PREMIER LEAGUE fans are often quick to point the finger at officials when things don’t go right for their clubs.
But a new survey has revealed what they’d do to change the landscape of the league’s refereeing if it was up to them.
Supporters were quizzed in a new poll by BetVictor over what they would like to see changed about officiating in the Premier League.
And it would appear that fans have come to the end of their tether with the technology and are ready to get rid of it.
Over half (54.4%) of surveyed fans said they would get rid of VAR if they had the option to do so.
But it’s not just the tech that fans are sick of, but those in charge of it too.
Over two thirds of fans (68.6%) think the PGMOL should broaden their horizons and widen their refereeing pool by considering the inclusion of more foreign officials.
There is currently just one referee in the Premier League who doesn’t herald from England.
But fans seem to think that one external hire isn’t enough and would like to see the league cherry pick the footballing world’s best refs.
Despite a pretty damning assessment of the current landscape of Premier League officiating, there is one new rule than supporters are keen on.
Fans appear to like the increased added time that has come into action this term and are happy for it to stick around.
With even more late drama and an increase in last grasp goals an overwhelming 65.4% of Premier League fans want the new added time rules to continue going forward.
