    The handball goal was not cheating. The referees should be pulled up about that. Any player would have done exactly the same thing. If we consider that cheating, every throw on or corner, people should only be putting their hand up if its their corner 100%. Again, its up to the refs to be in the position.

    However, too many incidents where he is yet again in the floor for no stupid reason. Pathetic person.

    Suspensions should be enforced. Even as an Arsenal supporter, and noticing (Reyes mostly), it needs to be kicked out. English football prides itself on honesty, unlike Serie A & Primiera ligua (however you spell it).

    I do believe though, that when having the ball, it's ok to be forced into a foul and to get something out of it. Thats tactical and clever play.

    ^^Obviously the handball was cheating regardless of how many players do it it is still cheating. The worst part is the dishonesty involved in it all and the example that sets to the kids.

    Another thing is football is a billion pound industry yet results can go one way or another because of cheating and poor refereeing and this is all too common. Think about the amount of money bet in football on results and first scorer etc! Surely such a financially intensive game should gets its act together from all corners.

    We all know cricket is the best sport, deep down. (Very deep for some people.)
    Certainly is for sportsmanship. Either that or snooker. :p:

    Best game so far now is without doubt the 5-0 tonking of Grimsby yesterday.

    I personally think it could go either way. I know I'm a Watford fan so my opinion is going to be a tad biased, but I do think Watford have a chance of finishing 2nd. I think at the moment its a bit too close to call, maybe wait for another 1 or 2 games to be played first.

    After the results yesterday, I am slightly more confident. 3-0 home win, although Saints are very poor, was just what we needed and Stoke and Millwall did us a favour too.

    Can't really predict what will happen as anything can in this league but these are the fixtures remaining for Blades, Leeds and Watford and I'll have a go anyway!

    Blades:
    Stoke away L
    Hull home W
    Cardiff away D
    Leeds home W
    Luton away D
    Palace home D
    = 87 points

    Leeds:
    Hull away D
    Plymouth home W
    Reading home D
    Sheffield United away L
    Crewe home W
    Preston away W
    = 83 points

    Watford:
    Palace away L
    Luton home W
    Wolves away W
    Ipswich home W
    QPR away D
    Hull home W
    = 85 points

    Oh I dunno!

    You obviously don't hear the things that come out of some bowlers mouths though. :p:

    Anyway, the handball I can let slide, but that foolio admitted that he dives, and that shouldn't be allowed.

    Congratulations Reading. You finally got Berkshire on the map for football!

    I think they will stay up too - more of a Wigan than a Sunderland. Handy for them getting promoted because they're near to me and have relatives in Berkshire and have seen Reading play at their old home, Elm Park.

    I don't watch much cricket though there was some fiasco regarding some bowling a few months back. Okay then - bowls, croquet, petanque.

    I somehow think Portsmouth WILL stay up, much to my dismay. I still think my City can stay up, and we are always capable of pulling results out of the bag late on.
