It's in the system now and I can't see them getting shot of it now so yes it should be all leagues.

They should have brought it in for all league games.

Yeah, not necessary for the smaller teams but crunch matches in the league need VAR.
We don't really need it but because some goals are crucial in a football game and some officials are crap at their job, we should have it.
And, with that, if it is good for one, it's good for all.

I really hope they do.
I am not a fan of VAR because I prefer good old fashioned refereeing but we all know what cards we've been dealt lately.

With the amount of tugging of shirts in the box, there'll be a penalty every corner

Aren't they only allowed so many views throughout the game, that used to be the rule with VAR?

I know when they came out it was suggested that the captain could request up to three in a game.
Because it hasn't really affected us, I really can't be sure of the rules.
