Was Florent Malouda's shot over the line?

Well this guy certainly thinks so.

Even though Chelsea ran out 2-1 winners in this afternoon's FA Cup final over David Moyes' Everton, the big talking point coming out of the game is why Florent Malouda's 8oth minute strike was not given as a goal.

Out of the 89,391 people in attendance at Wembley today, I'd say 89,390 thought it was a goal, but crucially, the linesman didn't think the whole ball had crossed the line.

So, what do you think? Was the whole ball over the line? In my view, yes, but maybe you have a different opinion. Comments below please.

    saw it once on the news. they froze framed it when it hit the ground and it didn't look like it was all the way across the line to me

    Everton provided the most inept Cup Final performance I have seen from a Premiership side. Insipid and devoid of high level skills.
    Did the ball cross the line? Of course it did. And Lampard's booking was farcical, as replays showed a penalty should have been awarded to Chelsea.
    4-1 would have been the correct result.

    This is not the first time the referee or linemen failed to its task. As ever the loser is the team. Did they actually made an mistake with their judgment? Referee problem already caused Chelsea a potentially CL final and a goal at FA Cup final. Who is the winner of judgment? Use technology if you need it and forget about pride!
