Fans give thumbs down to VAR

A survey of over 33,000 supporters by the Football Supporters Association has revealed that a large majority think that VAR has had a negative effect on the game.

Chief among the concerns of fans was the removal of the spontaneous joy of goal celebrations (95%), and the impact of delays; 86% of TV viewers and 91% of match-goers stated that VAR decisions are generally not resolved in a reasonable amount of time.

Taking all things into consideration, only 26% of those polled said they supported the use of VAR.
