    Anyone agree with Capello?

    He says that if any player goes down injured, he will not allow his players to kick the ball out because it ends the action and ruins football. he wants to stop players to fake injury to waste time.

    I agree with him, and think this should be done everywhere.

    It depends on the injury and the situation on the pitch. Without doubt if its a head injury then play needs to stop, but i think the ref should have some kind of discretion to carry play on if they wish.

    This explains it a bit more.


    I have to say he's right. This might portray (sp?) Capello him as an unsympathetic guy, but the injuries to halt counter-attacks are really being abused.

    Milan-Parma was ruined because of this, Capello is right.

    I fully agree with him. Even though that sort of situation is more common in the Italian league something needs to be done about it!

    hm... when cisse went down with a snapped leg, imagine if the ball had stayed in, and the refs used this rule? cisse wouldve lost his leg completely if it wasnt for the liverpool medical staff

    im undecided over this topic, it does ruin the flow of the game, but careers are on the line at times and no one really knows the extent of each injury

    When Cisse went down even the players pointed out he was seriously hurt.

    Thats different though, when a player fakes injuries, its usually quite obvious.... a snapped leg is quite easily noticed.

    As someone who didn't see that, it begs the question - if Cisse snapped his leg, why was the game not stopped by the referee?

    I agree with Capello - don't do it. Leave it up to the referee. If he stops the play, something is wrong. If not, diving is ruining the sport - play on and score, his "injury" will miraculously recover and I doubt he will have reoccurances of it.

    Football is a mans game. Anyone who lies down on the field and wriggles around like they are having their ballsack cut off then gets up and starts running 10 seconds later should be sent off the fucking field.
