Howard Webb has most recently been quoted in an article called I would want VAR as a World Cup referee. Howard Webb said, “If I was one of the referees going to a big worldwide tournament like the World Cup, with the spotlight of the global media, would I want video review in my games? Absolutely, yes I would. Would I rather go in with the safety net of having a VAR in place rather than having nobody there? Absolutely, I would. They're dealing with a global workforce from lots of different countries with different cultures and different languages, so it does present some other challenges that maybe we [in MLS] don't face in the same way.”. Howard Webb has been quoted a grand total of 19 times in 8 articles.

They need to be able to smell it. You have to have the instinct to know what is and what's not going to be expected to be reviewed.feedback

May 22 2017 - Feminism

We have some good female officials in England. More and more are coming through and if they have the ability it shouldn't make any difference if they are male or female.feedback

It's all about communication and you need to clarify what you are talking about. You just adapt to the audience really - the language of football is the same but some words are different and you need to adjust sometimes. When it became apparent that I was coming to the US, Mark got in touch with me and told me he was interested in challenging himself and broadening his horizons. He asked me about the football scene in Saudi and I was able to assist in helping make contact with people over there and left it to them.feedback

He has made a measured judgment about his long-term future. It seems unlikely that he will be at the World Cup but you never know.feedback

The amount of work and time and effort that we've put in the project here in MLS is quite extensive - so clearly we believe in it - and therefore to hear that Fifa hold the same view is reassuring for us and a positive step. I went to Atlanta on Sunday and was walking outside from the back of one stand to another and through the crowds and not many people turned their heads when I went past. Occasionally I'll be walking along [in New York City] and a taxi driver will wind his window down and shout 'Hey ref' or something like that.feedback

It is a huge change in terms of the tools available to the officiating team to avoid clear and obvious errors and it appealed to me to be part of the implementation of that here and also the training of the guys as well. I formed an opinion some years ago that it was worth exploring. Every time there was a mistake in a key match, the conversation always turned to why did we not have some form of assistance, like technology whereby we can avoid these mistakes.feedback

May 03 2017 - World Cup

I cast my mind back to the Thierry Henry handball in 2009 [for France against the Republic of Ireland in a World Cup qualification play-off]. Without experimenting and exploring we were never going to take the conversation forward. At least by putting this trial in place we can make a genuine assessment in terms of how this affects the game. We're not the only ones doing but I'm hopeful that here in MLS we'll be as well prepared as anyone else when it goes live.feedback

I think really just protecting the players from foul play, from brutal play or violent play, protecting the school of skillful players and also protecting the image of the game as well. The World Cup is the foremost tournament in world football of course and it's one that so many people around the world will see.feedback
