Could rotate, see what works best.  I recall one of the pre-season games seeing Sandro and Rooney playing up top and working together well, has stuck in the back of my mind ever since as something I want to see more of, assuming Rooney can keep discipline if properly warned by Rhino he'll be pulled if he doesn't.

I wonder how good a manager Niasse could be? If he could instill his never say die attitude on the players he could become the most unorthodox manager ever too...

I mean really? This is the incident they pick?

I still think Dann made zero attempt to play the ball too.

Fucking raging over that ban. Underlines how it's one rule for certain clubs and different rules for others.

No way that's a dive. Scott Dann makes no attempt to play the ball. Fucking joke. Hate the FA, hate modern football and hate Danny Murphy.

It's a clear dive, regardless of the contact and Dann's attempt to block him off.

The real problem is that even bigger dives have gone unpunished.
I didn't even remember I had a signature.

100% that is why I'm angry.

Hey, look Willian goes down under a nudge for Chelsea and they've got a penalty and the opposition player sent off.

Should we expect a media meltdown..?



(Yes, I realize it's the CL not the PL but again it's the bigger point of appearance of consistency).

Do you think Dann did anything that could be construed as a foul there? I do think Niasse when down on purpose, but I think he thought he'd been fouled (and the chance was disappearing) so he was asking the question as players know they don't get anything for a foul by staying on their feet.

Perhaps just American tinfoil hat stuff here, but do you all suspect Hodgson's residual contacts within the FA played a role here?

From behind, it looks a dive. Close up on the front, you can see why he went down. It was a soft pen, but no way does that warrant a two game ban.

I actually donít think itís a dive to be honest. Heís gone down easily but there was clear contact and Dan made no attempt for the ball. Itís a grey area at best and certainly not a retrospectively punishable offence
