Episode 13

This week saw the return of Mark to co-host the podcast as the guys turned their attention to the FA Cup and the Challenge which plays it’s final round of matches before the playoffs this weekend.  One of the main topics for discussion was more VAR drama as the Video Referee continues to kill the K-League star. This week there were penalties given and taken away and goals chopped off all for what, to the naked eye, seemed ridiculous decisions. The Supermatch ended 2-2 due to a dubious VAR penalty and then Suwon crashed out of the FA Cup with VAR playing yet another heavy role in the proceedings. It’s fairly safe to say that VAR hasn’t been the roaring success many thought, and hoped, it would be and it’s definitely something that needs fine tuning for next year. Interestingly in my old days working in IT VAR stood for Value Added Re-seller, one would imagine you could travel the length and breadth of Korea without finding anyone who sees some added value of this system!!

Also on this week’s show the boys review the recent matches in both the Classic and Challenge, relive a VAR-esque moment involving Dejan and a big screen, reveal their losers and winners of the week, look ahead to the weekend’s clashes and more……
