Me, clever???. Not so sure about that Speedie boy and when did I say I believed Deano??. I simply said "it's all gone quiet over there".. Are you saying iamthebest is the smartest one on here?. He'll be your friend forever I think.

Speedy most of us have been around long enough to know the players who are likely to take a tumble when you breath near them, like yourself and tariq (holmans) and know better than to play into your hands in and around the area. Trouble is it still winds you up during the game however much we like you after the game.

I guess all defenders would call it cheating, midfielders a bit split and some forwards would be all for it.

Apart from you speedy, lets have some nominations for other divers for the refs reading this can watch out for.

I,m totally in agreement with you Speedy. Like it or not Diving is a big part of Football, after reading all the posts I cant see why everyone is up in the air with you mate. Most games have a few dives in, and how many did you see in the european ties the other night?

Oh my god, I can't believe that a goalkeeper is saying that diving or cheating as I prefer to call it, is ok? You must be one braindead tool Topcat. Seeing as you're the last line of defence and the one who has to take the ball out of the net when the penalty that was won by the diving, cheating ba@#ard is slammed past you, I thought you'd have more sense than to condone diving. You people make me sick and should be banned from playing the beautiful game. Join a bloody swimming team or something.

I got married because I enjoy diving TC ;) . I score great goals from great distances, scoring from 12 yards with just a keeper to beat is nothing to shout about and there is absolutely NO WAY you would see me diving on the pitch. How can you possibly say it's part of our great game?. I'd like to see somebody dive or cheat if it was the likes of Johnny Webster tackling them. He'd make sure they never got up again and rightly so. All that it does is takes the beauty out of a wonderful game and just like drug taking athletes, diver's should be banned indefinately.

so divings a no no coops

but johnny webster is ok 2 outright injure someone??????i think a bit of diving is not as bad as purposely hurting some1

speedy1

cooper0

Speedy 1- Cooper 0??.

At NO stage have I said that Johnny Webster would "purposely" hurt someone. Johnny is a VERY hard man who plays a VERY hard game BUT a very fair one. He'll take it as much as he'll give it. I was just pointing out that IF somebody took a dive when he didn't make contact with them, they wouldn't be the cleverest of people. He may not do anything about it on the pitch but I reckon he'd enjoy a quiet word in their ear after the game.

Oh, Johnny Webster - If you ever get to meet or play against him, PLEASE, for your own sake show him a bit of respect because he deserves it. Oh, and he'd eat you for dinner.

I'm not trying to big anybody up mate and I certainly don't need to blow up any reputation when it comes to Johnny Webster. He has a reputation as a hard man/player because he is exactly that. As for "you can't beat youth". OH YES HE CAN.

Johnny Webster ...... If you showed him the same attitude that you appear to show people on here you would do it just to save that face of yours. You play Junior football Speedy, I suggest that you ask Kevin tomorrow who Johnny is, he'll put you straight. OR ask on here whether he is reputation or reality. He's a bloody nice bloke aswell though.

A nice piece of bickering lads !

But lets face it 'diving' is part and parcel of the game and always will be.

I actually think it stems down to the referee's decsions !

If an 'honest' player goes through on goal and a defender tries to bring him down but manages to stay on his feet as all 'honest' players should but then gains no advantage, 9 times out of 10 the ref waves play on.

On the other hand if the player was to go down under the same challenge i.e. dive, then 9 times out of 10 the ref gives the pen ! !

I believe these decsions sway a players mind to dive or not.
