Sound of Football Podcast 452 - The English VAR-iant

Long-time listeners will be more than aware of our relationship with VAR, and it's a subject we've continued to return to over the years. Even back when we started in 2009 we knew it would it be a bad idea but even we didn't think it would be this bad. The Premier League and its referees are coming together to produce an action plan to improve VAR for next season. While improvements are obviously needed, will this action plan separate the system even more from how it works in other competitions?

We also have a look at some common suggestions for improvements, and tell you exactly why they won't improve anything.
