Zarate : behaving like a little girl
I have ruptured both of my ACLs playing football.

First one was in 1996, flying two footed tackle into the side of my knee. I limped straight off and hobbled to my car and drove home.

Second one was in 2001, playing on astroturf with the wrong shoes. Made a turn, foot was planted and it wrenched the ACL out. I went in goal for the rest of the game.

I have had both of them replaced long ago. I still play twice a week at age 55.

I'm not unique - there must be plenty on here that have crocked their ACL playing football.

Looking at Zarate yesterday you would think he had been shot.

8 minutes to get him off? A stretcher? A f**king oxygen mask??

Shows you everything that's wrong with today's players, a bunch of pampered snowflakes. Pathetic.

I watched some of the egg-chasing over the weekend. The tackles they put in make you wince - but the players jump up and play on. They put footballers to shame...

How can you have a basket of 1000 perfect apples if 3 of them are riddled with worms and therefore not perfect?

I'm afraid there is a non sequitur in your post.

Whether he represents 1% or 100% is irrelevant to the statement that he represents "everything that is wrong with the modern game".

In a basket of 1,000 perfect apples there might be three that are riddled with worms. It would be right to say both that the worms represent everything that is wrong with the apples and also that the three bad ones are not representative of the rest.

You see my point.

So the question you are asking is: do I think that Zarate's behaviour is representative of all footballers?

No, I don't.

But I think there are far too many who dive, cheat, deliberately foul opponents and play act - and I sense that this sort of behaviour is getting worse rather than better.

Actor?
Is going full METHOD then by having surgery on his ACL and sitting out of the game for the rest of the season
MAURO DE NIRO !!

Re: Zarate : behaving like a little girl
Infidel. Zarate does not represent "all that is wrong with the modern game" He is a whinging actor but represents a small percentage of todays footballers.

Do you agree?

Re: Zarate : behaving like a little girl
No difference between Rugby & Football players except footballers are actively encouraged from many different angles to use absolutely any situation to try and gain an advantage over the opposition. Even if it means getting a fellow pro in trouble.

When I was growing up watching the likes of billy bonds and many others it was completely unacceptable to let the opposition know they had hurt you. The turn around in one generation is unbelievable

Re: Zarate : behaving like a little girl
I clearly remember the Pearce/Redknapp incident you referred to. Rest assured I would have sprung to your aid and mentioned it, were you not the pure embodiment of evil upon earth.

Baci.

I notice the trolls who slated me for talking about the incident with Pearce are now silent.

Cleaning the egg off their faces I imagine.

Re: Zarate : behaving like a little girl
I watched a few games in the last Women's World Cup, oddly enough the last thing they do is behave like little girls when they get fouled. Shrug it off, get up and get on with it.

Give me a footy match over rugby any day BUT .... I admire the genuine skill and contact in rugby; our wincing footballers are an embarrassment.

Re: Zarate : behaving like a little girl
I don't remember Redknapp saying he could hear it from the dugout but he may have. I remember Jason McAteer's which was picked up by the TV mikes and you could hear it on match of the day.

Re: Zarate : behaving like a little girl
I heard it crack too we were close to the dug out . Was nasty and yes he did try to play on until he realised he couldn't.

Yep, that's it.

Wasn't there an interview after the game where Redknapp said they had heard the bone crack, as it happened quite close to the dugout?

As you say it was a different incident to the one where the break was diagnosed at half time...

Re: Zarate : behaving like a little girl
I find it a little mysterious how rugby players use their shoulders to tackle, , leap on each other in a merry way and bleed quite happily until someone suggests they should get gaping wounds patched up.

Footballers, on the other hand, fall over with no help from the wind, bleat like new born lambs and then complain like fuck when no-one pays attention.

As Roman Poite said yesterday to England, "it's a penalty, move back". End of discussion.

Re: Zarate : behaving like a little girl
Having a kick about over the park when teenagers and a few mates got bored so decided to climb up to the top of the changing room single story buildings and slide down the roof and jump off!

On the way down one yelled out a eerie blood curdling scream of a type I hope I never hear the likes of again. Turned out he had slid down over an old rusty nail sticking out of the corrugated roof panel which had split his ball bag wide open.

Broken bones -no
Dislocations - yes
Herniated discs -no
Burst stomach ulcer -no
Head stuck in a curb and stamped on - no
Stuck head through windscreen of car - no
Stepping on a stingray and getting barbed in the ankle - no
Having a blocked bladder - no

That's not living, that's being a clumsy fucker who doesn't look where he's going.
