      So you think a repeat of last weekend's fall is advisable?

      Do you think believing the media hype surrounding Newcastle and Brighton is right?

      Sad that

      I'm sure if someone looked hard enough, they could find tons of occasions where Mo was fouled (kicked, grabbed, pulled, etc) but tried to carry on and ended up with nothing. 

      Which was in my opinion why he was getting those pens but if people like it or not the landscape has changed a bit now. The microscope is on him. I just want us to be smart. I don't give a f**k about us being honest.

      My point is Mo has become a talking point for taking a tumble so he would be unwise to carry on.

      We have 9 other outfielders though who if given a similar oppertunity to Salah v Newcastle who would probably get a penalty for us.

      Salahs card however has been marked.

      Brighton was a nailed on pen. Newcastle was very soft. Palace was diving. There's nothing to believe or not believe in its there to see on the pitch.

      So two penalties rightly given

      One not which he didn't actually claim, he immediately continued playing

      You like Danny f**king mills and Graham Poll are creating a story around him

      He didn’t appeal against palace the penalty wasn’t close to being given.

      I agree that the spotlight is on him though

      I would tell him to put his arms out in front of him so it’s more natural when he is falling!

      Maybe a girly scream like Hazard so thr ref knows?

      Sod it, who cares? Ultimately we won and still scored 4 goals, even without a penalty. Yet some people are trying to take a moral high ground over Salah and his apparent dive that he didn’t even attempt to claim as a penalty and was immediately trying to keep hold of the ball when he went down. Salah is very good at backing into players and then using his strength to get past them in tight spaces, perhaps it’s a case that he tried backing into Sakho but didn’t realise Sakho wasn’t there so therefore fell onto the ground?

      Mountain out of a mole hill being made. As for the other “dives”, was there, or was there not contact? Arsenal - Sokratis fouled him twice, Newcastle - kicked and pulled back
      Brighton - fouled multiple times on the penalty award.
      If teams are thinking he’s diving, then why the hell are they trying to constantly grab hold of his arm or shoulder in the box every time he gets past them?
      If you want to see a dive then look at Vardy, look at Kane, look at Maddison and look at Pogba, no contact made on any of them. But of course, that doesn’t fit the agenda does it.

      Bit rich coming from Danny f**king Mills too, the man who admitted to laying on the ground to get Ronaldinho sent off, even though he was barely touched.

      Fair play mate - and you’re entitled to ‘em.

      Just for balance though that’s not entirely consistent with suggesting those who don’t agree are being tribal is it?

      Outside the penalty area, a player is running with the ball, another player brushes his arm, he goes down.

      Free kick yellow card.

      (From Saturday)
      Salah is in the penalty area, Sakho grabs him, kicks him, puts his arm across him and tries to push him backwards.
      Salah goes down.
      No penalty, no card.
      The media whip up a false frenzy while also displaying staggering hypocrisy (Kane and Alli), Shearer mounts his soap box (dirty foreign cheating bas**rds, but "our boys" are free to do it).

      LFC fans who should know better jump aboard the bandwagon and continue to feed the fake media shitstorm.

      Well done.

      First of all - Sahko didn’t grab him or push him etc etc and any touch on the ankle was sleight if anything - none of what happened to Salah should have resulted him going down on the floor - it wasn’t a foul or a pen etc - it was all exaggeration by Salah - that’s nothing to with believing media hype etc that’s seeing it happen. Don’t give a monkeys about what’s Shearer etc where saying - only a couple of weeks ago they were praising him for staying on his feet against Bournemouth when he was clattered on his Achilles

      He just has to be careful - the last thing he needs is to get given the rep and refs will see it and he stops getting decisions or he ends up with a ban - the media do have plenty of power of persuasion, refs analysed the match and all concluded it was a dive - other pens he has got we’re soft but the touch was sufficient enough to result in a penalty

      No one is “feeding a fake shitstorm” etc etc - Mo has started to go down far too easily - you can see it and it’s just needs to happen, if there is no ammunition for the media then it goes away

      I think what he meant is that some pundits just create a sh*t storm for the sake of it, especially with non english players. When Kane dives they say ''well, he is being clever, it's a tactic'', when some non English player does it they go on a rant on how they are ''destroying the game'' or what not bullshit.

      Dives are part of the game now, it p*sses us off but we have to accept that more and more players are doing it maybe out of desperation to try to win the game somehow or in a form of tw@ttery.

      I've watched it in HD over a dozen times now.
      Sakho's right arm comes across Salah, pushes backwards on his left shoulder.
      That's a fact.

      I don't give a f**k about the refs, trying to rustle up a few quid by jumping on a bandwagon and being media whores.

      It's as much a penalty as the one he "won" after VAR intervened in the FA cup.
      The fact that the tw*t pundits are only concentrating on the kicks and not on Sakho's use of his arms tells me this is just another campaign by "Engerlund" press, and another bandwagon for drama queens to make a meal of.

      Sorry Swab, but I have to disagree.  If a pen was called every time a defender used their hands/arms to jostle with an attacker or push them around a little then there would be 20 pens every game and we would concede as many as we earn.  All defenders do it, and it's not a foul -- it's a physical, contact sport and it's part and parcel of the game.  That wouldn't even be called for a pen in Spain!!

      It's my bad for not explaining myself very well.

      I don't think it was a pen, but I do think he was impeded at least as much as the pen we got in the FA cup for a defender putting an arm across him, which VAR gave.

      I don't think he "went down easily", I think that the arm from Sakho upset his balance even more when he was already off balance.
      He didn't appeal, so he wasn't trying to gain an advantage.

      My golden rule about pens, is that if it's a foul outside the box, it's a foul inside the box, and IMO Sakho didn't really foul him.
      Impeding him a bit is all part and parcel of trying to win the ball.

      Equally though, I don't think Salah dived.

      I've looked at it a load of times, and his balance was off a bit in the moment that Sakho put his hand on his shoulder and kind of pushed him back a bit, which is why he went down backwards.
      He wasn't held, or grappled or wrestled like we've seen so many times before, but the 3 instances of contact from Sakho were enough to throw his balance off.
      No foul, no pen.

      I hope I've managed to explain properly this time  :laugh:

      No Harry - sorry mate have to call you on that.

      If they use their hands it’s a foul. The end.

      They just don’t get given. I’ve much more sympathy with a mistimed tackle than a stray arm/pull etc - that’s just straight up cheating whether ya or anyone else.

      Skrtel conceded plenty and let’s be honest really should have had more given against.

      All fair points, but in this particular instance both players were using their hands, Salah was trying to hold Sakho off, and Sakho was trying to get past.

      For me - when the object is to impede progress it’s a foul.

      That’s not football.

      I agree, but in this case both players were trying to impede each other imo

      I think that defenders get away with an awful lot, both in terms of fouling the opposition, and in terms of going to ground too easily.
      There's a conception that if a defender goes down, it must be a foul, and the same scrutiny is not applied to them, as it is to attackers.

      In this particular case, there was a lot of contact, both from Salah and Sakho, but it didn't merit a foul either way for me.
      Just 2 players tussling for the ball.
