Letter: You Say - Linesmen the answer.

Byline: Bob Parry

CONSTANTLY watching highlights of football on television, we are shown missed actions and decisions by referees and managers by pundits.

The vast majority are identified by cameras behind the goal posts.

We have a referee controlling the playing area, and a linesman covering each side of the playing area, along with a fourth official near to the centre of the playing area sideline - and yet the referee still does not always get it right.

For the cost of another linesman, one each end, running the line behind the goal area, perhaps we would have full coverage of all areas.
