There is nothing in the rules against using an ipod to help United to win the cup so I have no problem with them on this occaision. However, if you were responsible for the rules would you close this loophole, or have no problem with it?
Time for a poll.

To me it just feels wrong, hard to explain. Probably more along the lines of where will it end.

Teams already have video footage of everyone else aside from just taking penalties. Don Revie's Leeds team in the 60s-70s were rumoured to have used detailed notes on not just rival teams but the refs too. Every team now has video footage of the opposition players and tactics prior to a match, can't see the difference in viewing footage at halftime etc. Part and parcel of modern game.

I don't think anybody but the players should be allowed on the pitch during the intervals in extra-time or before penalties, since they are allowed I can't see any problems with it. In baseball the pitcher or batter often watch video reviewing the previous plays, same with the QB in NFL.

The QB's regularly watch previous plays. If I remember correctly, in the nfl, didn't one team (i think the Patriots) get done for spying on the opposition during a game? I think they were taping the opposition coaches telling their players the next play. Lip syncing and such. Though in football this really couldn't happen unless you got a camera in the dressing room.

I don't mind it.

Im just glad Ben Foster finally got given the platform to show what i've been saying for last 3/4 years,that he is England's best keeper by some distance.

Would like to see him start more often, though with Van Der Sar getting that record it might not be too soon.

Then again, any half-decent goalie would've kept those clean sheets with that defence. Vidic has been a beast.

I rate Westwood fairly highly, could certainly be one of the top 3 English keepers in a few years. Something needs to be done before he plays a competive international for the ROI.

Cool

Hope he does,certainly would be a better career move to be successor to Shay Cool
