I used to have quite strong views about the introduction of goal-line technology in footie, but after events today, I am having to reconsider.
That Lampard shot definitely crossed the line. I could see it clearly and I was sat 6,000 miles away from Bloemfontein. (5,957.435 miles to be exact) The players could see it, the crowd could see it. The only two people who couldn’t were the ref and linesman.
It was at such a crucial moment too. That would have made it 2-2 and who knows, we could have held on for an extra-time winner, or even overcome the Germans in a penalty shootout.
And that’s why I am now definitely, absolutely, 100% against goal-line technology because there would have been just the chance that we could have gone on to put in yet another excruciating, piss-poor performance against the Argies and be even more embarrassed than we are now.
