Well, it won't be three calls each. That's half asking the managers to referee the games. They won't take responsibility if they miss one.

But even so, yes. If PSG had a call or two left they'd have thrown themselves on the floor to stop the momentum of the game.

this. don't know the best amount to use but the gridiron version, basically.

atm the media goes mad for decisions, but the ones it goes mad over are virtually always the ones the director chose to broadcast multiple replays of.

the other night di maria was clean through and hacked down and there wasn't a single replay. the psg manager could instantly use a review. if it fails he loses it, if it succeeds he gets another.

the fact is though you're still at the mercy of the angles immediately available and of the people charged with deciding. some will always be better at interpreting images than others. some incidents will have an angle that seems to prove what happened conclusively, most probably won't unless they were obvious anyway.

Also, when wrong decisions are made the game stops anyway usually resulting in two or three minutes of commotion. If anything this would eliminate that.

Play continues until it's called back if it's summat the ref missed. Easy.

Usually wrong "decisions" aren't part of the game. They're missed. So the game doesn't stop at all.

But as we know, many decisions are a matter of interpretation. And many managers would misuse their calls. And it wouldn't stop them or anybody else from talking endlessly about the wrong decisions that were allowed to stand. It's basically futile.

This is the obvious structure and it's what will happen.

But it'll lead to a lot of uncertainty. I like to keep as close to instantaneous calls as possible. Sometimes we get some confusion, but the idea of half celebrating or watching a team counter attack knowing it could be pulled back at some point feels very anti football to me.

I want to know, most of the time, whether play is live. Not play on just in case something isn't given thirty seconds from now.

i agree, to an extent....

It could work, but only if it's a limited amount of appeals at the manager's or captain's discretion. Or, as you say, we're quickly going to descend into farce where fans and players think that the TV ref is going to rescue them from every bad turn they get in a game.

In an ideal scenario, a linesman cocks up and doesn't see an offside..everyone thinks it's a goal but before the game restarts, a coach uses one of his appeals, video ref analyses it, sees it's offside and the correct decision is made. Free kick to the defending team.

In the nightmare scenario you have the ref being hounded and every little foul being endlessly scrutinised over video ref to see has someone grazed another player's heel...

It's a potential pandora's box.

How often when a team scores do we see opposition defenders raise their arms and appeal for offside? How often do we as spectators look to the linesman to see if a goal is good? Think of all those occasions and that's how much uncertainty you'll add to every goal. That's how often you'll half-goon because you're not sure if it'll be chalked off in thirty seconds. Joy-sapping bureaucracy killing the game.

Flag down on the play!! Fuck off.

We should try and keep the game the kids / Sunday leaguers etc play as close as possible to the game at the top imo. So it's a no fucking way from me.

Hopefully they don't do it for offsides.

We've had 6 wrong offsides go in our favour at OT so far this season.


That was what Matt le Tissier said after the cup final anyway.....
