    Just can't belive this guy.

    Stoke boss Tony Pulis accuses Sunderland’s David Meyler of play-acting
    Published on Sunday 5 February 2012 14:38


    STOKE boss Tony Pulis accused David Meyler of play-acting to get Robert Huth sent off in yesterday’s 1-0 win for the Black Cats.


    “I have watched it twice now,” Pulis said. “Robert has committed himself and then pulled out of the challenge and he hasn’t touched the kid at all.

    “The disappointing thing for me is – and it has become more ingrained in the game – is the reaction of the player. It is something I think Gordon Taylor and the PFA should really get to grips with.

    “You get situations when players are falling around and rolling around when they have not even been touched. For me, when players do that, it is cheating another professional and they are all part of the same union.

    “I find that a disease that we should stamp out as quickly as we possibly can.”

    What did you think of the foul, Meyler’s reaction, and sending off.

    Huth did pull out but, he still caught Meyler with his knees and it was an easy yellow but a soft red probably got the red for intent which is a joke of an excuse.
    As for Meylers reaction it obviously hurt and having just come back from a very bad knee injury he probably feared the worst.
    I also see Pulis has omitted to mention the Fuller tackles which were both much worse than Huths, one of which was on Meyler I think. A very blinkered bloke who seems to go to the same optician as Wenger.

    Is he still bleating on about it?!!!!

    McClean could have chose to go down just before he scored when Shawcross clipped him.

    As for Meyler, Pulis should take a look at the lads knee.

    No of course he isn't blind, he's just a prick.

    I love the way Pulis is giving credit to Huth for pulling out. If he hadn't he'd have killed Meyler.
    As it was it was still a stupid reckless lunge and there was contact.
    I hope they appeal only for the FA to tell petulant Pulis to **** off. And I really hope it's not to long before Stoke do the same.

    Martin O'Neill has defended David Meyler following criticism from Stoke manager Tony Pulis after the 1-0 win at Stoke.

    Pulis criticised Meyler's reaction after the midfielder was fouled by Robert Huth, who was immediately dismissed by match referee Martin Atkinson.

    Pulis also made reference to perceived cheating by players in his post-match interviews.

    O'Neill insists referee Atkinson made the right decision and claimed Huth's challenge left the match official with little choice but to show the red card.

    And he leapt to the defence of midfielder Meyler, who has recently recovered from two successive serious knee injuries.

    "I thought at the time it was a red and I watched the incident back again on Sunday," said O'Neill.

    "It was a poor challenge and given the conditions, the referee had very little alternative.

    "Whilst Tony's point about players in general has got merit, David Meyler is absolutely and utterly not one of them.

    "This young lad has had an injury-stricken career and naturally was doing his utmost to avoid the challenge - he was still caught, though

    I honestly thought it should have been yellow, red was a bit harsh. But saying that, as a player you know that if you go in for a tackle fully committed like Huth did then you have to get the ball, he didn't and he made contact. Doesn't matter that it was his knee that caught Meyler, he still made contact. Also if Meyler hadn't of jumped he would be walking on crutches now.

    Do you think Pulis or even MON would have defended say Cattermole if it were him making that challenge? NO, very much doubt it so **** RIGHT OFF you whinging **** Pulis.

    Can't add anything to this. And nearly all football fans agree too.

    No way a red card for me but there is no way the Sunderland lad was play acting. He did get caught. Huth deserved a yellow because although he pulled out, he still caught him. Given the Sunderland lads history of injuries, he must count himself lucky there was no malice on Huths part and he did pull out.
