LADbible’s Agree To Disagree: Pro-VAR Vs Anti-VAR
This week's edition of Agree to Disagree tackled one of the most divisive issues in football: VAR.
SPORTbible's Alex Reid sat across the table from ODDSbible's Josh Akers to discuss the pros and cons of the controversial technology.
Aberdeen fan Alex believes VAR has vastly improved football in England, increasing the number of correct decisions being made every week, while Josh, a Leeds United supporter, thinks it's destroying the fan experience.
"It's ludicrous to say it's overall had a positive impact," Josh tells Alex during the heated debate. "The whole experience of watching football has been ruined and, at the end of the day, it's an entertainment product."

But Alex doesn't take it lying down, arguing that "fans will always moan about something". He says: "It's here to get decisions right and that's what it's done. What more do you want it to do?"
The two also discuss whether they think VAR will still be with us in a few years' time, with Josh fearing so, claiming football bosses are too scared to admit they have made a mistake.
Will Alex and Josh manage to see eye-to-eye by the end of their chat? Or will VAR claim another friendship?
