The Premier League has instantly agreed to a West Ham demand ahead of its next meeting claims club chief Karren Brady.

West Ham remain furious with the Premier League and match officials over the use of VAR in their games.

The Hammers were denied what would likely have been three points at Nottingham Forest by a very questionable VAR call.

And the debacle at Chelsea last weekend saw West Ham robbed of a point at the death.

The decision to rule out Maxwel Cornet’s equaliser has been labelled a ‘disgrace’ and the worst VAR call since its introduction.

Pundits and fans have called for VAR to be scrapped or its use limited in the wake of the Stamford Bridge fiasco.

Hammers vice-chairman Karren Brady has been very vocal on the subject in her latest column for The Sun.

Brady is not going to let the matter be swept under the carpet and is insisting action is taken to revisit the use of VAR.

And the Premier League has instantly agreed to West Ham United’s demand ahead of its next meeting claims club chief Brady.

“At West Ham we are still angered by the VAR farce that cost us a point at Stamford Bridge last weekend,” Brady told The Sun.

“So much so that I insisted the Premier League add VAR and referee standards to their next agenda.

“But, like camouflaged soldiers capturing foreign land, that is the creeping strength of many a zoom system. And yet you can hope sport’s governing bodies will stop falling for such easy-to-apply answers.

“Which is why the Prem agreed instantly that the subject would be added on the agenda at their next meeting.

“The highest levels of football are being undermined when clubs are robbed of points by grossly inaccurate decisions.”

We can only hope those running the game see sense and limit VAR’s use and influence.

West Ham chief Brady thinks she has the answer on that front too and it makes perfect sense.
