Hello, i have coursework to be handed in tomorrow for English, and for it i have to make a speech about something important to me, obviously i could only think of city so i thought why not use video technology? i have 6 points to talk about...
1st. how it would improve the game
2nd. how it works
3rd. how its used in rugby
4th. maradona vs england, world cup incedent
5th. sheff utd match other week & list ofother incedents such as totenham vs utd, (roy carrol)
6th. counter arguments
i would also like to throw somehting about city it, can anybody help me with these points and basically give me some tips and usefull things to say?
Sorry I've only just come in from 5-a-side and seen this.
If it helps I wrote a passionate argument on this that was 'stolen'(let's say) by a particular journo that now works for MCFC!
My point was rather than simply using the Rugby method(where the game can stop repeatedly) use it in a tennis type method, where 2 'challenges' per team was allowed. Either Captain or manager could use it and if they were wrong, they would lose a 'challenge'. My thinking was that so many incidents happen they would have to be careful what they chose to use a 'challenge' for. If both teams ran out, then the ref ran the game to his discretion.
In reality, incidents like Adebayor's clash with van Persie would be inconclusive(also note the game had to be stopped, therefore allowing opportunity for the incident to be looked at) BUT would force the ref and 4th Official to make a decision there and then, avoiding the cop out with Clattenburg did with the FA. We would have had the decision in front of everyone, instead of the subsequent trial by media and no 'retrospective' video decisions by the FA.
As Sgoater says you could highlight certain incidents using this method and the ref can make the correct call, instead of fans feeling injustice at games all the time. It won't take away the feeling at times, but it would be much less than it is without video replay. I also wrote as Sgoater does about the clubs' future that hinges on silly unfathomable decisions that can ultimately send a club down. It's careers, income and history that can be affected.
It's not to the say the system wouldn't have initial teething problems, but that's why they are tried and tested in other 'less' important games of football, i.e., U-19/ Women's football etc.
Anyway, Sgoater beats me to my own thesis, but I was just relaying what I wrote about 18 months back.
I wrote this way back 2009. My original piece has long since disappeared into the Web's Netherworld...
Interestingly enough Sepp 'You're Havin' a Laff' Blatter has recently decided thus...

After last night’s match #GLT is no longer an alternative but a necessity.
Ha! After once saying...
“Please do not insist on the technology, the day that the referee takes 2 captains aside to study monitors and see if something is inside the box or outside is the day the spectators will say no, we are not coming to the game.”
Now I know the idiot was taking things to the extreme, but surely as night follows day, VT will be extended to catch the things I said above... Eventually. It can't be helped as it is a natural progression.
So, people like CBlue, who argued him himself into the Stone Age will just have to get used to it just like you've gotten used to money coming into the game, to huge stadiums being built, to moving grounds, to us becoming Champs.
You may not understand it at first, but it will all feel pretty natural soon enough!
