At first I was against it. But then I heard the VAR referees have to wear the full referees kit and now I'm for it.

Nah I'm kidding. It'll be a fucking disaster.

VAR imo is going to make the game far too clinical....taking away the emotion, the highs, lows.... was it a foul or wasn't it, was he offside or not or maybe just about.....talking points will be reduced and all the shit will probably be about a shitload of technology that is taking over from the human factor. Fuck it....a load of bollox!

Goal line cameras....yes. VAR for all other instances....a big NO!

Yeah, it's been pretty great. I think it's revealed how conservative refs otherwise are with decisions that aren't immediately obvious. Snapshot incidents where the defender would ordinarily get the benefit of the doubt are now leading to the correct decision without anxiety. More goals, happier players, happier fans and added drama value. What's not to like.
