It does happen but it’s rare , there are different levels of cheating and it’s difficult to spot all the time , this isn’t my issue , my moan is why do so called sportsmen have to cheat at all ? 

coz they want to win …...I umpire in the local cricket leagues and cheating is a common practice so it's no surprise that footballers who can influence decisions that can be worth multi millions use  every trick in the book to do so . ………..the days of play up play up and play the game are long gone .

Ideally it would be great, but it's not a realistic plan if we're hoping for promotion next season.

 

Signing talent on the cheap, and being able to flog them for millions is living the dream of any club owner, and a lot easier said than done. 

 

Expecting us to unearth quality lower league players capable of making an immediate step up is akin to playing the lottery to cover your bills instead of getting a job.

 

Someone is going to win the lottery, so why not me?

not necessarily for next season's promotion push, but in general.

the dingles live by unearthing talent, signing it for a couple of £100,000 or so, and letting it go for millions.

blokes a diver  but is he anymore a cheat than the player who handles a goal bound shot and gets away with it or as a slight tug on the shirt of a player who's thru on goal that the ref don't spot  …...I've yet to see one go up to the ref and say "I handled that mate "...……..

imagine how many 'could be sent off' after a corner?

For those comparing Gayle and Forestieri, try actually watching both players, Gayle goes down under no contact whatsoever, Forestieri goes down occasionally under minimal contact, but there's always contact, I don't remember ever seeing him go down when never even touched unlike Gayle.

Agree with most of the above, would be a dream signing but we simply cant afford him.

 

We would need to move on Fletcher, Rhodes and Winnall to make way for him aswell.

 

That said Bruce can pull off the unthinkable sometimes

No thanks, far too much money (and gamble)! 

 

Norwich and Sheff U showed last year, you don't need to break the bank to find the right personnel!

Its a no from me.
Good player for the Championship but breaking the bank for players has already got us into enough trouble last couple of seasons.

Have to box a bit more clever from now on.

I wouldn't want him even if we could afford him.

 

Exactly the type of player that's turning me off football

Summed up my feelings about him as a player

 

there is no doubting he'd bag goals but you'd be constantly face palming yourself when he's a cheating, diving little sh*t ....

Our fans are quite happy rimming Forestieri's arse though.

Some people never learn, another one that got half a reputation, done nothing special, no heart or desire, just dropping in on clubs filling his pockets.
