No officials are competent. Championship play-off final down south (so fairly big game) just saw a boy booked for a dive in the box. VAR takes a look at it and waves it on. You’d have to be blind to not see it was a penalty and yet…
 
I detest VAR but there is nothing to show that the ref got it obviously wrong.
I'd also point out that IF there's contact it's minimal and he really could have stayed on his feet. It was a dive or he made a meal of it. VAR, and more importantly for my hatred of VAR, the ref got it correct.

ETA Watching Colbeck's reaction, probably a penalty

I thought from one angle the boy played for it and seemed to be going down before contact and then from a different angle it looked like he was just cutting in and only looked off balance which made it look like he was going down. So from that if the ref had given it, I doubt the VAR would have overturned either. 

I think/ hope VAR is for things like this at 1:20 and not decisions that could either way.

I’ve watched that incident loads of times from the different angles and can’t decide if I think it’s a foul or not. In a normal game it would happen in the moment ref makes the 50/50 call and everyone argues about it afterward.

Now you get five mins of delay while having no clue what’s going on, then ref makes the 50/50 call. Then everyone still argues about it afterward. Complete nonsense.

It isn’t even like it’s a rare occurrence, exact same 50/50/could go either way call happened in the champions league final and in most games because football is such a great fast flowing game. Which suits are trying to ruin. Modern football is being tear gassed by UEFA then having to sit in silence for 5 minutes during the biggest game of the season while some p***k in a room is practically flipping a coin to decide if a goal should stand.

Heads gone, as it is every time I think about the fact we will have to endure this from next winter

Did anyone see the game from VARs first season in Serie A, where a player went through on goal and was blatantly brought down in the box. The referee waves play on as the players go absolutely ape shit, the other team hoof the ball up the pitch and it breaks to the striker who goes round the keeper and slots it in to an empty net. The players celebrate for a bit before the teams set up for kick off again, but the referee delays it for a few minutes before being told to go and look at the screen for the original penalty claim. It’s as blatant as they come so he has to disallow the goal and go back and give the penalty :lol: That’s the sort of stuff I’m expecting from our officials next year.  

Think that was a Feyenoord game in the Eredivisie but aye I mind that.

Not a pen for me. He's in the air with dramatic flair before contact is made.

Ironically, if he'd stayed on his feet then he'd have been wiped out or had a decent chance to score.

 

Always find this minimal contact patter amusing, you don't need much to trip a person up or throw them off balance, the slightest nudge, clicking of heels etc can do it.  Especially when they're running, and not standing there with their feet firmly planted waiting to repel contact, it's really a nonsense statement. You can be jumping over a tackle and get fouled too, with "minimal contact", that's what looks like happening there.

He's taken a bad touch hoping to get clipped. He thrown himself up in the air to fall and gets a slight bit of contact whilst there.

Anyone who's played a game of football knows the boy is at it.

I always find the "there was contact so definitely a penalty" patter, a nonsense statement.
A slight nudge is hardly likely to be a foul, clipping of heels almost certainly should be a foul.

Disappointing amount of "hE hAs a RiGhT tO gO dOwN!!11!1" patter in here.

The only players that have a right to go down are ones that can genuinely not stay on their feet.

Maybe just get some decent refs instead of Colum, Madden and the other useless blind c***s.

And will probably step up to a higher level fairly quickly if he wants to (and is able to at his age) on account of him having Champions League and international experience.

I had a work colleague a few years ago who ran the line in the Premier League - raking in a lot of extra dough.

He was looking at returning to Scotland so asked if he could transfer - they said aye, but you'll have to start off in League Two - meaning pocket change at best.

Funnily enough he stayed in England to run the line at Old Trafford and Anfield rather than Bayview and Cliftonville for 5% of the fee.

I notice that a friendly between Tollcross Thistle and Newmains United at the Oriam this afternoon is designated as a "VAR test game"

So when this pish comes in and a dodgy penalty is awarded against your team blame the amateur footballers of Edinburgh
