This is not a personal attack on any individual, this is just my opinion on how I see the game.
If you are offended by bad language, then please do not, I repeat, do not read any further.
So, Raheem Sterling reckons Manchester City are being Butcherd by bad tackles.
Mr Sterling says referee's should protect him and his team mates because many of them will have a world cup to play in a couple months.
Have you ever heard such a load of shite in all your life?
Who do these premiership players think they are?
If football hasn't already become a "non-contact" sport, it soon will be.
Most of them are just a load of Johnny big bollocks with tatoo's and fancy hair cuts strutting around like peacocks in pink and yellow slippers and behaving like they are in a fashion show rather than competing in a football match.
Ok lads, let's not tackle anyone incase it's mistimed.
Can you imagine the day when these are the referees instructions to teams before games, or even, managers instructions to players?
If you want non-contact then go and play tennis or golf.
We all know what a £50 million plus player can get you these days.
With an average weekly wage of around £250,000, it's actually the people that agree to pay these piss taking wages that are destroying the game even more than the peacocks on the pitch.
In my opinion, the standard of premiership football has declined dramatically even in the last 4 to 5 years.
Any player who is judged to be a fraction better than an average player is deemed to be a superstar and worshipped like some god.
Many of them may be better players if they did not have their heads stuck so far up their own arse.
There are some that have repeated this offence.
Super fit athletes with power and pace playing at the higest level.
"Cheating" in front of thousands of people in the ground, and many, many more thousands watching on live television.
Any other sport anywhere in the world and cheats are delt with appropriately.
Usually, the offenders are ashamed to show their faces in public, people even ridicule them.
Some are actually banned for a couple of years.
In some cases, they are tarnished for life as a cheat.
Not footballers, no, not the untouchables, not the super heroes because they don't live in the real world do they?.
Take a dive in the penalty box without enough contact to knock an ant over, or even more blatant, do it without being touched, which is basically cheating, then all that happens, is that the ref may show them a yellow card and no more is said about the incident.
"I'm sure I felt the slightest of contact so, I went down"
You can actually hear players screaming and acting like they have been shot by a sniper after taking a dive trying to con the referee.
They do this without any sign whatsoever of embarrassment or guilt.
If that is the way the game is going, then so be it, but for me, it's not the football that I loved since I was a kid, so I will choose not to watch the wankers take the piss every week.
I think there is too much money in the english game and once all the "oversea's" money has had enough...The bubble will burst.
If football is going to use VAR, then use it properly.
Let's use it the same way as rugby use's it.
In fact, let's take a couple of things that they do in rugby.
Let's have the ref miked up, and make it easier for viewers/commentators to know exactly what is going on and why.
It will make the referees job easier.
Once the drama queens of football gets used to the referee saying "go away, I just need to talk to your captain", then discipline will come into the game.
Respect for people making the decisions, none of this arguing that is just a plan to try and influence the refs decisions.
Keep it to just the major plays, goals/penalties if the ref is in doubt, at least we will get the correct decision.
Transparency will also be a major factor.
I think I had better stop there because, as you know, these topics can go for ever, so...
