The solution is that everyone always plays to the whistle.  That should stop any confusion.  It is the referee's job to decide when play stops, NOT the players.  How many times has some team had attacking possession only to lose momentum as play is stopped for an opposition player.  The 'injured' player has a small bit of attention from the physio, before getting to his feet, limping for 3 seconds and then sprinting like a young gazelle for the next 50/50 ball.


The wife was going away for a girly weekend.
I jokingly remarked  'I don't know whether to spend it watching porn or watching football'
'you may as well spend it watching porn' she replied
That's understanding darling what makes you say that? I asked

She said 'Well you already know how to play football'

I made a suggestion some time ago that if a player was injured enough to require the physio then he should go off the pitch for 5 mins to ensure he is fit enough to continue. This would stop players "feigning " injury just to buy time or disrupt play. I know it sounds harsh but I bet it would stop a lot of the gamesmanship surrounding so called injuries.

I think Civvy is right.  
As a keeper in my youth on Barratts on a very muddy winters day I dived on a ball and slithered across the very muddied bye line carrying the ball over the line.
I threw the ball to the corner flag in a gesture of perceived fairness and received a right telling off from a couple of my defenders for doing so.  In retrospect I think they were right.  The referee is the one giving the decisions and if members of the playing sides take over that role only mayhem can ensue as in this Leeds game.
I see the referee in the clip ignoring the player and following play. He did not appear to blow up to stop play. Therefore he judged no foul and play goes on.  If the players had accepted his authority there would have been no farcical antics.

This incident reminds me of a game at Blundell Park about 10 years ago, when Town lost 2-1 to Bristol Rovers.
I believe it was Rob Jones who was laid flat out in the 6 yard box at the Pontoon end, when Rovers ran through and scored.

Mick Taylor who was the announcer at the time announced, " Congratulations to Junior Agogo, for scoring the most unsporting goal of the season. "

I think that was the last time we heard Mick's dulcet tones.

"Leeds United's Patrick Bamford has been charged with 'successful deception of a match official' after his actions in a clash with Aston Villa on Sunday.

After simulating being hit in the face by Anwar El Ghazi, the Aston Villa player was sent off; as a result of today's charge, that card has now been overturned.

Bamford, on the other hand, looks set to be handed a two-match ban which would see him miss the beginning of the promotion play-offs."

not sure all the discussion on here is that necessary when a simple  "Dirty Leeds"  would have done to describe it
