That's a shame. The extra refs had better be on their A-game...

Well this is one step I guess....

I'd still prefer a push for technology similar to what they use for Wimbeldon and whatnot... but it's a step... And I'm sure FIFA is miffed UEFA is taking the bold step, which makes me laugh

The board also said the issue of goal-line technology would be discussed at a meeting in October.


Didn't we hear this about this meeting?

Here's some pretty interesting reading from a refree list serve that was pointed out on BS today. It's some refs commenting on a talk from Peter Mikkelson, a retired FIFA ref and a member of the FIFA supervisory committee for referees during the World Cup.

It's pretty interesting reading. Start from the bottom up, as this is the third of a series of exchanges.
http://listserv.uri.edu/cgi-bin/wa?A2=ind1007c&L=socref-l&T=0&P=17927


Mikkelsen says that refs feel they got 96% of the goals decisions right. There were 145 goals scored, so that means they got around 6 wrong. He admits the Lampard score England got robbed of against Germany was one, and that the USA goal from Maurice Edu was wrongly called back. (Koulibali just had a brain fart by his own admission)

Any guess on the other 4?

The offsides Tevez goal must have been one...

I'm assuming Luis Fabiano's tryout for Olympic team Handball was another... And since they were dirty, I'm going to blame Dutch gamesmanship for the rest...
