There's nothing wrong with their style of play. Just because it isn't Barca esque doesn't make it anti football. Granted they need to lay off the elbowing and stamping but there's teams who are just as dirty on the pitch as Stoke that don't get the same type of attention over it.
Suarez shouldn't be surprised he doesn't get every decision that should go his way when he pulls shit like that dive off. The more he does that, the less and the less he'll get the blatant ones because it plants the seed in the refs mind that he's trying to con a foul all the time.
There is playing long ball football which is fine and what stoke did today which is far from it. Huth needs a 3 game ban for what he did as that was out of order. Also Suarez does dive a lot but he seems to be the only one lately who does not get decisions because of it. There are other divers just as bad. The refs this season have been awful so far.
