    If modern technology took over decisions,wouldn’t conversation over a pint in the pub after the game be extinct.as far as im concerned it’s all part of the game bad decision making plus a talking point.that’s my angle on it ,different i know.

      Disagree completely Giddy, I think this is exactly what is needed in the sport. Probably just a generation clash eh?

      It also means big teams like Chelsea, utd etc can’t bully tge refs into giving big decisions in their favour all the time. Notice tge difference now moyes can’t get big decisions like fergie did means it’d have to win a game without cheating

        I agree with bringing in technology i just stated what might happen if brought in,that’s why i said from a different angle.sooner the better imo reffing atm is shambolic.

    No matter how much technology is introduced it won;t make a spot of difference to Villa as long as we have Loony Lamberk as manager.

    Technology…other than goaline…no fucking way! There will be fuck all to discuss. Its already getting so fucking boring when the only thing that makes a decent team is money. What the fuck next…challenging every fucking decision. Honesty and discretion and bad decisions from referees is part of what makes football great. Technology will be the death of football. What next….?

    I reckon cheating (for example diving) should be punishable after a match, and if you bite someone you get your teeth removed without anaesthetic.

    Don’t see how technology will be the death of football there will still be talkin points for sure, look at American football tennis rugby all hav this technology but i don’t tink any fan has stopped watching cause now they have nothin to talk about! It will be great for the game, this excuse of slowing the game down is bollox, everytime the ref makes a call he has to listen to players complaining for 2 mins that he got it wrong, players shouting and trying to intimidate the ref to changing their mind will be gone just like it has stopped wit goalline technology now and the game is faster because of it, technology is needed in football for the sake of fairness if nothing else.

    But football is a continuous flowing game unlike tennis and American football

    I agree with goal line tech as its quick and won’t disrupt the flow of the game so much but not for every decision a referee has to make. Can you imagine how long it would have taken to go through all the angles of the Fulham penalty before they came across THE ONE that made it look like a bad decision????

    First it starts with goal line, then penalties, then because someone scored from a corner that shouldn’t have been that it will be next, then throw ins……then offsides….and on and on and on………… .

    We will still be watching the game come Monday morning and have nowt to debate!!!!!

      Completely agree with Helenius! about 18 months ago Football Focus done an article where 2 ex referees and 2 ex players were shown 8 examples of ‘contentious decisions’. These involved…penalties, red and yellow cards,diving and last man scenarios. After 10 mins (yes that long)… The four people on the panel only agreed on 1, yes 1 decision unaminously….I rest my case…it simply does NOT and CANNOT work in football as we know it….the game will simply NOT be the same. Too much technology will kil football. Goaline technology is as far as it should go IMO.

        Does that not also happen in the game of today, even now you might see it different than me on a takle or even goaline incidents, OK I will go with goaline being a must but let’s face it some refs are bias to teams .

      Is football really a continues free flowing game? How many times have we seen a ref surrounded by players over a pen call or sending off and it takes 1-3 mins to sort it out which usually are never added on at the end of the match unless man u are losing! And i think you are missing the point a bit, each team would only have 3 challenges so i don’t see them using it at every corner debate or silly yellow card, if they want to waste it on that its their choice but im sure they would be saved for pen decisions and offsides which is seriously needed because mistakes are being made every game with offsides compared to how many goal line decisions need to be made.

        Kerry…did you read what I wrote above…its conclusive evidence that technology can do very ittle to improve the game. Quite the opposite if you read what I said!

          Langford im not sure who they used as guinea pigs mate but maybe they weren’t the brightest fireworks in the box because rugby both codes and cricket to me works ultra quick so why should football be anymore complecated mate,rugby union you’ve got hands & bodies everywhere.i hope we’re not going to have a domestic over this.lol

            Giddy…they were 2 ex PL referees and 2 ex PL players. If they can only get one decision right out of 8 after 10 mins how is it ever going to work? Look how many people debated our penalty incidents on Sunday and against Arsenal. The arguments are still going on. Sky sports on Monday also had several people discussing it…this suggests that the ultimate decision made will still NOT be right more than about 4 times out of 10 (if your lucky)…and thats a generous estimation on the evidence I have seen. And just to remind you, that is after 10 mins of discussion! so whats the point?

            Strange very strange how long it took,other sports they reverse & forward at different angles then come to the decision.surely they must of just had slow motion.did they have numerous angles & could stop play?just a thought mate.as far as im concerned rugby union is alot more complicated.

            I have no idea why mate. Its all about opinions mate, with discretion thrown in (not to mention bias)…… So I still say whats the point? and BTW I have watched loads of Rugby matches where the commentator and co commentator (both ex pro internationals) still argued the toss with the ultimate decision maker!
            No domestic lol…you drunken old git! 🙂

            Sorry Langfordvilla but whose to say them refs are protecting jobs for the boys, as Giddy says if it works for other sports why not football, I’m not advocating whole of the game , but pens and goal lines only and let’s have judicater’s also its a bussines and people are making money out of a sport. Your sport and mine.

        Lol mate i have seen many heated debates over rugger decisions,we’ll agree to disagree.strange i haven’t had a drink for 48hrs what the fucks wrong with me.

          No drink for 48 hours……not too sure I believe that lol…perhaps thats why you are arguing with your loved one :)… and BTW i watched a rugby game about two weeks ago where it took AT LEAST 3 minutes to make a decision on a relatively simple try debate.
          Thats the last word from me on this subject….I’m too busy trying to find someone that can confirm that you are sober :)…….god, I wish I had the technology…now fuck off and get pissed…I dont like it when your sober cos you talk bollox 🙂

        Compared to American Football and cricket, yes, it is as free flowing as it gets..!!! And bringing in a 3 challenge rule is absurd – this is football.

        It works in other sports because they are continuously stop start.

        Agree another thing I dont get is why dosnt tge clock stop for subs and injuries etc like rugby. This injury time is the biggest load of bollox going.

    Over the years let’s face it been some extremely funny decisions from refs, if its coming that technology moves in let’s do what cricket does, 3 calls to 4th umpire but only on goal line or penalty calls. Other than that let the game flow, what I’d like to know is why don’t the FA let paying fans know the refs performance’s, up till now Ive never seen a ref that’s been relegated made public to the fans.
