Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam has hit back at suggestions he went down too easily under a challenge from Manchester United's Rio Ferdinand at the weekend, insisting he is "not that type of player".
Yes you did you fat lying diving cheating piece of SHIT! http://www.youtube.com/watc...
very convenient starting the video after Rio made the foul, yet you can even see his foot sticking WAY out in the start. and Adam lost his balance immediately. a clip is still a foul in football.
When he gets past Rio he is still on his feet, then he falls to the ground.
like everyone says its hard to keep balance running with a ball and somebody trips you, specially if your a big guy, if he was small and agile maybe he can take it in his stride but he isn't.
the contact was minimal it clearly wasnt enough to bring him down or mess up his stride as he still had his footing after the tackle was mad and chose to go down size has and momentum have no effect when contact is little.. if nani had done this and we won the game from the resulting freekick we would never hear the end of it.. it was a dive just accept it
Dive or not, Man U were crap
Still sore from the past 4 beatings we gave you lot.
there was contact
Yeah but not enough to go down like that, Adam knew Rio was on a yellow card so he deliberately tried to get him sent off. If that was a Man Utd player, you would not be saying that so stop kidding yourself.
I know diving has become a disease almost everyone does it football is going in a wrong direction and Fifa are too lazy to act
Yeah and evra tried to get Suarez sent off earlier but lets conveniently miss that out right? Fickle you utd fans. I admit though he went down way too easy and seems to be Liverpool all over this season especially Suarez.
It's still a dive even if you get a light tap and go down like a ton of bricks.
it was a dive but to be fair he didnt roll around, he got straight back up because he knew what he did.
but they still got a freekick and scored from it.. it douesnt matter if he got str8 up he shouldnt have gone down so easily in the first place
It was Giggs fault they scored though to be fair UTD fans looking to blame ADAM for that goal and the dive instead of the real culprit who was Giggs for jumping out the way of the ball.
@gamer i'm not blaming any1 for the goal just stating that if adam didnt dive it wouldnt have been a freekick.. who knows what giggs was thinking he never should have moved
Yeesh, I didn't know people were so sensitive about diving. Want to see a real master of diving at work, look up CR on youtube.
dive is when you drop, pretending got hit, and wishing the ref gives the other player cards! he got up as soon as he dropped. do you really think running that fast, counting steps so you can put the perfect foot on the ball is easy? seriously... try to play football and you'll find its THAT hard! even if its a no touch by rio, its common to fall. when he start complaining about it then we can call it a dive.
He was looking to get Rio sent off since he was already on a yellow card.
how do you know that? what makes you 100% sure it was intentional? did he mourn or even complaining about it? i mean if he did, rio is surely out. but he didn't. blame the ref for giving it a free kick, dont blame him.
God, you must be stupid.
Im a red and watched the game, there was contact from reo it is there on the replays to see and in our game today if a player feels contact then 9 out of 10 times they will go down. Im sure a united player would of done this if it was the other way round. As much as I hate Liverpool the player did what he did for his team just like any other player would of done. But what people dont seem to see is this is not the reason for the goal. The goal was all Giggs fault he was part of the wall and did not do his job and because of this Liverpool scored. If Giggs had stood his ground it would of hit him and you never know what may of happened after this but at the end of the day united have not beat Liverpool at Anfield for the last 3 years so getting a point with the side SAF put out was a good result for united. Fans need to remember its a long season and we have to win today to keep our selfs in the champions league and we have city at weekend too which are another 2 big games so taking 7 points in 3 games is a good result you need to remember united after this weekend have played all the top sides and if we beat city this weekend have only dropped 2 point after playing the top 5 sides in the league which to me is good going and the other teams still have to play each other. City have not had any hard games yet this season so to me its still in our hands but it is a long season and we are not even half way through yet so anything could happen.
