Re: Football excitement...

It amused me the English pundits back in the studio saying "what was the assistant referee doing, he must have seen it cross the line"
Who's side are they on Shocked Shocked or is it the over-developed English sense of fair play?

I wanted to write 'Oxymoron' but not sure it's quite accurate but 'football' and 'excitement' are not two words I would ever put together  Wink

Re: Football excitement...

With that goal we're stuck between a rock and a hard place.  If it had been awarded we would have been up in arms as it was offside, if it wasn't awarded the other team are up in arms over it.  As it is, as soon as Blatter heard about it and the fact it involved England his stance on goal line technology changed to "We must have it!" compared to when England was the victim and it was "meh, it happens".  So we had 2 assistant refs missing two things, so it evens itself out.
