Well done LCFC.


It’s probably for the best if you’re not a fan of either team ... it means that Chelsea will be possibly even more determined to win the CL Final ..

The only thing keeping VAR alive in its current form, is that half the fans are always going to be in favour of a decision.

Unlike something like the Super League where everyone was against it, and it went away as quickly as it started.

players cheat, and with var, rather than sorting mistakes, it's changed the nature of the cheat.

I didn't watch the game, ive watched so many of these finals that have been dire

Could AI automated offside be the answer to VAR.

Automated offsides could be in use in Premier League by 2023 after success of secret trials

Fifa hopeful that ‘game-changing’ technology using artificial intelligence will also be in place for 2022 World Cup



Hawk-Eye has been testing its “skeletal player tracking system” at one Premier League club this season, with more trials planned at Liverpool, Chelsea and the two Manchester clubs next campaign

Martyn Ziegler, Chief Sports Reporter

Thursday May 27 2021, 5.00pm, The Times

New technology designed to instantly detect offsides by using artificial intelligence is on course to be introduced in the Premier League in two years’ time after “extremely promising” results from secret tests at one top-flight club and with more trials planned at four English stadiums next season.
The automated offside system would replace the controversial VAR offside lines and should provide match officials with an instant message sent to their watch when a player is offside, instead of what is now often a wait of a minute or longer — which has led to frustration among players, managers, pundits and fans. The referee and assistants would then have to judge only if the attacker deemed offside was interfering with play.

The all wanted the story for Leicester I am afraid
Sadly Pundits and Commentators are very biased.

I remember earlier on in the season when it was Blues vs Huddersfield, we had about 3 or 4 shots back to back that went narrowly wide, yet when Huddersfield skied one over the bar the Sky Sports Pundit said "best chance of the game so far."

I personally believe that VAR has a place in Football if handled properly, sadly Football has made two mistakes with VAR though.

1. A body part being in an offside position shouldn't actually count as offside. It should clearly be most of the body being in an offside position means your offside but the geniuses that run Football can't see that simple solution.

2. Is some of the terrible decisions that Referees have made around handball, again it should only be an offence if the player is deliberately stopping the ball from going in the net, or a player trying to pull off another Hand Of God moment.

Subjectively I'd like these VAR decisions to be decided quicker so the match doesn't lose it's flow.

But yes I don't get fans that get a kick out of the wrong decisions that VAR makes, even if it favours their team.
