    a card for simulation should be an automatic red if it's in the box.

    Seriously, you don't want to go back to those days where serie A football played at a snail's pace with defensive formations squeezing the life out of both the opposition attackers and the watching public ruled the roost.
    You being serious??

    I don't know, I can think of atleast one pretty decent side that played good football in the 80s, and it wasn't in Serie A either.

    And we should play with leather balls with proud laces that got so heavy when wet and boots covering our ankles. Oh and not forgetting pitches like mud baths.

    Cool thread
    When you watch a football game from that time then you realise how crap it was. Some teams would spend literally half of the time back passing the goal to the keeper.

    I would suggest a rule change to prohibit passing back to a teammate across the midfield line. This would speed up the game and put more emphasis on attacking.

    I don't understand why diving is a yellow card offence if the ref spots it, but a 2 game ban if he doesn't.
