    Glad to see somethings actually being done about it, whether or not its effective we'll have to wait and see.

    I know Danny Murphy isn't everyone's cup of tea, but I do think that's going a tad too far. Still, fair play to you, say it as you see it...

    Geezzzz, no Drogba? You'd think they'd want a diving expert on the panel.

    It could do with a couple of strikers on the panel. Defenders are always gonna stick together. They'll be calling for lots of dives.

    That said, they'll probably be right.

    F**k me, finally some affirmative action on one of the biggest blights of the game. With all the money & exorbitant wages in football administration they only now realise that something needs to be done about this ? Honestly, who's running the game Stevie Wonder ?

    Next thing I'd like to see tightened up is the holding and shirt-grabbing in the PB.

    A fuss from the BBC as usual that there's "only" one woman on the panel.

    Quite apart from the fact that the women's game is vastly inferior and smaller in scale, popularity and value than the men's, and the fact that single decisions can mean much more in terms of monetary impact in the men's game - the panel will only be judging a male sport, so why should the FA feel the need to include any women at all?

    I've no problem with the inclusion of female professionals on the panel but why does the BBC feel the need to highlight the fact that she's the "only" one when it's completely irrelevant?

    Because feminism has become just another marketing channel for sales, clicks and attention.

    I get irked by twitterstorms about "manels". I first came across them when I was a speaker on a tech industry panel which was excoriated by a cabal of hackettes for being male, pale and stale; I didn't like the suggestion that I was an agent of patriarchy and oppression. I've also been a conference producer and know what a bugger it is to find people to fill speaking slots. One is reliant on vanity trumping sensible time management. So, I get arsed off about furores of this sort. I'm sure it's tough to get reputable professionals to join a panel like this for little reward.

    So I'd be on your side if the BBC really was making a "fuss". But it isn't. There's a throwaway line in the article. Some poor galley slave charged with writing a dozen pieces of content before lunchtime scanned the list of thirteen names, didn't know much about many of them, but thought "ooh, one's a woman. Quick sentence about that saves me googling any less obvious facts". Any more than that, you're imagining.

    No Robert Pires?

    All joking aside, this is excellent news. Just hope they are up to the job.

    Ex-Arsenal player, ex-Liverpool player, ex-Man City player (plus vocal Man City fan)... The three teams who dive the most well represented on the panel.

    So what do they review? Will Rashford's dive be on the agenda?

    It's only if the dive leads to a penalty or the wrongly punished defender getting sent off I think

    Hmmm

    Missing a trick there. Why not review every suspect dive. Being banned irrespective of wether your team gained an advantage is a very quick way of bringing it to a stop.

    Imagine a 5 match ban for the diver and a 100k fine to the club for each offence.

    Should be means tested in some way. 100k would sink some clubs but means nothing at all to others. Points deduction would hurt everyone though if enough offences were racked up.

    Aguero should be looked at. Play acting to get the guy sent off.
