The Baggies think it’s time for the system to be introduced.
After a weekend of penalty controversies in the Premier League, West Bromwich Albion have called for video technology to be introduced into the division, reports the Daily Mail.
Chelsea were awarded a last minute penalty during their league match at the weekend to salvage a 2-2 draw with the Baggies.
There was a similar incident in the match between Swansea City and Stoke City, when the Potters were also given a spot-kick in the dying minutes to save a point.
West Brom chairman Jeremy Peace has sent a letter to the league’s officials, stating that the issue should be treated the same as goal-line decisions.
The Birmingham club have pointed out that they spent £250,000 on the technology over the summer, when in fact controversial penalty decisions are much more common in the game.
A proposal of a tennis style system – in which each side are given three reviews, with one being lost each time the decision is not found in their favour – is to be put forward for English football.
Albion believe that because of poor penalty decisions, both for and against them, the club have missed out on seven points this season, with similar incidents in matches versus Southampton, Arsenal and Stoke.
With so much riding on games and referees always prone to mistakes by the very nature of the pace and intensity of fixtures, Peace thinks its time for technology to ease the pressure.
