First of all, let me start this off by saying, I am not bitter.

OK...maybe just a little but in light of this: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/21734000 do you think the need for goal-line technology is becoming greater?

That mistake above when the ball was cleary a good two feet over the line before it bounced away not only cost my beloved Hibs a win against our rivals - believe me something that does not happen very often - but on the grand scale of things that may have cost us a victory in a very tight league in which 2 points dropped could easily make the difference financially in terms of around 100,000 depending on our end of season position.

And these mistakes happen way more often than they should - England versus Germany a few years back springs to mind.

Do you think goal-line technology, due to be introduced in the coming years, is a good step forward?

I do. *Rant over*

A very good step forward. There is no excuse to not do it; cricket and tennis have shown the way.

Yeah, I definitely do - this kind of technology has certainly been a great asset in cricket. It must be difficult for referees to judge, and it does sometimes seem as if they're reluctant to award a goal unless the ball literally is "in the back of the net".

Completely agree with you on that.

Oh...I remember that now - another shocking decision if I may say so(Spurs are the only English team I support!)
