    .....becoming an epidemic. Goalie makes routine save and somehow manages to fall to the ground and take about 5 seconds to get up.

    The Argentinian lassie has it off to an art.

    The problem is that it takes so long to book them.

    If the refs are quicker to book them then they run the risk of a red card if they continue. If someone gets sent off for it, it may have an impact.

    The amount of time keepers waste is significant, it’s multiple minutes not seconds. Sometimes the time wasting begins in the first half which is ridiculous.

    Just checked to see if the 6 second rule is still in place which it is. If you watch the clock when McLaughlin has it, by the time he pretends to do a quick throw out then changes his mind there’s usually twice that time elapsed.

    Then he drops it on the ground and waits another few seconds (I know that bit is legal)

    I seem to recall Mignolet being penalised a couple of seasons ago for Liverpool but MOTD timed his holding the ball at more than 20 seconds

    It’s 6 seconds and still in place unless my google results are out of date. Every keeper on a leading team exceeds this

    It’s a long time since I did my ref certification but the six second rule was rescinded at one point I’m sure. Maybe when they stopped the pick up from a back pass rule around 1997? IIRC time wasting was then left to the ref’s discretion. If the 6 second rule is back that’s news to me but it doesn’t matter anyway as it is almost never enforced.
