This week we take a look at the awesome games this weekend. We also ask when should a player STAY on his feet and ask what punishment should Andre Marriner receive?

Good work on "Lie down and fake it" Araz.... Got it after the second clue by virtue of being a Gooner, but it was hilarious hearing Ant and Matt just wracking their brains for defenders based on injury-related stats.

More please!

Thanks Sam, yes it was hilarious, watching those two go barking up the wrong tree. It was hard to keep the laughter in!

You have to go down if you have been impeded and you cannot play to an advantage and want to get a call. I mean honestly, think back to how many times you were fouled as a player and stayed on your feet and had a foul called in your favor. 0 times ever would be my guess. Referees created this issue

If there is contact, and it lowers your chance of getting in a goal scoring position then you can go down. Where it becomes unacceptable is the Sturridge dives of the past few weeks. He pre-emts the challenge and goes down before it's even made, that is a dive!
