Wenger gives green light to goal line technology


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has given the nod and his blessing for the use of goal line technology in the Premier League  starting next season.

FA general secretary Alex Horne confirmed the possibility of using it yesterday and Arsenal boss Wenger has lent his support to the idea.

When asked when the FA should introduce the technology, the Frenchman said: “The sooner, the better for me.

“The sooner they go further, the better. I have always been a big fan of it and given it every support.

“There are no doubts for me. The concern of course is that the technology can make mistakes but still statistically we will improve a lot.

“Overall we all have memories of when this technology would stop an injustice, so let’s go for it — as quickly as possible.” See original here

So there we have it. If this was used in the last World Cup who knows what would have happened when England played Germany. Frank Lampard’s clear goal would have stood and it might have made all the difference.
