Football is going soft
« on: July 16, 2021, 07:27:22 PM »
Not quite sure why I watched this but it jumped up on my FB feed.  I got the feeling Vinnie Jones didn’t like Keane or Cantona 😂 utterly brutal

Nice to see skill prevail and the worldie go in after Jones nearly snapped his legs. Those tackles from Jones and Fash are brutal!

Absolutely terrible. I know some like the old ways and rejoice in these hard players and say ‘footballs gone’ but for the youngsters growing up and getting into football at least they can really express themselves with skill and ability without the threat of broken legs by an old clogger with no ability.

I’d much rather watch players like Jack, Sancho and Saka waltzing and skipping passed players.

It probably highlights how good some players were back then, Maradona, Ronaldo, Zidane etc.
