Ever since Lineker’s beloved Leicester joined the PL he’s forgotten all about playing for us. Really an arsehole these days, as if he never dived before in his career. Idiot.

Let's hope all the bad publicity together with the stories about wages, layers leaving or Poch being posted can be used to develop a bunker mentality. If it is Spurs vs the rest of the world so be it

The more Dele gets criticised for diving (whether the criticism is justified or not), the more refs assume he's diving, even if he's been genuinely fouled. The reputation he's gaining now will see us being denied nailed-on penalties at key moments of key games somewhere down the line, so the criticism isn't exactly 'irrelevant'. It's one part of his game that definitely needs to be straightened out.
