The impact of VAR on the game has been a subject of debate, with some arguing that it has improved decision-making, while others believe it has created more controversy. PGMOL chief Howard Webb acknowledged that there have been mistakes despite the introduction of VAR, such as incorrect overturns and missed incidents.
He also admitted that the call in a particular instance was wrong. This indicates that VAR has not completely eradicated errors from the game, as the total number of mistakes has only marginally decreased from the previous season.
Webb’s statement raises questions about VAR’s effectiveness in improving the accuracy of refereeing decisions. Despite the technology’s implementation, there are still concerns about the consistency and impact of VAR on the game.
Consequently, the debate about whether VAR is ultimately good or bad for football continues.
