    He also said the same days and weeks before the England-Ukraine game. Talking about the Frank Lampards non-goal he said "FIFA cannot repeat the same situation that we encountered with that game."

    Right...it is not because it happened against England...In the run ups there were 12 (yes 12) instances where GLT (Goal line technology) would have determined if another team got through to the final 16. Also in the world cup there were instances. He can't just say yes, as it affects a lot of leagues across the globe and has to be negotiated with the various FA's across the globe. So please don't say that because it happened against England its a must have.

    I've noticed that no one has brought up the Clint Hill "goal" against Bolton for QPR?

    I was directly in line with it (in a corporate box.... ooOOoo...flash get!.... Yes, well it WAS a freebie!!...but I digress.....) and cannot understand how neither the ref OR the linesman missed that. I could see it and I was 20 yards FURTHER AWAY than the linesman (sorry....Referees assistant).

    Back to the point though.... GLT or video replay would have sorted that out in seconds.... Sky were showing the replays that proved conclusive within 30 seconds.

    England to reach the Semis? Hope so, but Italy will be a tough match. Overall, I was happy with last night considering we were up against one of the home nations who HAD to win to stand a chance of going through.

    Onwards and upwards for Roy and the boys!



    P.S. I'd also like to congratulate everyone on ignoring the blatant anti-football posts!!!

    using a highly technical method of putting a piece of paper lining up the assistant ref with the goalpost it looks like its lined up with the ball perfectly.

    He was probably watching the post thinking "if i see the ball on the right had side of the post its a goal" but due to the angle never did.

    I'm all for goal line technology but if we had been using it in this game then we would have conceded a goal that should never have been allowed because of the much more blatant offside in the build up. Then we would be complaining about the assistant referee for not spotting the offside.

    The point i'm making is there will always be mistakes and goal line technology will only stop a small number of these mistakes. What about all the penalties that should/shouldn't have been given?

    Yes we should use technology if we can but there will still be mistakes that we have to accept are part of the game - if there wasn't controversy what would we all talk about afterwards??

    Looks like Germany are through! They look like the team to beat for me. Spain look good but not as good

    Oh come on....

    Is anyone else not surprised at all as to how we went out?

    Poor performance, last night, where we let the Italians have far too much possession, and they could/should have been out of sight by full time.

    Oh well.....Brazil 2014 to look forward to....but hope that Young, Milner, Terry and Cole get nowhere near THAT particular squad!

    The reasons why I pick those?

    Young - Did virtually nothing for most of the tournament, except unneccessary diving at every opportunity
    Milner - Waste of a shirt. Every time he got wide, he tried to cut back in instead of crossing the ball. If he did manage a cross, it was generally very poor quality.
    Terry - Hope he'll never wear an England shirt again. "We know what you said"
    Cole - Great full back, but will fade away now.

    (These, as a QPR fan, are my own opinions, and I place them here for debate, not a flame war!)
