Europe in 2020: Could Platini’s madcap proposal really work?

A Football Report at related • 1 view

By Saf Hossain

I don't know exactly why, but the heads of football's most prominent organisations – FIFA's Sepp Blatter and UEFA's Michel Platini, respectively – often give the air of a deranged, despotic dictator, bursting at the seams with outspoken controversy and just waiting for a popular revolt to remove them from power.

Goal line technology good idea or not?

OK Football Finder at related • 0 views

With the new season rapidly approaching, and managers plus players calling for goal line technology to be enforced you have to sit and think whether this is really a good idea or not?.

See referee's will probably agree with this so they can cower out of making the big decision which is, did it cross the line or not?

Football rules …… time for a change?

The rules of football evolve slowly. Very slowly. Almost at a glacial pace. But watching various sports in this lovely (if wet) summer of Olympics on our doorstep shows how other sports develop and innovate, to preserve and develop the qualities and challenges of that sport. That begs the question: what rule changes could football adopt that would improve it?

The biggest news in in global soccer is not a transfer or trade. It is that the IFAB and FIFA have approved Goal Line Technology. This should mean that when the ball crosses the line it's actually a goal. This strikingly new concept to soccer took a while to take place, but it should be starting in most leagues where they actually make money over their next season.

At times I get the sense that Sepp Blatter and his FIFA cronies genuinely feel like Biff & Co. from the Back to the Future movies, spraying out unintelligent missives to the growing cacophony clamoring for goal line technology. I can't see any possible reason to hinder its growth, but then FIFA has always been obstinately opposed to voting in favor of its own interests.

Spanish Super Cup: Real beat Barca to the title on away goals, 2-1 (4-4 agg)

Nothing went right for Barcelona in the first 30 minutes. Real were rampant running all over Barca not allowing them a whiff of the ball. It took two defensive errors to turn things around at the Bernabeu as Pepe who made his return in this leg volleyed deep into the Barca defense.

One doesn't quite know what Mascherano was thinking but he completely misjudges the trajectory and a lurking Gonzalo Higuain latches onto the ball and clear onto the goal making no mistake.

Veteran Sao Paulo 'keeper Rodrigo Ceni has made a bit of a name for himself over the years by chiming in with over 100 goals for his club, sticking away free-kicks and penalties like it ain't no thang for the best part of 23 years now.

However, Ceni managed to stick one away at the wrong end with terrific panache against Nautico in the Campeanato on Wednesday night coming to punch a corner clear, only to see the ball ricochet off his triangular knuckles at an almost physics-defying angle and then loop up and down over the heads of three hapless Sao Paulo defenders left agog on the goal-line.
