool for officials to get every little element of a game perfectly correct. It is a tool to help avoid bad match-changing decisions.

I support VAR for the WC but day to day football is pointless. Slows things up and we still get human error and subjective decisions. Folk spend too much time worrying about refereeing decisions, play well and get your tactics right and you get the luck, Boly's goal was deserved.

If there are enough VAR reviews at games, some of us will miss our last train home at evening games... :roll:
