    the good ,the bad and the ugly

    There does seem to be a little bit of... I hate to say cheating, so I'll go with "rough & ready with the rules" ;) slipping into our team. It seems they either go one way, and go down too easily around the box (been taking Top 4 lessons boys?), or the other & get too carelessly \physical a la Hudd & VDV. Not a lot mind, but enough to irk me.

    Bentley last week is a great example. I really don't think he was diving, his shirt was pulled and I think it threw him off balance which, combined with knowing the foul was coming, was enough to make him go down, BUT I think he could've stayed on his feet if he'd tried. I guess the sad truth is most managers beat it into their players not to try to stay upright in the area now.

    (by the way, did anyone else think that was a good use of the word irk above? ;) )
