Oooh, the Hypocrisy!

Who said.. "We have to fight it and there is only one way to punish people diving obviously: suspension." "Once it is in the game it is difficult to get it out. Once a guy knows he might be punished he will not dive." My view without going into any individual case is that we are all as managers to fight against it," "Sometimes the players dive just because they pushed the ball too far and the only way to get something out of the situation is to dive. "We are all managers who can never say that one of our players has not dived. Nobody can say that in our league. "I can say that when my team are not involved I am 100% against it."

  • Alas with WEnger you have to sometmies interpret what he means - he is saying as a group managers should condone it because individual managers never do and he isnt about to go it alone...
    Drogba right now is league's worst diver - I always had Ronaldo up there but he has cleaned up smoewhat - Ruud is a big diver but then he doesnt play anymore :) and Reyes needs to stamp it out from his game.

  • Arsenal.com are now carrying the same story but have ommitted the controversial part! Arsenal.com sucks.
