WHO Poll
Q: 2023/24 Hopes & aspirations for this season
a. As Champions of Europe there's no reason we shouldn't be pushing for a top 7 spot & a run in the Cups
b. Last season was a trophy winning one and there's only one way to go after that, I expect a dull mid table bore fest of a season
c. Buy some f***ing players or we're in a battle to stay up & that's as good as it gets
d. Moyes out
e. New season you say, woohoo time to get the new kit and wear it it to the pub for all the big games, the wags down there call me Mr West Ham

Video Ref / Appeal System
Never thought I would say this, but after the last games I can't help thinking that it's probably about time that this comes in. Too many decisions going for the big teams.

Re: Video Ref / Appeal System
All that needs to happen (and I said it on the match thread) is that Referees need to be told to make decisions only if they are 100% sure. Yesterday there was no way Madely could have been 100% sure if Antonio had tripped Loftus-Cheek or whether it was inside or outside the area, thus meaning he must have "guessed" and got it wrong, and that's what is unacceptable.

If a Referee makes an error by "not" giving something then fine I can accept that to an extent. Like last weeks "foul" on Randolph, I didn't see that first time on the TV so I can understand how the Ref missed it, and if he missed it he can't give it. However yesterday he guessed and blew it,.

Re: Video Ref / Appeal System
It doesn't always work in rugby and has sometimes created its own problems. Not sure.
But the system doesn't work at the moment, so anything that improves it, even if it is imperfect, would be better than the existing reliance on refs being biased by crowds and big money clubs.

Re: Video Ref / Appeal System
Lots of problems with the introduction of such systems disruption of play being the biggest.

But if you were to at least try it with penalties it would not be that much of a delay. Play has already stopped and if you had a system which cued up 5 second clips of all the angles it is only a minute or so delay for someone to watch them all even in slow motion. It takes that to prep for a penalty.

Next question being whether you want the ref or someone else to watch the video. The NFL/NHL have lots of problems but I think they get it right when it is the ref that is the reviewer. Less like he is being overuled, more like a tool of his job. Maintains his authority.

So put a booth in the tunnel and try that for a bit and see if we can work out solutions for other incidents.

Re: Video Ref / Appeal System

Actually that is more the point than any use of video refereeing, yesterday all that would have happened is we would spent an extra 30 minutes or so sorting out the wrong decisions that idiot made yesterday if any Video Ref system was in place.

Quite clearly the officials gave something they didn't see so guessed and that is simply dishonest not a mistake, they simply need to be brought to book to ensure they control games in the future with a bit more integrity.

Re: Video Ref / Appeal System
Perhaps a '2-appeal per team' system might work, just as in cricket. No one is going to use up an appeal over a dodgy outcome, but a team can use their appeals in cases where they definitively think they have a just cause. If they're right, then the decision is overturned, if they're wrong then they only have one appeal left.

Red cards, goals scored, penalties and perhaps free-kicks awarded are the obvious candidates for appeals. Not sure if there should be anything else. The bonus of this system for penalty appeals is that the onus will be on the person deemed to have committed the foul to come clean with their captain. No point in wasting an appeal. At the same time, the cheats are going to be found out too, and that can only be a good thing. I loathe someone being red-carded due to an oscar-winning performance by an opponent probably more than anything else.

A way to restart the game after an appeal is successful would have to be worked out. Clashing legs like hockey-sticks isn't going to work....

I understand the hassles with interrupting a flowing game, but surely at the same time we should be getting into an era of video review with the amount of money riding on the game? The view that the big clubs are important for the sport can be countered by the argument that the sport will gain more followers if cheating and poor decision-making is dealt with and the results even the field to the point where more clubs, and therefore more fans, actually get to like the game. Millions of pounds and euros now ride on the back of every game. To have one man making decisions that could cost some people their career, and some clubs their very existence is surely a joke in this age of the instant replay?

Re: Video Ref / Appeal System
I am against Video refereeing.

As much as I don't like the game I watched the first England game in the rugby world cup.

These "30 seconds to decide" bullshit comments are wrong. The first half of a game, which is 40 mins, took over 54. All because of "getting the right decision".

Just made a boring game even more fucking boring.
Not for me.

We will get a few good decisions now come our way.

Re: Video Ref / Appeal System
Just don't employ any fucking half-wit as a professional referee. That's all we need to do.

Quite clearly; it's far too easy for people to qualify and officiate games at the highest level.

Again, that referee yesterday - Madley or whatever his cunt name is - just cries out complete and utter fucking idiot.

If he can ref top-flight games; you might as well let an ape run around freely with a whistle and do as it pleases.

a digital marker from the wall to the ball, 10 yards would be good too as when the ref put his line Chelsea moved the ball back

Re: Video Ref / Appeal System
Even after today I'm still against video replays. I mean, people on here are still arguing the toss over the penalty decision today. There needs to be better referees rather than a complete overhaul of the process.

Re: Video Ref / Appeal System
Whilst video reviews would sort out some clear cut decisions (e.g. today being a free kick rather than a penalty), how many decisions are still debatable after seeing a dozen replays from different angles?

Alfs 12:59 Sun Mar 20
Re: Video Ref / Appeal System
Video appeal isn't going to happen for a few years yet, but a retrospective system might in terms of cheating..

Each match is assessed and if a player is to be found to be diving it would be 2 pts. Diving to get a penalty, 3 pts etc. For every 5 points a club gets they are deducted a point.

Or something like that.

Re: Video Ref / Appeal System
There should be an IQ Test to become a referee.

You must score at least 100 i.e. possess at least an average IQ.

That's all I want.

That way, we could avoid people like this cunt today - fucking idiot features - royally fucking things up and potentially costing clubs tens of millions of pounds.

I reckon this bloke, at best, has an IQ of 90.

With a video review system refs will be more likely to give a penalty and have it overturned, so they do just that, with review as a back-up.

Works well here in the NFL and NHL.
