Forum Home / News Discussion / FIFA Boss Blatter Demands Goal Line Technology After England Win

[This topic is LOCKED]

Posted: 20 Jun 12 18:07

Extract from Story:
Head of world football, Sepp Blatter, has finally accepted that the time is right to introduce goal-line technology (GLT) into the game following England's progress into the Euro 2012 quarter-finals last night.

It's all a matter of swings, over-head kicks and blind muppets pretending to be goal line referees!

5+ for England

5* Enjoyed reading that.

It's a funny old game!

The ball 'may' have been 'all' the way over the line but it should have been blown as off-side anyway.

We should have had a penalty awarded to us given the way Rooney's shirt was tugged in their area.

But both teams probably should have been awarded about half a dozen penalties anyway because of shirt pulling and shoving during corner kicks. Luckily for England that didn't happen because if it had then in all probability Ukraine would have scored more of them than England would have.

The nail biting comes next.
