By that, I mean plays like todays where it was a clear goal and called off sides, will still be like this. They will only review and overturn if they initially call it a goal, then come back and wave it off for off sides.

    The game will already be stopped for celebration, and they can just spot kick the ball for the offsides or what have you. Todays decision will still be made the same way if they have review technology.

    Today Clattenberg (and his linesmen) made several shocking calls which totally changed the shape of the game. Torres was sent off for diving when Chelsea were already down to 10 men, despite the fact Evans made contact with him, and Hernandez's winner was clearly offside.

    I don't actually believe that referees intentionally help Man Utd win games, but there are days (like today) when they make it really, really hard not to think about it

    Today has being 2 good games but Both Tragic Referring in both.
    Absolutely,certainly legitimate talking point,******* scum

    It adds 30 seconds, which is sometimes the average amount of time for a free-kick near the edge of the box, a corner, or even a throw in sometimes.

    AF on Torres' red:

    “Did he intend to dive? He didn’t choose to go on [running],” he told Sky Sports.

    “I think Jonny may have just caught him a little bit, but you can either carry on running, which he could have done, but he chose to go down.

    “He could have carried on and scored - that’s what I don’t understand. I would never have missed that chance to go through. I would have taken it anytime.

    “I would never have gone down, but he did go down and that’s the issue, and he’s already been booked, so it’s his own fault.”
    Jaap Stam on AF's tactics:

    "It's got to the stage where he has even told us: 'Don't try and stay on your feet if you're in the box and get a slight kick," Stam revealed in his autobiography being serialised in the Mirror.

    And an awful lot of 'celebrations' take a full minute before a game re-starts

    Its ridiculous to say there isn't enough time for video technology.

    Not to mention the time that would be saved because people wouldn't dive and waste time when there was no contact, because there would be stiff retrospective punishment.

    Great post. That's the kind of man he is. At least Moyes was honest after the game. Ferguson thinks if he denies the bias and unfairness then nobody will remember it.

    What a load of fatuous waffle, sidesteps the point that Evans caught him and concentrates solely on the fact that he could have stayed on his feet. Whether he could or not doesn't alter the fact that he got caught and it should have been a free kick to Chelsea.

    It is a few seasons ago now but Clattenburg gave some rather dubious decisions to us in a derby match that we won. So I don't think our refs are necessarily biased but they are influenced by the crowd and reactions (or over reactions) of players and the general media view of a player's behaviour to some extent.

    Two exciting games were ruined by poor decisions by the respective referees today and don't forget Arsenal's goal yesterday as well. There are plenty of arguments about the speed and flow of the game being affected if we introduce video technology as part of the game. And, occasionally, video replays are still inconclusive. But in the main they will provide an aid to officials

    I say it's time to at least give it a full test in a tournament and then we can all see how it impacts the game.

    Without it we'll continue to see games spoiled because the officials are not given any help whilst the millions watching on TV can see whether they were right or wrong within seconds (in the main).

    It doesn't have to add 30 seconds... this is one of the biggest money spinners in entertainment... we could invest a tiny bit of that into a really fancy video replay room where several well trained officials can instantly see anything from any angle (just like we can on TV) and instantly communicate the correct decision to the ref. It could be done in 2-3 seconds sometimes, 5 seconds mostly, 10 seconds tops. Decisions often take a few seconds anyway... sometimes they take 30 seconds to think about what card to give, and consult with linesmen and such. It's hardly going to add any time but it's going to make the game transparent and fair. IF that's what they want.

    Interruption to the flow of the game shouldn't be an issue for you!



    I'm only really advocating video tech for decisions like we've seen today and penalty incidents. If we had video tech in the game, the 3 major offside incidents we've seen this weekend would all have been called correctly.

    Sure. My point is that the maximum it will add is 30 seconds, and that itself is almost imperceptible when seeing the interruptions within games we already have. Anyway, started a thread regarding it, so I feel like I'm repeating myself a bit too much today.

    It needs to be repeated until it's implemented, you're absolutely right.

    Yes there is.

    If there is a bias at work, be it deliberate or unconscious, the statistics will demonstrate it.

    My concern is that there is a guy on here who posted links to a blog with some interesting stats on it. He effectively predicted Clattenburgh's 'leaning'. I'd mentally written him off as a rant - but now? May be he has something.

    His premise is that over the years the practise of not antagonising managers who complain against refs (by not allocating them to their matches) has gradually turned in to something that refs recognise as being unwise to give decisions that don't help united - if they want a top flight refs Carree.

    My guess is no one, and so there will be a utd chairman on the board at the F.A for a long time to come and these kind of results will continue to come about because of scared refs.

    I long for the day one of them has enough balls to say 'right that's it' and spills the beans about all the rubbish that we know goes on behind the scenes.....Only then will we get football back.
    The billionaire owners surely can do this. Their investments is being shred into pieces through incompetence and biased officials
