Sorry not a coaching post but as this subject keeps raising its ugly head i thought i would give my opinion from a coaches, supporters and lover of the games point of view.
In reference to the recent debate of technology stemming from QPR's disallowed goal at the weekend.
As yet there doesnt actually seem a sensible answer to the question "why do we need this"
Not once do the officials get scrutinised yet how come some officials spot and give or dissallow goals correctly but in the one at most situations that arises during a season where they get it wrong the whole face of the game needs to change??
Comparing football to rugby and cricket in a sense that technology works for them illustrates a massive misunderstanding of our game in comparison to those sports. Cricket does not flow like football neither does rugby so the disruption of checking replays etc has no bearing on the game.
What happens if on the replay a foul is spotted in the build up is the goal forgotten and a free kick awarded?? What about QPR's offside goal in the same match should there not be a replay for that?? Then we go into the realm of where will it end.
Be very careful what we wish for here as this could completely change the face of our game.
As far as "so much is at stake and this could cost a manager a job or a team a trophy" So could a defensive mistake so why dont we get rid of defenders and just use cameras instead!!!
