Cos they're pussies! They won't mic up the refs like in Rugby so the people who pay their wages can hear what they are saying - because foul language and abuse thrown at refs would be heard, whoopsy, red card offence, but very rarely enforced. They don't enforce their rules about mobbing the ref and whingeing like little girls, they said last season that cards would be shown, were they my bollocks.Brilliant! Because everyone keeps breaking a rule, we'll change it. How about just enforcing it?
BBC Sport pundits Danny Murphy and Trevor Sinclair are among the 13 former players, managers and officials who will review alleged dives in English football during 2017-18.
Former England keeper Rachel Brown-Finnis is the only woman included in the Football Association pool.
A three-person panel - chosen from the 13 - will review footage each Monday to look for cases of simulation.
Players unanimously found guilty will be banned under new rules.
This will only occur in cases where the offending player's team has been awarded a penalty or if an opponent has been sent-off where the act of "deception" led to the dismissal.
The FA says it will act "where there is clear and overwhelming evidence to suggest a match official has been deceived".
Each week's panel, who will also consider cases of feigning injury, will consist of one former player, one former manager and one former match official.
Who is in the 13-person pool?
Former match officials:
- Nigel Adkins - former Southampton and Reading boss
- Rachel Brown-Finnis - former England goalkeeper and BBC Radio 5 live pundit
- Terry Butcher - former England and Ipswich defender
- Lee Dixon - former Arsenal and England full-back
- Alex McLeish - former Aberdeen defender and ex-Scotland manager
- Danny Murphy - former Liverpool and England midfielder
- Chris Powell - former Charlton and Huddersfield boss
- Trevor Sinclair - former West Ham United and England winger
- Keren Barratt
- Steve Dunn
- Mike Mullarkey
- Alan Wiley
- Eddie Wolstenhome
Nah, didn't look like match fixing, it just looked like they were using the new 'walking football' tactics favoured by Gareth Southgate.Blimey,this looks shocking.Looks like live in-play match fixing,the other matches had already finished as this game was winding down.
Will they retrospectively punish him for kicking the ball away then???Will the FA panel issue a ban for Kamara's outages dive? Dunno, the ref booked him so it might be one of those stupid cases where they decide the ref has dealt with the incident.
If the ref had fallen for that shocking bit of playacting then the keeper gets sent off and Fulham get a penalty, surely he should be sent off and a penalty be awarded at the other end, that would be fair I reckon and stop all this cheating bollocks.
I know I said I would just read this evening.... but I mentioned this in the last fucking round... VAR can suck my stump.So how does that work fairly?Some cup games had VAR,others didnt,millwall player handballs it into the net,everyone sees the replay in the stadium (that itself is a no,no with the millwall manager signalling to turn it off),should be either all games have it or none IMO.
