Is the time for change in the soccer arrived?


Encrypted to try Heurelho Gomes and to prevent that Frank Lampard shot has crawling over the Linie.Ereignisse in England and Spain in recent weeks once again shown that football, need technology to their credibility with fans, keep in the present and in the future.

In the English Premier League managed at the weekend, Chelsea, their title hope against Tottenham thanks to a goal, which was not and another one that was the was in an offside position.

Meanwhile in the Champions League semi-final between Real Madrid and Barcelona was damaged, if wrongly sent the match referee from real money players, after he not have contact with his opponent.

How we do know the referee the wrong decisions taken? Now, we had the luxury of just countless replays from different angles on television. It didn't take long for us to know what had happened and what the officials don't see.

Let's start with what at the Stamford Bridge leaked last Saturday in the match between Chelsea and spurs.

The Blues were 0-1-defeat, when a shot was spilled by Frank Lampard from Heurelho Gomes.

The ball trickled towards goal but was saved by the Brazilian keeper offered on the line. This was clearly all viewers seconds.

However went to the referee and his assistants, it. Chelsea were again on a goal, which was not equal.

Salomon Kalou hit in the second half, with the game a draw direction, the back side of the network for the home page.

Again, within seconds spectators to the game on TV saw that the international ivory was coast in an offside position, when he beat Gomes.

The officials do not have the benefit of replay and validates the target. End of the game. Chelsea beat spurs and only three points moved League leaders Manchester United.

Now don't get me wrong. I am not in any way that suggests that Chelsea were helped intentionally by referee in this game.

What I am saying is that the officials made two honest mistakes, as they often do in important games. Is the OK? No No more.

Must something be done, so the fans feeling like they in and week out cheated will be to stop.

I'll get in the solutions later, but first, let me is another problem in football these days.

In Santiago Bernabeu, Real Madrid 2-0 defeat last Wednesday, Barcelona deservedly.

There is no doubt that PEP Guardiola team was better and I not in the question am.

But Barca's job easier is when Real Madrid's Pepe sent the referee. The Portuguese international a red card received, after giving a challenge on Dani Alves.

The Brazilian defender rolled around on the ground as he fired at was, and the official Pepe gave his marching orders.

It was the wrong decision. Replays showed that the real player not contact with Alves and do not foul should have been awarded.

If you watched the game on television, I'm sure you were disappointed. An intense, hard battle had been tainted.

Barcelona went on to win with two goals from Leo Messi as impartial fan, I stayed with a bitter taste in the mouth.

Now the question is not here, who benefited from the decision and who is not. In contrast to Jose Mourinho alleged I think not, there are dark forces behind the scenes of Barcelona in the Champions League win help work.

What I believe with all my body, mind and soul, is that we need transparency in all decisions made by referees in the world's top competitions.

So what needs to be done?

First of all all important should accept continental competitions goal line technology starts next season.

FIFA and UEFA have enough money in the Bank, that their play a better game to invest.

I have spoken with FIFA President Sepp Blatter various times about this issue and he has admitted that there are various systems that work.

How to choose an and start it. There are just too much at stake for the players, coaches and teams for the wrong goal decisions in and week out.

Secondly, instant TV of replays should be tested tournaments all over the world for young people and she should be adopted at the top level within the next five years.

At a time when technology all in our jobs each day us helps, why doesn't it help referee also?

Perhaps three teams would have TV replay challenges, while to use a game. The fourth official, which already has a monitor available, could easily decide seconds.

He was away from decisions, to review penalty decisions and controversial incidents in an instant. Would it be to waste no need too much time.

And also you have thought about the time that is wasted now if players fake injuries and if they argue with the referee?

In my opinion, these two changes would help, us all football otherwise consider. There would be less controversies, less negativity in the sport, and more discussions about what should be discussed: the game itself.
