It’s extraordinary how ludicrous VAR has become. Not only with their many errors but that it sucks the life out of the game. The joy of celebrating, which is what makes football so special, has been completely diluted.

No pen for Newcastle at Burnley yet a FK for that!!!! 💩
 
It really is a form of collective madness. But VAR is just another expression of our religious faith in technology. We worship tech (and its human evangelists) with all the wild unreason our ancestors brought to the old gods.
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
Stop blaming VAR, the technology doesn’t make the decisions, it’s the officials.

Where was this energy when Lamela was sent off vs arsenal???
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
VAR is trash. It’s actually a hindrance.
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
Probably shouldn't have spent years on the countries most popular football program examining every single bit of contact in minute detail
 
Gary Linker speaks for every football fan 👏🏻
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
Unfortunately VAR has without doubt lowered the standard of refereeing considerably!
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
When teams celebrate the goal is 60% disallowed. Then when no one celebrates, it’s allowed 🤷🏼‍♀️
 
They talk about VAR like its not a person operating it. Just shows we have rubbish referees
 
It’s extraordinary how ludicrous referees have become, not VAR.
VAR is just exposing their lack of common sense and understanding/interpretation of the rules of our game.
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
The judgements going on during football matches, are very poor now a days. Both VAR and refs involved.
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
Lamela got a red for similar a few weeks ago. Consistency
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
VAR is ludicrous but what about how players react these days to the slightest of touches 🤷‍♀️, why isn’t it being called out by commentators ?
 
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
There surely has to be a vote after this season by all PL teams on if they want VAR next season.
 
I have had enough 🤦‍♂️never thought I would fall out of love with football!
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
Make the officials accountable for their decisions. Football people also need to be involved in the decision making. We need to understand why officials see it differently and educate them. It's not the technology, it's the fact that the officials don't understand the game
 
i hope we learn from this and replays dont get more common in the nba
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
But you cried your eyes out for it to be introduced though 🤔
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
How about instead of blaming VAR blame the patheticness of footballers going down as if they’ve been shot. Absolute pansies. Pathetic.
 
In reply to @jreidchapman
Genuinely ruining the game.
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
Good, you've opened your eyes re VAR. You advance to Level 2! When we can expect it to dawn on you re uncontrolled immigration and populist socialism?
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
The Officials using it are 2 blame not VAR itself 👍
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
Did you not think about the possibility of this happening when you were advocating for technology in football weekly on MOTD years back? 🤔🤔
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
You wanted it you fraud
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
My Bro Gary you no the crack son wee bastard get him 3 match ban for cheating @caoinhin
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
I've stopped watching now.
 
Instead off having a go at the technology why don't have a go a the officials using it who despite getting all the help in the world and watching incidents many times over still manage to make awful decisions
 
Yesterday we sent Raphinha down the wing and he look a millimetre offside and I already knew in my head if we scored I wouldn’t celebrate. Give us back the sport we loved.
 
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
It either gets sorted this summer or the games hard core following will find other interests as the game will have had its life source smashed out of it....GOALS...
 
You asked for it. Made your bed, Gary.
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
It bring justices which u don’t like for sure.
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
Too much cheating. But no one mentions it. Rashford minutes before going down holding his face. Son the same.
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
Should’ve been sent off, second yellow
 
I’ve been saying this for ages scrap it ASAP
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
The rules and referees are the problem, not VAR
 
It was a clear and obvious error from the ref! VAR this time took the right decision 👍
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
Please stop being so over dramatic
 
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
I was all for it but its a shambles at the moment.. and nobody is listening
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
Just celebrate the goal, then when var checks it, and confirms it a goal we get to double celebrate 😉
 
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
It’s pish, get it to fuck.
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
Absolute joke how they disallowed Cavanis goal.
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
I can't believe I'm saying this, but I disagree with you on this one Gaz
 
 
Facts. Nothing enjoyable about premier league football anymore.
 
Lol VAR doesn't make decisions, the refs do
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
No idea if the decision is right or not - but what’s beyond dispute is that the VAR ‘system’ is just plain and simple, broken
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
Apart from that, ref had a clear view of the matter and still disallowed the goal.
 
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
If it's a foul it's a second yellow
 
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
I have a hard time understanding why this is “ludicrous”? Seems like an obvious freekick to me.
 
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
It has really destroyed the game, there is no emotion in scoring now because you scared that it might get overturned. It is absolutely horrendous
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
Game is Gone , Its finished
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
When oh when will they start to look at replays at normal speed??? Slowmo distorts movement.
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
I'm done. Pointless.
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
Why is nothing happening then?
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
A disgrace what happened and that Son is a major shithouse...
 
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
You, BBC, Sky and other so called pundits have been critical of refs for years,analysing every their every move. You’ve demanded this monster #var now get rid of it, rather than trying to run the country.
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
I say it again, surely if pundits get onto the @FA they will scrap it, if enough pressure is put on them.
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
Funny how we don’t see all these VAR useless decision in other league ... There is no common sense in all these 🤦🏾‍♂️
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
VAR most definitely the worst thing to happen to the game we all love.
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
Hahahahaah are you kidding?
 
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
The idea is to eliminate the Farcelona scandal of champions league unfortunately referees are a disgrace.
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
VAR Giant make the decision. The ref did. VAR just advised to look.
 
Absolutely this! Needs changing very quickly, a great game is descending into a farce!
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
 
Ναι αλλά πλέον πανηγυρίζουν προκρίσεις και τίτλους αυτοί που το αξίζουν.
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
You not embarrassed by Son?
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
Foul, yes but had nothing to do with the goal.
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
Cavani still celebrated. You can't take that away from him.
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
Trouble is with VAR is that if there wasn’t the goal , the foul would not be given and potential red card avoided
 
 
Time to retire Gareth
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
Player tries to grab opponent goes down as if he’s been shot and goal gets disallowed
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
How can a ref give a foul for that joke then a booking for cavani just then refs wank games gone
 
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
His eye is apparently perfectly fine 🙄🙄
 
Couldn’t of put it better tbh
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
I miss the days when striking a player with the arm was allowed. The good old days 🙄
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
Well until someone does something about it no use complaining ... Need action
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
Football about to go extinct if d rules around VAR is not reviewed
 
Aquí también lo dice bien Gary Lineker.
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
At least you have VAR. In Madrid it doesn't seem to be working 🤔🤔🤔🤔
 
 
In reply to @GaryLineker
but the ref has looked at that and also deemed it to be a foul? so the ref also isn't absent from the blame , blame VAR , blame the system , but the ref has looked at that and said its a foul which is a fucking shambles.
