Irons co chairman David Gold has been calling for technology on key decisions for a very long time and is back on the case after the shocking error of refereeing judgement at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
He is not being reactionary as his pedigree on the issue goes back several years but he believes the time is NOW to make the change.
And he insists that it doesn’t need millions spent on high tech equipment but merely a second ref watching on television and passing down his judgement.
He said: “All that is required is another official watching controversial incidents and passing a decision to the on pitch official – the same as cricket.
“This is not a reaction. It’s a view I have held for a long time. There is so much pressure coming on referees and we need to help them and get these decisions right as often as we can.”
