For spectators, the reference of VAR by the commentators is a very new part of football terminology. And after the increased use during the World Cup 2018, we wanted to create an article investigating further into what VAR actually is.
Believed to greatly improve the accuracy of referee opinions, below we will take a look into how this form of video recall is beneficial. And to review this fully, we will also discuss instances where the intervention of VAR was inconclusive or faulted.
VAR stands for Video Assistant Referees, and its main purpose is to ensure that all decisions regarding the treatment of incidents are kept fair and accurate for both sides. As the on-pitch referees often could miss a significant occurrence of an infringement of rules, or even favour one squad over another, this type of reassurance from a team of referees improves the accuracy of ref decisions.
The four main incidents where this type of recall would be needed

The transfer window might be shut until the summer, but teams across Europe will now start sending their scouting teams on missions to make sure they are finding the best available talent around the world.Every team wants a youngster in which they can develop and potentially sell-on for quadruple the amount they originally purchase them for some years down the line, and they will find those players scattered among Europe.Here are five players, all 21 and under, who are going to be in hot demand in the next 12 months:

At 29, and still at the peak of his powers, Javier Hernandez felt the time was right to return to the Premier League. After a five year stint at Manchester United which yielded 59 goals in 157 matches, and subsequent successful spells at Real Madrid and Bayer Leverkusen, Chicharito jumped at the chance to join West Ham United.
"I am very happy to join West Ham United," he explained to the club's website. "For me, the Premier League is the best league in the world and when the opportunity came, I was desperate to sign for this club.
"It was not a difficult decision. West Ham is an historic club, and very ambitious -- this summer you can see with the players signed that they are looking to have a very good season. I've had three fantastic years playing in

Although West Ham had to break their transfer record to secure Andre Ayew, paying a whopping £20.5 million, their acquisition of the Ghanaian international is money well spent and yet another statement of intent from the East London club ahead of the new season.
Following a successful first season in the Premier League with Swansea City, Ayew is the latest in the club's raft of new signings this summer, alongside Havard Nordtveit, Ashley Fletcher, Sofiane Feghouli, Gokhan Tore, Jonathan Calleri, Arthur Masuaku and Manuel Lanzini, who's now joined on a permanent deal. With West Ham moving into the prestigious Olympic Stadium, the club's ambition and exciting direction under Slaven Bilic was clearly crucial in his decision.
"The club have a lot of ambition and have a great manager," Ayew said.
"They want to become a bigger club every year and with the new stadium and a new

By scoring a scintillating hat-trick in just seven minutes and 14 seconds, in West Ham's entertaining 3-3 draw with Arsenal, Andy Carroll became the first player to notch a treble against the Gunners since Wayne Rooney back in 2011.
A fantastic achievement indeed for Carroll who's endured a frustrating, injury riddled campaign, which has seen him suffer and be debilitated by groin, hip, ankle and hamstring ailments throughout the campaign.
So by also scoring the fifth fastest Premier League hat-trick in history, and the second triple of his career, six years after his first for Newcastle United, Carroll would have certainly seen this as the perfect reward for all his perseverance

Luis Suarez has enjoyed nothing but success since making the move from Liverpool to Barcelona ahead of the 2014/15 season. In his first campaign with Barca, Suarez won the treble and was a finalist for UEFA's Best Player in Europe Award. He also got to play alongside Lionel Messi and Neymar in what many have called one of the best front threes in football history. This season, meanwhile, the Uruguayan striker is duking it out with Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo to be the La Liga's top scorer-all while hoping for a second treble in a row for Barcelona.
With all of this success, it would be easy for Suarez to call his time in the Spanish La Liga the highlight of his career. Yet, in

When it became clear towards the end of last season that West Ham United would dismiss manager Sam Allardyce ahead of the 2015/16 campaign, many warned that the decision could come back to haunt them.
Although supporters never really saw eye to eye with the current Sunderland boss, whose style of football was generally not to their taste, they could not deny that he was a steady hand and a virtual guarantee of Premier League survival. With the Olympic Stadium becoming West Ham's home from 2016/17 onwards, parting company with Allardyce was interpreted by some as an unnecessary risk to West Ham's status as a top flight outfit.
Such concerns were legitimate at the time, but the Hammers' accomplishments since then show that replacing Allardyce with Slaven Bilic was a terrific move. Under the guidance of the club's popular former player, West Ham are one win away from the FA Cup semi-finals
