Sadio Mane - Diver or Advantage taker ?

Recommended Posts

With the Liverpool v Man City game coming up this weekend the spotlight was on Mane after his booking against Villa for.....guffaw, guffaw.....'simulation'. Mane's thoughts (just like Sky co-commentator Andy Walker) are that if he is touched he is 'entitled' to go down and let the ref (or VAR probably) decide if it's a penalty or not. In my opinion any player who thinks along these lines is no less than a cheat. Going down when a challenge isn't strong enough to take a player is quite frankly pathetic....these bastards need to man up and play with 'respect'....you know, that sign that is prevalent at most games nowadays but does respect stop at 'Racism' ? Any thoughts ?

I saw a great challenge by a Chelsea player at Watford last week,won the ball full on but took the player out too,booked and free kick against him

Never in a fucking million yrs

Daniel James falls over very easily.

Maybe so Doc (I really don't know)....but what's you're opinion on the morality of Mane or any other player who indulges in such activity ?

Harold ,  players have cheated in football ever since the first ball was kicked in anger. If it's not diving , it's a sly dig , an elbow .spitting ,biting,  the hand of Maradona or Henry. The peno that Mane got last weekend was soft but the ref had the benefit of VAR and still gave it. On the other hand, refs are booking players for so called diving when it is sometimes the player tripping over his own feet .

Sadly it's the way of the game nowadays. It's totally immoral imo. One of the greatest players ever to grace the game, Lionel Messi doesn't dive, the reason he gives is that if he stays on his feet he often has a chance of scoring (which he often does). I would like to see it punished heavily. That cunt at vile Grealish is the worst offender i have seen recently, tho he isn't getting away with it in the EPL.

Yep, I realise that mate but I was using the Mane incident as a particular talking point mainly because of what he said.

It's a stupid thing to say ,even though he said he was joking , a referee might have a seed of doubt the next time he falls over, but Liverpool fans , like all fans will condone their  player  doing whatever he wants   if he bangs in 30 goals a season. That's the hard truth.

I hate modern day football. I have seriously fallen out with it. It's not too bad in the championship with regards to diving. But the quality of football is not as good. There is nothing worse than a diving cheat, Ronaldo at United got away with so many cheating dives. He used to wind me up so much.

It all started with the common market and the influx of foreigners.
