Ashley Young - To Dive Or Not To Dive?

Ashley Young - To Dive Or Not To Dive?

Some say a penalty AND a dive (ie it was a pen but the theatrics did him no favours) others are screaming diving cheat!



Even Sir Alex Chewalot said he played for the penalty and made a meal of going down.

I think if he'd just gone down normally on the first part of the challenge, he'd have still had a good shout, as did Ray Wilkins and Dwight Yorke, the second leg 'looking' to make contact though, that is pure cheating surely?

My biggest irritation is how "sensible" McLeish was. For the sake of fighting against these divers, someone has to have the guts to say "YOU CHEATED" and take the consequences of an FA trial.

We all know what Ash is like, however at Villa he used to only get free kicks, he was usually booked for diving in the box so moving to Utd has helped him there. I wish people would focus more on Huttons attempt to challenge him before Ash got in the box, how can you miss a tackle by about 2 metres???

It was a penalty, but Young dived theatrically and is therefore a cheat...no class...and the same goes for any teams players, including Villa, if they do this sort of thing.

As stated by Lerner he's done it for years, much to my embarrassment. I was happy he left. Nice of him to celebrate the penalty going in as well. I'm beginning to dislike him as much as I dislike Downing

9.5, 9.5, 10.0, 9.5, 10.0. Tom Daley would be proud to have Young as a partner. We knew he'd do that, though, didn't we??

Disgraceful dive. It's bad enough that he had the gaul to do it at all but against the team that made him the player he is! I don't want city to win the league but it's cheats like Young that ake me wish United would fail.

How funny would it be if next time we play utd all the fans have a board like they do at the cricket with the 4/6 on either side. We could have a 9 and a 5 board and all hold them up every time he goes down!! That would at least make it a bit funnier
