Arsenal Arsenal at related • 0 views

I have read countless commentaries, posts, even complete blogs dedicated to finding a way to ¨fix¨ what is ¨wrong¨ with modern Football. Apparently many of the proposed solutions all have one thing in common and that is their requirement to either change or adapt the Laws of the Game in order to ¨improve¨ the likelihood of fairness and ¨eliminate¨ the hazards of referee incompetence,bias or poor form and to promote a more ¨level¨playing field.

FC Barcelona dominated play but had no goals to show for it after a scoreless first half against Real Madrid, but they broke through in the second half with three straight goals to erase a Cristiano Ronaldo opener and take control of the Spanish Super Cup series.

There was nothing on paper that said the Portland Timbers couldn't walk into the Home Depot Center on Sunday and come back home with +3 points in their pockets against the LA Galaxy and, true enough, in the first half they showed that they could make meaningful chances in the run of play and control the ball.

The match started out with the USA being the more attacking side and Canada sitting back defensively. Through the first 10 minutes, Canada rarely had possession in the USA's end and usually relied on playing long passes to create chances.

The USA slowly started to assert themselves as the first half neared the 15 minute mark as Edgar Castillo nearly scored on a long range shot as he volleyed a ball that dipped onto goal and forced a tough save.

Could UEFA’s bold video refereeing strategy save tournament football?

By Michael Park, writing from Scotland

England fans will groan at this statement but Ukraine's disallowed goal in the final Group D game has finally forced UEFA's hand and pushed them toward introducing goal-line technology into the game.Â

Michel Platini's footballing boffins have been working tirelessly to find a way to introduce goal-line technology that does something other than setting off a massive buzzer that electrocutes the referee and forces him to blow for a goal.

Alan Gordon has made a habit of pulling off late-game heroics to salvage valuable points for the San Jose Earthquakes. He did it again on Wednesday, only he did so in a manner that might come back to haunt him.

Gordon scored an 84th minute equalizer against the Colorado Rapids on Wednesday night, but it was what he did in the dying seconds of regulation that left the Rapids irate and the Earthquakes celebrating another late comeback.

They had eleven of them but just when it looked like this would be a long evening for the Germans, Mario Gomez was able to majestically elevate himself at the right time to put away Sami Khedira's deflected cross past Rui Patricio.

I believe that soccer leagues around the world spending millions of dollars for electronic goal-line technology that will be used only on rare occasions is NOT a good use of money at all. That money can be spent on more players, and a fraction of it can be spent hiring more referees to patrol the area at each goal.

Goal line technology needed

Colorado Soccer Now at related • 0 views

Ask Dominic Oduro if goal line technology might change the game in a good way.

On Sunday, Oduro was the latest to be denied a score because the humans officiating on the field could not keep up with a player on a breakaway and a deflected shot. While replays clearly showed that the Chicago Fire striker had netted a goal, a sliding defender's late arrival was credited with keeping the ball from crossing the line.
