On Wednesday night, with Chelsea having trailed 4-1 to Ajax, it looked as if, when Cesar Azpilicueta smashed the ball home, Chelsea had turned the match around, in almost an impossible fashion, to win the game 5-4.

However, after the intervention of VAR the goal was subsequently ruled out and Chelsea had to be content with a remarkable 4-4 draw.

Introduced this season, VAR has become a contentious subject with decisions that are being referred to the VAR referee often taking an age to be announced, much to the annoyance of those waiting for the outcome of the debate.

Sometimes, despite being referred to VAR, the decision made has, to many, been the wrong one.

And, when it comes to offside decisions, the old rule of favouring the attacker appears to have been thrown out of the window.

Hopefully, the situation will get better and the game will start to flow more freely.

But what are your views on VAR, should we bite the bullet and just let it run its course or should we pull the plug and let the game get back to how it was, free-flowing and subject to the odd mistake?

Is VAR Ruining The Game?
