Blatter: Goal-line technology is now a necessity

After Euro 2012 co-hosts Ukraine were denied an equaliser in their pivotal Group D clash with England the Fifa president has succumbed to pressure and admitted it is a must... (England, Euro 2012, International, UEFA Euro)

How ironic... -.-

So you say 'it's part of the game' when England get a disallowed goal from it but now you say it's a 'neccesity' when it is the other way! -.-

He really hates England :/

well if they decided to implement the hawk eye system there testing they could use one of its features to work out offside aswell.

Don't think it will happen myself, will ruin the flow of the game.

In rugby it works, play is often stopped due to the nature of the game and the referee actually has some level of respect. He decides when to call for a replay of the action and talking sh*t to the ref demanding a look at the replay will just result in you being sent off.

In football, you would have players swarming the ref squealing like lil piggies every time the ball goes near a touchline.

Totally off-topic but have you noticed when any Italian player decides hes been fouled his face automatically looks like hes been kicked in the nut sack closely followed by lightning striking them and throwing them to the ground. Most teams/players do the lightning strike thing but not the FACE OF PAIN! haha.

Bloody hell, try and be a bit more constructive Kinect! You just used 3 bubbles and added nothing to the discussion.

All you had to say was that goal line technology works by signalling to the ref via an ear piece or similar mechanism to indicate that the ball has crossed the goal line. Therefore, goal line tech won't ruin the flow of the game because the game will only be stopped when it should be stopped.

Not sure if a similar system could be used for all touchlines but perhaps hawkeye with a number of challenges per match could be implemented. Which could include the problem of diving and other situations... with a limited amount of challenges meaning players have to be sure they are correct.

Each manager should have three vetoes per match where the referee communicates with a guy who looks at the replays like in rugby. With only three vetoes, it won't affect the game that much. One veto per manager could even be enough.
