GRAHAM POLL'S OFFICIAL LINE: Diving David Ngog should hang his head in shame

10 November 2009 11:48
[LNB]What an absolute disgrace David Ngog was in committing one of the most blatant dives I have ever seen. [LNB]Referee Peter Walton should have a serious look at himself as he really MUST detect such obvious simulation and punish it. [LNB] Come on, dive in: Ngog draws Carsley into the challenge.......[LNB] [LNB] ....and the Liverpool striker times his tumble to perfection.....[LNB]Watching the game on television I immediately called it as a dive - not being clever, just that it was so obvious. [LNB]If UEFA's experiment to introduce six referees proves successful then the additional assistant referee would have been perfectly placed to yell into his microphone and tell Walton, 'It's a dive!' [LNB] .....the arms go up to add a bit of drama.....[LNB] [LNB] ....before the big finish of sprawling flat out....[LNB]Mind you, Walton should be experienced enough to detect it without external help. Ngog should be ashamed of himself. [LNB]The question is - when will football introduce retrospective action to punish such actions?  [LNB] Diving Pool: Birmingham boss Alex McLeish furious as Liverpool's French striker David Ngog cheats to win vital penaltyLiverpool 2 Birmingham 2: Fall guy Ngog cheats to get Rafa off the hookLiverpool 2 Birmingham 2: How the drama unfoldedLIVERPOOL FC
