Everton supporters have shown their delight following the club, reportedly, expressing their concerns over VAR in the Premier League.

On Thursday morning, it was reported that the Toffees hierarchy had written a letter to the Premier League expressing concerns about the introduction of the Video Assistant Referee to the Premier League (as per Alan Myers).

The Goodison Park faithful have already been known to air their discontent over VAR (per Liverpool Echo), and were delighted to see the club echo their sentiments.

The decisions have been called into question by Toffees supporters after recent clashes with Brighton and Hove Albion and Tottenham Hotspur (per Liverpool Echo), leaving fans with a sour taste in their mouths over the technology.

Top dog, Marco Silva, also waded in on the act last week, claiming that VAR has cost the Merseyside club “five or six” points already this term (via The Guardian).

With Everton fans feeling they have seen enough of the Premier League’s latest gadget, they were relieved to see their club taking a similar stance on VAR.

What do we think?

It is without a doubt, VAR’s introduction to the Premier League has caused quite the stir amongst all fan bases (per BBC).

With clubs now speaking up against the use of the technology also, it will be interesting to watch how the saga continues to unfurl.
