The Anfield youngster has defending his Wales team-mate after the Spurs winger was once again booked for simulation during his side's 3-0 Europa League victory over Inter.
6 yellow cards, was it? Yep, he's not a diver, it's all the referee's fault. LOL! Sorry to burst your bubble, Joe, but both Bale and Suarez are divers. However, Suarez has started to refrain from diving the past couple of months, and Bale needs to follow suit.
Didn't you know? He doesn't do it to cheat, he does it to protect himself from serious injury when tackles come flying in at him. That makes it ok. /sarcasm
As I've mentioned in another article, the term "diving" has been customized to "injury-avoiding maneuver" to suit Bale's needs.
How are you mate? /no sarcasm
Him going down holding his eye when Lucas only touched his shoulder was disgusting. But as usual, the BBC match reviewers ignored that and focused on Suarez catching the leg of Dawson late. They're not allowed to tarnish the image of their golden-boy, no sireee, not while he's in the running for POTY.
The replays suggest otherwise ;)
