not one United fan have posted about Cazorla and yet you decide to bring his name up for no reason? or should we just name all teams that have had a player that dived and got a penalty for it? it's going to be a long, long list.

Every dive is just as pathetic.

Oh well, United will always be the most hated team simply because we're the best

You guys have a good point about nobody caring if he was British, as that's the absolute 100% truth, but he dove and that's that in this instance.
I know he doesn't exactly fit your criteria....but this is bullsh!t....people were talking about Bale diving just a few weeks ago. Its now the go to defense for any "foreign players" team to say when a player gets called out for a completely obvious dive.

No it isn't. Look up the discussion after Bale's disgraceful dive against Villa and see what you find. Not a single thing during the game and nothing after until I posted something for one of the most clear and ridiculous dives you'll ever see, when Guzan had a canyon of space between both him and Bale. Gerrard used to dive all the time and everyone would keep schtum and criticize Ronaldo instead, sorry but there's a clear double standard and it just so happens to be with foreign players, perhaps it's because the commentators villainize the foreigners and don't say much about their countrymen doing it, hm?

Cant remember how many years ago it was now, i think it was 09-10 season and Hull were playing someone. One of the foreigners dived and the commentator had a fit and said "one of his teammates should pull him aside and tell him that isnt how we do it here in England". I had a good belly laugh at that one.

If Everton has a diver, i suppose it'd be Jelavic, but even he stays up because he realizes the chance of Everton actually getting a penalty are slim to none.

This thread has derailed already. Hopefully the Sunday games get it back on track. I have a feeling they will

Phil Neville had a doozy against Liverpool.

The Brits just hate diving because most of their players lack the technical skill to properly execute a dive.

Cazorla just overestimated the length of the defenders leg.

The big day is here... not overly optimistic considering Anderson, Nani, Vidic, Kagawa, Valencia and Cleverley most likely wont be playing. I think it will end in a draw.
