Ronaldo and Scolari having a laugh

Ronaldo had some ridiculous dives yesterday that should have resulted in a card or two. I especially liked the one where he leaned into a French player and then fell down prompting even Domenech to make the diving gesture. Now Ronaldo has the temerity to complain that he was fouled and a penalty was not given. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/articles/sport/worldcup2006.html?in_article_id=394257&in_page_id=1892&in_a_source There is no way for him to return to Man U. I liked the catcalls and the hate filled interviews with England supporters after the match on Sky Sports. Bon debarras tricheur!

  • I know ,this is pretty disgraceful. bad reffing indeed, my only complain is the ref not booking more of the diving Portuguese. FIFA clearly have given up that rule as since the Portugal Holland game, no-one has booked diving to keep the card count respectable. But as FIFA havent publicly announced it they look inconsistent.

  • FIFA should have no qualms about singling out the grotesque Portuguese. I don't want to hear the "everybody dives" excuse.

    Every team had a one or two players who were guilty of unfair play, every one. But with the Portuguese it was the squad. Not one of those playacting tits conducted themselves with even a shred of dignity and now that they're reviled by the English press or the local fans in the stadium--booing was far too loud for it to have just been the French support--, they're moaning again about how unfairly they've been treated. Run out of Munich by a mob with pitchforks and torches is what they deserved, the cheating gits!

  • I fully agree Steve and it cost Ronaldo his award today - good. Let him rot. Scolari today defended ROnaldo as not being a diver. if Ronaldo isnt a diver then no-one is - he was the worst, worse than Robben even , not that Robben deserves an award for he was as bad as ever.
    Beckenbauer calling for changes, Wenger calling for video replays and I hope he deals with reyes at Arsenal next season - I really want to see people stand up to this crap as its blighted a good world cup - well that and the negative tactics.
