nobody seems to know, here are the current year's rules regarding FA Cup, rules=clear as mud

Video Assisted Referees
“VARs” means Video Assisted Referees as defined under the protocol of the International Football Association Board (“IFAB”).
The Association reserves the right to select any match in the Competition Proper, at its absolute discretion, in which VARs will be used. This means that the Referee in such matches can make decisions based on information provided by the VARs in accordance with the relevant protocol of the IFAB.
Guidance regarding the use of VARs will be provided by The Association to the relevant Clubs at the appropriate time.

But he didn't "make a decision based on information provided by the VARs"... It appeared he had those decisions made for him!

How the feck can a ref make a decision without seeing the replay(s) on a screen, for himself?  This is a crap way of doing things, imo.  I just presumed it was gonna be the same as in the WC, when the ref tootles off to take a look himself.

4.6m watched the penalty shootout. Thats pretty neat.

It would be (neat) if only it were true!

You and I both know that 4.55m were actually in the kitchen, making their cocoa, seeing as the news was delayed!


...Still... feck 'em, eh!  They made the stats look good!  happy0009.gif
