Some updates of VAR. Curious how many GKs encroach.

Quote

Use of VAR
Video Assistant Referees (VAR) will be involved in the decision-making process during all Premier League matches for the second season, after the system made its debut in 2019/20.

In July this year, the International Football Association Board (IFAB) transferred the responsibility of VAR to FIFA.

And at the Premier League's Annual General Meeting in August, Shareholders unanimously approved its implementation in line with the full FIFA VAR protocol for the 2020/21 season.

This campaign there will be a few differences to how VAR was used last season.

Referee Review Area (RRA)
There will now be increased use of the RRA, which will be used for subjective decisions in three key areas: goals, red cards and penalty kicks.

Goalkeeper encroachment on penalties
The protocol does not allow for tolerance levels, so if the goalkeeper saves a penalty and his foot is over the line then VAR will advise it is retaken.

If the goalkeeper is off his line and the ball hits the post or goes over, it won't be retaken unless the 'keeper has a material impact on the kick being missed.

Player encroachment on penalties
This is now judged on any part of a player’s body that is on the ground when the kick is taken. So if any part of the foot is on the penalty area or arc line it is encroachment.

The player must still have a material impact on the outcome of the kick.

Flagging for tight offside calls
When an immediate goalscoring opportunity is likely to occur, the assistant referee will keep their flag down until the passage of play is completed.

Once a goal is scored or the chance is gone, the assistant will then raise the flag to indicate the initial offence. If a goal is scored the VAR will then review the offside judgement.

Green and red lines for tight offside calls
For tight offside calls, the VAR can use crosshair technology, drawing two lines that are positioned for the defender and attacker.

These lines can also take into account parts of the body that are off the ground, such as a player's shoulder, which is shown as a 3D vertical line.

In the Premier League, the whole process is displayed to broadcasters so fans can see in real time how a decision is reached.

This season, when the VAR uses the crosshair technology, the attacking offside line will turn green or red depending on whether the player is onside or offside. A graphic will also show the decision.

Interesting purchase. I wonder why they went with Troyes that is like 90 miles from Paris when both Paris FC and Red Star are close to their level and in the city. PSG's monopoly of Paris football is insane for a city of 12 million in the country that just won the world cup.

Damn. Bournemouth getting relegated from the PL two years in a row would really be something.

Time to amend those Liverpool predictions. No Salah and Mane for January and part of February.

Then swap you and City. I still don't trust us to win the league.

But Chelsea will still be subjected to the financial fair play (FFP) rules, despite the ridiculous claims that those rules were no longer relevant after City overturned Uefa’s two-year European ban in July.

The Kingdom of Bahrain recently bought a stake in Paris FC. Red Star's history and fanbase is pretty political. I'm not sure they'd be big fans of the ownership.

Top 10:

1.) Chelsea

2.) City

3.) Liverpool

4.) Man U

5.) Tottenham

6.) Wolves

7.)  Arsenal

8.) Everton

9.) Southampton

10.) Sheffield United

Relegated: West Brom, Villa, Fulham

Only reason I think Crystal Palace avoids relegation is that I think they'll have Eddie Howe as their manager by Boxing Day. They might be the worst team in the PL, talent-wise though.

I know more about Paris FC than I do Red Star. What's their past like? I used to watch a shit ton of Ligue 1 and Ligue 2, but it was when both were in lower leagues. RIP CA Bastia.

Pretty far left on the political spectrum.

Fuck all y'all for thinking Villa get relegated.

 

I mean... They might.

 

But fuck y'all anyway, just on principle.

thanks for posting this.

my hot takes:

the chase group: everton with hamez & richarlison could pester wolves for best darkhorse, at the expense of leicester who did fuckall to stay relevant (1 signing, a belgian LB).

biggest surprise at the top: chelsea with werner and silva (on a free!?!) have added a lot, and of course brit pundits can't bring themselves to mention the kid and his form after the restart.

at the bottom: hoping Fulham can find a way (McBride, Dempsey, Lewis holla)

YNWA BITCHES.

I thought the first penalty was the wrong call. It caught Koch's leg before his arm.

Regardless, optimistic start for Leeds. My top half of the table prediction looks good.

Leeds will fade the last third of the season. Thats basically what happened under Bielsa in the Championship. I'm skeptical they would have gotten promoted without the pause due to COVID.
