Liverpool Message Board
Do me a favour - what a load of rubbish!!
Mikels advisors are suggesting his comments could be considered racist!!
Crouchy said what we all think and know - foreign players fall over at the slightest touch and roll around on the ground for an hour or so - its pathetic. What do they think when the see it on MOD?? Personally I think they should be embarressed at being so weak.
Crouchy, you are right - foreign players bring a lot of good to our game - but the diving, faking and pathetic rolling around on the floor is not one of them.
The comments of a racist?? Of course not - more pathetic Chelsea-based ignorance and the FA should give it the treatment it deserves.............a big two fingered salute and tell them to grow up.
Just popped in from the 'Ammers board - I saw this news and figured there would be a thread over here about it.....
Anyway - I thought they were trying to kick racism out of football - comments like this from Mikkel's advisers are creating racism where is doesn't exist.
There was nothing wrong with Crouch's comments, he was only stating the truth! We never had diving and feigning injury until it was brought in by the South American and Italian teams - that is a fact, not a racist statement!
Stand by your guy - he is a decent bloke who very rarely complains about anything.
I doubt Crouch is any more of a racist than anyone else. However, it was a stupid thing to say after a stupid action to get a red card. He and Benitez would be better off not blaming Mikel for being fouled but either just put their hands up and say guilty and sorry, or shut up.
In the match 17 free kicks were given against Liverpool, just seven against Chelsea. Liverpool scored one straight red plus three yellow cards, Chelsea none of either. Representatives of Liverpool should not be trying to blame Chelsea players for Crouch's red card. It makes them look childish.
