Numerous interruptions and game-changing decisions in West Brom’s FA Cup fourth round win at Liverpool on Saturday brought the debate about the use of Video Assistant Referees once again to the fore.
The visitors’ success at Anfield may have finished with an entirely different scoreline had it not been for referee Craig Pawson constantly consulting the replay system.
As the delays look set to continue, these are the best of the VAR jokes from West Brom 2-3 Liverpool:

VAR is like waiting for for your GF to get ready, it always takes a little bit too long but when you see her and she looks decent you just get on with it.

VAR is the football equivalent of the bore who sits behind you in the cinema who, during a really exciting film says, "Hmm. This film is set in 1983 but they didn't actually introduce that rolling stock on the railways until 1987."
