Yet agin we see a Premiership official get bad press for a poor decision (Diouff pen last night) but who is really to blame here? who is upping the anti and making life harder for the refs?

Well I reckon some of the current bunch of overpaid so called superstars have got to take a fair share of the blame, particularly the overseas ones.

What Diouff did last night was just another example of blatant cheating. OK players have always seeked to gain an advantage, but this baltant encouragement of officals to make wrong decisons by deception is wrong. If the FA have any b&lls they will be consistent, look at the video eveidance, and then do Diouff for bringing thr game into disrepute.

Just look at the attitude and mentality of some of the players in the game today: Diouff, Anelka, Bellamy, Dyer, Savage, etc etc. In the old days, the players would have handed out their own justice to these people. Norman Hunter would have sorted it.

If the FA are prepared to look at every bit of evidance when a player does what they now term "rasing an arm" then they must look at balntant cheating. How can players like Diouff live with themselves. It may be acceptable in their part of the world but it don't make it right!

I have been quite critical of the F.A. in the past, but I think you will start to see a stronger line being taken against blatant cheating in the fututre, especially with some of the recent changes at head-quarters.

They must also take a stronger line against certain premiership managers who try to influence decisions and make some outrageous comments against officials.

i suggest the use of ice-hockey style 'goons' whose sole job would be to go after the cheats and kick the living bejesus out of them

I think we are losing sight of the Rodney Marsh and a certain Mr Lee who could fall down with the best of them
The difference today is the amount of money available for every notch up the league table
Also lets consider todays ref!s they are not allowed to think for themselves and lose matches and money if the do not abide by the lates FIFA or FA fad in discipline
Jack Taylor would have handled any of todays divers and moaners no problem but he would have been dropped by his employers
Lets have ref!s back in the game who are prepared to think issues out with a modicum of common sense
