Well, whilst there may be some doubters, I think we can all agree how useful it would have been at Loftus Road yesterday afternoon.

Leeds United ??? against Queens Park Rangers, but it was the first goal of the game that had a lot of people talking.

In the 20th minute with the scores level, the home side had a free-kick just outside the area, and after Eberechi Eze’s shot was deflected off Luke Ayling, it struck both his body and his hand twice before Nahki Wells stroked the ball into an empty net and give the home side the lead.

And given that there is no VAR in place this campaign, there was no way for the decision to be overturned, and it was something that left the Leeds United fans on social media furious. Not only did they feel aggrieved because this decision alone went against them, but some used it as a microcosm of just how bad officiating is in this division, particularly against them.

Are you a fan of VAR?

Yes

Yes

No

No

I wonder if a goal like that will be used as a catalyst for bringing VAR into the EFL in the future?
