(VAR) will be “dialled back” in the new Premier League season say league representatives.

The controversial video assistant referee was originally introduced to the Premier League in 2019 to review “clear and obvious errors” for: goals, penalties, straight red cards and mistaken identity.

All though fans, players and clubs alike have viewed it more as a inconsistently utilised meddling force that to some “has ruined the game”.

“Contact on its own is only part of the what referees should look for,” said referees’ chief Mike Riley.

“It’s not sufficient just to say: ‘Yes, there’s contact. سباق الخيل مباشر ’ I think, partly, we got into that frame of mind by the forensic analysis that went into VAR awards.

“I think it moves the dial back towards where we were in a pre-VAR world. We don’t want trivial things penalised.”

The new rules for the 21/22 season are as follows:

In the case of handball:

  • What is the hand or arm position in relation to body movement?
  • Is the body being made unnaturally bigger? 1xbet casino

For accidental handball:

  • It is an offence if an attacker scores directly or immediately after the ball touches a hand or arm.

For offsides:

  • Benefit of doubt for attacking sides now restored.

“The toenails and noses that might have been offside last year won’t be next season,” said Riley. قوانين بلاك جاك

“We will carry on following the same process as last year, so you’ll apply the pixel lines, place the attacking line and defending line on top, and then the thicker broadcast lines. But where they overlap those, situations will now be deemed as onside.”
