    It depends on how it's implemented.

    Take the Utd vs Arse game from a few weeks ago. You have some pundits saying penalty on Valencia. Some saying not.

    It'll never be perfect. Goal line is great because it's instant. Once you start, where do you draw the line?

    Refs need the help, but I really don't want the game to be slowed down anymore.

    What other sports are? Cricket, rugby, tennis are all more advanced at the top?

    Good thing

    I hope they implement it eventually for diving pulling pushing so we can get all the cheats out of the game

    Finally get rid of Smalling then.....Guy hugs everyone in the box whilst side on to a corner not looking at the ball

    This. Decisions in football are so subjective for this to be able to work properly. The only benefit will be to cut out any absolute howlers by referees.

    It's different to cricket/Tennis and also Goal-line technology where decisions are clear cut.

    Look at the Rugby. It works very well in it even when there's a lot of doubt whether a ball is grounded or not, the various angles usually clear things up

    Agreed. My thing is I don't like the interruption of play. It already takes too long in the NFL and NBA to come up with decisions and things like that can kill momentum. I think some things should be left to "in the moment".

    That's a great example, because in my eyes the intent was there to trip Valencia as he through his arm across Valencias legs as he was following down, contact was made, but arguably not enough to actually bring him down. but the contact and intent should be enough.

    And then there's many cases of a foul being committed inside the box, but because the player doesn't fall, the ref ignores it.

    So does pretty much every other CB in the game. Just saying. They are all hugging, grabbing, etc.

    I'm a United fan and Smalling is the biggest culprit! It's my pet hate

    People always say offsides too. But that's not possible.

    For goals that are scored at close range, that's fine. But if it's the pass and the player is 30 yards from goal, then what?

    Football is still living in the dark ages with so many games being decided by referees which then snowballs to league titles and cups being won on dodgy decisions. Obscene how its taking this long to properly implement technology to aid fair results on a consistent basis

    What should I argue about with my mates then? :D

    Football is such a subjective topic, I don´t know if taking everything we argue about out of the game really makes it better. I´m all up for a test, but I fear that they won´t remove it anymore even if it turns out to be a bad idea.

    The human-error factor has to be kept to a minimum with so much at stake in some games. A World Cup or Champions League final being decided by a referee error can be a disaster

    Long overdue, should be easily implemented without slowing games as well.

    99% of decisions are made easily from a video replay while knowing the rules.

    I did a paper on this in school. 100% it should be implemented. I used the technology at the 2006 world cup and found that the ref who stands at the sideline can have a table and have 6 different views of an incident within 6 seconds. technology is probably better now.

    The fools that say interrupts or slows down the game are completely ignoring the fact that the players almost 100% of the time are lying on the ground for more than six seconds because of the pain or faking.

    This also improves the quality of the game because divers could then face more yellow cards and would need to stop faking injuries and such.

    this leads to more players fighting hard to win or keep the ball and not just collapsing at first touch from someone else. the cleaner the sport becomes then the more fair the game becomes. this also massively fights corruption in the game because televising the 6 replays will have the world judging the refs decisions.

    time is actually saved in the long run with this technology.

    Yeah if it does get implemented I think that's the best way. The official between the coach should have a table easily available to quickly check the replays and relay decision to the center ref.

    yes and it literally could get the accurate call to the ref while the person is still on the ground complaining. momentum wont be affected and would actually be improved.

    Yeah if that's the case then it wouldn't be so bad. As long as it doesn't end up like the NFL and NBA where they are "under the hood" for like 3+ minutes.

    The thing that would annoy me as the article mentions penalty decisions, red cards, etc etc etc. like those moments where the ref says go play on for fouls inside the box because he didn't see anything, he would now have to stop the game to decide whether he's right or not.

    Nope. Continue play. Sideline says was penalty and bring back for penalty. What happens is the correct call will go for review on the sideline while play continues.

    But the , lets say the defending team counters and gets on a breakaway. Then what? Stop a potential goal scoring opportunity to call back play 20-30 seconds after the fact? What if they actually score? Do you take away the goal? These decisions aren't going to get made any sooner than that with if replay is involved.

    no. Not having these long stoppages is what makes football great. You don't want bad calls, hire better refs simple really. The thing about this, is that these decisions always come down to one thing. Money, they want to be able to implement commercials in big games like Champion league finals and world cup finals. so this where this comes into play. The new fifa president is making all sorts of changes, I miss blatter alrdy. Atleast he made his money and didn't try and ruin the game.

    I'm a football referee and video replays would make my life infinitely easier.

    From a football fan's perspective, I think it will ruin the game. It cannot be implemented the way people want to see it.

    Surprisingly, even when a room full of senior referees are shown a video clip, there can still be disagreement with the decision and the sanction.

    Video replays have the potential to disrupt games and simply change 'contention' from the original decision to the reviewed decision. Cricket, rugby, NBA, NFL are completely different sports with natural stoppages in play. Football by its nature is very different.

    Let teams have a few reviews, where the 4th official can watch videos to make the correct decision. Only issue is it would be hard to implement in every division.
