Sound of Football Podcast 388 - Why isn't VAR working?

The implementation of VAR in the Premier League has not been an easy process. While it is still in early days in England, the system itself has been around for a while in other leagues and competitions so why hasn't its introduction been easier? Do we even know what we want from the system?

Dr Tom Webb, Senior Lecturer at Portsmouth University and the Coordinator of the Referee and Match Official Research Network joins us to give his expert analysis of the issues involved in implementing technology into sport from his extensive research in sports such as rugby, cricket and, of course, ultimate frisbee.
