If the VAR is going to slow it down then it's not a good thing but if it can be introduced gradually, smoothly and fluidly, then it is.
We've had goal-line technology that kicked off with no problem so hopefully the VAR will be like that.” Murray’s celebration against his former club, who he left Brighton to join on a free in 2011, was a muted one as he promised, exactly the same as when he scored for Palace at the same venue shortly after joining them.
The Video Assistant Referee got its first test of competitive English football on Monday night during Brighton’s 2-1 win over Crystal Palace, but it has left some players still unconvinced.
Referee Andre Marriner didn’t need to call on the VAR until the final minutes when former Eagles striker Glenn Murray stole in at the far post to bundle over the winner, and his first goal against his former club since leaving two-and-a-half years ago.
But at the same time is part of life in football that people make mistakes. One incident has cost us but that is not down to the referee.” Goalscorer Murray, meanwhile, was convinced it didn’t hit his arm. "I didn't know what it touched but it didn't touch my arm so I knew there was no question on that but obviously the assistant VAR was in the referee’s ear telling him that it was all legit.

Especially with the brand of the Premier League, with its physicality and speed; that's what the world likes to see.

“I don't take any enjoyment scoring against my ex-employers as I didn't when I scored against Brighton [for Palace] and it's just to be in the next round of the cup. I had a great time up there and both have been very successful periods for me.Some Palace players protested to the match official but after a short wait and a message in his ear from the man with the cameras at the side of the pitch he confirmed the goal.After the game James Mc Arthur admitted the experience had left more questions than answers. When it is so close like that you need to take your time to review it rather than jump to a conclusion.” Even then, though, some of Mc Arthur’s team-mates still aren’t convinced Murray didn’t use his arm to prod it home, even after seeing multiple replays.“It was probably 15 seconds we were waiting,” he said. “It is one of those on the pitch you think it is a definite handball.But when you look at it is it not as clearcut as that.More than a thousand children attend the school but many of them are rejecting the outerwear and just wearing jumpers despite plummeting temperatures.
