Posted on 24 Oct, 2012, by in Soccer

With the news that GoalRef and Hawk-Eye have signed licence agreements with FIFA to install goal-line technology systems worldwide, it seems like we’re taking a step forward from the dark days of the 2000’s and into a futuristic world, where Frank Lampard goals an ghost goals might suddenly be called the right way.

Goal Line Technology – Everton & Victor Anichebe get Robbed

Posted on 18 Sep, 2012, by in Soccer

Once again, the need for goal line technology and not just human eyes of referees and linesmen was proven, this time at Goodison Park. Everton failed to beat Newcastle (2-2), having two perfectly fine goals, one by Marouane Fellaini (for an offside that wasn’t there), the other by Victor Anichebe (ball did cross the line), disallowed or simply go unnoticed.

Goal Line Technology Controversy Finally Hits Euro 2012

Posted on 20 Jun, 2012, by in Soccer

John Terry made the incredible save, knocking the ball away from the goal, denying Marko Devic the goal. The replay clearly showed it was yet another ‘Ghost Goal’ with a linesman, a referee and the fifth official standing right next to the goal. They all missed it. They also missed the fact that Artem Milveskiy was offside during the buildup. More

Euro 2012 – Day 12 Summary (England vs Ukraine, Sweden vs France)

Posted on 19 Jun, 2012, by in Soccer

Euro 2012 took the final step of the group stage with a lot of drama, as England hanged on to an undeserved 1-0 lead after Wayne Rooney scored on his tournament debut while John Terry saved a goal that would have been allowed if we had goal line technology. Meanwhile, Sweden got a meaningless win, 2-0 over France, that just meant the French head into the next stage with more problems than they thought. More

Goal Line Technology Needed – FA Cup Final Edition (Liverpool vs Chelsea)

Posted on 5 May, 2012, by in Soccer

Ramires struck early, Drogba seemed to put the game away early in the second half, Andy Carroll brought a lot of hope with his goal, but that’s where it stopped. Carroll may or may have not scored a ghost goal that Phil Dowd didn’t allow, and Chlesea hung on to win the FA Cup with a 2-1 win. More

Chelsea Humiliate Tottenham; Goal Line Technology Was Needed Again

Posted on 15 Apr, 2012, by in Soccer

Chelsea did crush Tottenham 5-1, so there’s no doubt about who was the better team in the London fight to see who gets to meet Liverpool in the FA Cup Final. But English football this season is filled with refereeing controverseyes, and the FA Cup Semi Final couldn’t be any different. This time? A phantom goal by Chelsea, which could have been denied if only we’d have goal line technology. More

Robinho and Milan Get Screwed Again By Lack of Goal Line Technology

Posted on 1 Apr, 2012, by in Soccer

Robinho surely scored, but from where the referee was located, it was hard to tell. AC Milan should have won against Catania, but the linesman couldn’t identify, or just didn’t have the guts to say anything, regarding the ball that crossed the line. The game went on, ended in a 1-1 draw with Catania, and the title race is wide open again thanks to another case of Milan being on the wrong end of football’s primitiveness. More

QPR & Clint Hill Next Victims of No Goal Line Technology

Posted on 11 Mar, 2012, by in Soccer

QPR losing at Bolton 2-1 didn’t just make Premier League survival much more complicated. They have every right to feel aggrieved by the scoreline, not just because of being the better team through the 90 minutes, but because of Clint Hill scoring a goal in the 19th minute, which wasn’t recognized by Martin Atkinson or his linesman, resulting in yet another example of why we need goal line technology.

Carlos Vela and Another Example of Why we Need Goal Line Technology

Posted on 5 Mar, 2012, by in Soccer

Carlos Vela scored a goal, but Gorka Iraizoz was quick enough to pull it out of the goal and Real Sociedad were left with 0, as Athletic Bilbao won the Basque derby, with a little bit of help from the referee and his assistant who proved once again how badly football needs goal line technology and replays to assist us.

Muntari “Goal” Another Example Of Why We Must Have Goal Line Technology

Posted on 26 Feb, 2012, by in Soccer

Sulley Muntari scored a goal that should have put AC Milan up 2-0 over Juventus, but while he was already celebrating the game continued without him, with the referee, shockingly, not seeing that the ball clearly went beyond the goal line, giving us another reason to dream of goal line technology finally being used.
