I am opposed to this fashion in today's game. I would like to see all divers and proven cheats red carded, even if they are players of United.

I was going to work on this weekend and had the football on the radio. It was Chelski & Liverpool. The Keeper had collided with Crouch and both needed treatment and the game had stopped. Gerrard took the free ball, to pass back to the keeper, but he hit it in such a way that Cuddicini had to be quick. I strongly spspect (and so did the commentators on the radio) that he actually tried to score! This is grossly unfair if true and is classed as cheating. I still have not seen the incident for myself but both radio men thought he tried to sneak a free goal by cheating.

I think this sort of behaviour drives fans mad and unforunately it's happening all too often.

The world Cup is almost over and we have seen some prime examples of diving & cheating, Portugal being the worst of a bad bunch. What a waste of such a prestigious competition, degraded into who cheats best.

It's been sickening. Both finalists are guilty of playacting, and Portugal are even worse. Germany hasn't been too bad from what I recall.

Really, though, FIFA ought to do something about Portugal and the others. A ban after re-watching the game, perhaps?
