Boss Welcomes Goal-Line Technology

Boss hopeful new developments are here to stay.

Boss Welcomes Goal-Line Technology

David Moyes has welcomed the idea to introduce goal-line technology into English football’s top division next season.

It was announced by the Premier League on Friday that plans are in place to have a system at all 20 grounds from the start of the 2013/14 campaign.

Everton suffered earlier this season when a Victor Anichebe header against Newcastle appeared to cross the line, only to be ruled out by a linesman. 

And speaking ahead of Saturday’s visit of Reading, Moyes expressed his approval at the League’s decision.

“It’s the right reason why it is coming in, and for that most people will be pleased,” he said. “I don’t think it’s too big of an operation to bring it in and hopefully it will work well enough.”

Moyes also believes a goal-line system could trigger other technological advancements in football.

“I think goal-line technology is one of the easiest things to make happen,” added the Scot.

“A lot of us are looking at other things like retrospective [punishment for] diving. I certainly would like that. I don’t know if this is the start of more things that might be brought to the table later on.”
