Mo Salah`s dive yesterday, about

as blatant as it comes, yet the officials did nothing, and there is no retrospective action being taken. The authorities serious need to have a look at this player. Sure he scored a great goal yesterday, and this is not a personal vendetta against him. But game after game, he dives, especially when he is in the penalty area.

It would be called serial cheating in any other sport? Other players do it as well, but no current player, not even Sterling tries it on as much as Salah. The sad thing is, he is getting away with it.

What can and should happen to cut out this cheating, trying to gain an unfair advantage to win a game of football?

Sometimes it is difficult to take action against a cheat because when there is contact it is very difficult to prove it wasnt a dive or that the contact was enough to bring a player down. Many players make more of the contact than is necessary to gain an advantage

In this instance when there is 100% no contact then surely that's what the whole retrospective punishment is all about. To punish blatant cheating when there is unequivocal evidence.

I dont care who the player is, whether is Alli or Salah or anyone....FA grow some balls and bring an end to this pathetic cheating which i am now seeing every week when i watch my sons U9s team.

Is there 100% proof there was no contact?
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Well unless you are blind, then yes there is.

I don`t think this incident was mentioned either. How do Liverpool keep getting away with this sort of behaviour. They got a slap on the wrist for attacking the Man City coach last season. Then follow up with this.

Yep attack the city coach and then over s year later follow-up with this.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Disgraceful behaviour that is never condoned by Liverpool supporters. Sorry mate but your supporters reputation goes back to the 1970s.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

I've seen loads condone the actions of the one person that threw the flare Sandy. Loads. Not so much the bus because frankly, who cares?
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Well actions that are criminal, everybody should care.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Nothing better than faux outrage on here. Love it.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Hardly mate, if you are happy with violence at football matches then fine, but don`t tar as all with the same brush. The 70s and 80s stuff must never be allowed to come back.

I'm not happy about violence anywhere. At the same time, I'm not too fussed about a bus being hit with a couple of plastic bottles. I'm certainly not going to put it alongside the real issues of violence that occurred in the 70's and 80's like you do.
