    My GHod, what an absolute farce. This is the first game I've ever actually watched with it. It's a complete nightmare. Whoever came up with it needs beheading

    If this is the future of football, I'm out

    I can't decide if it's just incompetence or if it's been deliberately designed to fail.

    I honestly think it's designed to create the opportunity to get advert breaks into games. It's destroying everything sporting

    Overpaid tossers ruining the concept of an idea which is executed in other sports. One challenge per team. Get it right you get one more. Get it wrong, over. Or just don’t have it. THIS version is a giant fudging farce.

    Just accept that decisions can be subjective, like everyone has for the past 600 odd years of the sport

    Reminds me of the Ice Hockey when I watched it in New York.

    I blame people like Ferguson and Wenger, the bad sports who could never take a bad decision against them and who put pressure on refs to give bad decisions for them.

    Flow, excitement, joy. Everything apart from making you angry at the modern world. Neo-liberal flimflam

    What a fudging embarrassment. Even when we score, you don't see the passion of the players celebrating, just a referee stood like a lemon with a finger in his ear.

    Use of technology is fine and improves the sport - they've just applied it wrongly. Best solution would be to give each team 1 or 2 appeals per game and if your appeal succeeds, you keep it. And the decision is only changed if something is clearly wrong. In most games, managers wouldnt make crazy appeals given that they'd want to keep their right to appeal for something obviously wrong

    The problem this evening is that the ref checked it for everything, and even then interpreted things wrong. The problem wasnt the technology per se

    They have just moved the bad decisions back 2 minutes.

    Back to the drawing board I think.

    It's bollox, football is good any change still has refs making judgement calls so still open to accusing bent etc.

    What you gain is not worth what you lose.

    It's football, not a circus show. The technology doesn't improve it, it's a gimmick. Like 3D glasses or smellovision

    Goalline technology is fine, but there's nothing else that won't detract from the sport.

    If decisions can be subjective the laws are too ambiguous

    Not in a contact sport - there will always be a grey area around how much is too much contact

    Similarly when they messed with the offside rule a few years ago, they introduced loads of ambiguity and interpretation there

    None of those sports have flow. They are very short setpice plays, punctuated by much longer periods of resetting
