Karren Brady has come out to blast the standard of refereeing in the Premier League. He recently revealed that refereeing itself has been really poor this season, and it is possibly the worst he has seen in the Premier League.
According to him, there will surely be statistics to prove him wrong, but he surely can’t remember any other time when the whistle was so out of tune with the game.
He added that VAR was sold to us as a way of perfecting a decision, but the reverse has been the case.
His words, “The Stockley Park mob, blinking in front of an array of screens, may get more offsides right although, goodness knows, they often do so to the fury of people who don’t see any sense in arms or shirt sleeves being involved.”
“The refereeing itself has been poor this season, possibly the worst I have seen in the Premier League.”
“No doubt there will be statistics that prove me wrong but, subjectively, I can remember no time when the whistle was so out of tune with the game.”
“VAR was sold to us as a way of perfecting decisions.”
“These two red cards alone proved the opposite: not until the refs were requested to look at the screen did sendings off seem even a possibility.”
“Especially since both the incidents took place right in front of the ref’s own eyes.”
“But despite that, both took the VERY broad hint from Stockley Park – and thrust out red cards to the amazement of the players and disgust of millions of viewers.”
“Of the Balbuena incident against Chelsea, manager David Moyes said the decision was ‘rank, rotten’, adding: ‘I think it’s been made by somebody who has never played the game.”
“And, yes, he’s absolutely right. VAR never played a game and never will.”
