I’m still fuming over Frank Lampard’s disallowed effort against Germany in the 2010 World Cup Round of 16 against Germany.
We’d have won it, I tell you; won the bloody thing.
Okay, we wouldn’t of because, you know, we were the team that took Stephen Warnock to the tournament. However, those frustrations of ‘what might’ve been’ for football fans were all to regular – and they never got easier to deal with – so it was refreshing to see the introduction of Goal-line Technology into the Premier League this season.
No doubt there has been times we’ve cursed the introduction of GLT as our beloved *enter team name* have been robbed of a dramatic late equaliser but, ultimately, it has been a success and left many of us questioning as to why it took so long to implement.
Following GLT’s easy transition into the beautiful game, it has brought about a lot of discussion regarding what should football do next? The possibilities really are endless but it is important to make sure those advancements only improve the game and do not takeaway from the subjective nature of football.
Ultimately, no one knows what the next technological advancement in football will be, however, all I know, is that I bloody hope Pepsi MAX have a say in it! Watch below as they surprise a group of footballers in Barcelona – no not Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez – by transforming their local pitch into an incredible, interactive football arena; using drones, advanced projection technology and over 30,000 programmable LED lights they created a football experience unlike any other.
