I'll be honest mate, were part of the problem.Who would want to be a ref in this environment? Time to end VAR and let the refs call the game again.
Us, pundits, managers, players and even clubs calling out poor decisions undermines their authority and does nothing to make it better.
I'm not saying they're above scrutiny but it's verging on a witch hunt every weekend.
I think the FA needs to grow some bollocks and as you say deal with VAR (get shot of the cunt) and accept no mouthing off form anyone. It's a simple thing that will instil respect and authority.
Referees make rough calls and on the whole do their job well. Human error is going to happen to anything where humans are involved... I don't want robot referees although if we keep going ,that's how it will inevitably end up.
