    Since when was football a contactless sport?

    You seem to be going round in circles bruv and tieing yourself in knots.

    No need mate ... Vardy became the first player to score 11 goals in consecutive games in the same Prem season... that was back as far as 2015/16..

    Richarlison became the first player cited for retrospective action before a diving panel review ... more recently.

    Both are firsts mate ... <cheers>

    Name one.

    And it isn’t him btw, and he didn’t get any action taken against him for that, which was when he was at Watford.

    We’ve not had a penalty awarded for a foul in the box for over a season ffs.

    No contact pens are a thing of the past.. The most disgusting sportsmanship in football is gone.. Goon down holding their faces when there's zero contact and players being sent off for it is gone.

    That's the point I'm making... At no point have I said VAR is great and I've said I don't agree with this handball rule.

    All I'm doing is making my opinion known that I'm happy for the good things it's got rid of.

    I think var has gone too far... Some middle ground needs to be established... Its all a bit silly...it needs work.

    That's ****ing ridiculous. I wouldn't blame Moureen if he put out the under 21s. To play 4 games in a week is a joke

    Try and deflect with irrelevant nonsense all you like. but Vardy goes down easier than a 20 note crack whore.

    Yes, accused of diving and got a 2 game ban for doing exactly what Vardy has done about 4 times already this season.

    He remains one of only 2 players to ever get done for it.

    i tell you who should get done for diving. VVD going down easier than neymar to buy some free kicks in defence. The mans even more embarassing the drogba.

    Who is trying to deflect? ... Vardy beats the last defender to the ball and invites the contact ... nowt wrong with that as far as I see it? ... not like he's flinging himself down all over the park and getting pulled for it by diving panels or getting told by his manager to pack it in? ... Tomdalison is not the first Brazilian to fling himself down all the time tbf ... try not to be so sensitive about it bruv ... doesn't look good; what with you in your lofty position (.. on the high board) enall <laugh>

    Richarlison don't dive, he just can't stay on his feet cos he's bang average.

    Yeah ‘inviting the contact’ the new euphemism for diving to win penalties.
