"An inch or two either side of the post and that would have been a goal."

Today comes word that Keith Hackett, chief of Premier League referees, would welcome the use of goal-line technology to figure out if teams have scored. And not a moment too soon - the debacles in the past two weeks have played havoc with the league table.

This weekend, Middlesbrough unfairly suffered an own goal, and Chelsea had a good one ruled out. Last weekend, Newcastle were the victims as a Shearer header was disallowed.

To strengthen the case, The Daily Hairdryer will be keeping tabs on these poor decisions from now on! As the season progresses, TDH will show you the table as it would have looked, had the Premier League been using those little microchips.

So please, if you see a press report on a poor decision that TDH has missed, send it in by clicking on "Comments" below. The three decisions already charted have all been pivotal - that is, points would have changed hands - and there will surely be many more.

In the meantime, if you want to tell Keith Hackett just how you feel, you can email
