So Moudrid got left with 10 men again... Di Maria was diving and arguing with the refs (again) and get this, the ref gave them 7 minutes of extra time. SEVEN ****ING MINUTES OF EXTRA TIME. They still lost 2-3 to Zaragoza who are fighting off relegation.
What will Mou say now???
Heh, Barcelona just lost to Real Sociedad. Lazy and uninspired play... Too many damn classicos.
1. The Captain and only the Captain can ask for clarification of a decision any argument sees the the foul moved 10 yards back and keeps going 10 yards back as long as people are arguing with the ref until they reach the penalty box in which case a penalty is given.
2. The use of video technology, every major sport uses it but rugby and hockey are a good example of how the flow of a game is not interupted due to replays. Peoples job hinge on big decisions, how much might two big decisions cost Tottenham after yesterdays game?
3. The thing I really love in Rugby that I want used in Soccer is the game clock. In Rugby the game clock stops during major breaks like injuries etc. When the clock does hit 80 mins(The length of a rugby match) the game only ends when the ball goes dead i.e. it is kicked out etc. This would cut out the pxxxing about with injury feigning and time wasting as well as cutting out the contentious issue of the ref giving too much injury time.
The issue with Spanish football is they don't view cheating in the way we do, there is a popular programme in the U.K. called Revista La Liga which is presented by a well known Spanish journalist, when the English host asked about a particular dive and feigning of injury the Spanish journalist said "In Spain they don't see that as cheating, it is actually viewed as a badge of honour, a view that we got one over our opponent."
On Wednesday one of the English commentators said word for word with regards to the feigning and diving. "I am glad we don't see this back home."

Thank god that **** is over. Playing 4 games in 18 days with your arch rivals is a little much.
I think Real Madrid should change their crest to a wrecking ball...
Ramon Calderon gets it.
BBC Sport - Football - Jose Mourinho comments harmful to Real - Ramon Calderon
Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon says the club has been damaged by Jose Mourinho's behaviour during the European semi-finals with Barcelona.
But Calderon has blasted the behaviour of Real's players and manager.
"Big clubs should not blame the referee for their mistakes or their defeats," said Calderon.
"We invested £400m in the last two years to be a very important and strong team so if you lose you cannot blame injuries, bad luck, referees or nothing. If you lose you have to congratulate the rival and that is all.
In case anyone missed it Real players blamed the ref, yet again. They were xxxxxng lucky that they were not down to 10 men early on, the ref did his damndest to give Real a break.
