Arsenal will be stunned by the Premier League announcement following Mikel Arteta’s rage that no transfer can alleviate.

Mikel Arteta’s rage over dropped points in the title fight will be unabated, since the Premier League has decided not to implement semi-automatic offside technology.

The decision not to use semi-automatic offside technology (SAOT) in the Premier League next season is understandably frustrating. Instead, it was decided that four additional VAR cameras would be installed at each top-tier stadium.

In short, if the SAOT had been present at the game between Arsenal and Brentford, where Ivan Toney equalized due to an error by Lee Mason – an error that would lead to his dismissal – this would not have happened. The same can be said for Brighton, Liverpool, and Wolves.

The Premier League claims that because technology will improve so quickly in the short term, integrating it now is simply not worth it. It may appear naive to assume that an organization as affluent as the Premier League should undoubtedly be doing all possible to raise the standard of the game as soon as possible.

additional needs to be done to prevent additional apologies from PGMOL head Howard Webb like this after a weekend in which both the Gunners and Brighton had goals erroneously awarded and ruled out: “PGMOL can confirm that its Chief Refereeing Officer Howard Webb has contacted both Arsenal and Brighton & Hove Albion to acknowledge and explain the significant errors in the VAR process that occurred in their respective Premier League matches on Saturday.”

“Both incidents, which were due to human error and related to the analysis of offside situations, are being thoroughly reviewed by PGMOL.”

Who knows what might have happened if Brentford’s goal had been correctly called out and Arsenal had gone on to win with a one-goal lead. Given that the Gunners’ next game was against the defending champions Manchester City, it may have changed the complexion of the title battle.

The good news is that something is being done, and the four cameras will presumably reduce errors. However, the SAOT system completely removes them.

There are far too many refereeing errors in the “best league in the world,” as the assertion goes. However, La Liga, as well as UEFA and FIFA, have already brought SAOT on board.

On the surface, the installation of additional cameras appears to be a step in the right direction, but when it comes to the efficiency of decision-making for offside rulings, the Premier League has been surpassed by other leagues and organizations. In summary, fans will have to wait a little longer for these problems to be corrected.
