Lots of Blues fans have once again been discussing the standard of officiating in the Championship.

I wonder if Blues fans are going to start changing their tune on this sometime in the future.

Last week the sentiment was that Blues fans weren’t too keen on bringing in V.A.R despite head coach Pep Clotet coming out vehemently in favour of doing so after a controversial decision against Millwall last week denied Birmingham a chance to get all three points.

And after the game against Q.P.R on Saturday, the Spaniard doubled down on his comments. With the Blues having a very late penalty claim turned down by the referee turned down, Clotet once again criticised the officials and the lack of technology to help them make the right decision:

“I think it was a penalty at the end which again wasn’t awarded to us. Unfortunately we are used to that now, that needs to change.”

Are you a fan of V.A.R?

Yes

Yes

No

No

And his words seemed to have a bit of a galvanising effect on certain sections of the fanbase, as many of them rallied round Clotet and his fighting talk, with some of them using it as a stick to beat the EFL with.

Maybe the tide is starting to turn and fans might start becoming fans of V.A.R after all?
