Annoys me as much as anyone, he's dreadful for it.

He's so not the first or last to do it!

Is there anyone worse at it though? Thatís my only issue. He just seems to stop competing to do a series of very unconvincing dives. Almost like he gets frustrated and completely stops backing himself

Apologies if this has already been mentioned and I've missed it, but as bad as his diving has been this season I think it's a symptom of some of the rough treatment he got last season.  Especially early in the season, he was targeted by opposition players and kicked all over the shop.  Usually with very little protection from referees.

I'm absolutely not saying that it's not his fault or that he's not been going to ground pretty pathetically this season.  But it wouldn't surprise me if it was at least in part a reaction to the treatment he has been on the receiving end of.

Problem with him is that he's not very good at diving or winning fouls. He stays down too long, rolls around and makes too much of a deal of nothing. If he got up an and looked at the ref instead of staying down and holding his face then he might have more success.

I don't get it - are people annoyed that he cheats or are people annoyed that he doesn't cheat better?

If youíre going to cheat then do it properly. Have no issues if he cheats if it actually works.

Tbh itís 2019 and Iíve spent too many years being arsed about divers. Canít muster the guster to be arsed about it anymore let alone stressing out whether or not I deem him a good diver or not.

Heís rubbish at it is the problem. The whole idea of cheating is to gain an advantage and all it does is cost us possession

Itís funny, Iíve never really taken to him as a player. I know heís one of our current best but Iím not overly fussed on his style for some reason.

Great player.

It annoys me how much he goes down but it really isnít that much of an issue as he gives us so much in other departments.

Hey there mister can you tell me what happened to the seeds I've sown
Can you give me a reason sir as to why they've never grown

Maybe try and beat the man first before flopping and diving, wouldn't be as pathetic then, refs are mostly just ignoring him now...
I still despise Clive Thomas..

One of these days he will get a pen awarded, then guess what, he will become only the second player in history to get a retrospective ban for simulation.

Probably, but thereís only a handful of clubs that could afford him.

Do you really think any of the clubs that could afford him would actually want him? In my opinion hes miles off being at that level, he could get there but I think he still has a lot to prove and for the money we'd want I cant see him going anywhere unless he massively improves on his output.

I'm not annoyed. I just want him to play smarter.  As an example,  Pienaar and Arteta were great at drawing fouls. Positioning their body so the foul appears to be committed. Sometimes it was, sometimes it wasn't a foul but more often than not they won the free kick. When you compare that to the way Richarlison goes down like he's been shot and stays down, he's just not convincing.
I don't get it - are people annoyed that he cheats or are people annoyed that he doesn't cheat better?
