I loved football without VAR..
Just that instant gratification. That instant joy. That moaning about a ref on the Monday morning too.
I would willingly take a drop off in the percentage of correct decisions ...if it meant the drama and the instant euphoria could come back to my football world.
I know it would cost us at times and some would yearn for VARs return. Not me......I watched football for 50+ years without VAR sucking the life out of my enjoyment.
Would scrap it in a heartbeat. Just keep goal-line technology.
ditto mate. I was here on my own on Saturday, watched Tommy's goal go in and jumped up and down with joy, shouting at myself and the telly, congratulating him for putting us in front and for a more than likely 3 points.
destroyed my completely and utterly over the top feeling of course.
not only that I had to wait maybe 2 minutes or longer, to get what the commentators had told me almost immediately. "they're checking for something else" so I thought maybe just maybe........
and to be honest, with your 50 plus years of watching, you go back to the time pre MotD or The Big Match when you had absolutely no idea whether or not it was onside or offside. and no way of ever knowing. EVER. you had to rely on a newspaper writer to tell you. and even then it was just a wild guess.
