I know not everyone here is a fan of football, but for those that are you have to watch this. Absolutely pathetic.


What is this idiot doing, surely he can't believe that people are not going to notice how ridiculous he looks? Especially the "leap" 34 seconds in :-rofl2

Absolutely ridiculous.....sure the guy took his feet away but there was no really heavy contact....I'd bring in a 'sin bin' like in rugby and send players off for 'simulation' for 10 minutes......I wonder how much a week he's on...but that's another subject LOL....

There should be a panel of, say, 6 people on the touchline and award points out of 10 for distance, style of dive, amount of writhing about, how much mascara runs etc, by holding up number boards, would make football interesting.....

Should be a straight red card for diving.

No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...

It's when they start wearing scuba gear that you need to start worrying, otherwise, 'tis just a game between a bunch of overpaid nobodies... :-rofl2

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.
