Remember when Mourinho's Inter knocked Barca out of the Champions League in 2010, he insisted afterwards that his team would rather give Barca the ball back rather than go forward for fear of being counter-attacked. Maybe this will be the future, boring but successful tactic of football and nobody's latched onto it yet. Or maybe he was just talking bo11ocks.
Football should add a "shot clock" like basketball. Matches would be far more exciting, you have 20 seconds to get into the opposition half and another 30 seconds after that. If the team doesn't do anything the other team is awarded a free kick where the ball was last.
Imagine the action. Barcelona would be screwed.
