I don't see it as necessary. In tennis close calls come up all the time but in football it is scarce.

True, but usually a goal being disallowed or a non goal being counted as a goal will change the game much more than in tennis, especially in knockout competitions....

It's long overdue, and only a partial solution to a big referring problem in soccer...

Champions League 2005 - Semi Final - Chelsea v Liverpool.

That was a massive game to get the decision wrong.

So they're going to stop a momentum based football match with Hawkeye replays??

Yeah that is another problem. Will they just wait for the ball to go out of play or something before it can be called? I can see how it can change the outcome of a game much more than tennis but I just see it as being quite rare. Unless it is not hugely expensive then it could be worthwhile. I guess it would be cheaper than tennis because you only need it around the goal area and not the whole pitch.
