Coventry City, AGAIN ??
« on: October 23, 2021, 10:13:49 PM »
WTF, clear simulation for the penalty. Thought I was watching ours all over again until I realised it was Derby today. Surely they’ll pull this up as well, won’t they ??

This is horrible - their team is trained to do this… when will the whole club get docked points? The player obviously needs to be banned AND THEN dock the club points. At least Derby tied it up.

It’s the same player that got banned for the dive against us. He’d been back from his ban less than 20 minutes when he dived again…..

Tell me he’s getting investigated again and will receive another ban.

Doesn’t look to be a dive to me. The defender clipped him.

Its hard to tell he might catch his right leg, not a blatant as the one against us

He orchestrated the foul. Not a dive but he cheated …. same as most forwards do.

Not as clear-cut and obvious from the angles on show here.  You could see clear space between Robinson and their player against us.

Good to see the punishment worked. Make an example of him.

i just watched on you tube and they replayed it . got to say he went down too easily for me . was it the same player ? they obviously need watching closely by the powers that be . a touch does not always constitute a foul after all we all know its a contact sport . if its the same fella you got to think he knows no better or its being drilled into him to do it.

The player was waiting for the first slightest touch and down he went.  Grr. Leopards and spots?  :022:

It is the same fella, he was 19 minutes into his first game back after his 2 game ban for diving….

I would briefly mention it to the referee before the game or if not allowed when they can hear. When the captains meet to spin the coin at the start, casually mention to the opposition I see you have that diving bas***d playing at number 10 again.

Surely after his exploits against us he is aware that he is a marked man and therefore wouldn't risk the same crime again.
If he has then he must be punished to an extent that deters all other cheats.

He will get a 'reputation', Ref's will watch out for his antics, when there are 'genuine' incidents for pens, they won't get them.

He’s already got a reputation but the red didn’t seem to know/bother about it.

I really hope he gets the correct reception when they come to us.

being branded a diver didn't really effect Jürgen Klinsmann did it?
