Tottenham are coming of two good wins, kinds worried for Chelsea and we're playing at White Hart Lane. Draw would be enough for me.

What are we classifying dives as? The ones like Bale today where he doesn't get touched and goes down? Those are disgusting. But the ones where you do get touched and go down, I don't really mind, because sometimes it kills your chance to score or get in a good position and the referee will only give you the penalty/free kick if you go down.

I hear people saying, "yes he was touched, but he could have stayed up". But why stay up if you have lost a big advantage because of a foul?

Spurs are gonna take a beating. AVB ran his mouth about us for the whole summer. It's time to shut his ass up once again. He's getting too big for his boots once again. We'll be his reality check though.

A Lampard winner would be sex.

I'd still classify the soft takedowns as dives as well since it's still trying to decieve the ref into believing you got caught much more than you did but yeah slightly more acceptable than outright cheating since more times (not always though) those would be called for fouls anyway so the guy going down easy made no real difference. Still it should all be cut out tbh.

i classify a dive as hitting the deck with no contact or very minimal contact.

Steven Gerard on the other hand.....

I usually imagined Stevie G being more useful in old age than Frank. He always was a more contributing midfielder. Frank was better in defence and making runs into the box but Gerrard would contribute more to the overall team

I still think Frank has alot to offer, just not in the pivot. If hes to be played, its as CAM. Those late runs of his into the box are still beauties

I always thought of it being the other way round.

Gerrard tends to drag Liverpool with a bursting run before unleashing a rocket and carrying the side. As he gets older he will lose that explosiveness.

Where as Lampard seemed the less mobile of the two, for me.

Frank was less involved in overall team play but when making his runs into the final third, youd think hes a born striker.

That was always his greatest strength. He wasnt as fast, but he knew how to time those bursts and runs and get those goals
