EPL season 2019 2020

Recommended Posts

The EPL kicks off this evening with Liverpool v Norwich, the big question is VAR which is being used for the first time.

In your opinion, is it a good or bad introduction to the English top flight game?

I don't like the Premier League. 

I prefer the Championship, much more entertaining with teams battling it out for a seeming never to end season :banana:

Me too mate.

However, I do like seeing the Villa get humped. 

3-1 Tottenham who never got out of second gear. Super Jack was invisible!

Anyone see the goal disallowed for Spurs by VAR ? If that is what is wanted then it really is going against the spirit of the game imo. A delay of around 2 minutes apparently. Farcical.

going by Norm's image you think that was correct ? What part of the body is behind the defender mate ? Surely VAR should be used for 'blatant' instances & not micro ones ?

If you believe a goal, is a micro instance, I would 100% disagree 

 

I also believe Norms Photo perfectly highlights he is off side......

Yep, fair point above......

 

Have a look at the red and blue lines on Norms photo, pretty conclusive evidence 

 

Hence the correct decision being given by using VAR.....
