Whether down to the officials, the technology, or a bit of both, the VAR was a joke. I used to support the idea when I was younger. Now, I jusst think it interrupts the flow of the game, and if it is going to lead to as much controversy as not having it, I would rather let the game flow. I don't like to see a player sent off, but anyone who watched that as we saw it here n TV, would see that the elbow was at a wholly unnatural angle and pushed towards the jaw. Anyone who saw it must have seen the intent. The referee supposedly saw it thanks to the VAR. If he didn't and the ref couldn't see it from the angles we saw it, the VAR is crap. If he did see it, he saw that the intent was obvious, and had another reason for giving him yellow rather than red.
