Crouch: Gerrard is a diver


Enrico

Recommended Posts

"Foreign players have brought a lot to our game, but that's something you don't want to see.

"I didn't catch Mikel but he has gone down like he's been shot."

A lot was going their way and I think frustration got the better of me

Crouch added: "What I'm thinking is if you go in on Frank Lampard or John Terry would they roll around like Obi Mikel did? I don't think they would have done.

"Would someone like Jamie Carragher have gone down like that? I think it's safe to say that he wouldn't."

====================================

See, he didn't say Gerrard wouldn't have. icon_wink.gif

Franny Lee back in the 60's & 70's was one of the classic divers. Don't recall him being foreign unless you count northerners as foreign (no offence intended to our northern based fans!).

Crouch get over it, you and you alone were responsible for your sending off.

Spot on, Geezer!

Rodney Marsh wasn't too slow when it came to diving either, or Dave Wagstaffe of Wolves either. And more recently, the worst English diver in my opinion has to be Michael Owen (along with Gerrard).

Crouch's pathetic comments are all too typical of Liverpool FC really, totally incapable of accepting they're to blame for anything, and very quick at trying to aportion the blame elsewhere. The w*nkers have been doing this for many years, from their Chairman right down to the classless tw*ts on their websites who've probably never even been to Anfield. F*ckin' scousers, I've got no time for any of 'em aXe.gif

facing some charges on those comments. I didn't think they were racist, but somehow they are. Is Mikel really a doubt for tomorrow?

I don't think his comments were racist, just stupid. I don't think Mikel over-reacted at all - he'd just had 6ft 7in of beanpole launched at his lower body, the impact alone would shake the bloke up. If Crouch had connected in the way he intended, Mikel would very likely never play again.

And, as others have mentioned, plenty of British players dive too. I'm all for instant 5 match bans for anyone caught diving, with points deducted for the players club after a second offence. Managers might feel a bit more inclined to stamp it out (no pun intended) with those kind of penalties.

I've got the solution! The ref should have one of these inflatable toys in his backpocket and when someone dives, it's an instant yellow card and the player has to wear something like this for the rest of the game:

First the player has to go off the pitch to fill the toy with air while the game goes on without him. Once the player is ready and wearing the toy, he has to wait for the ref to allow the player to return to the game.

- But ref, I can't wear that. I'd look ridiculous...

- You already did son! Now get on with it.
