Sound of Football Podcast 397 - Monitor duty

It would be lovely to start a new decade with optimism and hope, unfortunately we kick it off with a discussion on the latest developments in the English implementations of VAR. Sorry. It's use in only some of the ties in the weekend's FA Cup 3rd matches has brought more controversy to the troubled system, while one referee saw the opportunity to finally use the pristine pitch-side monitors. While many have called for the use of the monitors, will it actually make any difference to public perceptions of the system? Jan was our man in the ground at Selhurst Park to see all the inaction unfolding.

But there's a lot more that's been going on during our Christmas break for us to talk about, like the Boxing Day and New Year's Day TV bonanza, and Liverpool becoming World Champions. We also discuss the latest unrest amongst Sunderland fans.
