Like it or not, we’re getting it, but is it really the panacea that gets everything right? Football’s not that sort of game anyway, there’s too many shades of grey.

Last night saw two Champions League games decided by the technology, Man United went through on a terrible decision, watched in slo-mo, never a handball in a million years, then Porto went through on a good decision where the defender was penalised for shirt grabbing.

The point being, humans are still bottle of shiraz it up and getting it right in equal measure, does the VAR change anything?

The human element has been part and parcel of the game for 150 years or so. I'm the first to give refs a bit of lip when they fluff things up, but end of the day it's sport, played between humans on the pitch and there are swings and roundabouts. The pitch is where everything should be left to play the game. Video and stoppages for review are for play station and consoles. Get rid of it.
