I`m a Liverpool fan for 30 years and that first half performance was shameful. Chelsea didn`t break a sweat in the first half and they didn`t even have to.

There`s way too much deadwood in that Liverpool team...it`s beyond a joke now.

Fair play to Andy Carroll,he showed the passion that`s needed at the club. He`s the only Liverpool player to come out of that game with any credit. And after all the abuse he`s taken? Over the last month or so he`s improved hugely. I wouldn`t give up on him yet.

4/1 on PP.

Drogba always scores in Wembley so I said I'd go for him and a Chelsea win. Delighted.

Good point, well articulated. Never thought of it that way.

Oh and as an aside (not really related to why I don't want it), how would goalline technology have helped anything? The ball was still in play, should the ref have stopped play while waiting to be informed of the correct outcome? What if the ref had played on, chelsea played a long ball through and had scored in the time it takes for the ref to make his fully informed decision.

The reason video technology is more suitable to rugby is because it is full of stops and starts by its very nature imo.

You haven't seen the numerous replies on this thread telling you that goal-line technology is instantaneous? Goal-line technology is not the same as video technology. The system connects directly to a device the referee has. Ball crosses the line, the ref gets notified instantly

How does that work then? Is there a device in the ball and how will that work if the whole of the ball has to cross the line?

There must be something in the ball

As soon as the ball crosses the line, it beeps or whatever so that the referee knows its over the line.

Instant!

Just read the last page. Can't bear to read the tread as i'm sure the usual suspects are all over it, but is there really a debate about the ball over the line or not? Because it clearly wasn't and the officials made the right call. They can't give it if they're not sure!!
