Today's theme is people in football who, well, really don't help themselves. Historically, you might consider Joey Barton to head up this list - on one hand, Joey craves being thought of as a football intellect. On the other hand, he likes to put his cigar out in a team mate's eye. Mario Ballotelli would probably get selected if this list became an XI - Mario wants to win the Ballon d'Or one day, but by the same token likes to let off fireworks in his bathroom.

There are a number of ways to solve the problem of diving and play-acting, but they all come with their own problems. In Chico Flores' case, there is no doubt that he warrants a suspension, otherwise what's to stop him doing it in every game?

When Ashley Young starts a game or is introduced as a substitute the Twitterati has an ever growing tendency to complain. Is this attitude inflicted due to his inconsistency or has the England international become a scapegoat? Under David Moyes, Ashley Young is having one of his better seasons at Manchester United.

Would a more consistent approach from managers towards their players help eradicate diving from the game? Aside from Moyes, we have seen different stances from different bosses, such as Mourinho on the weekend who was quick to defend Ramires' apparent dive by claiming it was a stone-wall penalty.

Is Diving Cheating or Is It Part of the Game?

In the not so distant past, when football was a contact sport, the art of diving was almost non-existent. I am not saying it didn't happen, but that nowadays a player is protected by the referees so much that any touch by an opponent will allow the player to dive to the floor knowing that the referee will more than likely award a free kick.

We're through. It's not been pretty but England have exceeded expectations by winning their group. I watched in frustration as Ukraine dominated possession, had the lion's share of the chances and were very unlucky not to draw the game at the very least. They were far more positive, fluent in possession and attractive to watch. They also failed to qualify.
