You waited best part of a year for your opportunity to present to the Club board, and you were allocated just 15 minutes by dial-in, not face to face. And the Actions recorded say nothing other than TB saying “match day atmosphere should be fan led”. Hello? Do you read me, over?

Could FAB source the views of fans on VAR and present them to the board?
A quick survey on Qualtrics sent to everyone with a fan number with a simple keep VAR or bin it question, is all that is needed. I'm on the fence at this precise moment (HT). :unsure:

I’m very much against VAR mainly as I miss the emotion pre-VAR when a goal was scored but respect differing views. Im hoping that the club would support a ‘for’ or ‘against’ stance based on the opinion of fans. Galvanising supporters and taking our collective views to the decision makers at the club feels like the exact purpose of the FAB.

Please,please FAB, can you try to find a way to get the fan's voice heard here ??
A poll will likely find about 80% who would like VAR to be scrapped.......

Unfortunately in the FAB Terms & Conditions, agreed at the outset, the FAB has no input on anything related to what happens on the pitch.

Last season after the VAR debacle at Spurs we made representations on the grounds that VAR affected supporters match day experience.

We were told directly that it was an on pitch issue and as such nothing to do with us. We did get the clear impression that the club was at least as upset as we were about the situation, and that we could trust them to make more fuss about it than we could.

In my own personal opinion, I would like to see the club urgently ask the fans what we think about VAR and give them a guide has to how they should vote at the PL meeting in June. But I would also like to see peace in Gaza and a super efficient and reliable Southern Rail

Yes. My vote is to scrap it because overall it is awful for the fan experience inside the ground. Of course that will result in some errors not being fixed but not enough to make it worthwhile, and the swings and roundabouts will even things out.

One way or the other, the fan view should be heard. If your vote is to keep VAR then that is fair enough.

@Barry Izbak After Tony’s request regarding the FAB looking into match atmosphere, what ideas have been floated & what steps are going to be taken? Given this is a specific request from the club some proper dialogue with fans groups and transparency on what you think could help would be appreciated.

Or keep it, because more often than not it comes to the correct conclusion, but make the in-stadium fan experience better.

I like the NFL-style ref explaining the decision to the crowd that they've been doing in Australia, on the spot accountability.
