Lady Justice Turns a Blind Eye
There are different kinds of 'blindness' which sometimes overlap, creating some confusion. The blindfolded sculpture of Lady Justice that many may remember from the 1960 movie Inherit the Wind represents a fair, objective judgement, yet at the same time she is portrayed as being "blind" to the community's ignorance to the law. Similarly, FIFA has been preaching objectivity while evading the issue of goal line technology beyond random talks of wanting to improve it without removing the 'human element' from the game. Football is long overdue for some new rules, and goal line technology is the number one priority.
Reading v Man Utd is only the third match in Premier League history to see seven first-half goals.
The same record holds for two other games, Blackburn-Leeds (1997) and Derby-Bradford (2000).
Wayne Rooney’s penalty (16 mins) was the 1000th that Manchester United have scored in the Premier League this century.
