Premier League hopeful on goal-line technology

Daily Echo: Premier League hopeful on goal-line technology Premier League hopeful on goal-line technology

Goal-line technology could be introduced at Saints next season, with the Premier League remaining hopeful of implementing it in time for the start of the 2013/14 campaign.

FIFA's announcement yesterday that it will introduce the technology for the first time at this year's Confederations Cup will have little bearing on the Premier League's schedule for its use in this country.

Plans have been in place since last year when the Premier League met with the two currently-licensed GLT companies, Hampshire-based firm Hawk-Eye and their rival GoalRef, to install the system at top-flight matches.

That could be as early as next season after successful tests at last December's Club World Cup in Japan.

While the Premier League is unwilling to set down an exact date for the system's first use - a tendering process between the GLT companies is still to begin - there is a desire to have it ready by August.

"The Premier League has been a long-term advocate for goal-line technology," a statement from the Premier League read.

"We have held discussions with FIFA licensed providers with a view to introducing it as soon as is practically possible."

One of the delaying factors in introducing a new system could be over the decision of which company to employ.

While both Hawk-Eye and Goal-Ref were used at the Club World Cup their co-existence was in order to test each against the other.

It is understood the Premier League would look to agree a deal with only one of the companies.

FIFA granted licenses to both last year, which prompted the Premier League to begin talks, but it is reported up to two new companies could be given the green light by April.

That could yet muddy the waters further of a Premier League decision.

In yesterday's statement FIFA welcomed tenders from "the GLT providers currently in the licensing process" as it determines who will host the technology at the Confederations Cup and World Cup.

One of the reported companies close to gaining a license is 'Cairos'.

The Premier League has long attempted to develop goal-line technology after first meeting with the Hawk-Eye developers in 2006.

The debate for goal-line technology has gathered pace since and was highlighted by Frank Lampard's 'goal' that was not given at the last World Cup against Germany.

Right, good stuff, all we have to do now is get the ball in and around the goal line between the posts and we may benefit.

This has always been a no-brainer for me. Should have been introduced donkeys years ago. The decision of "did it/didn't it" takes literally seconds and although the incidents are rare the correct decision could be worth millions of pounds and potentially silverware. Not to mention the fact that it makes the sport fairer. Mind you, good job it wasn't around in 1966...

I don't want it. I don't think it's worth tinkering with the fundamentals of game just for the 0.1% of games in which it would actually make a difference.

Also, "licence" is the noun and "license" is the verb. People who write for newspapers should really know this.

To me goal line technology is nonsense, it is was not needed to tell us that Lampard scored against Germany or that Mendes scored against Man Utd the video replay absolutely proved it.

Why don't they say that we will use tv replays available and if the evidence is inconclusive we will go with the linesmans original decision (pretty much as you would go with an umpires decision in cricket) or alternatively, if it is inconclusive the goal cannot be given.....i suspect because such a common sense approach would deny FIFA the opportunity of a back hander from the technology providers...

I'd prefer a TV replay type system - perhaps two calls allocated per game per side for certain events e.g. a disputed goal or red card or incident of violent conduct. I don't see why that would not work.

Still, short of that, goal line technology would be some improvement.

Yeah, but if you do that, you might also want him/her to look at whether the ball goes out of play, off-sides, fouls, violent conduct, handballs and anything else that referee or linesman coukld get wrong. Each incident would take time and he/she couldn't keep up with multiple incidents close together. At least technology will keep it within bounds (and within the limits of the technology).

I can only think of a few times when this would have been any use .. mainly Lampards effort against the Hun a little while back. I have also seen a few howlers ,,,, but as you say very few .. in fact a lot less than 0.1%. Luckily it wasn't around in 1966 as I suspect the Evil Eye technology may have robbed young Geoff of his hat trick.

The costs will be passed on to season ticket holders so I suppose we should be careful what we wish for.

I think one of the game's fundamental beauties is that it can be recreated in any park almost exactly as you see it on the telly. Once you start involving all this technology it makes the professional game a slightly different sport to that played by the rest of us. I think that would be a huge loss.

I also think people should just shut up and learn to live with the fact that very occasionally decisions go the wrong way. That's life.

Total waste of time and money.
2968 games a year in the top 4 Divisions and how many times would this be used?
Would be far better off having technology that would help with offences that happens a dozen times in EVERY match!
So now a player could get fouled, Ref misses it, ball is played forward to a player who is offside,Lino misses it, hand ball, they both miss it, shot on goal that could have crossed the line and you can stop play to see if it did indeed cross the line, never mind about the 4 offences before the shot was even taken!
Mind you that's FIFA & UEFA for you.

this is going to be the ruin of football. how soon after this is introduced will some managers start calling for technology to decide offsides, diving, penaltys? more and more technology will be asked for and if its there for 1 rule why not others!
people often state that technology is used in other sports, and yes it is, however in cricket india don't like or trust hawkeye and American football has cut back on the amount of times replays can be used, replays/technology was used after nearly every on field decision, and a game which is already a lengthy affair was made too long for even the yanks. even after multiple replays for different umpires the decision was sometimes still wrong.
as stret has said, the game you watch on tv or at the ground is the same game you can play yourself and that is what is great about the beautiful game.
be careful what you wish for!

That (almost).

I actually see the introduction as a good thing...the Lampard goal that wasn't should never happen again.

I do agree that we need to steer clear of making football a stop/start game. Works for cricket and tennis..not for football.

Well it will make a welcome change from settling disputes in Court, which is the shyster's preferred method,(that's if he respects the rule of law and decides to turn up, unlike last time!)
The shyster causes the disputes in the first place and then tries to wriggle out of them, with SFC paying the costs, (which ultimately falls on the happy clappies)
More power to the elbows' of Franny and Solent Interiors.
The shyster will soon find that what goes around comes around!!

On the final game of the season Saints have a perfectly good goal disallowed because the officials did not see the ball cross the line late proved by video that it did. Saints are therefore relegated. Will you be saying "that's life" then?

No, it doesn't if you are grown up and sensible. I got my mits on the FA Cup for half a second in 1976 (at Fords) after the best day of my life at Wembley, I have been there and done it, it was good, but not exactly life changing. Would I want to do it again, I am not sure, once was enough for me, but I would love it to happen to other Saints supporters in the future, but I am not getting ulcers if it doesn't happen. It is an ambition not an obsession. As you say if you can't handle it, it could make you ill. I would feel a lot worse if my Club was destroyed through greed and cheating.

We will not pay a price that we
consider to be unsustainable. PFC must be run sensibly in future; we must
never again put the club into the debt situations that it has previously
found itself in.

hi slugger

If cortesse let Saints fans buy shares would you buy some ?
Short answer .... yes .
Go on slugger get a few more saints fans and have one on the board he or she can say to cortesse we want to sign this player and that player then pompey fans will worry about saints winning something sooner than sorry years away ! .
No need for Pompey to worry about the Saints, we don't give a monkeys about you. 99% of fans haven't got a clue about signing players, leave that to the experts.

Doesn't it upset you to see two of your best ex Players scoring for AC Milan against Barca tonight, had you been honest they would probably still be at Nottarf.

ospreysaint not winning anything causes stress and illnesses due to disappointment and winning previous helps the pain yes especially myself holdding the FA CUP in NAVY DAYS in POMPEY DOCKYARD priceless !
No, it doesn't if you are grown up and sensible.

I had shares in Saints FC in the Lowe years the only thing that was good for is the AGM and being allowed to tell Rupert what I thought of him having shares does not garauntee survival, The only garauntee is having loads of honest money.

Surely the Skunts MUST have thought something was fishy(excuse the pun) about having players like those two, Diarra, Johnson, Defoe etc on their books? ? I thought it was incredibly odd at the time, so surely those closer to it were nervous? Clearly dodgy from the start to have that level of player, on massive wages ( most of the team would have got into a top ten squad, so poopey must have paid mega bucks to persuade them to drop down) with such a small support and revenue stream?

I have never doubted your fan base, look at Southsea Common after you won the Cup, that wasn't just Pompey fans, it was the whole of Hampshire that were applauding you, the question is, where are they now that you need them most? If you study our gates after relegation I think you will be surprised, how after the Lowe debacle, (the real reason for our demise), they all soon returned and have been with us ever since. We were lucky to find a Fairy Godfather, it is going to take more than that if your Club is to survive.

Personally think it's been proved getting to, and the staying in the top flight is much more difficult and a greater achievement than winning a couple of games to get a bit of silverware.
27 years last time staying in the toughest competition in footy- something you'll never achieve.

If we were to introduce goal line technology, I feel it would have to be an instantaneous decision. We saw in our match v Wigan how quickly the ball can go from one end of the pitch to the other, so if it was to take a even a few seconds, other big incidents could happen. If there was a goal up the other end in that time, would you then disallow that goal, or let both stand? Also, what if someone gets booked/injured in the time it takes to decide, would the bookings
still stand?
I don't see the comparison with Rugby. I don't avidly follow the game, so can't be fully sure of its use, but for trys, the game is then dead and a video shows whether a try is scored or not. In football, the ball is still in play, and by stopping it to view a replay you may stop the chance of a rebound or counter-attack.
The problem if it then spreads to other areas of the game is that many of the laws are subjective, what I may view as reckless, others may not.

At the time some decent Skate fans like Blue Walter and a few others queried what was happening on the News site, the were blasted by mountains of abuse from the numpties, that couldn't see the wood from the trees. These are the good guys that are trying to resurrect the Club, at least they show some realisation of the situation that they find themselves. We were fortunate in that some of our posters on here an BBC 606 opened our eyes to what was happening with our own Club and we were at least able to influence the demise of Lowe and Co. Apart from the admiration that Markus Liebherr had for Saints fans we didn't have much influence in saving the Club, that was down purely to the vision of Markus and Nicola who saw something in our Club to take a gamble, and so far it has paid off big time despite the nasty minority who still snipe at every opportunity.

It's called DELUSION!

They have little club syndrome!

They absolutely and totally believe their own ****!

They think they are a big club with the hardest, biggest support all over the world. Even though they had to cheat their way to two league titles and an FACup, that no-one wants to buy them, that they can't even raise money from their own fans, that they have had 8 measly years in top flight football in the last half century, they still don't get it! They are a p1ss-poor excuse of a football club! They would be funny if they weren't soooo sad!

OK Goaline technology, possibly a step in the right direction. But while we are about it, how about shirt pulling technology, and defenders pushing and shoving someone off the ball when they have lost all hope of getting it fairly technology. It is mind boggling that refs are allowing so much of that go in todays game. But on the subject of a dubious goaline call by a referee, here's how the technology could work. If such an incident should occur, then to keep the game flowing, a decision should not be made until the end of the game regardless of what the ref calls at the time. This would allow for officials to review the incident from all angles and display the video of their findings on the big screen, or in some cases, on a blackboard in the middle of the field. Think about the drama, right up to the end, in some games you would'nt know who won even at the final whistle, and it just might keep a few people from leaving early too. Its obvious I haven't thought this through completly, but I've also had a few beers as well.

I couldn't agree more st1Halo
But that's the core difference at the end of the day.
They love that they won the league in the 40's, and a couple of cups including the 'soiled' FA cup of a couple years ago, but don't seem to mind the fact they've only spent a tiny amount of time actually in the big time of the top league in the last half century.
I personally don't care if we don't win any cups for another 20 years if we can stay that time in the Premier. Cups in the last 15-20 years don't mean much to most teams anyway...Being in, and remaining part of, the top flight is a much bigger challenge and achievement in my mind

If there was a goal up the other end in that time, would you then disallow that goal, or let both stand? Also, what if someone gets booked/injured in the time it takes to decide, would the bookings
still stand?
I don't see the comparison with Rugby. I don't avidly follow the game, so can't be fully sure of its use, but for trys, the game is then dead and a video shows whether a try is scored or not. In football, the ball is still in play, and by stopping it to view a replay you may stop the chance of a rebound or counter-attack.
The problem if it then spreads to other areas of the game is that many of the laws are subjective, what I may view as reckless, others may not.
This. The technology that exists in rugby, cricket, tennis etc works because of the stop - start nature of those games.

I think this will turn into another "Golden Goal" situation - FIFA want to use it at the next World Cup. It will be a disaster, and throw up a cataclysm in response.

Don't get me wrong, I really hope it will put an end to dubious decisions and serious foul play, but I just can't see it going right.

What is it with you and Trophies, it is just an unhealthy obsession which has cost your Club dearly, why can you not understand that?
ospreysaint not winning anything causes stress and illnesses due to disappointment and winning previous helps the pain yes especially myself holdding the FA CUP in NAVY DAYS in POMPEY DOCKYARD priceless !
No, it doesn't if you are grown up and sensible. I got my mits on the FA Cup for half a second in 1976 (at Fords) after the best day of my life at Wembley, I have been there and done it, it was good, but not exactly life changing. Would I want to do it again, I am not sure, once was enough for me, but I would love it to happen to other Saints supporters in the future, but I am not getting ulcers if it doesn't happen. It is an ambition not an obsession. As you say if you can't handle it, it could make you ill. I would feel a lot worse if my Club was destroyed through greed and cheating.
Respect as you were in lower league div 2 and won cup and you got what a real fan deserve glad for you sadly both Saints and pompey lost fans from previous relegation from premier the premier missing i call them we could do wth them now !
Reading between the lines a bit, I get the impression that the PKF are looking for an out way to renage on the PST

I don't want it. I don't think it's worth tinkering with the fundamentals of game just for the 0.1% of games in which it would actually make a difference.

Also, "licence" is the noun and "license" is the verb. People who write for newspapers should really know this.
Blah blah blah who gives a flying fig about nouns and verbs? You have a very sad life!
I do. Well spotted Retford and good advise, clearly the DE reporters need to practice their spelling a bit more :)

Goal-line technology? Can't agree with you there, Retford. Anything which can make things fairer and reduce 'human error' (and which doesn't impact on the flow of the game) has to be an improvement.
