Re: Soccer Dives

Thanks for that IL. I am in the uni computer lab cracking up and these nerds don't get why.

Cantona at the end was hilarious and that last one they looked at each other and then fell at the same time.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Soccer Dives

my favorite was the south korean/ japanese (?) player that after a push did four sausage rolls on the grass.

Re: Soccer Dives

It comforts me to know that Henry would never have tried that when playing for Arsenal. But apparently it is OK when playing for France. Of course now that he is with Barca, he and Ronaldinho and Messi can compare notes and take their diving skills to new heights. Of course, he still needs to adopt a feminine hair style to make the 3 stooges complete.

Re: Soccer Dives

The curse of the game... but still very funny.

There have been a few funny tv adverts focusing on diving:

Here's one: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=TpXEa1gzBI0

And here's another [my personal favourite!]: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=T8YL8Q3h_Zs

He took a few dives for Arsenal, the most recent one was last year in the CL

Re: Soccer Dives

I remember watching this one live and thought this was a 9,5 from the judge.

Jürgen Klinsmann at his best and the Finnish commentary is great as well. Watch after he goes down. Sammy the Seal at Seaworld would be proud.

Re: Soccer Dives

Klinsman could have won the World Championship in long jump, high jump and also the Oscar that year

Re: Soccer Dives

He would have won the triple jump as well on that effort.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Soccer Dives

Do referees ever look at tapes and see how easily they are fooled? It would seem not.

Re: Soccer Dives

The Rivaldo incident against Turkey was hilarious .

This was Gilardino against Celtic in last season's champions league:

The dive was so bad it was comical.

Re: Soccer Dives

Wouldn't you love to see a referee so doubled over in laughter that he could hardly get the card out of his pocket?

And only an English commentator would think to say that the dive looked posthumous.
