FFC Survey On Technology

FFC Survey On Technology

Dear Football fan

The latest Football Omnibus survey gives you the chance to have your say on Goal Line Technology, Video Refereeing and the National Football Museum Click here to take part

At its meeting on 3rd March in Manchester, the International Football Association Board (IFAB), the guardian of the Laws of the Game, gave the go ahead for the development of goal-line technology for deciding whether a ball has crossed the line or not.

Any proposed system seeking IFAB approval must meet the following four principles:

The technology should apply only to goal-line technology
The system must be 100% accurate
The indication of whether or not the ball has crossed the line must be instantaneous between the system and the referee
The signal is communicated only to the match officials.
Watch do you think of the IFAB's decision? Click Here to take part

We are also running a quick survey on Football Management Video games and would appreciate it if you would take part.

There are just 6 questions, it should only take a minute of your time and you can earn FFC Reward points as ever.

Many thanks for your support

This doesn't really affect Pompey as our strikers . . . er sorry forwards don't get the ball close enough to the goal line. We'd be ok, though, if the technology had a 'tolerence' of 6 yards so when a ball is put into the box for the second time in the 90 minutes it might register as a goal. Jeez, even the Scummers can score goals.

Hey Et_Tu_ intresting to hear Harry saying in regards to Kanu " no one not even a striker is irreplaceable... i mean look at Yakubu" is it me? or are we still awaiting his replacement?

Rabbi having been away for a while i was intrested to see how Pearce and his prodigy the "always being picked on" Barton are fairing.

Yep Yakubu was special and has not been replaced. Apart from him, who was our last decent striker? Rory Allen?? JOKE

I think Harry has to go shopping in the Summer for a new face !!!

'arry will go shopping for plenty of new faces in the summer and if all is true will get all the support he needs from Gaydamak...

Rory Allen in my opinion would have been a more than decent striker had it not been for injuries... Before Yak it has to be John Alosi, before him Guy Whittingham... Lov him or hate him Crouchy didn't have a bad season with us did he... Gerry Creaney wasn't bad for a while and similar to Rory Allen in terms of injuries and how they effected him Mark Burchall, started off really well didn't he...

Seven month consultation yields result

There was much speculation about what would happen, what the final outcome could bring and how happy - or disappointed - this was going to leave us. The new Pompey club crest is known.

Oldham - 17th March - Boundary Park

The recent form at Fratton Park has been terrible. Then again it's hardly stunning away from the South Coast, but we'll hope to put Oldham under pressure and collect a much-needed win.

On this day in history...17th March
