Chelsea literally inches away from scoring thanks to goal line technology

Chelsea thought they had a goal by Kurt Zouma but West Ham barely cleared the ball off the line. Seeing it live, it was definitely close but we didn’t know how close of a goal it was until we saw the goal line technology picture.

Wow, if there wasn’t goal line technology, this would have been a goal and we all would’ve been okay with that because it definitely looked like a goal. I don’t care what Michel Platini and UEFA say, a human being with eyes would have ruled that as a goal. That’s why goal line technology is one of the greatest contributions to modern soccer and anyone who argues that a fifth referee on the endline is a better solution is surely having a laugh.
