Why should that concern you, or other Argyle fans for that matter. If he's ambitious to get higher up the ladder in English football that can only be good for Argyle, as long as we match his aspirations of course....if we don't then why should he stay? Catch 22 me thinks and Argyle can benefit from those ambitions! We did with Holloway!
Am I alone in getting fed to the teeth watching 'prostrate' footballers (athletes) collapsing in agony just yards from the touchline. The Trainer comes on, treats the player on the pitch, walks him off and the referee almost instantly waves him back on. During that time my very expensive ticket money is being eroded!
Here's a suggestion...1) Any player that requires treatment from the Trainer on the Pitch must leave the field of play for a minimum of 5 minutes to be supervised by the 4th official and can only return when the ball is next out of play.This will stop him play-acting.
2) If said injury was caused by an offence which the referee deems cautionable then the opposing player must also leave the field for the same duration.This will eradicate the unfair advantage gained when a bad foul causing genuine injury, the injured player has to leave for treatment but the opposition have 11 men to carry on the fight!!
Lots of people will think this is fantasy or playing with the rules but when your team are at home 1 down with 5/10 minutes to go don't tell me you don't get angry when it happens!!
Come on you bigwigs sort it out!!!
