So when Salah goes down easily he's a cheat but when Sterling does it he's in line for an OBE. Makes sense doesn't it 🤔.

Agree8 Disagree0

08 Jul 2021 19:28:22
Clever play i believe they call it.

08 Jul 2021 19:57:03
I think the point is that it is now common place in football in all leagues. People trying to gain higher ground by pointing out that Sterling is any worse than Salah or vice versa need to get a life. I'm not a fan but its here to stay by the looks of things. Suck it up, move on.

08 Jul 2021 20:22:15
EVERY team does but it's how the fans perceive it. Some will say it's cheating some will say it's clever play. I wouldn't worry about it at all lad's.

08 Jul 2021 20:29:31
When England do it all is forgotten though.

{Ed025's Note - yeah but they only play half a dozen times a year andy, mo does it every game basically mate.. :)

08 Jul 2021 20:48:44
And Harry kane Ed?

{Ed025's Note - yeah joe another serial cheat, and even we have richarlison who is second only to the mighty mo mate..

08 Jul 2021 20:55:04
I'd say Harry kane is the absolute worst of the lot if I'm honest mate he falls to the ground like he's been shot about 10 times a game to be honest.

{Ed025's Note - yeah hes right up there joe, and grealish as well..

08 Jul 2021 21:11:18
Mo at least tries to stay on his feet when he is being man-handled by opposing defenders. Can’t say the same for Kane who would go down in a heap soon as an oppo. player breathed on hom or walked by him.

My thing is this: If people want to ignore the English players diving or going down easily upon contact by dishonestly saying everyone does it (which is not even true) then, don’t you dare lecture anyone when foreign players go down easily or dive in the PL. It is this type of hypocrisy that makes people like me lose it. If you say nothing when England players do it then, say nothing when foreign players do it. The End.

{Ed025's Note - its out of order whoever does it oli, but lest we forget that all this rolling around and simulation WAS brought to our shores through foreign players mate, especially the italians and south americans in the 80,s, yes we have caught on fast but its something that is ruining the game mate..

08 Jul 2021 21:26:41
Can't ever see it being stamped out of the game now which is the sad thing. If anything I think it could get worse with football becoming more and more of a non contact sport. Something we are just going to have to live with.

{Ed025's Note - sadly i think your right joe..

08 Jul 2021 21:35:15
The one that gets me with Kane is that he always holds his ankles together. Doesn't matter which part of him is clipped/ tapped/ blown on. I presume he thinks that refs know about his previous ankle injuries and are more likely to give him the free kick.

08 Jul 2021 22:38:19
Going down as if shot when anyone comes near you

Losing control of your legs if somebody touches your back/ arm

Holding your face like you have just lost and eye when you lose the ball in an advanced position

Pushing you backside back against a defender like a dog in heat and then falling to your knees

All 10 lash offenses in my book.
(OK so I just described Harry Kanes mode of operandi)

When it's a non English player it's cheating, when it's 'Arry it's clever play.

08 Jul 2021 22:43:39
Mr. Super Eagle the xenophobe is back with his saltiness i see.
Lose it all you want but cut out the hatred for all things English.
I hate having to interrupt Liverpool fans banter between yourselves but you've been spouting hate for way too long now so i will call you out every time from now on flower!

08 Jul 2021 23:30:58
Both Mane and Salah are constantly fouled and never go down when they should, then they’ll throw themselves to the ground trying to force a foul when its clearly never a pen. If they were more wise as to when its legitimately acceptable to go down for a foul then they’d get less stick and more penalties, alas this is the reality we live in. It does do my head in though that people think they throw themselves to the ground constantly when in fact they actually try to stay on their feet way too much. Kane and Grealish are bonafide cheats and spend a lot of their time looking for fouls, Pep will want to pull his hair out. Oh wait.

09 Jul 2021 02:13:44
Not sure it’s hatred of the English, more the complete irrelevance of the English team to a lot of Liverpool supporters. And the hypocrisy of the gutter press, condemning foreign players for winning free kicks but ignoring or praised English players who do exactly the same or worse.

09 Jul 2021 00:53:59
Bring back the 70/ 80's style where players get mowed out of it, get up and get on with it eh ed 25🙂.

{Ed025's Note - absolutely gmil, its a non-contact sport now and they may as well wear little pink tutu,s and wave their wands about mate.. :)

09 Jul 2021 02:40:07
Hi Ed025, but unlike Mo, Richarlison is a nasty piece of work.

{Ed025's Note - yes KC, mo is a very happy cheat i must admit mate..

09 Jul 2021 02:46:27
Agree wit Ed025, the Italians in the 80’s were real shockers, Benetton, Causio and the like - stand within. 5 yards of them and they were rolling around all over the place and then whinging non-stop when penalised for going in over the top.

I actually think diving is nowhere near as bad these days as it was in the 80’s.

Have to say my favourite was the 70’s - pitch battles (literally) - “it were a man’s game in them days” 😁😁.

{Ed025's Note - i must admit WDW i did like to see an assassin or two on the pitch, you have had some goodun,s in the past like souness, jimmy case and tommy smith, imagine grealish playing in a game against them? a gold fish in a tank of piranha,s.. :)

09 Jul 2021 07:01:32
West Derby, just see the man marking job Gentile did on Maradona in 1982. It was almost a thing of beauty, was rough but always stopped short of anything bookable. If England had done the same to him in 86, it would have been a different story. Football has gone soft.

09 Jul 2021 07:12:24
So I see "Clever Play" in the same light as VAR.

It's brilliant when it works in your favour but fails when it works against you.

09 Jul 2021 08:10:56
Look at the end of the day cheating is cheating. Liverpool players have done it. Everton players have done it. United players have done it. Chelsea players have done it etc etc What doesn't sit right with me is because it's got England to a final it's suddenly ok amongst a majority of fans. If Salah, Richarlison, Fernandes for example do it next season which one of them will probably do watch them get ripped to shreds by the British media and fans.

09 Jul 2021 08:14:43
As for Worcester you spread enough hate about us on your own page.

09 Jul 2021 08:51:54
Rudder, I still don't know who the hateful xenophobe is, that he is talking about.

09 Jul 2021 13:40:23
He's seeing or hearing things OilRed like the Everton players when they accused Firmino of racism.

09 Jul 2021 15:49:22
Ah Ok, Rudder. Thanks.
