The biggest cheat in English football? Discuss...
that honour goes to Dirk Kyut.
but he definitely is a moanin faced bastard.
penalty... what a joke! how in hell was that worthy of a free goal, madness!
lucky lucky 'pool!
I knew he was going to get the penalty, Steven Gerrard Liverpool captain at Anfield - dead cert! Atlético deserved the 3 points though definatley
Liverpool kinda did deserve it a lot more.
but then I did miss a little bit of the first half, yeah Liverpool had a lot of possession but didnt create a load of clear cut chances
their coverage was sickeningly sycophantic tonight, I doubt they could have got any further up Gerrard's arse. And Jim Beglin is a complete wanker.
will get anywhere near the champions league this season?
If my team (Arsenal) carry on like this! Might depend on who you buy in the January transfer window and improve your away form
'gerard is the best!!!
the best shoteer in the world...
shop up fucking idiots'
I fucking adore him.
and another guy in the box said to watch Gerrard from the start as when the ref makes his first free kick decision, no matter which way it goes, Gerrard will have a word with the ref. And lo and behold, he did.
Considering he was the one that clattered into the Madrid fella, I'd have to say most of the blame should go the referee's way - had he ever officiated a game before?
He's an inspiration to Englishmen across the lands.
A true success story. Risen through the ranks to become one of the most (deservedly) celebrated players of our time.
And he's going to lift the Premiership trophy this season too, so y'know. Get used to his gorgeous smile and huge, strenuous muscles.
all our recent legends started out as blues. old news.
is carragher a legend then? or fowler considering he won nothing and liverpool should have high standards
hey! tell me about your non-league side you support.
Actually: don't bother.
along with all the rest of the City fans who assumed that these rich Arabs would give you some glory. Not even becoming the richest club in the universe will get you any higher than 6th.
I hear Manchester Royal infirmary needs half a million to keep their cancer ward open - hope he chips in
but it's probably true
and yes, they could do worse than to invest in civic pride esp. as City is the REAL Mancunian's club
in that Gerrard went to head the ball, never made contact, and got a penalty for it.
made of paper
Yes he is.
Another kissinginkansas stupid opinion. Gather round, everyone! kissinginkansas has a stupid opinion to share!
i've seen him dive, dive and dive and NO COMMENTATOR picks up on it. my apathy towards his blatant cheating turned into sheer rage and disgust when i saw him dive in a friendly against the usa.
horrible, horrible footballer.
the biggest cheat in English football. If anyone else did what he regularly does, they would be vilified.
Oh well, whatever happens, the baby will never be his.
then so am I.
is absolutely atrocious. bet the papers gloss that over just a little bit tomorrow. just saw it and i can't quite believe he got it.
... so passionate about being non-liverpool fans?
United and Chelsea fans are obsessed with Liverpool.
I think Ronaldo is a diving scumbag cheat, but I don't obsess over it and make topics on the internet. I've got my own team to worry about. Yes, it was a soft penalty tonight, but if it doesn't concern you, then shut up.
Worry about your own team and stop pointing out every little bit of luck Liverpool get.
word. The bias towards the Sky 4 in this country is ridiculous and it's killing football.
You haven't even played us for a decade...
Atletico were robbed tonight
and the Liverpool fans in the pub I saw it in were unsufferably smug bastards about it
still not sure i understand...
stevie gerrard flies through the back of the athletico defender, flails around and gets a penalty?
i fucking hate liverpool.
but in the words of the rolling stones (with john and paul on backing vox):
weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee loooooooooooooooooooooooove you
moaning about Gerrard getting a penalty is about as good as it gets. He's a fucking hero, deal with it.
scum to lift the European Cup you mean? Sure you do...
pretty much everything you write in football threads is about them. Maybe just focus on your own teams miserable plight, I'll shoulder the burden of supporting the most successful British club in Europe ever. Ok?
Oh yeah, that's right, you've NEVER won it.
You're obsessed! Jesus Christ.
I love how he pulled out the 'premier league' thing.
When was the last time Forest won anything at all?
Didn't think so.
But it meant that the gang of Liverpool haters in the pub near me got angry, which made me happy.
Liverpool about to lose in the last minute at Anfield, what a surprise, they get a penalty. Stupid referees should have more guts.
to give the two clear penalty decisions before that one too.
we all know there would be about 8 penalties a game if you started giving them for slight fouls, epecially aerial challenges, it's usually half and half anyway, everybody pulls each other about.
Remember John Terry only got a yellow for a rugby tackle against Man City!
Sometimes football is unfair. Deal with it. It's part of the game. You win some, you lose some, it's all the same to me.
Dah na na na

why do you think it got recsinded? Obviously you know the rules better than the people that make them. A referee can make mistakes in games but when a decision is appealed and overturned it's very different.
stop being a big baby and throwing your toys out of the pram because De Rossi spanked you over his knee last night.
Yes, it was a dive, yes I don't approve, yes it was unjust. It is slightly acceptable because there was one very clearcut penalty decision which didn't go our way, but that's inconsequential. We got lucky.
But luck happens in practically every game, one way or another. Chelsea have had stuff go their way many times; so has every club and team.
You just look for a fight at every opportunity because you're that kind of prick. Which is why you've never got laid and never had any success with the ladies, most likely. Just quit your howlin'. There's more important things than one referee decision in football.
bit over the top don't you think? Getting personal when I haven't even done anything except debate the decision and your opinion that Terry's red card should have stood.
"I look for a fight at every opportunity" haha, if you ever met me in real life you'd realise how ridiculous that comment is. I like I debate sure and like to think I'm right most of the time, but I prefer to chill out, getting angry and picking fights is wasted energy as for as I'm concerned.
and don't even start to deny it.
and I guess that involved provoking. I don't do it anymore, I haven't done for a couple of months. So if I still seem provocative, then I must just come across this way on the internet, for some reason.
especially the emo threads.
But the fact it's Dom Gourlay posting this is the least surprising thing in English football.
and watch footage of the cheating scouse one over the years.
That's right, I'm the blinkered one.
But he gets away with it because only foreign players dive innit.
it was a bit of a milked tumble (dive if you will) but he got to the ball first, other guy comes in and makes contact, you'd give it a go in the 94th minute wouldn't you?
It looked as though the referee was determined not to give a penalty all game so it was a bit surprising.
wow, he scored a late equaliser AGAIN, from a penalty which most of the Liverpool team could've scored. He won it himself aswell, fuck the fact that it wasn't a penalty and a blantant dive.
terrible for most of the second half. Constantly shooting wide and getting tackled.
Disclaimer: I did not catch the first half.
Teaching Gerrard to dive. I blame Karl-Heinz Riedle.
you could say that about most of the premiership
but I saw the "foul" on the news this morning. Absolutely pitiful. If you're going to take a dive at least execute it with a bit more creativity, instead of just lunging in front of the player with the ball.
Can you hear the scousers sing? Nooo, Noooo
'Another magical European evening at Anfield'
how can their fans criticise anyone else for not singing?
you make Boro look like drugged up Italian lunatic fans.
I don't know how Gerrard has the balls to accuse others of cheating. I really don't.
he would do every cruciate ligament in his body when he took that penalty.
hahaha that wasn't a dive. He did go down rather easily but dive ? noooo don't think so. And you'd all love him in your teams so stop whinging eh !
Look at him, if anything it was a foul by Gerrard. He hits the defender, waves his arm in the air and then goes down with an expression on his face as if he's had rectal prolapse.
even wiped his hand on Luis Garcia's back slyly when he hugged him at the end.
that the liverpool kit was read.
and hardly a first for Gerrard. I'm amazed anyone's trying to deny it, tbh. If that had been Ronaldo, Liverpool fans would be creaming themselves with indignation.
in dying seconds of the game. Hardly a new phenomenon really is it..
not you. gerrard.
its ole stevie.....stevie g'ers.....stevie stevie steve....what a boy ole stevie g.
