I think Partick Thistle have a song with similar sentiments.

Maybe so, but at least I don't follow blindly like most Ulster folk, and support Celtic or Stephen Gerrard's Rangers (as they now seem to be called, by BBC).

In my day they were just Glasgae Rangers and Glasgae Seltic. :roll:

The continental habits that Sky money has brought into English football such as diving and excessive grooming and other prima donna behaviour has really turned me off the game there. Yaya toure (on £10 million a year) apparently threw a massive strop because man city didn't sufficiently show their love for him on his birthday. They gave him a cake when he was expecting a sports car. Klopp recently gets fined £8k for encroaching onto the pitch because anything less would be utterly meaningless to a man on his salary.
For reasons like these, I now often find myself watching Scottish games in preference to those in England. They seem to matter more to both players and supporters. It's just a pity that no one there can compete with the old firm and in particular with celtic at this time.

There was diving in all levels of football long before Sky brought their money to the show.

The only difference Sky made was that more of it was seen on TV, and more often too.

And as for holier than thou Britishers who say it was a continental trait, go boil yer heed. The Brits can cheat as well as the best of them.

No you are incorrect, Klinsmann came after Sky.

Compelling evidence indeed WW

Can't argue with that.

That video clip from a World Cup International match between W Germany and Argentina in 1990 does indeed prove beyond all doubt that those devious continentals were the first to ever dive in English football, and that no one in England had ever done it before Klinsmann.

Promenader, you will have to retract your QED because WW has also shown beyond all shadow of doubt that Franny Lee never dived and any time he hit the deck without being touched, was clearly an act of God, or else he was himself actually a bloody foreigner who was way ahead of his time - literally.

The fact that he can be seen practicing HERE when he gets booked for fouling Saint George of Lisnasharragh (at just past the 30 secs) and then living up to his alter ego, Lee Won Pen at 2 mins 50 seconds into the video, is clearly a BBC plot using fake facts and edited footage.

Also the fact that the commentator seemed to think that Franny Lee was suggesting that Best had dived is clearly preposterous, as you have so convincingly proved that diving in English football never existed until many years later, so it would not have entered his consciousness to suggest such a thing.

Clearly, as you have argued so convincingly, that the old adage, "it takes one to know one" could never be used in connection with diving in English footy in the pre-Sky era.

I won't second guess you Captain.
Could you imagine today's players encountering the likes of Norman Hunter or Tommy Smith?
They'd give them something to fall over and writhe about and yet back in the day hardly anyone did.
In the thousands of games played back in the old First division, dives were remarkable because they were so rare.
Hence you having to go back to '71 to find one. Famous it was, the player dived, possibly...
