I am not a fan of the offside VAR in its current form.

Determining a guy is off by an inch (and I'm not sold on the accuracy of the system as it is) is not what it's for.

As a defender I can say I don't want them taking away goals for an attacker being offside on what is essentially unnoticeable to the human eye in real time. It should be used to correct clearly incorrect calls that should have been spotted by the linesman (e.g., the guy was offside by a foot or more), not to determine the attackers nose was in an offside position using super-duper computer analytics.

It's a negative in the current application, imo.
