Even if you compare him to someone like Adama who fly's through challenges and won't go down unless he has to. Grealish is built, he has huge legs, he doesn't need to go down at every touch but he does

The problem with diving  is  there is a advantage to be gained. You can’t watch a Villa game without the commentators talking about the amount Jack wins for his team. Like someone else mentioned it needs reviewing and punishing retrospectively if needs be. 
 

My boss is a big rugby fan (even played at a decent level) and he sees ‘diving’ breaking into rugby. Obviously without the theatrics but there are certain positions that if a player stays down play has to stop. (I think it’s forwards but don’t quote me) so they’ll quite offer pretend to be more hurt than they are to gain an advantage by breaking up momentum or getting a breather for their team

@AnglianRed must really hate this 😉

Yep - this is exactly why I think so many footballers are utter genitalia (male or female - can vary from day to day and depending on my mood).

I wholeheartedly agree with @Redcar Rioja that this kind of crap needs to be penalised with yellow and red cards far more often. Consult VAR if necessary. Although given how it seems to work for other decisions, maybe not...

I think VAR would have sorted that incident out quite easily though there is the risk that they will get others wrong. A sending off and a three game ban to follow however would I think reduce the amount of disgraceful incidents like that one.

Britt's penalty on Saturday is one of those difficult ones where did he feel something or dd he dive?

Isn't there scope for retrospective action on obvious attempts to con the ref? I was sure it was talked about a few years ago but can't remember any time it's actually been used.

It was used on Bamford a few seasons ago for cheating and getting a Villa player sent off despite absolute zero contact.

Problem is, as blatant and pathetic as the dive was, he did get gently tapped on the leg and I can't see them punishing him because of that.

Actually, Adama *** off Rob Holding this weekend for going down too easily lol, one of my favourite things from the weekend.

Well from the front view replay I saw, there did appear to be some contact, but he did go over very easily (in my opinion).

I suppose the issue when / if using VAR is do you go by the letter of the law and ANY contact constitutes a penalty, or can the ref still use some discretion if they think the player should have stayed on his feet?

You'd end diving within a couple of weeks with retrospective punishment. I've been arguing this point for years but no one in football seems to care about it.

It would also be interesting to see how many of the games "Greats" suddenly aren't as great when they get caught and punished for cheating. It's bad enough that they get caught on camera grinning and winking when they get away with it.

    • Is it hard to find good managers that want to play good football?  It would seem to be a weird thing, for me anyway, if all of the on field progress made over the last 30/40 years hasn't lead to a different way of thinking in terms of coaching in this country.  But go foreign or whatever, that makes no difference to me.  It's just about what the manager believes in, and what we as a club are striving for.
    • 😭😭😭 Well aren't you a little ray of sunshine 🙂
    • Oh I agree with that.  But the manager is an integral part of that and we currently have the wrong one for the vision I'd like us to have, that's all.
    • The thing is though, once it actually comes to ‘farting around the championship’, most fans won’t accept it and will once again want the manager out. It’s all well and good wanting to play nice football etc. But at the end of the day, results is what matters and what pleases fans. For what it’s worth I wouldn’t mind going for a long term vision, but as long as we are competing for the play offs. 
    • You're wasting your time if you think Gibson has the ability to change things for the better. This is about as good as it gets.
