The EFL Championship is hailed as “the 5th biggest league in Europe”. Watching the EFL highlights tonight there have been so many refereeing errors today & last night that maybe VAR would improve these very poor decisions?
I was actually quite sceptical initially about VAR but there have been so many errors in the last 24 hours that the alternative is even worse.
Wycombe should have had a penalty for handball today at Swansea, Watford’s disallowed equaliser at Luton should have stood and how Derby didn’t get a late penalty at Blackburn is beyond me when their player was completely cleaned out. Sheffield Wednesday’s penalty (although saved) wasn’t a penalty & Lansbury shouldn’t have been sent off as he never touched the ball, although initially it appeared he did.
If promotion to the Premier League is worth £50m the number of terrible decisions needs to be minimised. Referees are only human but far too many bad decisions are spoiling the 5th biggest league in Europe.
