Rovers Boss Calls For Video Replays
Mark Hughes has never been one for the introduction of video technology into football but with so much at stake the Blackburn Rovers boss thinks maybe it is time.
With so much on the line nowadays in football each wrong decision could be a decision that costs a club millions of pounds or even managers their jobs!
After seeing yet more controversial decisions go against Rovers on Sunday Hughes has added his weight to the growing number of managers, coaching staff and even players who think it is time video technology entered the game, Sparky said:
"I have never been an advocate of technology. But when huge decisions at the top level have an impact on teams, management and players then something has to be done.
"There are clear breaks in play whenever there is a penalty claim or a goal is scored.
"In that short period of time it can be established very quickly whether it was a genuine penalty kick or a genuine goal.
"Sooner rather than later they should bring it in, and I think it will happen."
Until calls go against your team many people give it too much thought. As these calls have so often gone against Rovers this season, with us having dodgy penalties awarded against, but not for, red cards dished out needlessly, balls crossing the line but not given and goals not ruled out for offside when maybe they were or even not given when they should have as the case might have been you can see why Hughes is aggrieved.
So long as it doesn't take too much away from the game I think it should happen, and probably will.
My main problem area, and one which will be the main stumbling block will be making sure that every club throughout every country has such technology, but with the costs involved is this genuinely possible for everyone? It surely can't be a case of some using and some not it will have to be all or nothing!
What do you think? Can and will this happen? If so will it work…
