  • Matt Godden C0ventry banned for diving


    Good to see the FA take some action against cheats, but still not enough given it helped them to come back and win the game. I know it was against Fulham, but it could happen against QPR too.

    I would like to see the game replayed instead.

      Yeah, I saw that later in the evening and thought it was cheating of the highest order and is one of the things in football that I hate most. It needs to be eradicated but a 2 match ban is not going to achieve that, it is far too lenient. I would like a 9 match ban like some players have received for pushing refs etc.

      The authorities consider a player betting on a football match he has no involvement with or inside knowledge on as a more serious offence than cheating to win a game.

            He can't be only diver? Makes me think he only got done cos it was caught from multi-angles by Sky cameras. It's a bit ropey if you only get banned if caught by Live TV cameras, particularly in EFL where 90% of games don't get multi-camera coverage.

              So he should get away with it because others have too?

                    The more bans the better, should be 3 games at least though.

                      Perhaps I'm reading the BBC report wrongly, but it says to me that the ref awarded Coventry a penalty from which they scored, and turned the outcome of the game.

                      Its OK banning the player after the game having watched numerous camera angles from televised games, but that luxury doesn't come about with most games, and a subsequent ban does not remedy injustices that happen on the pitch at the time of the incident.

                      More onus needs to be put on the referee and other officials, no matter how hard that might be.

                        No doubt if VAR had been available the penalty wouldn't have been given and he would have been booked. That would have been more fair in terms of the course of the game but would have been too lenient on Godden IMO.
