Biggest Floopers (Divers) In Football??
LiverpoolBoy (Liverpool) 7 years ago
Divers Cristiano Ronaldo, Eduardo, and Drogba
Yogan (Chelsea) 7 years ago
Yeah surely Eduardo after the Celtic incident he woukd easily be counted it is a blatant excuse by Wenger about his injury. Others probably would include Ronaldo and Pedersen. A lot of people are saying Morten, but they haven't provided a video.... I might find one later, from Youtube. It was disgusting to see him go down like that. Oh, El Hadji Diouf is a diver as well.... I just despise of them.... What's the point especially Gilardino?
Markodon (NK Dinamo Zagreb) 7 years ago
Eduardo dived once in his career, doesn't make him the biggest diver. Everybody's crucified him just cause the media made a circus out of it!
ManUK (Manchester United) 6 years ago
That's because it was such an obvious blatant dive
Franboy (Barcelona) 7 years ago
True, there are players exaggerate but many players trying to influence the referee. This is modern football! ! !

Yamsy (Liverpool) 7 years ago
Gilardinho is an obvious candidate, he's among the top divers...
Incuteration (Everton) 7 years ago
Italians: Materazzi, Toni, Totti, Gilardino and more.... Could not list them all here, my post would be too overcrowded

Maicon, he was a disgrace against Milan the last past sunday, the goal that pandev scored was because a dive of maicon
SirStig (Arsenal) 6 years ago
See. Ronaldo because a simple nudge can just bring him down
Ciankc (Manchester United) 6 years ago
More awesome dives:

Cristiano ronaldo dive:

Juno (AC Milan) 6 years ago
The first one was 2 idiotic headbutts...
Jetlifari (Arsenal) 6 years ago
At least we all know Rooney doesn't dive. He even said “I’d never dive. I’d like to think of myself as an honest player. That’s the way I play. I don’t like diving, football doesn’t need it.”

This vid was made by a Man UTD fan btw



And Gerrard never goes to ground because he stated "players like Carvalho and Ronaldo are damaging the game with their dives.If I saw a team-mate doing it, I definitely have a word. I don't think there's anything worse than a player diving when no-one has been anywhere near him, it's ruining the game."


Let's not mention it, English players never dive right...
Juno (AC Milan) 6 years ago
ROFL. Fantastic video clips Jet! That's so 'cool'!
Jetlifari (Arsenal) 6 years ago
Hahaha! Wait for their comments about cheating before the World Cup, guarantee they'll say something...
Pragathish (AC Milan) 6 years ago
Wonderful, wonderful
Pragathish (AC Milan) 6 years ago
And here's another two for consideration:
Frank Lampard diving!

English players never dive...Hmm
Jetlifari (Arsenal) 6 years ago
Hahaha! At least Fat Frank is overweight so he has an excuse lol
Sam (Footytube Moderator) 6 years ago
That Rooney dive against Campbell and the Invincibles still makes me mad!
Vivaldi (AC Milan) 6 years ago
That must be the worst dive ever:

Fostervold (Norwegian league)

Highburykev (Arsenal) 6 years ago
Blatantly drogba.......AND lehmann - even though he is a keeper

Jetlifari (Arsenal) 6 years ago
Lol! What clowns! I remember an even worse one by Lehmann...

Hahahahahah I could watch it 100 times it's so funny
ACMilan21 (AC Milan) 6 years ago
I think despite general agreement, Italian players don't really dive that much. I'm not saying that none of them do, but not nearly as much as you would think. Lots of players (Totti or De Rossi for example) have cleaned up their acts and really don't anymore....Even Gilardino.
I think that diving happens just about everywhere, but not really that much.
This is definitively the best:

The worst is that the ref actually gives the penalty
Juno (AC Milan) 6 years ago
Muhahahahha.... Csrofl.    Dive by himself and gets a penalty?!    That's the worst referee and assistants by a mile.
Jetlifari (Arsenal) 6 years ago
Football is so unfair! And he was offside too....  What tournament was this? The teams seem to be from Honduras and Mexico...
ManUK (Manchester United) 6 years ago
OMG loool! That's the freaking worst ref I've ever seen, and terrible diving skills
ManUK (Manchester United) 6 years ago
Dida had problems ever since  
ManUK (Manchester United) 6 years ago
Makesure you watch the end of this one too  
Ant (Liverpool) 6 years ago
Pragathish (AC Milan) 6 years ago
I'll always defend,this is NOT a dive.Go see my explanation here:

ManUK (Manchester United) 6 years ago
Ok but that'll take some major explaining lol unless he pulled something
Ant (Liverpool) 6 years ago
If it looks like a duck and it sounds like a duck, there's a good chance its a duck.

Why would he throw his arms up into the air, roll around, stand up shouting and screaming, redfaced?
Senthil (Chelsea) 6 years ago
He is crying and laughing at same time !
Pragathish (AC Milan) 6 years ago
Crying in pain maybe?
And it was followed by some fair play.... If your opposite team player dived and cried for a foul, then you'd give him a hand and help him to stand up?
Even Jesus Christ wouldn't do that
SyLex (Adelaide United) 6 years ago
Here is another (funnier) explanation of what may of caused De Rossi's dive in above video (Link: ) Looks like Zizou is on the prowl....Lol
ScooterHayes (Chelsea) 6 years ago
Hold on. I pause-checked the video. De Rossie actually didn't dive.... His heel got stepped on. You can see the defenders foot clawing the back of his of you watch carefully, and he falls a step later.... It's actually a legit call.

Go figure.
