It is obvious there will be no replay.Do you bend the rules back to suit.It seems the FIFA chiefs will be debating in December wether to introduce assistant referees behind the goal lines in the world cup as they do in the U A F A League.More chance of human error,not a step in the right direction.
First of all ban all managers from the touchline and put them in the stand.
The fourth referee could then be in a
cubicle with the technology, be able to look at instant replays and give his view.The sub numbers could be flashed up on the screen in the ground .
Why not give the captains two options to question the referees decision in a match and no more.The referee could raise a card (white)? to indicate the captain has asked for a second opinion the fourth referee would give his verdict and the referee would then be guided by him.
It”s time for Platini to put down his martini.
Blatter to put down his platter,
And attend to things that matter.jim
