BREAKING!! Premier League Announces Changes To VAR by AbdulHakeem44(m): 5:43pm On Nov 15, 2019
The Premier League has announced that fans inside stadiums, will get more detailed information about Video Assistant Referee (VAR) checks starting from December, according to Sky Sports.

For instance, under the new guidelines, a message will appear on the big screens saying ‘Checking Penalty – Possible Handball’, rather than just, ‘Checking Penalty’.

The decision was agreed by the Premier League and the referees’ association, PGMOL, at Thursday’s stakeholder meeting.

Both parties stated say they are committed to improving the consistency of decisions, speeding up processes and increasing communication to fans.

Pitchside monitors will continue to be used sparingly in the Premier League.

There had been calls for on-field officials to refer to the monitors more regularly, but the league said “it would be reserved for unseen incidents, or when information from the VAR is outside the expectation range of the referee.”

The statement added “ensuring the pace and tempo of Premier League football remains an important focus for clubs.”

My Opinion: This is nonsense, what change is in this? I thing English VAR should let referee check and decide for themselves rather than dictating decision for the referee from that useless room. Dictating gives room for bias and sentiment. Let us know the competent and incompetent referees. BTW, no competent referee in England before.

English F.A and VAR are scam.. If not for stupidity and nonentity how can someone from miles away from the stadium transmit/decide what should the referee decide when the referee is just metres away from where the incident is.. What is the essence of the pitch monitors?
Are they used for decoration or what?
Tottenham vs Everton match says it all
Arsenal last goal against crystal palace was denied for no reason
Foul against Origi which led to a goal against Liverpool was stupidly given..
The most annoying thing is that Martin Atkinson made those horrible Decisions in Arsenal draw against crystal palace and Liverpool draw against Man Utd respectively

VAR as used in the EPL is just one big joke!

Everything has to be done to bring to the standard at the La Liga and Serie A.

Liverpool vs Man City? That robbery appears to be a compensation for the bad officiating during Man Utd vs Liv or simply a clandestine plot to stop city.

What do I know sef? Only relieved it took us 9pts clear of rampaging Cityzens.
