Flow of the game? Back and forth pass pass pass back and forth. A little replay action definitely couldn't hurt. We're not talking about kick the can.. Its a professional game that isn't that simple.

 

That won't happen. First it would cause to many breaks and destroy the games flow - can't compare it to baseball or american football, where you have breaks every 30 or so seconds anyway.

Second it would lead to even more discussions with players and coaches, cause they would want a replay for every minor tackling.

Third: how should it be handled in lower leagues, small tournaments, third world countrys and on amateur level? There are Cameras on most international and major league matches for sure but not every second or third division game is being broadcastet.

 

 

I think football is a simple game and it should be kept simple because this way everybody, everywhere on the planet, can play with the same rules.

 

But the FIFA should rethink the way referees are selected for the world cup. At the moment, refs are chosen 3 years ahead of the tournament and there doesn't seem to be anyone monitoring their performance from that time on. This way a ref can turn to beeing notoriously misjudging for three years but no one's going to stop him from leading a worldcup match. Ridiculous but true!

This would for sure ruin the game, but all the dives interupt the flow too. If they reviewed the game afterwards and gave out cards to anyone caught in an egregious dive might act as a detterent...

Sure: dives have to be prevented. But as i pointed out, the problem is the referees quality not the rules themselves. Think of famous referees like Pierluigi Collina, no one would even dare to try a dive in front of that guy, just because of his experience and authority. Also: a decent referee doesn't need to throw out a bunch of cards to get respected (or even feared) by the players, often a freekick and a deep look in the eyes can be enough to prevent further irregularities.

What a game!

 

Brilliant match. We needed a performance and got it. Shame we couldn't finish them off but we should have won comfortably. The Slovenian keeper had a great game. Looking forward to facing Germany on Sunday!
